Knit one, then do a double increase in the center stitch, then knit the last. It's where the cord part of the earflap widens to make the ear part. Knit the stitch, but don't take it off the left needle. Bring the yarn forward and purl it, but don't take it off, then put the yarn back, knit it and take it off as you normally would. If you can watch videos, there's one on this site.
If you don't like the way that increase looks, you can use another.

She described how to do the double inc which is the kpk into one stitch, and it's similar to the kfb on the Increase page, but not quite the same, you don't need to work in the back leg.

Knit into the st as usual but leave it on the L needle. Bring the yarn to the front and purl into it, the move yarn to the back and knit into it again. It may be easier for you to k yo k into the stitch, it looks the same - knit in the st, wrap the yarn around the needle and knit into it agai. Instead of a hole like a regular YO, it looks like a purl stitch.
