You can put the earflap in the L hand and use the knit or cable cast on to CO the 38 stitches. Then put the needle back into the R hand and knit the sts from the other earflap, then move the needle to the other hand to CO 16 more stitches, switch it back to the R hand and join for knitting in the round. That puts the beg of round just before one of the ear flaps instead of the center back, but it won't make any difference and is a lot more efficient than breaking the yarn and using the end to CO 8 stitches, then knit the earflap.
