If you have the earflap on a needle, you can cut the yarn and useit for the other earflap. Then cut the yarn, leaving the second earflap on a needle.
Use the same yarn to cast on 15 stitches, then knit the first earflap with the right side facing from the needle on which it's held onto your circ. Then cast on 28 more stitches and knit on the second earflap. You'll do this all with the yarn you started the cast on with. The other strings left hanging from the earflaps can be woven into the inside of the had later.
