The cool part is you can customize the causes you support by hinting at them with the contrast color. Try playing around with different colorways, or even embroidering designs in the triangles of the ears.
This hat is worked on the round so no seaming, but you will have to sew on the ears.
Sport weight yarn in main color
Small amount of sport weight yarn in contrast color.
Using a J-10/6.00MM sized hook and Caron's One Pound or other sport weight yarn in dark pink (or your choice of color):
R1-Ch 2, 6 sc in second chain from hook
R2-2 sc in each sc around (12 sts)
R3 2 sc in each around (24 sts)
R4- sc 1 in ea (24 sts)
R5-*Sc 1, 2 sc in next sc*, repeat 12 times (36 sts)
R6- sc 1 in ea (36 sts)
R7-*sc 2, 2 sc in next sc*, repeat 12 times (48 sts)
R8- sc 1 in ea (48 sts)
R9-*sc 3, 2 sc in next sc*, repeat 12 times (60 sts)
R10-sc 1 in ea (60 sts)
R11-*sc 4, 2 sc in next sc*, repeat 12 times (72 sts)
R12-28sc 1 in ea (72 sts) try the hat on around 23 or 24 rows to determine if you need all 28 rows, or if you need more rows. Stop when you're satisfied and bind off, weaving in the tail on the wrong side.
Using a J-10/6.00MM hook crochet 4 triangles, 2 in main color and 2 in a contrast color.
R1-Ch 9 Turn
R2-Sc 8, Ch 1 Turn (9 sts)
R3 - Sc 6, sc2tog, Ch 1 Turn (8 sts)
R4 - Sc 5, sc2tog, Ch 1 Turn (7 sts)
R5 - Sc 4, sc2tog, Ch 1 Turn (6 sts)
R6 - Sc 3, sc2tog, Ch 1 Turn (5 sts)
R7 - Sc 2, sc2tog, Ch 1 Turn (4 sts)
R8 - Sc 1, sc2tog, Ch 1 Turn (3 sts)
R9, Sc2tog (1sts)
Sandwich two triangles together with the contrast color in front and use the main color to sc all around the ear, making sure to weave or put any loose ends inside the sandwich. You can fit approximately 8 sts up and 8 sts down the other side. Leave bottom edge open. Sew ears to hat, fold hat in half to line up ears before sewing in. Weave in any loose ends on the inside of the hat.

My Halloween costume for this year
I added the stripes by sewing on additional white stretch fabric and ironing on purple ribbon
I did a little macrame for the hoodie strings and used yarn for the stitches
I added the frosting with glitter glue.

This was a retirement gift for the captain's step mom. Here it is in progress, I ended up having to re do at least half, due to bunching. When I was done I was quite pleased, the m's came out well, I made a template and traced in chalk on the quilt, you can see it in the photo. She really liked it, and I'm glad :)
