It's up to you where you want the stripe, I usually just eyeball it. Or you can do 2 rows of 60 stitches, stripe 2 rows, then finish with yellow.
If you want to border with different color, switch, tie off yellow.
On both sides for ears, stitch 9 across, turn, do not go into first stitch  
( decrease) go into second stitch, across-turn, go into second stitch, repeat til you have shape you want.  I usually leave 4 at bottom.  Single crochet down Oppisite side you started with ear.
Slip stitch bottom stitch only
Continue to other ear,( 1/2 way). ( ears should have equal distance apart on both sides). 
Slip stitch finish round all.

Add braids.
