Next rnd is an estimate, you may have more/less, below is what I worked. See pic above see yarn needle?  This is where you join yarn.

Rnd 6: Sc in next 32sts, *Slst in next st of head, slst in next st of body,* sc in next 47sts, slst in next st of body, slst in next st of head, join.  (79sc, 4slst)

You have 2 options: ear muffs, or a hat.  

Ear Muffs:

Ch24, repeat rnds 1 & 2 once more after the end of rnd 2, ch1, and slst back down the 24chs, fasten off leaving long tail to sew onto head.  

Attach your ear muffs to the top of your snowman, eyeball where you think it should be, and you might want to use bobby pins to keep in place while sewing on.
