Knitting Giraffe Help

i’m an amateur knitter and just started this giraffe. could someone explain to me how to do the ears. i have no idea how to turn it. and also my eight st are the front part of the neck and the other 2 needles with 4 st are the side/back. is that right? the pattern link is below.

When you come to the instruction ‘turn’ in a pattern, it means turn your work as if you were at the end of a row, even if you have sts left. This produces ‘short rows’ which can help shaping.
