Using DPN’s

I’m trying to use 2 DPN’s for only 4 stitches to make some ears but just can’t work out how to do this.

Hi and welcome to KH!
Are you following a pattern and would you give us the name and designer?

If not you can look up patterns for the kind of ears you’d like and follow that. With DPNs you’re just knitting back and forth as you would with straights or even circulars.

Is this for a small toy? Are you trying to knit 4 stitches in the round? If so, could you do a 4 stitch i-cord? Trust might be an easier way to knit a small number of stitches in the round!
