Leave a long tail for sewing. Sew eyes and beak onto the front of the hat, use photo for placement. "Ears" Make 2, attatch on opposite sides. 4 pieces of yarn, approximately 2.5" Fold hat in half, face up. attach 3 rows down on the fold by pulling half the length through the pole of the stitch. Taking both halves, tie using and over hand knot. Trim length. Ties Cut 12 pieces of yarn approximately 20" Split into groups of 6. Fold in half. Attach to the 3rd middle chain of the earflaps by pulling the loop of the yarn pieces through the chain and then pulling the ends of the yard through the loop. Braid each set, keep length even. Tie off. Trim ends.
  3. I say new-ish in the sense that I've been lurking for like a year, idk why it's taken me so long to finally make an account.. but that's the past right? I'm Jill and I'm 23, I've only been crocheting for about 10 months.. but I've fallen in love with it and I've amazed myself at how fast I've been able to learn (thanks youtube!) I'm big on making hats and been deemed the Official Hatter of a lot of my friends. My son has more hats than he knows what to do with! I usually work my own patterns for my hats, but to date have only written one down. Any who, I feel as though I'm rambling and I'm sure we'll get to know each other better as time goes on
