Weave tail through loops in top of hat and drop yarn to inside of hat tighten and knot off, weave in all ends. Make pom pom to attach to top of hat (could use bells or tassels also)

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hat 2

Follow as for hat 1

Rounds 1 through 9

Round 10 – hdc around. Finish off

Lay hat flat with the seam at the middle back. With Color A , make a loop as if you were going to start a chain (have a few inch tail on this). Put your hook through both layers of hat at corner, pull through the loop you just made and sc, sc across, finish off leaving a few inch tail. Pull tails to inside corners of hat and weave through a couple of stitches to secure it, making sure you end back up at the corners.

Make tassels, pull tails of tassels to inside corners and tie together with tails you had earlier. Weave in all ends
