Use these three “double strands” to make a short braid (about 4-6″), knot the end and trim.

Using color C, count 30 sts across the front of the hat and pick up 20 stitches along CO edge. Knit and finish same as the right ear flap.

Pom Pom:
Using Color A and/or C, make a pom pom 2 1/4″ in diameter with either a pom pom maker or two washers.

Attach to the top of hat by using the long ends of yarn tied around the center of pom pom.

Sew in all remaining ends, wear and enjoy!
