FINISHING

Cut yarn, leaving a long tail, and with blunt needle thread tail through remaining stitches, slipping stitches off the needles. Pull tight to gather hole closed, and sew to inside of hat. Weave in all ends.

Starting at one earflap point pick up stitches (Usually I use a crochet hook to pick up stitches and then transfer them from hook to needles), ending at the same earflap point,  and knit 5-6 Rnds.

Note: It is better to pick up more, rather than less stitches - otherwise the hat will be too tight around the face.

Leave a long tail and with the help of blunt needle sew the last row stitch by stitch to the left side of the hat. Sew a pompon at the top if you wish.
