Cut yarn, leaving 30cm, thread all stitches onto the yarn, pull to tighten






Cut 3 sets of 6 lengths of yarn. Fold the first set in half, stitch to the top of the hat, braid the tassels and tie a knot at the end. The other 2 sets should be folded in half and threaded through the holes in the ear flaps, braided and tied.
