Cast off by taking a darning needle and attaching it to the end of the long tail. Take the darning needle and run through the loops on Rnd 69, Slip off the needles and pull tight to close the hat.

Make sure to hide all the strings. The first 20 rows should be folded up. I let the row curl up.

Take the 2 buttons and sew them to the front of the hat. Enjoy your new hat!
