Finishing:
Cut the yarn, leaving a tail about 3 feet long. Close the top of the hat by drawing yarn through all but 4 of the remaining stitches. Pull tight and fasten securely on the inside. Bring the yarn back through to the outside, just to the right of the needle containing the 4 remaining stitches. Work 4-st I-cord* for 1.5 inches and fasten off by drawing thread through stitches, pulling tight and fastening securely.
Weave in ends.
 

*I-cord

Using a double pointed needle, knit the 4 stitches. Do NOT turn. Slide the stitches to the right end of the needle and knit. Continue in this way, knitting the stitches, then sliding them back to the right end of the needle.
