Assembly

Measure a piece of yarn about 20 cm long, or long enough to wrap all the way around the plushie’s head. Weave the ends through back loops from rnd 15 at the inner brim. The ends should be placed at opposite ends of the hat as shown, about 18-20 stitches. Carefully knot the yarn and trim the ends. Place on the plushie’s head and enjoy!
