Work sl st across the top to connect the the sides to form the rectangluar hat.  Fasten off and weave in ends.


Pom-Poms (make 2):

Wrap MC around your four fingers for desired width of pom-pom.  Wrap more than you think you will need for a nice and full pom-pom.  Tie another piece of yarn around the center of the wraps tightly.  Leave this tie long for fastening to hat.  Cut loops and trim ends neatly.  Use tie around pom-pom to fasten to underside of corner of hat. (Pom-pom maker can be used instead.)
