10 live stitches reamin.
Draw working yarn through live stitches twice and pull tight, secure.
Make pom pom* 4 inches long and attach to the top of the hat where stitches were pulled tight.
*To make pom pom, wrap yarn around a 4 or 5 inch piece of cardboard about 120 times, or until at your
desired fluffiness. I enjoy a very fluffy pom. Then have a length of yarn to pull through loops, and secure
in a knot, then cut once at one end of the cardboard.




So this is the pattern for the hat I had been working on for sometime. Finally it is online here and on ravelry, so i hope to be done for awhile. All this learning about computers and pdf files, my head is spinning enough for one day.
