, using yarn matching the hat, tie a knot in one end , leaving a small tassel . Braid the yarn until you have just enough
yarn at the end to tie another knot , forming a second tassel. Tie a knot about 1 and ½ down from the point of the hat forming
a top knot at the top of the hat. Cut 6 -36" pieces of desired yarns and pull through ear flaps dividing in half. Braid together
