The Mouth

– with 3.5mm hook

Make a slip knot and grab a stitch where you wish to start your hat, loosely YO and pull through you loop. Important to keep working loosely so that you don’t pull the hat tight together.

To make the eye lashes and detail along pants if done the same way.

Attach a thread to your tapestry needle and pull up your yarn in the middle brown row (remember you did 3) and skip 3 sts and insert your needle and pull through, skip 3 sts and pull needle up, keep doing this, not to tightly

Make sure to stretch the hat to make sure it won’t be to tight, but snug. This is the way this hat has a rim, so if possible put the hat on the person you intend it for and pull yarn until it’s snug, tie a knot there. Leave your self some tail to work in. And also can be used to adjust the hat later if needed.
