Cut the yarn leaving long tail (50 cm min). To seam up the hat I am going to use a Mattress Stitch. Thread the tail with a large yarn needle. Pull the tail through remaining stitches. Now line up two sides by pinching them together with right side facing out. Use stitch markers to help yourself. Make sure you have found first stitch on each side otherwise you may end up with lopsided seam.

Insert your needle underneath the two bars between sel s and next knit stitch on the right side and draw yarn through, after that insert the needle underneath the two bars between sel s and next knit stitch on the left side and draw the yarn through again. Go on seaming up picking up bars on the right and on the left sides. Weave in ends. Attach pom pom.
