Now it is time to seam the hat.
Cut the yarn leaving a tail that is 3 times the height of the hat. Align two edges of the hat with the right side facing you. Seam the hat by using horizontal invisible method or any other method you know. Check the video to learn how I did it.
When you reach the top of the hat close the crown by picking up last 5 or 6 stitches pulling the needle inside and outside.
Weave in ends and enjoy your masterpiece! If you liked my video tutorial, please do not forget to subscribe to my Youtube channel and follow me on social media.
