  • End:
  • Without binding-off, cut the yarn leaving a 10” tail, pull it through the remaining STS, push through the top hole to the inside and then weave in the ends.
  •  
  • Block:
  • To block this hat I use a saucer. Like a teacup and saucer. ;) I put it inside the hat, so the bottom “swirl” is in the center of the saucer and the saucer is bulging outward, spritz it with some water, pat dry with a clean towel and let it dry overnight.
