Step 5: Finish the Top of the Hat

Cut the yarn off with about a foot of extra yarn. Slip the remaining 8 stiches on to a crochet hook and pull the yarn through the 8 loops. Pull the yarn through to the inside of the hat, tie it off and cut off the excise

Step 6: Pick Up Stickhes for Ear Flaps

use the crochet hook to pick up 18 stitches on the bottom edge of your hat

here is my video on how to do this

Step 10: Sew on the Face

use the black yarn, yarn needle and a reference picture of a creeper face and sew the five pieces on.

I sewed the three nose pieces together first, then I sewed that on, then I sewed the eyes on.

Step 11: Make the Ties and Finish It Up

cut 12 pieces of the green that are between 4 and 5 feet long. use the crochet hook to pull the strands through one at a time and pull the ends of the strands are equal . separate the strands into 3 sets of 4, braid it and tie a knot at the end.

do this on both sides making sure the ties are even then tie the knot.

weave in any loose ends, fray check any knots, cut off any excess yarn and you're done.
