When your hat is as long as you like it to be, cut the yarn leaving a 12" tail.
Thread the yarn through all of the loops on the needle and pull tight (a yarn needle makes this step a snap!)
Secure the end of the yarn to the inside of the hat, using a knot and weaving the end in and out of the knitting.
This hat makes a great gift for anyone in cold climates. You can take the project anywhere with you and pick up knitting where you left off without having to remember where you were in the pattern! It couldn't be easier.
