Step 2: Prep for fitting

Picture of Prep for fitting
After that you should have a bag sorta thing with two openings. Use the
line you already sewed as the middle and flatten it out, the line you sewed
is the back. So match the the top of the sewed part to the front and sew
a loop, then fold the two other sides equally and loop it again and end it.
Now you have four corner thingies that are even. Real beanies have like 6-8
sewn curves. Four is fast and easier.

I'm a n00b when it comes to sewing this stuff. I'm making a smurf hat for a friend using your method with part of a torn bedsheet, so it's a thinner cotton rather than fleece. I have the "bag sorta thing" ready, but I don't understand what you mean as far as closing the top opening and sewing a "loop."
