Note: Hats are worked in the round. Use a stitch marker or a scrap piece of yarn to mark the beginning of each row. Then you don’t have to count every row. Do not join unless instructed to.
Parentheses indicate a repeat. Repeat the stitches in the parentheses for the number of times indicated.
The bracketed number  is the number of stitches at the end of each row.
I spread my increases out so there isn’t a seam on the finished piece. If you do not like this method, you can do regular increases.
If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at email@example.com.

Fasten off. Sew to the top of the hat.
Cut 6 inch section of ribbon. Thread ribbon through the screw eye and tie to hold it in place. Place the hat over the cork, pulling the ribbon through the hat. Here you can glue the hat in place to keep it from slipping.
