FO leaving tail for sewing.

Lightly stuff the hat to keep it straight.

Belt

Using Yarn B:

CH 46.

Row 1: In the 2nd CH from the hook, SC 45.

FO and leave tail for sewing.

Assembly

You can choose to sew the pieces together or use a hot glue gun for a quicker and easier finish.

For sewing:

To make sure the stitches of the belt are not visible, sew through the stem of row 24 of part 1 of the hat and then through the back of the stem of each single crochet stitch of the belt. Continue around the circumference of the hat. Weave in ends.

Embroider the buckle detail around approximately 2 stitches of the belt.

Sew the hat to the headband in whatever position you like.
