Pattern Notes: Worked from the bottom up. Chain counts as an hdc. Do not turn at the end of the row. A video is available for the 3rd loop. You may try to work with your hat right side in to get to the 3rd loop easily and turn it right side out when you get to the band. Here is the 3rd loop video showing how.
Round 1: Fhdc 40, join with a slip stitch to form a loop.

Fastening off leaving a 6” long tail, weave the tail through the stitches of the last row and gently pull to cinch the top closed.
To make a pompom, I used the large Clover Pompom maker but you may use your fingers or a piece of cardboard to wind your yarn, tie, and cut.
