3 more RNDS without decreasing.
Cut yarn tail about 1 foot long, add a yarn needle to it, and carefully
remove the sts from the circular needles, one at a time, threading the
tail through each stitch and then taking it off the needles.
When all sts are off the needles, pull yarn tightly to gather.
Knot the yarn close to the hat, and cut a tail of yarn 3" long.
Weave this back under a few stitches inside hat.
Make a pompom for the top and tie it in tightly

Use color #2 and dp needles, pick up 8 sts on one side
of hat. (I make them slightly more toward the front of the hat
since the ears are slightly forward. Rows 1 - 7: Knit

st at the beginning of each row, till you are down to just 2 sts. Knit
those 2 sts for 10". Cast off.
