Assembling Ears:
Place the inner ear on top of the outer ear. With black yarn and tapestry needle, sew the inner
ear onto the outer ear all the way around until you have reached the bottom of the ear. Fasten
off the black yarn and weave in ends. With the tail from the inner ear and tapestry needle, sew
the bottom of the inner ear to the outer ear. Fasten off and weave ends. Repeat for other ear.

Finishing the hat:
 Using needle and white thread, sew the buttons onto snout pieces. Using tapestry needle, sew cheeks onto the snout pieces as well. Sew the two snout pieces onto the front of the hat. I usually pin them down to keep the pieces from shifting when sewing them to the hat. Attach the nose to the center (between the two snout pieces) and sew
the ears to the top of the hat.
 Braids: Cut 9 strands of yarn (I did 3 in each color) for each side of the hat (18 strands in total) measuring approximately 24″. You can make them longer or shorter depending on how long you would like your braids. Fold the strands in half and pull through the earflap. Make a knot to secure the braids to the earflap. Braid the strands. When you’ve reached the desired length of your braids, knot the bottom and trim the ends so that they are even. Repeat for the other side.
