Rnd 1: sc in each sc around hat and both earflaps. (about 87 sc)

Fasten off, weave in any loose ends.

The following picture shows the bunny ears and edging attached.

Flower

For flower pattern click here, or on the flower's picture.

For Braids

Cut five – 40 inch strands of white yarn, and five – 40 inch strands of light pink yarn.

Pull all ten strands through the bottom of the earflap so that you have twenty – 20 inch strands.

Braid the strands and tie them off leaving 4 inches of length at the bottom.

Repeat process on opposite side.

Assembly

1. attach bunny ears to both sides of hat.

2. attach flower by stitching it over the left bunny ear.
