Fasten off leaving a long tail for closing up the beanie.

To close the beanie, use a whip stitch around the top of the beanie. Thread a tapestry needle and insert the needle down into the first stitch, then up through the next one. Repeat all the way around, then pull the hat closed. If you would like, attach a faux fur Pom Pom after the hat is all done.
