To complete the hat sl st to join your last row of crochet to the chain row. Knot the yarn off and leave a 6" tail. Thread this piece of yarn onto a yarn needle and run a gathering stitch through the top of your hat. Pull to gather the top together. Knott off and weave an inch or two of the cut piece of yarn into the hat then cut off the rest.
To make a pompom for your hat, wrap yarn around two fingers 60 times. Slide the wrapped yarn off your fingers. Tie and knot a 12" piece of yarn securely around the center of the wrapped yarn. Cut the looped ends but be careful not to cut the yarn you used to tie the center. Trim the ends of the yarn until you have a nice neat pompom.
Using a yarn needle, attach the pompom to the top of the hat. To do this, thread one of the long pieces of yarn through the yarn needle and bring the needle from the outside of the hat (at the top) to the inside of the hat. Repeat this with the second piece of yarn. Knott the two ends securely to each other and cut off the excess.
Cuff up the bottom of the hat. Your hat is now ready for Barbie to wear.
