Ch 34 (if you want to make the height taller or shorter, simply add or subtract chains as needed).
Row 1: work a dc in the 4th ch from the hook, then a dc in each ch across.
Row 2: Ch 3 and turn. Work a bpdc in the first st and in each st across. Work a dc in the topmost chain of the turning chain.
Row 3: Ch 3 and turn. Work a dc in the first st and in each st across. Work a dc in the topmost chain of the turning chain.
Repeat rows 2 and 3 until piece measures 18 inches from beginning.
Weave in all ends. With a matching piece of yarn seam starting edge to ending edge together to create a tube. With matching piece of yarn work a loose running stitch around top of tube. Pull tight to create crown and knot tightly.
To make a pom pom, cut a piece of yarn approximately 12 inches long. Wrap yarn around 4 fingers about 150 times and slide yarn bundle carefully off of your fingers. Tie yarn around bundle tightly. Note: to prevent pom from coming apart later, try running a stripe of how glue along yarn before tying it around the bundle, then tie tightly. Cut all loops and trim yarn ends of pom pom until it looks nice and even. Tie to top of hat and weave in ends.
