To block, lay out flat on ironing board, pin in place, use a damp cloth and a moderately hot iron and press carefully stretching work to measure your headsize. Allow to dry thoroughly.

Fold work in half along the 31st row, place foundation ch along the edges of last several rows and sew up seam all the way across and along the short end (seam comes at back of hat). Then work 4 rows of s c around bottom edge, easing in work if necessary to adjust to your own headsize. Turn under a 1 inch hem at bottom. Tuck in about 2 inches at top and tack down. Fold ribbon as in illustration and sew to top of hat, 2½ inches from back seam.
