Fold in half and trim the ends off other end.

 

 

 

 

 

 

With hook pull the center loop through bottom of earflap.

With hook (or I find it easier to use my fingers) pull tails through this loop.

Separate into 3 groups to make a braid about 6 inches long, tie off with a knot and trim even.

On hat between rounds 9 and 10, surface crochet all around using the same color yarn as the rim of the goggles for the strap – break yarn and weave in ends.

This part will be working around the chain; first the normal stitches then around the bottom of the chain.
