Tie off, leaving a long thread of black yarn which you will use to stitch the hat together.

With yellow yarn stars can be stitched on to the Wizards hat, they can just be randomly placed and made any size.

Stitching the hat together:

instead of turning the hat right side in to sew it together you need to have the hat right side out.

This is because of the point at the top of the toy hat, if the hat is sewn together right side in, you may have a super hard time trying to pop the point of the Wizards hat out.

I find it is much easier to have the hat right side out and thread the end of my yarn down through the top of the point (pull the thread right through but don't pull it tight or you will lose the point of your hat), weave the thread back and forth through the rows, then start sewing the sides of the hat together.

In these pictures you'll see two Wizard's hats that were made using the same pattern shown above. I used the same multi colored yarn to do both of these hats.The one on the left was made by casting on 40 stitches and working right across each row as you normally would.

With the Wizard's toy hat on the right I cast on 40 stitches and began to knit as usual right across each row.

After knitting four rows I used 4 separate pieces of wool (I made 3 small balls of wool before I began to knit and used the original ball = 4) to knit a section of 10 stitches each. This creates a funky panelled look - rather groovy really!

Also instead of leaving a long piece of wool to use to stitch the hat together I just cut it off a few inches long , tied a knot in it, trimmed it a bit shorter and left it sticking up as the top of the hat.
