Make Twisted Cord using three 80" lengths of yarn. Weave the cord through the stitches about 1" down from the top edge of the hat. Pull ends of cord to gather fabric and secure with a knot.

Twisted Cord
Bring all six cut ends of yarn together and tie in a knot close to the end to form a large loop. Secure the knotted end to a stable surface or have someone hold it. Slip a knitting needle into the loop and hold the yarn just below the loop and needle. Hold the yarn taut, and twirl the needle, twisting the yarn, until the entire length is tightly twisted and begins to twist back on itself. Bring the loop end and the knotted end together; tie tightly so the cord will not untwist. Smooth out the kinks so the cord lies flat and twists evenly.
