  • 1. To make each plait I have used 2 bunches of white yearn and 1 red one. I have tied the plait with red ribbon, sewed jingle bell onto the ribbon securing the whole thing from falling apart. Then I have sewn both of the plaits to the inside of the hat.

  • 2. I have made the belt from red yearn with half trebles, using crochet hook, but almost any stitch, even knitting instead of crochet would be good. I have surrounded the red belt with black yarn using single crochet stitch. As a final step I have attached end of the belt to the buckle.
