Position the eyes and beak to determine where you want to attach them to the hat. Make sure they are centered between the ear flaps.

Sew the eyes onto the hat. Make sure they overlap slightly.

Sew the beak onto the hat. The top of the beak should slightly overlap the bottom of the eyes.

Sew the pupils onto the eyes. They should be positioned towards the middle to give the turkey a cross eyed look.

Sew the gobbler onto the side of the beak.

Sew the corkscrews onto the top of the hat.

Cut five 30” strands of the red, orange & gold yarns (total= 15 strands).

Holding all of the strands, fold in half and pass the folded loop through the bottom of the ear flap (use hook to help).

Pass the strand ends through the loop and pull tight to form a knot.

Divide the strands into three sections (10 strands in each) and braid.  Repeat for 2nd braid.
