Sew the teeth right in the middle of te hat, it's okay if it goes a little bit over the edge.

Cheeks/upperlip/mouth

Row 5: 2sctog, ch 1 and sc across the none, bind off leaving a long tail.

Sew the nose with the lower part over the cheeks and the upper part a little but on to the hat.

With the long tail embroider a stripe from the none, over the cheeks and over the teeth. Bind off.

You can choose to add some whiskers, I chose not to because I think it looks cute already!

Round 1: 6 sc in a magic ring.
Round 2: ch 1, 2 sc in every st (12 st), bind off. 

With black 
Round 1: 6 sc in a magic ring, bind off.

Ears

Round 2: 1 sc in the same st as ch 1, 2 sc in the next 4 st, 1 in the last st (10 st), bind the light brown color off, leave the dark brown on the hook. 



Now put the light brown half circle on to the dark brown on your hook en crochet through both color. 




Round 3: *1 sc, 2 sc in same st* repeat to end and bind of leaving a long tail. 




Sew the ears in the 3th row from the middle of the hat. 

Beaver tail

Ch 16
Row 1: hdc in 3th ch from hook, hdc across (14 st), ch 2, turn. 
Row 2: 2 hdc in first st, 12 hdc, 2 hdc in last st (16 st), ch 2, turn.

Holding the tail upside down, join with white on the right side of the tail and sc across to the left side of the tail. 

Now sew the tail on to the hat right between the earflaps. 


Braided tails

With dark brown, light brown and white. 
Cut 16 straps of each color about 16 inch (40 cm)  and split the colors in 2.
Grap with a bigger hook the straps from the inside out on the earflap (see image) and pull through the earflap, now pull the ends of the straps through the loop and pull.
Sort the colors, make a braid en knot the ends. Cut even.



And you did it! A super cute beaver hat is in the pocket!!
