Put 1 SC in the end of the middle stripe and slst to the first SC. Finish off leaving a long tail for sewing on to the bear. Weave in your ends. Move on to the tassels.

Round 2: 2 sc in each sc around.
Round 3-8: SC around. At the end of round 8, slst in next. Fasten off leaving a long tail for sewing.
If you want a little poof on top, wrap some white yarn around 3 or 4 fingers about 6-8 times. Remove carefully from your fingers, cut another short piece, wrap it through the middle and tie a knot. Cut the loops.  Thread it through the top of the hat and knot on the inside.
Sew mouth piece at the bottom edge of it’s head.
Sew the scarf along the bottom of the head, sewing through both layers of the scarf, along the top edge of the scarf.
Slip the hat over one ear, sew  1 or2 rows up from the bottom of the hat, through both layers of the hat and through the ear.  When it is sewn on, roll the bottom of the hat up covering the sewing stitches.

Add on your button eyes.
