For the hair: cut 9” lengths of the darker pink yarn, in groups of 3 strands, pull through the first row of the hat. Pull strand together to create the “topknot”. Using green yarn make a chain of sc to tie the strands of yarn together and trim the ends.
Using the picture as a guide sew features to the hat. Use black yarn to stitch eyelashes, and the darker pink yarn to make a smile.
