There are many ways to seam the hat closed. I like the whip stitch, but go with what you like. Seam up the edge and then weave yarn around the top (where the single crochet row is). Pull tight and weave in end for a secure fit.
Note: Give your hat a tug test once complete. Make sure no seam comes undone, so tug along the bottom and top. These hats may need to be stretched to be gently placed on a baby's head, and we don't want them falling apart.
To Finish: You do not need to add anything more to this hat design but if you wish a pom pom is always cute (you can get some very small pom pom makers) or glue/sew a premade one to the top. You can also tie a ribbon at the top or add a patch/button to the front.
