Cut your yarn, leaving a couple feet or more. Thread the end into a darning needle (with a blunt tip) and pull that through the stitches on your knitting needle. Then pull snug like a drawstring, and sew up the back of the hat. Look here and scroll down to finishing for how to seam.

Thank you so much for your reply:) but......
omg, i still don't get it!!!! what do you mean by pulling the darning needle through the stitches??? when i thread the yarn through a darning needle, do i thread it like a regular needle with two strings equal length???? which sides do i start??? the end with the cut yarn, or the other end???? to pull, do i slip the darning needle under a stitch, pull it out of the knitting needle and what??? this is so confusing

Bye the way, i find a good illustration for seamming for those of you who are having the same trouble...

You have some stitches left on your needle, right? Use the working yarn that you've been knitting with, cut it like Sue said, and thread that on a needle. Put the needle through the actual stitches that are on the needle and let them off the needle and onto your threading yarn.

When all of the stitches are on the yarn, pull tight like a drawstring.

If you still have 96 stitches on the needle, you have decrease rows to do before you fasten off the top of the hat.

You probably need to get down to around 20 stitches or less before you're done.
