I love the button. I love it so much I decided to make it the BRAND. The hat is designed to wear the button over your right ear, or even slightly to the front, but you can wear it as you like.
In the unlikelihood that you don’t love it as much as I do, it can be removed. It is attached in such a away so that if you follow these instructions, you won’t damage the fabric. On the front, or right side of the piece, slip the point of the scissors through the yarn between the button holes and snip! DO NOT use this method to remove the button holding the pom! You will cut the strings too short to reattach the pom after laundering. Remove it by untieing it from the inside.
