Row 8: Ch 1, sc2tog, sc, sc2tog, turn.
Row 9: Ch 1, sc3tog; fasten off
Join yarn in first unworked stitch, ch 1 (top center of heart)
Row 8: sc2tog, sc, sc2tog, ch 1; turn
Row 9: sc3tog
sc around heart, ch 1 when you get to the bottom tip of the heart and continue sc around; work 1 sl st in top center of heart when going around.
Fasten off leaving a long tail for sewing to hat.

Banner
Using White yarn and D Hook ch 5.
Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook and across (4)
Row 2: ch 1, turn; sc 4
Repeat Row 2 until banner measures desired length - mine was about 2.25"
sc around banner on corners (sc, ch 1, sc) all in one st
Fasten off leaving a long tail for sewing to heart.

MOM
Use Black yarn and yarn needle to stitch MOM on the banner.  I stitch the O on first in the center of the banner that way it's easier to center the M's on either side.

Whip stitch the banner to the heart, after you’ve stitched on “MOM” or any other wording.  Then whip stitch heart to hat.
