You should have a knitted piece looking like the scan below:
Now sew the two edges together, forming a circle. Weave in all ends.
Take a short bit of the yarn, weave in the needle like shown below. In at the top, out and in just above
the button, out and in just below the button:
Then take the two ends of the yarn and tie together in a knot. Weave in ends. Then grab the bottom where
the edges were sewn together and the area where the "magic button" is and give a little
"pull". You can "fluff" and position the hoo-hoo into a shape like those shown at the
beginning of the pattern.
Pin on and where proudly. Will anyone know what it exactly is? I doubt it... *vbeg*
