Allow the piece to curl upon itself

Take one piece and lay it flat from side to side. Take the second piece and lay it at a right angle over the centre of the first piece. Take a length of yarn and fasten round the centre with a knot. See picture.

Next. Turn the work by 90 degrees and fold both ends of the first piece down and use the same piece of yarn and tie round the whole centre of the work. There should be 4 gold pillars now with a bobble shape in the centre of the work

Take one end of the piece and sew it to the first stitch marker, then the second piece to the second stitch marker and so on. Make sure the bobble is on the up side.

Curl the bottom white part of the crown out and over the stitches of the pillars.
