Finishing:
Bolts: Sew 1st bolt on hat any side of the hat, I placed mine so that the top of the bolt was just under the 1st green row and the bottom was just above the 2nd to last row. Place the 2nd bolt directly across on the other side of the hat. I found it easier to get the 2nd bolt aligned right by placing the hat on the mug.
Scar:
With C2 and a yarn needle, sew on a scar to the front of the hat.
