Purple outside part. Make two. Repeat the same steps as above (the pink inside) except use the H hook. Be sure to leave a tail that is 6 inches.

Stitch the pink inside part to the purple outside part using the pink tail. If you make small stitches and pull them somewhat tight, the pink yarn should be barely noticeable from the back of the purple part.
