Fasten Off, and weave in ends.

Fold top over and stuff with polyfil.  

To create colored potion for your crochet cauldron, use watercolor paints to color polyfil and let dry.  I used a napkin, not a paint brush, to help get the right coverage.  Only a small portion (whatever amount will be visible from the opening) needs to be colored/dyed.  

Note: This pattern is written by closing each round with a Sl St, rather than working continuously.  Working continuously *shouldn’t* affect the overall shape, but I have not worked the pattern in that fashion to guarantee that to be the case.
