NOTES:

This pattern is created by first working the two earflaps on either side of the loom. Without removing the earflaps, the pattern is then worked like a regular hat.

Colorwork on knitting looms often has a tight tension. Thus, for a better fit, ensure that tension remains loose throughout the colorwork sections.

Mark pegs (1-48) on the loom for ease in following this pattern.

In the earflap sections, the pegs within the parentheses indicate the pegs that should have working stitches on them at the end of the row.

Attach pom pom if desired.
