Water Lily Lace Scarf

Designed by Jenny Stark

Visualize a pond filled with gorgeous, purple water lilies. Consider how the roots are firmly planted down in the mud at the bottom of the pond where they find stability and nourishment. Sense the cool waters, cleansing and sustaining the plant. Finally, reflect on the pristine beauty of the blossom that floats above everything – a symbol of purity, renewal, and grace. May the lovely colors of these yarns and the beauty of this lace pattern bring the same calming, lifting feelings to your mind as you create it and then wear it or share it.

Farmer’s Market Bag

Designed by Ace Beorchia

With farmer’s market season right around the corner, now is the perfect time to make a Farmer’s Market Bag! The stitches in this pattern create a very stretchy material perfect for small and larger items alike. This is a quick knit, and you’ll be showing off your farmer’s market goodies in no time!

Tag @ace_knits on Instagram to get your Farmer’s Market Bag featured!

LOOM: KB ‘Premium’ Chunky Round Loom Set, orange loom, 48 pegs

YARN: 51 grams (approx. 83 meters) of any 100% cotton yarn; Lily’s Sugar’n Cream in “Autumn Leaves Ombre” used in sample

NOTIONS: knitting tool, tapestry needle

LEVEL: Beginner/Early Intermediate

 

ABBREVIATIONS

Approx – Approximately

k – knit stitch (May substitute with u-stitch)

st(s) – stitch(es)

rnd(s) – round(s)

tk – triple knit (see instructions below)

 

‘Triple Knit’ Stitch Instructions 

The triple knit stitch creates a lengthened stitch using one peg. To work the triple knit stitch, start by knitting the peg normally. However, rather than continuing to the next peg in the round, bring the yarn back in front of the same peg in the opposite direction (as if you were going to turn and go the opposite direction). Knit the peg again—creating the second knit on the same peg. Finally, on the same peg, turn the yarn in front of the peg in the opposite direction one last time. (The yarn should be in the same position as when you originally started the stitch.) Knit the peg one last time.

In simpler terms, knit the same stitch three times in a row—keeping the yarn in front of the peg on each knit.

 

INSTRUCTIONS

Skipping every other peg, cast on 24 sts and begin to work in the round. Throughout most of the pattern, only work on the live pegs (the 24 pegs from the cast on).

Rnd 1: k across entire row (24 sts)

Rnds 2-22: tk across entire row (24 sts)

 

Short-row Increases

Next, you will create short rows on the two sides of the bag where the handle will attach. To create the short rows, number your active pegs (1-24) and do the following:

Row 1: tk pegs 1 to 6; turn

Row 2: tk pegs 5 to 1; turn

Row 3: tk pegs 2 to 5; turn

Row 4: tk pegs 4 to 2; turn

Row 5: tk pegs 3 to 18; turn

Row 6: tk pegs 17 to 13; turn

Row 7: tk pegs 14 to 17; turn

Row 8: tk pegs 16 to 14; turn

Row 9: tk pegs 15 to 24; turn

 

Top of Bag

Now that the short rows are complete, use the following instructions to complete the top of the bag:

Rnd 1: k across (24 sts)

Rnd 2: e-wrap all 48 pegs. k previous 24 sts. Each peg should now have one wrap of yarn.

Rnd 3: k across entire row of 48 sts

Rnd 4: k across entire row of 48 sts

Bind off very loosely using the basic bind off method.

 

Strap

Cast on 8 sts.

Row 1: k across; turn

Repeat row 1 until strap is desired length. (Sample strap is 20 inches.)

Bind off using the basic bind off method.

The edges of the strap will naturally curve in, giving the straps an i-cord appearance.

 

Finishing

To finish the bag, first tighten the cast on row (see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3yUxTMi2Fv0 for an example).

Next, similar to finishing a hat, weave the loose end from the cast on through the 24 cast on stitches. Pull tightly to cinch closed the bottom of the bag.

Finally, using the mattress stitch, sew the handle to the bag at the top of the short row edges on both sides of the bag.

Weave in all ends.

 

Tip

Place something flat in the bottom of your bag to give it some width and structure.

Open Rib Stitch (double knit in the round)

This is a great stitch for a chunky look, and is very easy to create even for a beginner. One side of knit is chunky rib, and the other side, regular stockinette.

Sample knit with Loops and Threads, Barcelona yarn, #4.

To begin, cast on all 52 pegs in stockinette.  Then move (outer loom only) every other loop to next peg, so that one peg is empty and the next one has 2 loops. Do this all around the outer loom.

 

Weave in stockinette always wrapping the pegs with 2 loops on the outer loom, and on the inner loom, wrap all pegs. Be sure to keep the empty pegs empty.

This will create 3 loops on every other peg and the empty pegs stay empty. Work with loose tension.

Continue the round so that the pegs with 3 loops, now have 4 loops.

The outer loom will have 4 loops on ‘every other’ peg.

Hook over 2 loops over 2 loops on outer loom and 1 loop over 1 loop on the inner loom. Then repeat the process.

The inner loom will have just 2 loops.  Hook 1  over 1.

To create the headband above, work a total of 14 rounds in open rib stitch. A thinner or wider band can be made, depending on how many rounds are worked and desired. Bind off with basic bind off with crochet hook.

  • NOT a beginner project

  • HI, Are you having a problem with this stitch? If so, please tell us about it as we want to make it easy for you. At what point are you having a problem and maybe we can explain it better.
    Thanks, Pat

  • I have both sizes of looms for the rotating loom and am wondering what other loom sizes or head sizes they fit. I can’t wear hats off the 36 peg loom. Prefer the 41, 48 or 60 peg looms, 1/2”.

  • HI SHARON,
    The 52 peg loom makes hats about 20-21″ in circumference working in double knit. The 60 peg one will make hats up to 23-24″ depending on the yarn and stitch pattern used, in double knit. If you have other size looms, you can attach them to the base of your loom with the loom connectors. Also, you can make single knit hats by using just the outer looms of both sizes. Does this answer you questions? If not, let me know how we can help further.

Cable Stitch (double knit in the round)

Learn the Mock CABLE Stitch!

New stitch for the Rotating Double Knit Loom!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Working double knit ‘in the round’ is worked slightly different than double knit on a straight loom. The straight loom is worked to one end, and then back. In the round, the loom is worked in one direction around the loom.

 

The weight of the yarn and the stitch will determine the size from 20-22”.  Works great with #4 or #5 yarn. Sample knit with Red Heart Soft, Seafoam.

Rnd(s)=round(s)      st(sts)=stitch(es)

NOTES: Each cable design is 4 stitches wide.  Space between each design is 4 or 5 sts.  For headband (in photo) total 16 rounds.

Mark each set of design pegs with markers or yarn on outer loom.  Gold yarn marks the 4 peg cable stitches.

Work the cable design on the 4 stitch sections only.  After twisting the loops, wrap all pegs with stockinette stitch and hook over.

Cast on in stockinette stitch.

Rnd 1: Stockinette stitch

Rnd 2: Twist loop 1 & 2 ( place loop from cable peg 1 onto cable peg 2.  Place loop from cable peg 2 onto peg 1) and Twist loop 3 & 4 (place loop from cable peg 3 onto peg 4 and, then and place cable peg 4 onto peg 3, see photo).  Push loops down and then wrap in stockinette and hook over.

 

Rnd 3: Stockinette all pegs

Rnd 4: Twist cable peg 2 & 3, (place loop from peg 3 onto peg 2, and loop from peg 2 onto cable peg 3).  Wrap in stockinette and hook over.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rnd 5: Stockinette all.

Repeat all rnds (2-5) 3 additional times. For headband above, knit a total of 16 rnds. Bind Off with basic bind off with crochet hook at loom, and at anchor yarn. Remove the anchor yarn and weave in all yarn tails.

Design of Sweater: Sleeves are raglan for comfort, front open neckline with drawstring.

This little sweater is easy to adjust since it is all knit in stockinette for the body and crisscross stitch for the hem and cuffs, and rib for the neckline.

 

INSTRUCTIONS

Sweater Front

Cast On 30 (34) stitches in (G) color yarn.  Lay anchor yarn.

Rows 1-4: Crisscross stitch. This border could also be done in rib stitch.

Cut the yarn with 3” tail.

Tie on main color (M).  Lay tails across stitches between rows of pegs.

Rows 5-8 (5-10):  Stockinette

Rows 9-21 (11-23):  Chickie design (12 rows)

Look at each row in chart starting with number 1 at bottom.  Your center of garment is peg #15 (16).  Tie in your accent (G) color on stitch # 14 between the rows of pegs.  Wrap peg number 12 (13) from front to back, drag the yarn over to peg # 18 (19) and wrap front to back.  Lay the accent yarn aside where you end with it.  Now start the row by weaving the stockinette stitch with main color, only skipping the pegs covered with the accent yarn.  This is how you will do each of the design rows following the scale.

Rows 22-27 (24-29): Stockinette

Neckline and sleeve shaping:

Mark the center of knitting with piece of yarn or pin.

The arm shaping will start now.

You will also start the neckline at center of sweater front.

Arm shaping:

*Row 1:  Decrease (1) stitch each end of board.  Work row.

*Row 2:  Knit one regular row.

Do these 2 *rows a total of 6 (7) times.

At neckline, twist the (4) center stitches.  (2) loops to right of center will be lifted and placed on the (2) pegs to left side of center.  The (2) loops to left of center will be lifted and placed on the (2) pegs to right side of center.  This will make the center very strong and a nice accent.

Work the 2 sides of front in 2 separate pieces.

Tie on another skein of yarn to the right side knitting at twisted stitches.

Work each side separately while doing the decrease for the sleeve shaping.

When you have completed the decrease rows ending with a regular row, you are ready to do the shoulders.

Shoulders: Bind Off 2 (3) stitches at beginning of left side, and same on end of right side. The remaining stitches are the neckline.

Neckline:

Rows 1-4:  Rib stitch for each side of front.

Bind Off loosely.  Pick up 2 loops, pull (1) thru (1).  Pick up (1) additional loop, always alternating the boards.  Do this to both sides of front of sweater.  Bind Off loosely at anchor yarn for hemline of sweater front.

 

Back of Sweater:

Repeat all steps as front of sweater, only leave out the design and do not separate the neckline.  Skip the neckline section, and the design section.  Work directly to shoulders, after doing the arm shaping.

 

Sleeve:  (knit 2)

Cast on 18 (22) stitches with accent color.  Lay anchor yarn.

Rows 1-4:  Crisscross Stitch or Rib stitch to match the sweater front and back.

Tie on main color (M).

*Row 1:  Increase (1) stitch each end.  Work row in stockinette stitch.

*Row 2:  Knit (1) row in stockinette.

Repeat these (2)* rows for 3 (4) additional times.

Arm shaping:

Decrease (1) stitch each end of loom every row until (2) stitches remain.

Bind Off.  Bind Off loosely at cuff.

Tie String:

With main color yarn and crochet hook, crochet a chain approximately 28” (30”) long.  Knot at both ends several times to form a small ball that conceals the tails of yarn.

Sewing the pieces together:

Sew the side seams of sweater front and sweater back with invisible stitch.

Sew the shoulders and neckline with invisible stitch.

Sew each sleeve from cuff to arm shaping.  Place each sleeve in sleeve openings, matching the underarm seams, and the center of sleeve to shoulder seam.  Secure these two areas with a strand of yarn.  Be sure you place the sleeve seam at underarm.

Work in the front of sweater with front of sleeve by sewing with invisible stitch.

Work in the back of sweater with back of sleeve by sewing with invisible stitch.  Make extra stitches at underarm and shoulder to secure for active little toddlers.

Front finishing:

Use your crochet hook to weave the braided piece for a shoelace up the front opening.  The center of the braid should be placed behind the twisted stitches.  Lace the braid from side to side ending with ends at top of each side of opening.

Tuck in any yarn tails with crochet hook.

Lacy Shimmer Hat & Cowl (double knit)

Most versatile cowl for any weather! Wear it for warmth, or just as a fashion statement. Knit in fine, lightweight yarn.

LOOM: ‘Rotating’ Double Knit Loom with 60 Peg Loom Toppers for cowl. Both are set up for double knit.

YARN: Lion Brand ‘Shawl in a Ball’, #4 worsted yarn. Cotton and Acrylic blend, machine wash and lay flat to dry. Color, Feng Shui Grey. 1 skein is enough for both cowl and hat.

STITCHES: Rib, Stockinette

NOTIONS: Knit hook, crochet hook, darning needle

SIZE: 12” x 23”, laying flat (doubled) for cowl. Hat fits 22-24” adult head.

GAUGE: 3 sts and 4 rnds=1”

 

 

 

 

 

INSTRUCTIONS

COWL Cast on all 60 pegs in Stockinette. Lay anchor yarn around loom to secure stitches.

Round 1: Rib Stitch

Repeat round one until knit is 12” from cast on stitches, or 50 rounds.

Bind off loosely in rib stitch with crochet hook. Remove from loom.
Bind off loosely at anchor yarn with basic bind off working one strand over one . Carefully remove the anchor yarn.
Weave in any yarn tails. Both edges should be very stretchy.
Your cowl should adapt to scrunched or rolled neck piece. It is also wide enough to be pulled up to cover your head.

HAT Matching hat is made with the original 52 peg looms. Fits adult 22-24” head.

Cast on all 52 pegs in Stockinette. Lay anchor yarn around loom.

Rounds 1-6: Rib stitch

Rounds 7-18: Stockinette for fullness around head.

Change to Rib stitch and work until the hat measures approximately 9” from cast on.
Cut yarn with about 12” of yarn tail remaining.
Move inner loops onto outer pegs, so that there are 2 loops on each of the outer pegs and the inner loom is empty.
Place the yarn tail onto darning needle. Go around loom and pick up the loops on each peg and place onto the yarn. Once the loops are all on the yarn, remove hat from loom. Gather the top of hat by pulling gently on yarn. Before pulling tight, go around the stitches again for a strong gathering yarn. Gather snuggly. Knot on inside of hat with some securing stitches. Trim and weave in ends.

Pom-pom: Start wrapping the yarn around fingers or 4” wide cardboard. Wrap approximately 100 rounds with the section of the skein of yarn to reflect the colors desired. Tie the rounds of yarn securely with a double strand of yarn with 4” tails. Once tied, these tails can be used to tie the pompom onto the hat. Cut the loops so that they are single strands.
Cut pompom to desired length and shape. Tie and knot to inside of hat. Weave in yarn tails.

  • So excited to get this pattern, I enjoy all the KB Looms, when working on the free patterns if there is a chart and written directions, I try to work from the chart then double check my work with the written pattern, and in doing so, this time I found a mistake in the written pattern I want to share with others, to help save time.
    In row 17 the pattern shows a total of 41 sts there should only be 40 sts in total. The pattern shows the row ending with a R1. It should end with the W1, Only trying to help, from one crafter to another. Thank you again for the free patterns I really enjoy them. CK

Introducing…Loom Holder Connectors!

Now any loom can rotate on an elevated base!

The Loom Holder Connectors convert the ‘Rotating’ Double Knit Loom base into a Universal Loom Holder.

Kit includes: (3) loom holder connectors and (6) fabric bands (3 smaller bands are attached to the holders.  To attach wider looms, replace the small bands with the larger ones.)

 

 

How it works…

The loom holder consists of a leg connector, and a ‘tray’. Each holder connector snaps onto a leg of the rotating base.  The ‘tray’ or, top part of the connector,  holds the loom. The trays rotate around to adjust to each loom.  This allows the holders to work with various loom sizes.  The connectors are very strong and sturdy.

 

 

 

 

To begin set up, simply evaluate your loom size, and insert the 3 legs into the rotating base using either the outer, or the inner openings on base. If you are setting up a large round loom, the outer leg locations work best, and smaller looms use the inner leg locations.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rotate the trays to best position to fit your particular loom. Now take your loom and set on top of the 3 trays. Turn and adjust the trays so that they are balanced with the rotating base. Once loom is placed comfortably on trays, simply wrap the fabric bands around loom and secure to bottom of tray.  The bands will hook over one of the knobs, located on bottom of the tray. You can use your fingers or knit hook to attach bands.

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you are working with a larger loom with wider base, for example, the afghan loom, remove the small fabric bands and replace with the larger fabric bands that come in the kit.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The connectors work to hold many loom shapes and sizes.

  • WOW! This is just wonderful news. Thank you to the folks at Knitting Board!

  • OMG!!! I had asked you if you could make a rotating loom with 36pegs, and if not, could you make something rotating to hold looms. You answered back by saying to watch for something new at the end of the year… And you did it. Actually you made 2 new items, but you made the rotating loom bigger, not smaller. But, unfortunately, I cant purchase both items because they are a little to pricy. I will not use the original loom that comes with the rotating base, so it would be a waste to purchase it. All in all, it is a terrific new concept.

  • Can the looms that are made for the rotating loom, be put on this one? I Have the orginal and just bought the new one Without the base). Was wondering if it can be put on this so that I can have 2 projects going at the same time.

  • This sounds great, what is the price of the Loom Holder connectors.? I already have the rotating double knit loom……..Jettie

  • I think that is awesome

  • I like it! I have enjoyed all the looms I have purchased over the years. This is the best idea so far. As soon as Christmas is over, I’m purchasing this!

  • Wow this is awesome. Looks like it will come in handy for all KB loooms

  • Brilliant! This will help me continue to work a a blanket using the S KB loom?

  • I have made a similar set up with some blocks on my KB rotating loom so I could use my KB orange loom, and it worked, but I seriously love what your team came up with, and would love to give these a try? Thanks to your team for always coming up with great ideas?

  • Where is the add to cart? Can’t find the option to buy….

  • This is an awesome idea! When will it be available?

  • Interesting

  • Hi
    Can I use the rotating connectors on a loops and thread s loom ?

  • Is there a round loom I can make a hat with Chunky wool.(6). Also
    is the small loom on the Rotating Loom the hat size for a baby?

    Thank you kindly

    Fran

  • Do you have a bigger floor version?
    I have a set of the table top connectors.

  • Will you be selling the loom holder and connectors separately? I do not need anymore looms, but I would really love to have the holder and connectors and would purchase them immediately if they became available. Buying more looms would just be a waste of money for me as I have all I need or want. Just the holder and connectors would be wonderful.

Little Christmas Stocking… quick knit

The Little Christmas Stocking is the ultimate Christmas quick-knit! The stocking is just the right size for an ornament, an accessory, or a small gift holder. Adjust the length of the leg to fit more whimsical items inside such as wine bottles! The holiday possibilities are endless!

By Ace Beorchia

LOOM: ‘Premium’ Chunky Round Knit Loom, green 24 peg loom

YARN: Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick and Quick in colors Cilantro (green), Cranberry (red), and Fisherman (cream) used in sample.

MC (leg and sole): Approx 17 yards (27g) chunky weight yarn.  CC1 (hem): Approx 17 yards (27g) chunky weight yarn. CC2 (heel and toe): Approx 9 yards (13g) chunky weight yarn.

NOTIONS:  knitting tool, tapestry needle

GAUGE: 6 sts x 10 rows = 2”

SIZE:  Approx 8” tall x 4” wide

 

ABBREVIATIONS

Approx=approximately  k=knit stitch (May substitute with u-stitch)  st(s)=stitch(es) rnd(s)=round(s)  MC=main color  CC1=contrast color 1  CC2=contrast color 2

INSTRUCTIONS

Cast on 24 sts in CC1. Prepare to work in the round.

Rnds 1-20: k in CC1.

Form hem:  Lift all stitches from the cast on row up onto the loom, one by one, being careful to keep your stitches straight. Pull the bottom stitches over the top stitches to complete the hem.

LEG

Rnds 1-10: k in MC

Note: For a longer stocking leg, knit additional rounds until desired length is achieved.

HEEL

The heel is completed using short-row shaping over 12 pegs in CC2.

Unlike other socks, this pattern does not require a “wrap and turn.” This can result in tiny gaps at the turning point of the heel. Although not necessary for this pattern, use the wrap and turn method if closing the gaps is desired.

Note: Number the pegs on your loom for ease of following the pattern.

Knit from peg 1 to 12. Turn.

Knit from peg 11 to 2. Turn.

Knit from peg 3 to 10. Turn.

Knit from peg 9 to 4. Turn.

Knit from peg 5 to 8. Turn.

Knit from peg 7 to 4. Turn.

Knit from peg 5 to 9. Turn.

Knit from peg 8 to 3. Turn.

Knit from peg 4 to 10. Turn.

Knit from peg 9 to 2. Turn.

Knit from peg 3 to 11. Turn.

Knit from peg 10 to 1. Turn.

FOOT

Rnds 1-11: k in MC

Note: For a longer stocking foot, knit additional rounds until desired length is achieved.

TOE

Repeat instructions for heel in CC2.

Rnd 1: k in CC2

Bind off with basic removal method. Leave enough yarn to sew up the toe.

Turn stocking inside-out. Using the mattress stitch, close the toe by sewing together stitches: 1 & 24, 2 & 23, 3 & 22, etc.… to end of toe (stitches 12 & 13).

This will create a simple seam on the top of the foot of the toe. For a seamless bind off, use the Kitchener Stitch. (http://www.knittingboard.com/kitchener-stitch-page/)

Create a 6” loop (knit I-cord, crocheted chain, yarn, or ribbon) and attach just above the base of the hem on the heel side of the stocking

Weave in all ends.

  • I’m having a lot of fun looming the spiral spender hat but I’m confused on rounds 16-23 . it says to repeat rounds 8 through 13 but that would stop on row 22 I’m confused on what I knit on rounds 22 and 23 .? Thank you for sharing this fun pattern with all of us .

  • Hi Ronda,
    Thank you for pointing this out. It should say, Repeat from 8-15.

  • I really love this pattern! Can it be done with the 3/8 round loom, using a #4 weight yarn?

Farrow Hat with versatile brim (Double Knit)

Multi-color hat can be worn with rolled brim, full open brim like a derby, or front brim.  The top fits snugly around the top of the head.  Very warm for cold winter outdoor fun!

 

 

LOOM: ‘Rotating’ Double Knit Loom with 60 Peg Looms Toppers.

YARN:  Sample knit with Malabrigo Mecha Chunky, 100% superwash wool.  Approximately 50 yds of each color needed- 3 colors: Lluvias Blue (B), Volcan gold/brown (V), Plomo Gray (G), with 10 yds of white chunky roving for accent.

NOTIONS:  Knit hook, crochet hook, scissors, darning needle

STITCHES:  Stockinette, Ribbing, b/b weave

SIZE:  Large adult (23-25” head circumference)

 

 

 

INSTRUCTIONS

Cast On with G yarn in stockinette stitch.  Lay anchor yarn of any #5 yarn.

Round 1-2: Stockinette.

Tie on V yarn to first back peg at peg 1 to begin vertical stripes.

Next 10 rounds: Weave the G yarn on every other peg until you get to beginning arrow.  Lay the G yarn down and continue wrapping the empty pegs with the V yarn.

This will create the 2 colors on every other peg, so you will have the stripes running vertically.  Be sure that the yarn colors always fall on the same color for each peg. Cut both yarns with 2-3″ tails.

Add a loop knot of white yarn.  Tie to the yarn tails. Work one rnd of the white yarn in stockinette. Hook over.  Cut and tie. Add B yarn.

Next 8 rounds: Rib stitch with B yarn. Begin on peg 1. Cut and tie B yarn.

Next round: Change to white yarn, work stockinette stitch. Cut and tie.

Next 12 rounds:  Add V yarn at peg 1, work stockinette stitch. Cut and tie.

Next round: Add white yarn, work stockinette stitch.  Cut and tie.

Add the G yarn for top of hat.

Next 5 rounds: With G yarn, stockinette stitch.

HAT TOP AND DECREASE

Decrease row:  Starting at peg 1, both looms, lift loop over to next peg, peg 2, on right, leaving a peg empty. Count 4 pegs to right, starting with peg with double loops.  Lift next loop and move it to right creating another empty peg.  Then count over to right, 4 pegs starting with peg with double loops, and pick up next loop.  Place it on next peg to right; and continue this shift around the loom.  If it seems easier, you can do this on inner loom and then the outer loom as long as the empty pegs are same stitch, and the same amount of pegs are between the double loops.

Now, you should have 12 less pegs with yarn on them, on each loom.

Work all pegs with yarn in b/b weave.  This means to wrap each stitch front to back, going straight across.  Work all pegs in this manner, skipping the empty pegs.  Hook over all stitches; pick up both loops on the pegs with the extra loop.

Work this process for one additional rnd.  All pegs will have just 2 loops.  Hook over.  Cut yarn leaving approximately 18” of yarn tail attached.

Move the back loops from inner loom to outer loom, being sure to match the pegs of each stitch.

Work the pegs so that you have only one loop on each of the 48 pegs being used.  They should be in groups of 4 pegs.

In each set of 4 loops, move loop 1 onto peg 2.  Move loop 4 onto peg 3.  You now have 2 pegs with 2 loops in each set.

Work the pegs so that you have only one loop on the 2 pegs.  Add the darning needle to your yarn tail.

Carefully, go around the loom picking up all the loops on the pegs.  Lift the hat from the loom.  Go around the loops again with the sewing yarn so that you have a very strong base to use to draw the hat closed.  You are now ready to finish the top of hat.

Slowly draw the yarn snug to close in the top of hat.  Take darning needle into inside of hat to do reinforcement stitches to complete the closure.  Trim any yarn tails and weave into the knit.

FINISHING BRIM WITH CROCHET EDGE

Using crochet hook, insert into first stitch on anchor yarn at any starting point.  Add the V yarn onto hook.  Pull thru loop on hook, and pick up next loop on anchor yarn.  You are creating a crochet chain on all the stitches being careful to pick up each strand separately.  Continue around the brim until you meet the beginning of the crochet.  Connect the first loop to the last so that you have a nice continuous edge.  Pull both ends of V yarn to inside of hat, tie and weave into knit.  Carefully cut the anchor at several points and remove all.  Weave in any yarn tails from the color joints.

You may want to block the hat lightly to desired shape for the brim.

You may want to wear it with front brim turned up with a pretty decorative stick pin, or add a button to keep the brim in place.  However you choose to wear the brim of your hat, it is classy and warm, and fun to wear!
