  • 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.

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!

  • Can this be made in one piece? So no sewing parts

  • Can this be made as one piece.

  • Yes. You will need a knitting loom that has twice the amount of pegs as called for in the pattern.

  • Hi Gin, yes, you can. You will need a knitting loom that has twice the amount of pegs as called for in the pattern. You will still need to create the bottom piece separately though as that goes in the opposite direction of the hood.

  • Hi Isela, love this hood, and would love to make it. But l don’t have the all in one loom. Can it be made on any other loom?

  • Kathy, you can make it on any other loom that is similar gauge to the All-n-One loom. You will need the same amount of pegs too.

Molly Toque

This beautiful toque features lovely, painterly colorwork and a hemmed brim for extra warmth. The optional braids add a touch of fun! Intermediate level pattern.

Designed by Nicole Cox

Loom:  KB All-n-One Loom, using 72 or 84 pegs. Color pattern works in multiples of 12 stitches.

Yarn: (MC) Knit picks Chroma Worsted, #4 weight, 70% superwash wool, 30% nylon, 198/100 g, 1 skein, color # 26552, Avalon. (CC) Lion Brand Wool-Ease, worsted #4 weight, 80% Acrylic, 20% wool, 197 yds/180 m, 3 oz, 1 skein, color #104, Blush Heather. (CC1) Cascade Yarns 220 superwash, 100% Superwash Wool, worsted #4 weight, 100 g/3.5 oz, 220 yds/200 m, 1 skein, color #817, Aran.

Finished Measurements:  19”/48.3 cm around x 8 ½”/21.6 cm high or 22”/55.9 cm around x 8 ½”/21.6 cm, sizes are approximate.

Gauge:  16 sts and 26 rows = 4”/10.2 cm square in stockinette. Please take the time to check gauge for proper width.

Notions: Knitting hook, crochet hook, measuring tape, Tapestry/yarn needle, medium pom-pom maker (optional)

Pattern Notes

  • The hat is knit in the round from the bottom up.
  • A hem is formed after row 24 to form a double thick hat brim for extra warmth around the ears.
  • The regular knit stitch is recommended for all colorwork areas of this hat. Carry your floats for a neat appearance inside of hat and neater stitches.
  • Use 72 pegs for large child/sm teen or adult. Use 84 pegs adult/teen sizes. It’s best to do a gauge swatch to check for size. Stranded knitting has less stretch and can produce a smaller hat than regular stockinette.
  • 2 charts are included, one for the brim and one for the main portion of the hat.

 INSTRUCTIONS

Foundation round:  Chain CO (72) (84) pegs with 1 strand MC; join to work in the round.

HAT BRIM

Rounds 1-24: *[K1 in CC1, k1 in MC] repeat from * to end of rnd. Your total knitting should be 4”/10.2 cm. Add more rows if short. This will give you a 2”/5.1 cm brim once hemmed.

Form hem:  Lift all stitches from the cast on row up onto the loom, one by one, being careful to keep your stitches straight. Do not pull the bottom stitches over the top stitches, knit them together in the next round.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Begin Main Hat

Rounds 1-3: *K12 in CC1, rep from * to end of rnd.

Rounds 4-6: *K6 in CC, k6 in MC, rep from * to end of rnd.

Round 7: *[K1 in CC, k4 in MC, k1 in CC], rep from * to end of rnd.

Round 9: *K1 in MC, k3 in CC, k4 in MC, k3 in CC, k1 in MC, rep from * to end of rnd.

Round 10: *K2 in MC, [k3 in CC, k2 in MC] twice, rep from * to end of rnd.

Round 18: *[K1 in CC, k4 in MC, k1 in CC] twice, rep from * to end of rnd.

Repeat rounds 7-18 until hat measures 7”/17.8 cm. Note: You may adjust this length if you would like a longer slouchier hat. Leave 1 ½”/3.8 cm for the top portion of the hat.

Next round:  Knit in MC.

Repeat the last round until total work measures 8 ½”/21.6 cm or desired length.

Bind off hat using the gather method.

 

FINISHING Weave in ends and block hat to even out stitches. Make a medium size pom-pom using CC and secure it to the top of the hat. Follow directions for braids below.

Optional Braids (make two)

Cut 9 strands of CC, each measuring 40”/101.6 cm.

Align all strands and knot one end close to ends (this is the top of your braid).

Separate strands into 3 sections of 3 strands and braid to end.

Knot end, leaving 2”/5.1 cm.

Go to the top of your braid and using a yarn/tapestry needle threaded with a strand of CC, sew the strands together just below the knot. Make sure braid is flattened out to keep seam flat.

Sew braid to one side of the hat, inside of hat (about 1 ½”/3.8 cm from edge) hiding the seam.

Repeat above for 2nd braid.

  • Beautiful hat! Thank you for the pattern. When you refer to the “regular knit stitch” do you mean true knit stitch (the one that you do like a purl but pull yarn from above the loop on the peg) and not e-wrap knit stitch?

  • So beautiful ! I love the colors .

  • I have been looking for free patterns for quite some time and have been looking for them in the craft stores and can’t find them. I have arthritis in my hand and loom knitting seems to be the only craft I can handle. just looking for some thing different and these patterns look great . Thank you for any help you can give me,

  • Hello Christine, yes the “true” knit and “regular” knit stitch are the same thing. The e-wrap knit will be written as ewk in my patterns unless otherwise stated in the key.

  • In foundation round, it says CO. What is that? Thanks in advance.

  • Hello Cindy, CO is the abbreviation for cast on. Hope this helps!

‘Perfect Fit’ Hat on Double Knit Loom

“Can you decrease on the ‘Rotating’ Double Knit Loom to get a hat with a smooth fitted crown?”  YES!! With a series of decreases you will be able to create a nice flat rounded crown of hat.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Cuff is knit in separate piece to lay flat. Just a great fitting hat that you’ll love to wear.

Loom:  ‘Rotating’ Double Knit Loom set for double knit with 52 pegs

Yarn:  Red Heart Colorscape, 100% Acrylic, Color Acapulco, one skein

Stitches:  Stockinette

Notions Needed:  Knit hook, Crochet hook, Darning needle

Size:  10.5” deep X 10” wide laying flat: 9” deep with brim turned up. Head circumference 21-23”

Gauge:  3.5 sts X 5 rows= 1 inch

INSTRUCTIONS

Cast on 52 stitches in Stockinette.  Lay anchor yarn using #5 or #6 yarn, of contrast color.

Rnds 1-30:  Stockinette

Decrease Rnd #1:  Work 5 decrease stitches by moving one loop to adjacent peg on both looms.  There will be approximately 10 sts between each empty peg, but exact is not necessary.  You can use any stitch marker to note the empty pegs, so they don’t get wrapped.  Hook over and be sure to pick up the 2 loops on peg next to empty.

Blue yarn notes empty peg that has been decreased and has no yarn.

Work one regular rnd with no dec. Skip the empty pegs and keep in stockinette weave.  Work rnd in stockinette weave.

Decrease Rnd #2:  Work 2 decrease stitches between each of the previous or empty pegs, evenly spaced. This will leave different amounts of stitches between the empty pegs.  It will be 2 or 3, but exact is not necessary as long as you decrease by additional 10 stitches.  Work rnd skipping the empty pegs and be sure to hook over both loops on peg next to empty peg.

Work one regular rnd with no decrease. You have 37 loops remaining on the loom.

Decrease Rnd #3:  Decrease an additional 15 stitches by doing one decrease between the empty pegs.  This may leave 1 or 2 stitches between the empty pegs.  This is fine as long as you have just 22 stitches remaining on the loom.  Work row on all stitches.

Work one regular row with no decrease.

 

As you reduce the amount of stitches, you will be increasing the amount of empty pegs.  You will end with 22 stitches and are ready to bind off of loom.

Bind Off of Loom:  Cut working yarn with 20” of yarn tail.  This will be used later to remove the stitches.  On remaining stitches, move the inner loop onto peg on outer loom.  The inner loom will be empty.  The outer loom will have 2 loops on all remaining pegs.  Hook over the lower loop so that there is just one loop remaining.

Place the darning needle on the yarn tail.  Go around loom picking up the remaining stitches and placing them onto the yarn.  Once they are all on the yarn, you can remove the hat from the loom.  This will be the gathered top of hat.

BAND FOR BRIM (a separate piece)

Cast On 52 stitches in Stockinette.  Lay anchor yarn of contrast color #5 or #6 yarn.  Work 8 rnds in Stockinette stitch.  Bind off loosely with crochet hook.  Remove from loom.

Setting the band:  Lay hat flat and match the band to edge of hat.  They will be same length and both have an anchor yarn.  Cut a piece of yarn 25” long and place on darning needle to sew the pieces together.  Start at any point and pick up the loop on hat anchor yarn and then the loop on the band anchor yarn.  Be careful to not grab the fiber of the anchor yarn.  Keep alternating from hat to band, picking up the next loops.  Go around the entire hat.  Once all the loops are on the yarn, the anchor yarns can be gently pulled out.  Your joined pieces will look like this.

 

You will see that this creates a ‘hinge’ for which the band will fold over and not look rolled-it will stay in place.  The hat can still always be worn with the band turned down, if desired.

Return to top of hat and turn hat inside out.  Gently gather the 22 stitches with attached yarn for a smooth fitting top of hat.  Sew securely with yarn and darning needle to close in the top opening.  Knot yarn, trim ends, and weave ends into knit.  Trim any remaining yarn tails and weave into knit to complete.

  • love this loom. been waiting for instructions for decreasing stitches to make the crown of the hat smoother. Can’t wait to try it.
    would like to see a video along with the instructions because I don’t quite understand how to attach the band

  • Hi Norma,
    We can do a photo of the 2 pieces so you can see clearly how they lay together and are attached. Will add this to pattern. Check the pattern in a couple days for the addition.

Preemie Loom Knit Hat

 

Designed by Isela Phelps

Recently, we were contacted by a group who wanted to loom knit preemie hats for a hospital. We realized that we do not have any patterns on our website to fill this need, so we got to work right away and here it is, this size seems to fall right in the middle of the chart. We hope you enjoy the pattern. 

Important guideline when knitting items for babies: cotton is a good option for baby knits, wools may create allergic reactions and/or even asthma. Keep your stitches as tight and small as possible–small enough that little fingers cannot get caught in them. Avoid any sort of extra embellishments–they can fall off and baby can accidentally eat them. Wash all your items with dye-free, deodorant free detergent, do not use a dryer sheet when drying (typically, you will want to lay your items to dry flat to extend the life of the knitwear). After item is dry, check to make sure all the tail ends are still securely woven in. 

Preemies vary in size, some of them have small heads, as big as an apple, others are a little bigger. 

Knitting loom: His and Her Sock Looms, purple sock loom with 64 pegs was used in sample. To make a smaller preemie hat, use the orange sock loom (56 pegs).

Yarn: Approx 70 yds/21g of fingering weight cotton-merino blend. Sample was worked with Viking Bjork Cotton Merino (90% cotton, 10% merino) 50g/164yds in color 520 (pale pink).

Notions: knitting tool

Gauge: 13.5sts x 23= 2 inches in stockinette (with u-stitch).

Size: 9-inch in circumference, 5-inch length. It should fit up to an 11-inch circumference head.

Abbreviations

k=knit stitch. May substitute with u-stitch.

p=purl stitch

INSTRUCTIONS

Cast on 64 sts, join to work in the round. Sample used the ewrap cast on.

Round 1-10: *k2, p2: repeat from * to end of round.

Round 11: k to end of round.

Repeat Round 11: until item measures approximately 4.5 inches from cast on edge (it will grow to 5 inches once you block and set the stitches).

Next 3 rounds: *k2, p2; rep from * to end of round.

Bind off: Cut a piece of yarn that is approximately 16 inches in length, remove all the purl stitches onto this piece of yarn. Cut a second piece of yarn about 16 inches in length, remove all the knit stitches from the loom. Locate the first piece of yarn and cinch the purl stitches close. Locate the second piece of scrap yarn and cinch it all the knit stitches. Tightly weave all tail ends. Block to set the stitches.

  • I just love the look of this visor beanie and am certainly going to give it a go as soon as I can get the right looms which I hope are not too far away. 🙂

  • I can’t wait to make this hat! The design is very trendy and modern. Much cuter than anything store bought! Hats are my favorite things to loom!

  • Thank you so much for this pattern! I love visor beanies and this is adorable! As soon as i saw your pattern I started making it for my daughter, her birthday is in April. Thank you also for the notes on short rowing, i have never done them before and they are the greatest help to me. Thank you so much for sharing your pattern! I will post a pic when i have finished it. 🙂

  • Thank-you for pattern. I will give it a try . Love my rotating loom.

  • Sorry, but instructions are extremely confusing. Wish there was a video for this one. You have “Rows 1-5 (see notes for row by row instruction).” That section is 30 rows. Then you go back to Row 6. Do you make the 30 Rows, then go back to Row 6? There are many other instructions that are difficult to understand as well. “Pick up the wraps and the stitch together.” What are you doing exactly? Are you knitting 2 bottom stitches over a top stitch? There is no instruction to knit, it just says “pick up.” That doesn’t give me any further instruction. After I pick them up, what am I doing with them?

  • You first work the ewrap cast on and then the 5 ewrap knit rows. You then work the visor. This does not count toward the row count since it is short row shaping. Once the short row shaping is done you then work in the round. Once that is complete you bring up the cast on edge as you would to make any other brim. There is now 2 loops on each peg. You ewrap the row and knit both loops over the top loop treating them as one.

  • I want to thank you so, so much for the step by step instructions on the short rowing. I am new to them. I just finished all of the short rowing and it was so easy with your instructions and the visual aid of watching what was happening with my stitches, it has given me great confidence to tackle short rowing in the future. I really appreciate designers such as yourself giving freely to everyone. I would have gladly paid for the pattern. It is awesome! Can’t wait for it to be finished, but i am taking my time, so as not to make any mistakes. I just wanted to say again, Thank you very much! <3

  • I guess I am one of those that also need the video…I did the cast on, did the 5 rows, started the visor…the visor is curling…I do not understand what I have done wrong, used worsted yarn…maybe too thin…I just don’t know.

  • Your work will curl but once you bring up the cast on row and place on the pegs it will not.

  • Thank you…I think and hope I have it!!!

  • Denise Johnson. What does W&T mean?

  • W&T is wrap and turn. The same technique you use for socks.

‘Stripes’ Hat

Lots of stripes, all ways – vertical and horizontal!  This is a fun hat for any level of knitter.  Choose your favorite color combination, and let the stripes begin!

Loom: ‘Rotating’ Double Knit Loom

Yarn:  Two different yarns used in sample, both #5 Chunky. Premier Serenity Chunky, Smoke Heather, 1 skein. Red Heart Soft Essentials, Greyhound, 1 skein.  Both yarns are 100% Acrylic and machine washable.

Stitches:  Stockinette and Figure 8

Notions:  Knit Hook, Crochet Hook, Darning Needle

Size:  Adult, 10” deep

Gauge:  5 rounds=1 inch

Abbreviations:  Rnd (s)=Round(s),  Aprox=approximately   Lt gray yarn=yarn 1  dark gray heather=yarn 2

Vertical stripes:  These rnds are worked with both yarns, always covering the same pegs with each yarn.  To cast on the loom, create a separate slip knot with each yarn.  Place first yarn slip knot on beginning peg. Wrap around loom with first color. Then with second round, attach the second color on first peg on inner loom (opposite the loop knot with first color). Wrap around loom, covering pegs skipped in first round.

Each round will end with one yarn coming from the outer loom, and one yarn coming from the inner loom. Repeat process covering all pegs with 2nd loop (see photo). Then hook over the bottom loop over top loop.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

INSTRUCTIONS

Cast On 52 stitches in Stockinette with both yarns to create the vertical stripes.  Lay anchor yarn.

Rnds 1- 8:  Work in Stockinette with both yarns in vertical stripes.

Rnds 9-11:  Lay yarn 2 aside and work with yarn 1 in Stockinette. (3 rnds)

Rnds 12-14:  Lay yarn 1 aside and work with yarn 2 in Stockinette.  (3 rnds)

Double Vertical Stripes:  Rnds 15-19 (5 rnds) will be in Figure 8 stitch.  Lay yarn 2 aside and work full rnd with yarn 1, on every other 2 stitches.  Wrap front to back of same stitch working 2 stitches, skip 2 pegs, and work next 2 pegs. Wrap each stitch in direction like the number 8. Keep this process going until you have a full rnd and are back to beginning.  Lay yarn 1 aside and work the round covering the skipped stitches, front to back, in Figure 8 with yarn 2.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rnds 20-22:  Cut yarn 1 and tie off with yarn 2.  Work 3 rnds in Stockinette with yarn 2.

Rnds 23-25:  Place a new loop knot of yarn 1 on beginning peg and work in Stockinette for 3 rnds.

Next 12 rnds:  With both yarns attached and on beginning pegs, repeat the vertical stripes as in the first 8 rnds.

Rnd 38:  Lay yarn 2 aside and work one rnd with yarn 1 in Stockinette.  Cut yarn 1 with 2-3” tail.

Rnd 39-44:  Knot yarn 2 with yarn 1 tail.  Work in stockinette with yarn 2 for 6 rnds.

Hat should measure 9.5”-10” high and you are ready to bind off, and close up the hat crown.

Bind Off:  Cut yarn 2 with aprox 20” yarn tail.  Gently pull stitches snug on pegs.  Move the loops from inner loom to same stitch on outer loom, so that the inner loom is empty.  Hook over each stitch, so that you have just one loop on each peg on outer loom.

Place the yarn tail on large darning needle.  You will be transferring the loops onto the yarn for the gather bind off.

Moving from R to L, insert the needle thru the loop from underneath and allow it to slide onto the yarn.  Remove it from the loom.  Pick up next loop and allow it to slide onto the yarn and remove it from the loom.  Continue around the loom lifting each loop and transferring it to the yarn, until all loops are on the yarn.  The hat is now free of the loom and it can be lifted up and off the loom.

Finishing:  Leave the yarn on the darning needle.  Gently, gather the top edge of the hat by pulling the yarn and drawing the top of hat together.  Once the opening is small, you can take the yarn to inside of hat and use the darning needle to sew the hat closed.  Knot securely.  Leave the yarn tail attached to use to sew on the pompom.

Work a single crochet bind off of cast on stitches using the crochet hook.  Be sure to work towards the yarn tail, so that you end the bind off at the yarn tail. Once you have worked all the stitches on the anchor yarn, there will be only the one loop on the crochet hook. Pull the yarn tail thru the last loop to knot.  Gently remove the anchor yarn.

Weave in all yarn tails that may remain, or pull to inside of hat and trim.  This is best done with the crochet hook.

Pompom:  You will make a crochet chain of each color yarn that is aprox 40” long with the crochet hook. Start with a loop knot, pulled so that it is about the size of a pencil. Insert the crochet hook into the loop, grab the yarn and pull it thru the loop so that you have a new loop.  Grab the yarn again, and keep going in this manner to create the chain.  Once you have aprox 40” of crochet chain, knot the last loop.  Trim ends to about ½”.  Repeat the process with the other yarn.

 

Once you have both yarn chains complete, roll them together as if making a Christmas bow.  Tie in center and knot.  If you would rather, you can make a traditional pompom or tassels.  Just have fun with the adornment!

Sew securely to top of hat using the yarn tail and darning needle.  Cut end of yarn after sewing is complete and weave in yarn tail into the knit, or pull to inside of hat.

  • I love everything about this hat, the color, stripes, the top…so good! Great post!

  • Is there a stitchology for February?

  • Is there a stitcholgy for February?

  • Stitchology has been canceled. Our lovely designer has other wonderful opportunities that she is pursuing.

  • Stitchology has been canceled. Our lovely designer has other wonderful opportunities that she is pursuing.

  • Sorry to hear stitcholgy has been discontinued

  • Can this hat be made with #4 weight yarn?

  • Hi Jean,
    The hat could be done in #4 yarn but the result would be thinner and the change of color may show a bit between the stripes. Also, the hat will be a little smaller but will fit head circumference of about 20-21″. The sample hat fits looser or up to head circumference of 23″.

Aria Messy Bun Beanie

Let’s start the year off by going back to basics with a twist! This beanie incorporates the ewrap knit stitch, as well as the knit stitch and the purl stitch. Want to be more chic, skip the cinching of the top and create a messy bun beanie! 

LOOM:  White Hat Loom (72 pegs) from Premium Round Loom Set.

YARN:  Approx 130  yds of worsted weight merino wool. Red Heart Chic Sheep in Poolside was used in sample (3.5oz/100 grams | 186 yds/170m)

NOTIONS:  Knitting tool, tapestry needle.

GAUGE: 9 sts x 16 rows= 2 inches

SIZE:  Fits head up to 21” in circumference.

ABBREVIATIONS

Ek=ewrap knit

K=knit stitch

P=purl stitch

Rnd(s)=Round(s)

Approx=Approximately

 

INSTRUCTIONS

Cast on 72 sts, join to work in the rnd.

Rnd 1-10: *ek1, p1; rep from * to end.

Rnd 11: p to end of rnd.

Rnd 12-21: *ek1, p1; rep from * to end.

Rnd 22: Pick up cast on row and place the stitches back on the loom. K to end of rnd.

Rnd 23: *k3, p1; rep from * to end.

Rnd 24: k2, p1, *k3, p1; rep from * to last st, k1.

Rnd 26:  *p1, k3; rep from * to end.

Repeat Rnds 23-26 until item measures desired length (approx 7 inches from cast on edge).

To create a regular beanie (top closed): Move every loop from every odd numbered peg to its neighbor (1 to 2, 3 to 4, etc.). Once every other peg has 2 loops on it, bind off with basic bind off method.

To create a Messy Bun Beanie (top open): Remove all the stitches from the loom onto a piece of contrasting color yarn. Single crochet close the opening by grabbing three stitches each time all the way around. Follow this link to a video demonstrating this step.

Weave all ends in, block if necessary.

  • What is the gauge of the loom being used in this pattern

  • The sample used the white loom from the Premium set–some would consider it regular gauge or small gauge.

  • Were all knit stitches e-wrapped?

  • No, only the ones on the brim. The pattern has these as “ek”. I believe Rounds 1-21.

Double Knit Bear Beanie

Designed by Bethany A Dailey

Stay cozy this winter with a double knit hat that evokes a little woodland charm! Knit this hat’s bear in white and it looks like a polar bear, in brown and it takes on the feel of an evergreen forest creature.

LOOM: Rotating Double Knit Loom

YARN: approx. 275 yards super bulky yarn. Sample used approx. 200 yrds MC and 75 yrds CC of Knit Picks Brava Bulky (blue/white sample), 136 yrds, 100% acrylic, in white and denim, and Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Bulky (cream/brown sample) 137 yrds, 100% wool, in white and chocolate.

NOTIONS: loom tool, yarn needle, removable stitch marker, crochet hook, scissors, yarn bobbins (optional)

GAUGE: 6 sts x 11 rows = 2 inches in double knit stockinette

SIZE: junior/sm adult. (18″ circumference (but stretches to wider width) x 8.5” height

ABBREVIATIONS

Approx=approximately

MC=main color

CC=contrast color

k=knit stitch

dks=double knit stockinette

dkr=double knit ribbing

CO=cast on

BO=bind off

KO=knit off

WY=working yarn

st(s)=stitch(es)

rnd(s)=round(s)

PATTERN NOTES

One strand held throughout.

It might be helpful to use masking tape around the outside of the loom to temporarily number the pegs so that the colorwork chart can be more easily followed.

In the colorwork chart, there are color sections that are separated by more than one stitch during the course of a row. In these instances, it is recommended to use a separate yarn ball to switch colors. This helps the colorwork stand out with the most clarity.  Small little balls can be wound from the main skeins, or by using some sort of yarn bobbin for ease of use. There will be need for 2 extra little balls of each color during the working of the chart, plus both skeins of MC and 1 of CC.

The samples were cast on in a counterclockwise direction, but the colorwork chart’s stitches were still followed from right to left.  This resulted in a mirror image of the bear pattern.  If an exact replica of the chart is desired, simply cast on going in a clockwise direction and follow the chart from right to left.

For Instructions on how to create the Double Knit Ribbing and Stockinette Stitches on the Rotating Double Knit Loom, see the following tutorial:  http://blog.knittingboard.com/archives/8174

COLORWORK CHART
(Click on the chart to view it larger)

INSTRUCTIONS 

Using MC, CO to all 52 pegs to work in the round using the Double Knit Ribbing method (dkr). Use an anchor yarn after all pegs have been wrapped once.

Rounds 1-6:  MC, dkr all pegs.

Round 7:  MC, wrap using Double Knit Stockinette (dks) method across every other peg, beginning with the 1st front peg, during the first wrapping round. CO CC and dks on all remaining pegs during the second wrapping round. KO all pegs.

Round 8: CC, dks across every other peg, beginning with the 1st front peg, during the first wrapping round. Pick up MC and dks on all remaining pegs during the second wrapping round. KO all pegs.

Round 9: MC, dks on all pegs.

Rounds 10-24: Follow colorwork chart to create bear design. At each place where a new yarn color will be added (*see Pattern Notes), twist yarns so that the new color to be used is coming up through the “hole” of the last wrap of the current color.  Turn and wrap current color back to the beginning of that color’s smaller section.  Pick up the next color in line and repeat this wrapping process.  Continue in this method until the round is complete and all colors designated by the chart have been wrapped and KO.

Round 25: MC, dks on all pegs.

Rounds 26 & 27: repeat Rounds 7 & 8.

Rounds 28-38: repeat Rounds 1-6.

FINISHING

Wrap WY around loom 2 times and cut at this point.  Work a modified Drawstring BO, or Flat Drawstring CO following the steps below:

-Place yarn needle on yarn tail and sew through all inner loom’s stitches in the same direction as knitting.

-Place a removable stitch marker at this point of the yarn tail (can be as simple as a piece of tied on scrap yarn).

-Sew through all the front loom’s stitches.

-Remove hat from loom.

-Cinch in securely all the inner loom’s stitches by pulling the yarn tail at the place before the stitch marker.

-While holding all the inner loom’s stitches secure, cinch in all the outer loom’s stitches. Remove the stitch marker at the last moment and tighten all stitches at once.

-Pull yarn needle to the inside of the hat, give one more careful pull to tighten all stitches, and knot securely in place.

If desired, an eye for the bear can be placed at the stitch indicated on the chart either by using a duplicate stitch, or by pulling a length of yarn from the inside of the hat to the outside, making a knot, and then pulling back through to the inside.

If desired, create pompom using both colors of yarn, and attach at the top of the hat.

Weave in all ends and trim close to work.

Below is a Playlist to view this design being worked in its entirety. Come and loom along with me! 🙂

  • love the hat Bethany for the optional pom pom what is the size of it? Don’t want one too big or one to small thanks

  • Hi Kathy! 🙂

    It is really up to your own preference what size pom pom you create. I just spotted a Bear Beanie knit by someone who used a pom pom that was a little bit smaller than the one I used and it also looked really cute! I will tell you that I used the box of a specialty chocolate bar (Ghirardelli, I think) to make my pom pom wraps, so anything goes, I think, haha! 😉

  • Is it possible to do this beanie using the 28 ” loom?

  • Hi Heather 🙂

    Yes, you could do this beanie on the 28″ loom, but because the Rotating DK Loom is the only loom that is capable of working in double knit in the round, you would need to adjust the pattern to work every row as a flat panel and then seam up the side after the hat was removed from the loom. Also, slight adjustments may need to be made to account for differences in gauge between the two looms.

Notions:  Knit hook, crochet hook, loom double hook (optional), tapestry needle, and stitch markers (4 colored rubber bands work well)

Size:  Hat fits average adult and is 8.5” deep.

Gauge:  4 rounds=1″

 

Abbreviations

St (sts)=stitch (stitches)   aprox=approximately  Rnd(s)=round(s)

Hat Design:

Hat is worked in Rib Stitch. Total of 32 rounds unless deeper hat is desired. Each rib is 2 sts.  Cables consist of 8 stitches or 4 sets of Ribs.  There is a total of 4 Cable sections in hat.

Break down…

  1. Work Twist #1 on all cables and work round.
  2. Rib stitch (3 rounds)
  3. Work Twist #2 on all cables and work round.
  4. Rib Stitch (3 rounds)

Place colored rubber band on each set of 8 sts cables before beginning.  There are 4 of these sections. Sequence:  4st, 8 st cable, 6st, 8 st cable, 4 st, 8 st cable, 6 st, 8 st cable.  Place one rubber band around pegs for each 8 st cable, for markers.

#1 Twist: Each cable design consists of 4 ribs or 8 sts.  Be sure to pick up the correct stitches to keep the ribs consistent.  Twist only the sts on the outer loom.  Place markers or rubber band on each set of 8 sts.

Working pegs 1-4. Lift first 2 sts, 1 and 2 (one rib) and hold on double hook. With another hook, move sts 3 and 4 onto pegs 1 and peg 2.   Now, place st 1 and 2 from double hook onto peg 3 and peg 4.

 

Working pegs 5-8. Do another twist (2 ribs).  Then repeat the process on all sets of 8 sts marked with rubber bands.

 

 

 

 

 

 

#2 Twist:  Start with 2nd rib.  You will be twisting the stitches in the opposite direction.

Working pegs 1-4. Lift the 2 sts on pegs 3 and peg 4 and hold on double hook. Move sts 1 and 2 onto pegs 3 and peg 4.  Now, place sts from double hook onto pegs 1 and 2.

 

 

 

 

 

Working pegs 5-8.  Lift sts 7 and 8 with double hook.  Move sts 5 and 6 to peg 7 and peg 8.  Now place sts from double hook onto pegs 5 and peg 6.

 

 

 

 

 

Repeat this process on all sets of 8 sts marked with rubber bands.

Finished Twist #2

 

Hints:  Work in loose tension especially the row before each twist row.

Work hook over on inner loom first as this loosens tension.  Then, work the hook over on the outer loom.

 

 

 

 

 

INSTRUCTIONS

Cast On all 52 pegs to work in the round in Rib stitch.  Lay anchor yarn and allow ends to dangle below the looms.

Rnds 1-6:  Work in Rib stitch for the brim of hat.

Rnd 7:  Work Twist #1 cable on all 4 cable sections (8 sts each).  Weave the round in rib stitch over all pegs including the cable twists and hook over.

Rnd 8-9-10:  Rib stitch

Rnd 11:  Twist #2 cable on all 4 cable sections.  Work the rnd in rib stitch.

Rnd 12-13-14:  Rib stitch

Rnd 15:  Twist #1 cable on all 4 cable sections.  Work rnd in rib stitch.

Rnd 16-17-18:  Rib stitch

Rnd 19:  Twist #2 cable on all 4 cable sections.  Work rnd in rib stitch.

Rnd 20-21-22:  Rib stitch

Rnd 23:  Twist #1 cable on all 4 cable sections.  Work rnd in rib stitch.

Rnd 24-25-26:  Rib Stitch

Rnd 27:  Twist #2 cable on all 4 cable sections.  Work rnd in rib stitch.

Rnd 28-29-30-31-32:  Rib stitch

Bind Off using Rib Bind Off method: Maintain a yarn tail of aprox 12-14”.  Keep the 2 rib sts together.  Place st 1 on st 2 as if to do decrease.  This needs to be the 2 sts of one rib.  Do this all around the loom on both looms.  You will have every other peg with 2 loops.  Lift bottom over top so that there is just one loop on every other peg. Now, bring the loops from inner loom to outer loom so that there are again 2 loops on every other peg on outer loom.  Use tapestry needle and yarn tail to work around the loom and pick up the loops on the pegs, so that hat is free of the loom, and all loops are secure on the yarn.  Lift hat off loom.  Draw up the top of hat.  Go around the top of hat a 2nd time to secure a snug closure.  Knot the yarn, and weave in ends.

Bind off at Anchor yarn:  With the crochet hook, pick up both loops of one rib at yarn tail.  Pull one thru the other.  Pick up next loop of next rib, and pull one closest to hook thru the other.  Do this loosely around entire brim of hat.  Once complete, knot last loop with yarn tail and weave in ends.  Gently pull out the anchor yarn.

Finish hat with a happy big pompom.  Use some different yarns of shades of blue or peacock blue and maybe some different weights.  Wrap about 40 times around cardboard.  Tie the pompom, cut and trim.  Tie to top of your hat for a fun look.

Alternate Rib Hat

Loom: ‘Rotating’ Double Knit Loom, set up for double knitting.

Yarn:  Knit Picks Preciosa Tonal, 100% Merino Wool, worsted weight, 1skein.  Color ‘Canary’ in sample.

Stitches: Rib, Alternate Rib

Notions:  Knit hook, Crochet hook, one stitch marker (optional)

 Size:  Average Adult

Pattern notes:  Hat brim is knit in the rib stitch. The rest of the hat is knit in the rib and alternating rib stitch. Work by alternating these 2 stitches, round 1 and round 2 until hat length complete.

 

INSTRUCTIONS

Place the stitch marker on beginning peg, if desired, or use arrow. Cast On in stockinette stitch.  Lay anchor yarn around stitches between the looms.

Rounds 1-8:  Work rib stitch until end of round.

Round 9: Work alternate rib, until end of round.

Round 10:  Work rib stitch until end of round.

Repeat rounds 9 and 10 until you have a total length of approximately

8-8.5” from brim edge.  Complete the knitting with a row of rib stitch.

See photos below for weaving patterns for the Rib and Alternate Rib Stitch. The blue yarn show the ribbing, and yellow yarn shows the alternate rib.

 

             RIB STITCH

Beginning of round one

End of round one

End of round two

              ALTERNATE RIB

Beginning of the round one

End of round one

Once the knit is desired length, you are ready to bind off.  Move loops from inner loom to outer loom so that each peg on outer loom has 2 loops, and the inner loom is empty, hook over, bottom loop over top.  Now, one loop remains on each peg on outer loom.

Cut the working yarn coming from the project, leaving about 16-20 inches of yarn to use for the gathering process.

Thread the yarn tail through the eye of a tapestry needle. Pass the needle up and under the first stitch on the loom. Remove the stitch from the peg and leave it on the yarn tail. Go to the next peg and remove the stitch from the peg with the needle. This stitch will also rest on the yarn tail. Continue working around the loom until all the stitches have been removed and are secured on the yarn tail.

Gently pull on the yarn tail, cinching the top of the item closed. Pass the needle through the center of the gathered stitches and turn the hat inside out. Do a few securing stitches. Knot your yarn and weave in the tail.

Bind off the cast on stitches at anchor yarn with crochet hook for a completed hat.

Polemonium Hat

Designed by Renita Harvey

Love the Jacob’s Ladder technique in crochet but don’t know how to crochet?  Try the new method of chaining loops developed by Renita Harvey that achieves the same design feature on a stockinette background by knitting this hat! 

Amaze your friends and family with this fun hat that incorporates both the braided chain loops and color changes.  Changing the color after each round of chain loops gives the “ladder” a more visible appearance.  Or use a self-striping yarn with long color changes to avoid changing colors manually.  This hat is also a great pattern for school and team colors as well as seasonal color combinations. 

The Polemonium Hat is easier than it appears making it a great pattern for those wanting to up their loom knitting game.

Knit on the All-n-One Loom, the Polemonium Hat has a decreased crown bringing all the “ladders” or braids together at the top achieving a nice clean finish.

  • Very, very pretty Renita!

  • This is a fantastic design, Renita! Love it! ?

  • Can this pattern be made on the Rotating Board using 1 ring or even better both rings.
    Thanks

  • This is a very pretty and educational pattern. I tempted to go outside my basic stitches comfort zone.
    I’m going to start small, making a baby hat.
    Thank you for making this patter.

  • Thank you, Bethany!

  • Gail,
    This pattern is designed to be decreased at the top which is why it is written for the All-n-One loom. While it could be adapted to be made on the DKL, it couldn’t be decreased for the crown, and another way to finish off the braids would need to be devised. It really couldn’t be made with both rings on the DKL.

Faire Isle Beanie

Finally, a warm, stylish beanie that will be equally stunning on 5th Avenue or at the high school football game! Fair Isle is a knitting technique that uses multiple strands of different colored yarn to create intricate knit patterns. This hat will quickly become a staple accessory in your wardrobe!

LOOM: ‘Premium’ Round Loom Set (Large, 80 peg loom)

YARN: Worsted Weight (#4)

Red Hearts Super Saver (100% Acrylic) used in sample

Color A: approximately 60 g/110 yds (Soft Navy used in sample)

Color B: approximately 20 g/37 yds (Charcoal used in sample)

SIZE: Adult Unisex

COMPLEXITY: Late beginner to early intermediate

ABBREVIATIONS

st(s): Stitch(es)

rnd: Round

ek: E-wrap knit stitch

rep: Repeat

INSTRUCTIONS

Because this pattern is worked in the round, the pattern may be slightly staggered by one row between the first and last stitches in the round. This is normal and should be expected.

Note: A chart is located at the bottom of the pattern for your convenience. If using the chart, starting from the bottom, repeat the chart 16 times until you reach the end of each row. Then move up to the next row. Refer to the pattern for instructions between rows.

Cast on 80 sts in color A, prepare to work in the round

 Rnd 1-21: ek80 in color A

The brim is created by bringing the cast on row stitches (the bottom row of the work on the loom) back onto the top of the pegs. You should now have two rows of yarn on your pegs (row 21 on the bottom of the pegs and the cast on row on the top of the pegs). Next, simply work row 21 over the cast on row. This will create the double-thick brim.

Rnd 22: *ek1 in color A, ek1 in color B, ek 3 in color A; rep from * to end of rnd

 Rnd 23: *ek1 in color B, ek1 in color A, ek1 in color B, ek2 in color A; rep from * to end of rnd

 Rnd 24-25: *ek3 in color A, ek2 in color B; rep from * to end of rnd

 Rnd 26: rep rnd 23

 Rnd 27: rep rnd 22

 Rnd 28: *ek4 in color A, ek1 in color B, rep from * to end of rnd

 Rnd 29: *ek3 in color A, ek1 in color B, ek1 in color A, rep from * to end of rnd

 Rnd 30: rep rnd 28

 Rnd 31: rep rnd 29

 Rnd 32-33: ek80 in color A

 Rnd 34-36: *ek3 in color B, ek2 in color A; rep from * to end of rnd

 Rnd 37-38: rep rnd 32

 Rnd 39-40: ek80 in color B

 Rnd 41-42: rep rnd 32

 Rnd 43-44: rep rnd 39

 Rnd 45-47: *ek3 in color A, ek2 in color B; rep from * to end of rnd

 Rnd 48-50: rep rnd 39

 Rnd 51-55: rep rnd 32

Bind off with gather removal method. Weave in ends.

Finish by attaching a pompom in color B to the top of the hat.

NEW ‘Rotating’ Double Knit Loom

 

Introducing the new ‘ROTATING’ Double Knit Loom!  This loom features the new ‘patent pending’ rotating base.   You no longer have to change positions as you knit, the loom rotates as you work!

Loom sits comfortably on your lap, or on a table. It’s compact and lightweight …so easy to use.

Knit in the round, or knit flat panels. Use some of the pegs, or all 52 of them, depending on width of knit desired.

 

 

The loom comes in parts for easy assembly: (6) legs, (1) inner loom, (1) outer loom, (1) rotating base, instruction booklet and knit hook.

It’s super fast to set up with snap-in-place parts.  Set it up with inner and outer loom, and 6 legs for double knitting. Or set it up with outer loom only, using 3 legs, for single knitting.

It’s so easy! Made of high quality durable plastic.  The booklet will show you how to quickly and easily configure the loom for your project.

 

This loom is great for Hats, Scarves, Cowls and Shawls…. whatever, and however, you choose to create; this loom can make creating your project FUN and EASY!  Recommend yarn #4 or #5 for double knitting, and #2, #3, or #4, for single knitting.

The Double Knit Loom includes very detailed instructions with lots of how-to photos, introducing the double knit ‘in the round’ process. Get started with these easy fun projects.   More patterns/projects coming soon!  Click on photo for pattern.

  • AWESOME!!!!! Where and when they be in retail stores

  • Hi Caroline,
    That just depends on the retail chain….how many of their stores that they schedule for the product and the timing of the purchase. I would just check with your local stores in September and maybe they can answer this for you.

  • I love it i’m from Portugal. When is ready to sale?

  • Hi Anabela,
    We can ship now when your order is received.
    Thanks, Pat

  • I have the new round and sock looms. Just I ordered the rotating loom and the double hooks and I can’t wait to get them.

  • I ordered last night before the coupon came out. That will teach me to jump the gun! LOL

  • I’m so anxious! I love all the looms, I have and used all of them to date. I can hardly wait.

  • What’s the widest selection n the hats it can make?
    Thanks

  • would love to buy one of these but where can I find them.

  • This looks interesting. Are there any video tutorials available?

  • When and where can I buy it?

  • can a video be made showing how this loom works. I have not done double knit and am not quite getting it if I need this loom

  • Are you able to knit a double knit scarf with this

  • Yes you can knit a double knit scarf up to approximately 16″ wide.

  • We are working on a series of videos, expecting to be up in September. We will announce as date gets closer.

  • Not yet, planning in September.

  • It is awesome for adult double knit hats, and single knit child to youth size depending on stitch. For flat panels in both single and double knit approximately 16″ wide.

  • Thank you!!

  • Thank you for your support of KB!!

  • I just purchased one the other day I can’t wait to get this loon and the new picks. I knit hats and scarves for homeless vets and this will help me get more done quicker Thanks for making this new loom and picks

  • I’m not seeing a price on this one. I purchased the premium round looms and the his & her sock looms which I saw prices but for some reason, not on this one. Looks very interesting!!

  • $29.99. Today Monday is the last day of the coupon code: “Doubleknit”

  • The loom sounds wonderful, but I am concerned with the fact that there are only 6 or was it 8 patterns to use with this loom. Will I be able to use any of my hat and scarf patterns on it? Particularly concerned with doing youth hats. I have a 10 year old and a 35 year old that I want to make hats for.

  • Hi Deborah,
    You can use all your scarf patterns up to 52 stitches on the loom in single knit or double.
    The hat knitting is same as working on a round loom. The youth hats are just a matter of what is the head measurement, and how deep do you want to make it. Also, I would experiment with different yarns. You may want to make them in the single knit.

  • What is the advantage of a double Loom vs. just one Loom? What can you make with the double?

  • Hi Ann, You use a double set of pegs to work in double knit. Before, all double knit was done in a flat panel and then sewn together. This loom allows you to create a double knit hat in circular and therefore, no seam. If you are not familiar with double knit, you may enjoy the videos on the website to see what can be done and some advantages of working in double knit as well as single knit.

  • Where I can find those looms thank you

  • Hi Olga, All available looms can be purchased on website http://www.knittingboard.com. Some hobby and craft stores will be carrying some looms, but you need to check with your local stores for availability.

  • Using the afghan loom and a figure eight stitch, how much yarn is needed to make an lapghan? What are the measurements of an average size lapghan?

  • When you do the tutorials will you please make one showing the various ways to work color changes. I have no problem with single knit but, I am having issues with the double knit. I have the new double knit round loom (which I love ??). I have watched the available videos, they aren’t quite enough. Showing how to carry yarn, start new rounds, attaching new yarn, would greatly help! I am not newbie, and as such, I know that these videos would be of immense value to new loom knitters! Also, would some one make a video showing how to create your own cable patterns. Cables are easy to learn with practice, but a mystery on how to combine different types. Hope that makes sense. Thanks!

  • We will keep this in mind for the next tutorials. Thank you.

  • If the fabric goes down the legs to the base, how do you do any length, without piling it up there? Thanks!

  • Hi Linda, If you are doing a hat, you can just roll it up until the hat is done. If its a flat panel, just allow the length to come out between the legs and there will be no limit as to how long the piece becomes.

Introducing…’Premium’ Round Loom Set

This has been a big request for years. Finally it’s here!!

The ‘Premium’ Round Loom Set is the ideal set for small gauge knitting, with pegs spaced at 3/8” apart.  This is great spacing for using all your favorite worsted weight yarns. The looms are made of high grade plastic with a smooth finish, and stay put pegs.

Knit hats in 3 sizes!  Works super great for shawls, scarves, home decor, baby items, and much more!

Loom sizes…   small 64 pegs, medium 72 pegs and large 80 pegs. Available now at KB Looms. Here’s a few of our current hat patterns that work on the new looms. Click on photo for pattern.

  • Yay! Thank you.

  • BEAUTIFUL! I cannot wait to get my poor arthritic fingers on these! Thank you AKB!

  • I like Authentic Knitting Board looms. I have the oval loom set, but am used to using round ones. This looks tempting. I don’t see an extra peg where I can anchor my yarn, it would sure help me. Thanks.

  • What size hat does the small loom make infant or toddler

  • Are there any patterns other then hats for this loom?
    Also I am trying to secure these looms and it seems it won’t take my coupon codes
    Does it take more then one code?

  • Hi, Only one discount code can be entered for an order. We are working on many more patterns/projects. Just need to watch the blog each week.

  • I’ve been waiting so patiently!! Love all the looms I find it easy to use a round looms but have and use the oval hat loom as well.

  • Hi Donna, Thanks for your patience–we hope you enjoy.

  • i am the proud owner of all KB Looms!!! I love all of them. I was sure hoping these looms were next!!! Thank you KB!! I cannot wait to get my hands on these!!!!

  • Hi there, I am in South Africa and looms are normally very expensive to import with an exchange rate of almost 15 to 1. How much are these and what would the postage be to South Africa. 🙂

  • YAHHHHHHHH!!!!!!! I have often wondered why there was not a round kb loom . I am so happy. Lets do the happy dance.

  • Love the white hat with the flower!!! It’s so nice to see a pattern for a flower finally on loom not too many of those out there. Excited about all the new looms coming out!!! It’s nice see loom knitting getting some notice.

  • will future kits include the 4th loom in the smaller size? or be available separately?, for making preemie baby hats, mittens, and slippers.
    Thank you Pat
