Couture Cloche

COUTURE HAT SIDE

The luxurious luster from the silk-blend yarn provides this cloche a stunning high quality finish.  The yarn blend also gives this cloche a wonderful, soft, drape. The stitch pattern although looks complicated is very simple to memorize.

Knitting loom: Adjustable Hat Loom, set up at small gauge with 80 pegs.  

Yarn: Approx 140 yds of DK weight silk blend yarn. Sample used Diadem by Knit Picks in jacquard: 50% alpaca, 50% mulberry silk, 219 yards/100 grams. Color: Azurite solid.

Notions: knitting tool, tapestry needle.

Gauge: 20 sts x 24 rows= 4 inches in stockinette (unblocked)

Size: Fits up to a 21” circumference.

K=knit.

P=Purl.

Rnd=Round.

St(s)=Stitch(es).

YO=Yarn over (ewrap empty peg; on the following row, undo the ewrap and lay the yarn bar in front of the peg).

K2tog=knit two stitches together. Move loop from the peg on the right over to the peg on the left, knit both loops together as one.

  • Will you have this on you tube.

  • No

  • I thought the adjustable hat loom was plastic

  • The adjustable hat loom is made out of plastic. The video was done on another loom for ease in using when taking the video.

  • Oh, my! This is such a fantastic hat, Isela! I love it! :D

  • Thank you :) I love it!!! I have some awesome ideas going in my head for that band and cables in the band, but I need some time to play with that.

  • I really love all the patterns, However, I wish you’d have them as PDFs. Much easier to save and download that way. Would that be a possibility in the future? Thanks so much for all the effort you put into this website!

  • They are put in PDF form a year after they are published on the blog. The PDFS can be found on our regular website, under free patterns.

  • I really like this pattern. I would like to download this pattern. Will that be available anytime soon?

  • thanks so much for sharing – ST. PATRICKS DAY is my birthday so yes I will be making one of thiese……………….

  • On round 25-28 did you mean MC?

  • Download? You mean as a PDF. They are put in PDF format after being on the blog for six months. In the meantime, you can copy it and paste it onto a word document and save it that way.

  • Yes. MC.

  • Isela what a clever pattern. I’m so glad to see you still posting patterns. I started loom knitting 2 years ago, I was quite late to the party, but I learned sooooo much from your videos.You’re a fantastic teacher.

  • Where do I learn how to read these patterns. I am totally confused

  • Well, learning to read patterns is a bit like learning to read. Each pattern comes with a list of abbreviations. I guess the first step is to learn the abbreviations and what they mean. Next, start reading the pattern, if needed, replace the abbreviation with the complete term. In pattern writing, it is best to be concise, however, if you prefer, you can use the entire term, if it makes it easier to understand. Once you get to the pattern itself. A number next to a letter or term typically means that you work that many stitches (the number). Example: k2=knit two stitches (knit two pegs). Another example: Sl 3=slip 3 stitches (skip 3 stitches with yarn behind the pegs). Does this help a little?

  • I do not know any other way to reach you. May I please have some info on 2 projects On the AIO headband with crochet flower, I tried to use a #4 weight 100% wool. I was into the pattern and looked at it on the right side, the stitches were large. Your picture showed a tiny row of stitches. What did I do wrong?
    next? on the cats paw headband what yarn did you use? what weight? color?

    Thank you for your help

    bettywaldeck@tampabay.rr.com

  • The one with the crochet flower: I just worked the knit stitch. Nothing different or fancy. My tension is the same throughout.

    Cats Paw Headband: it looks like Knit Picks Shine in worsted weight. Don’t have the color way written anywhere. It was yarn left over from another project.

Men’s Basic Hat and Scarf (double knit)

 Men's Double Knit Hat &Scarf Combo

Easy and quick to knit with easy fit that every man loves.  Our unique stitchery is in the matching scarf.  Both are double knit, warm and soft-any man or gal will love the holiday look of them.  One of my very favorite yarns to work with-you will love it too.  Let the cold winds blow!

Loom:  28” Knitting Board + peg extenders set up for double knit with 1 cm spacers.

Yarn:  Knit Picks City Tweed Aran/heavy worsted.  Our holiday color is #24529 Blue Blood.  Need 4 balls for the scarf and 2 balls for the hat.  This yarn is 55% Merino Wool, 25% Superfine Alpaca, 20% Donegal Tweed.  164 yds per ball.  Hand wash and dry flat.

Stitches:  Rib, Stockinette, CrissCross

Finished Sizes:  Hat fits head approximately 22-23” and 10” deep.  Scarf measures approximately 6” X 50”.

Notions Needed:  Knit hook, crochet hook, darning needle

Gauge:  Stockinette stitch- 6 stitches X 9 rows=2 inches

 

Instructions:

Hat

Cast On 60 stitches in Rib stitch.  Lay anchor yarn of any color as it will be removed.

Work (5) rows in Rib stitch.

Change to Stockinette and work until the hat measures 5.5-6” from anchor yarn.

Now, you want to decrease across the stitches so the top of the hat will fit better.

Decrease Row:  We will do (4) decrease rows.  When you do each of these, just move the indicated loops from the pegs and place them onto the adjacent peg towards the center of the loom.  This is same as a K2tog.

First decrease row-Starting at L side of loom, lift loops from pegs #5, 15, 25, 35, 45, 55.  Place each one on adjacent peg going towards center of loom.  Once moved, you have (6) empty pegs.  Do this to both sides of the loom.  Now, carefully lift loops and move over filing in the empty pegs.  Work towards center of loom.   Be sure to move both loops when you come to a peg with (2) loops.  The result will be (3) less pegs at each end of loom for the hat.  You will now have (54) stitches.

Work (3) stockinette rows.

Second decrease row-This time, move loops on pegs # 5, 14, 23, 32, 41, 50.

Work (3) stockinette rows.

Third decrease row-This time, move loops on pegs #5, 13, 21, 29, 37, 45.

Work (3) stockinette rows.

Forth decrease row-Move loops on pegs # 5, 12, 19, 26, 33, 40.

Work (3) stockinette rows.

You now have (36) pegs on loom.  Time to bind off of loom.

Bind Off:  Use anchor yarn for easy gather.  After last row, lay a new anchor yarn of same yarn.

Lift loops on one side of loom and place them on the pegs of other loom so that one rail has no loops and opposite rail has 2 loops.  Lift bottom loop over top so that there is only one loop on pegs, and the anchor yarn is inside.  Bind these stitches off using 2-loop method.

Sew side seam with invisible stitch. Gather top, using new anchor yarn and tie securely.  Pull yarn to inside of hat and take a few stitches inside to secure the opening.  You can use the yarn tail of the anchor yarn for this.  Tuck in any remaining yarn tails.

If a pompom is desired for top of hat, you can create and add when complete.

Scarf

Note: Be sure to work each row hooking over from left to center and then right to center.  Vary the center point in each row.  This will ensure that your scarf edges remain even and straight.

Cast On (20) pegs in rib stitch.

Work (6) rows in Rib.

Change to Criss Cross Stitch starting with row 1 to 3 and 2 to 5. (stitch pattern #1)

Continue working the Criss Cross stitch until scarf measures approximately 50”.

Change to Rib stitch.

Work (6) rows.

Bind Off with 2-loop bind off at loom and anchor yarn in rib stitch.  Keep the working yarn loose so that the ends do not pull too tightly.  Tuck in any yarn tails for a great looking holiday scarf.

Notes:  video and how-tos for the Criss Cross stitch can be viewed at www.knittingboard.com.

  • This is a very handsome hat set. I have always wanted to try a double knit hat with a decreased crown. It will be my next hat set project for my husband. Thank you.

  • I have been trying to make this hat!! Now on my 3rd attempt and I get to the decrease and I’m ending up with a hole and I have to start over. I’ve even stared marking the board with numbers. How are you working to the middle?? Sorry very confused right now.

    Thanks for your help!!

    Susan

  • Hello this question may sound dumb but I’m confused how do you double knit for a hat?? I looked for videos on youtube to get an idea but had no luck. Is there any way you can make a video demonstrating this please thank you.

  • Very nice hat and scarf set. I really like the color and I’m totally loving the stitch texture of the scarf. Thanks for sharing it!

  • Can this same set of instructions be used for a single knit?

Yarn:  Approximately 50 yards each of worsted weight in red, green and white.  Approximately one yard each of black and orange.

Notions: knitting tool, row counter, crochet hook, tapestry needle and  (optional) pompom maker

Gauge: 4 stitches and  6 rows per inch in stitch pattern.

Abbreviations:

CO: cast on

EW: E wrap

P: purl stitch

St(s): stitches

Rnd(s): round

Rep: repeat

BO: Bind off

Pattern Notes:

This pattern is worked in the round.

In this pattern, after round 46, you will begin decreasing stitches to form the taper of the hat.  With each decrease, you will move the stitches on the four corners in one peg.  After moving the stitches, you will then move both sliders in one peg, in line with the pegs that have two stitches.

This pattern can will fit a toddler/young child. It can be made larger by increasing the number of pegs per side. However, if more pegs are used, be sure to use an odd number on each side and begin casting on using the middle peg. For example, the pattern as written calls for using 23 pegs per side with cast-on beginning at peg 12. If you increase to say, 25 pegs, then you would cast on starting at peg 13. Also, for every two pegs you increase, you will have one more taper to do at the top.

 

INSTRUCTIONS

Set knitting loom to work 46 pegs in the round, with sliders at both ends.  Place a stitch marker on peg 12 – you will begin the CO on this peg.  This is important for the tapering to work out.

Beginning at peg 12, EW CO all 46 pegs

Rnd 1-4 : *EW using red yarn

Rnd 5-8:  Without cutting red yarn, EW using green yarn*

Rnds 9-16: Rep from * to*

Rnd 17-20: EW using red yarn.  Cut red yarn leaving about a 6″ tail

Forming the brim: bring the CO loops up through the center of loom. Lining up the loops, place one loop on each peg.  You will now have two loops on each peg.  Lift bottom loop on each peg over the top loop.

Rnd 21-34:  EW using white yarn.  Cut white yarn leaving about a 6″ tail

For the remaining Rounds, you will be knitting alternate rows of red and green.   Carry yarn to the inside of loom when not using.  Do not cut.

Rnd 35-42: Using red yarn, make four sets of garter stitch (alternating rows of EW and P).

Rnd 43-46:  EW using green yarn.  Do not cut yarn.

Rnd 47:  *Move the St(s) from each corner peg in one peg.  (For example, in this round you will move peg 1 to peg 2; peg 23 to peg 22; peg 29 to peg 30 and peg 41 to peg 40).   Move the sliders in one peg to line up with pegs that have two St(s).  EW using red yarn, turning pegs with two loops as one.

Rnd 48-50: EW using red yarn.

Rnd 51:  Move the St(s) from each corner peg in one peg and line up sliders.  EW using green yarn,  turning  pegs with two loops as one.

Rnd 52-54: EW using green yarn.*

Rnd 55-86: Rep from * to *.

Rnd 87-90: Rep Rnd(s) 47-50

Cut both yarns leaving a 12″ tail

Using both yarns held together as one, BO using drawstring bind off.  Remove hat from loom  and drop the yarn tails inside the opening at top of hat.  Turn hat inside out and close top by pulling on the yarn tails.  Cut yarn tails to about 5″.  Weave in all ends. Turn hat right side out.

Make a pom pom and attach to top of hat.

(Optional) Using a length of white yarn, make three (or more) “snowflakes” on front of snowmans “hat” (the garter ridges).

Eyes:  Make a chain of 25 stitches using black yarn and crochet hook, leaving 6″ tail at beginning and end of chain.  Coil up the chain and stitch together using the yarn tails then stitch eyes onto hat.

Nose:  Using either bulky weight or two strands held together as one of orange worsted weight, form a short i-cord using three pegs of the loom.  Bind off.  Slightly stretch the i-cord so that the bind off edge is wider than the other end and attach to hat.

  • May I use another loom for this pattern , as I do not have the hat loom?

  • Hi Renita!
    Love this hat :) Would love to make one for my son and my boyfriend! I know that your instructions are for the Adjustable Hat Loom, but is it possible to make this on the All-In-One Loom? I’m relatively new at all of this so I’m just not sure.

    Thanks!
    Karen

  • Hi Karen,
    This is Isela, I designed the hat pattern. Yes, you can do it on the All-n-One loom. You can follow the instructions exactly. Set your knitting loom to 80 pegs and start working with the same pattern.

  • You can use the All-n-One loom.

  • Thank you Isela!

  • Hello I am making this. When you say to do rounds 11 nd 12 ,32 more times do you mean like as a pair or just 32 more rows. I numbered a sheet 1-32 and alternated rows. And my hat isn’t very big.

  • As a pair

  • Hi I am not familiar with the term pair can you please explain I am not sure how to read patterns either when it say k1 does it mean knit 1 and when it says purl 6 do I purl 6 times on that peg I am confused please help

  • I have just purchased the KB Adjustable Hat Loom. How do you get 80 stitches on this loom….The most I can get is 50 stitches….do I have to buy additional pieces?

    Thanks.

  • The loom’s booklet has 80 pegs is for a 20″ head, but this pattern is saying 84 pegs and fits a 23″ head?

  • Kim, the pattern shown used 80 pegs. Knitted fabric stretches, thus the reason why this hat was able to fit the 23″ head of the model. Also, the type of yarn and stitch will affect how much the knitting stretches. If you use cables, the knitted fabric won’t stretch. If you use cotton, the knitted fabric won’t stretch at all. However, this pattern was worked in knit stitches and purl stitches, and with a wool yarn, all of these characteristics combined provided with a hat that can stretch.

  • Helen, you have to put the pegs in the open holes. Your loom should have come with additional pegs and you just set it up and put the pegs in the open holes.

  • Hi Isela, I have an all-n-one loom & want to make this for my grandson who is 7. I think it was you who made a scale or a way to adjust the patterns to fit the individual. If I am correct & it was you can you tell me where I saw that so maybe I can figure out how to adjust. He likes this type cap. I have made my daughter 2 of your slouchy hats & she just loves them. Sorry I am so long winded, I can’t say what I need to without using a lot of words. I have to tell you I have learned so much from you and am very appreciative of the time you spend teaching us all. I love your patterns and videos. You are very talented. Thanks for your time.

Hashtag Hat

Have some fun and hashtag you!  Great project for beginners using 2 stitch variations. It is sized for youth with an option for an adult.

hashtaghatLoom:  All-n-One Loom, set up for double knit

Yarn:  Patons Shetland Chunky, 25% Wool and 75% Acrylic, 148 yds per skein

Colors used:  #78209 Soft Teal (1 skein) and #78042 Charcoal (1/2 skein)

Stitches:  Stockinette and Rib

Notions Needed:  Knit Hook, crochet hook, measure tape, scissors, darning needle

Finished Size:  Youth=20” and Adult=23-24” head circumference, aprox 9” high from brim to pompom

Gauge:  5 stitches and 10 rows= (2) inches in stockinette

Special Note:  Using the full width of this loom makes a youth/small size hat.  To knit a larger hat as in our sample, we have added a small back panel to increase the width.  Using a larger loom ie the 28” loom will result in larger gauge and larger stitches which will change the shape slightly of the ‘hashtag’.

Instructions:hashtag.angle

Hat Front with ‘hashtag’:

Cast On all pegs or 48 stitches in Rib Stitch using Teal Yarn.  Lay anchor yarn of contrast color yarn.

Work (2) rows in Rib stitch.

Tie on color 2 Charcoal at 2nd peg.  Do not cut the Teal yarn.

Work (1) row in Rib stitch with Charcoal yarn.  Cut and knot.

Work (1) additional row in Rib with Teal yarn.

Change to stockinette and work (2) rows.

Hints:  Mark the center of the loom with a stitch marker or pin.  Next row will be row 1 of the bottom of ‘hashtag’.  Whenever you are working the Charcoal for just the 2 stitches of each upright, weave the 2 consecutive pegs front to back and move over to 2nd upright and weave the 2 consecutive pegs front to back.  Then, weave the Teal yarn in Stockinette weave skipping the upright pegs.  When, you are working the long rows of charcoal, weave the stitches in stockinette, and then weave the Teal yarn in Stockinette weave skipping the charcoal stitches.  Notice in your graph that the uprights will shift over by (1) stitch to give the design an angled look.

Go to center of loom, count back (4) stitches and tie on the Charcoal yarn.  Work the (4) upright stitches.  Note that there will be 3 pegs skipped in center of them.  Lay the charcoal yarn down where you end.  It doesn’t matter which direction you do the front to back for the 2 uprights.  Weave the row with the Teal yarn and hook over.  The ‘hashtag’ design consists of a total of (15) rows.  Once complete, you can cut and knot the Charcoal yarn.  Hat will be completed in Teal Yarn.

Work (7) additional rows in Stockinette.

Change to Rib stitch.  Work total of (14) Rib rows to top of hat.

Work Decrease row on row #6 and row #10.

Decrease Row explained:  decreasing some stitches at top part of the hat will add some shape to the head and keep the top of the hat from being too ‘bunchy’ or bulky.  So, we will do a decrease to 2 stitches on each side of the design.  That will take out a total of 4 stitches on each decrease row and make the top of hat fit much better.  Before doing the weaving and hook- over, go to stitch #8 from left side.  Lift the stitch and place it on peg #9.  Go to stitch #12 from left side.  Lift the stitch and place it on peg #13.  Now you have 2 empty pegs.  Go to right side of loom and count over to peg #8 and place this stitch on adjacent peg to left.  Count over to peg #12 and place this stitch on adjacent peg to left.  Do this to both sides of the board directly across from each other.  You now have (4) empty pegs on each board.  Carefully, lift the stitches and move towards the center of loom.  You want the empties to be at ends of loom.   Now, weave and hook over the row carefully lifting all loops on each peg so that only the one loop remains on the pegs.  Continue working in Rib stitch.

Repeat this decrease process on row #10.  Complete the hat with Rib stitch.

Removing the hat from loom:  Since we are at the top of the hat, we want to create another anchor yarn to gather the top of hat.  Do not bind off.  Instead, cut and knot the working yarn.  Cut another piece of the working yarn about 24” long and thread onto the darning needle.  Pick up the stitches working from one board to the other and allow the stitches to come off the loom onto the yarn.

Small – youth size finishing:  Sew the back seam using invisible stitch with matching yarn, Teal.  Bind off the brim edge stitches.  Gather the top of hat by pulling the yarn securely and tying a secure knot.  Hat is ready for a fun pompom.

Large adult.  In order to add more width to back of hat, we knit a matching piece that will be seamed into the side edges of the hat front.

Cast On 10 stitches in Rib stitch. (More if you want a larger than large hat)  Our 10 sts will add 4” to the size of the hat.  Work this small piece just as you did the hat front only no design is needed and no decreases are needed.  Do work the matching stripe on row 3 to match the front of hat.

Once complete and free of the loom, seam to the hat front using invisible stitch on both sides connecting the 2 pieces into one round hat.  If you use the invisible stitch for the seaming, the seams will not show.  Just be sure to match the Charcoal stripe exactly.  Now, gather each section with the anchor yarns at top of hat.  Tie the yarn securely.

Now you can bind off in one continuous yarn at brim.  Either size, you are ready for the pompom.  We have used both yarns for the pompom in the sample, but you can choose to make it all one color, if desired.  Wrap the yarns around a box or anything that will give you approximately 5” long strands.  Wrap 20-30 wraps; tie in center very securely.   Cut the loops and shake the pompom loose.  Use the yarn tie of the pompom to secure to top of hat.  To finish the hat, use the crochet hook to tuck in any yarn tails that remain from the seaming and knotting.  Shape the pompom as short or as shaggy as desired.  In our sample, we trimmed it up a bit, but left it fairly long.

For a complete look, make a matching Hashtag Scarf. Very cute!

As soon as we saw this cute design, we knew that many loom knitters would be interested in trying it out. Carrie Johnson has been kind enough to allow us to share her pattern in blog. We hope you enjoy it. A little bit about Carrie:  Carrie is a single mom of four children, ranging in ages of 5-20 yrs old! She lives on a small goat farm out in California. She has been loom knitting for about 3 years and just began to learn to read patterns. She recently started writing down all of her designs, and she has four published patterns so far and more to come! Contact Carrie.

Knitting loom: KB adjustable hat loom
Yarn: approx 30-40 yds of worsted weight yarn.
Notions: knitting tool, tapestry needle, stitch markers,
Other: Stick on jewels to decorate or other decor of choice.

Abbreviations

K: Knit (e-wrap)
P=Purl

Pattern note:  I used two strands of yarn, since the yarn I used was thin. If using a #3 weight yarn, you might want
to double your strands. A #4 yarn you might use one strand, two strands can be use for a thicker crown. One
strand of #5 can be used as well, even though I haven’t made the crown in bulky yet, it should still work!

INSTRUCTIONS

Set up: Set your loom in the extra small configuration- using 2 connectors and 2 round parts. Place pegs in every
hole.

Using your stitch markers divide pegs into 8 sections with 7 pegs in each section.
Ex: pegs 1-7 is one section, pegs 8-14 is another section and so on…

Cast on 56 stitches, join to work in the round.
Rnds 1, 3, 5, 7: k to the end.
Rnds: 2, 4, 6, 8: p to the end.

Points for the Crown
~Each section is worked separately, in rows.

Starting with the first section pegs 1-7:

*Row 1: k to end of section

Row 2: p to end of section*

Decrease as follows: Move loop from peg 1 to peg 2 and loop from peg 7 to peg 6.

Repeat from * to *.  (Pegs that have two loops on them, treat both loops as one loop.)

Next: Decrease as follows: move loop from peg 2 to peg 3 and loop from peg 6 to peg 5.

Repeat from * to *.  (Pegs that have two loops on them, treat both loops as one loop.)

Next: Decrease as follows: move loop from peg 3 to peg 4 and loop from peg 5 to peg 4.

Next: Knit peg 4. Purl peg 4.

Cut yarn leaving a 6 inch tail:  knit peg and pull yarn tail through.
One point done.

To start next point, make a slip knot and add yarn to peg 8 (you’ll now be working on pegs 8-14) and repeat
Points for the Crown section. Repeat with each section. 8 points completed at the end of project.
Weave in yarn ends.
Decorate
Enjoy!

  • Carrie,
    Very cute! I don’t have a young lady to work one for, but if I did, she would be the proud owner of your very clever crown. Can’t wait to see more of your work very ice indeed!!

    Sue K.

  • Cute as can be, Carrie! My little girlie said I need to get her one so she can wear it on her head and pretend to be Princess Peach :)

  • Thank you so much for sharing this adorable crown. I will be making a one for my granddaughter, plus several for friends granddaughters. They are all Princesses. :)

  • Thanks for letting me know. We have corrected it. Row 13 should say Row 12, row 14, row 13, etc.

  • Can this be done on the aio loom?

  • Yes, you can do it all the AIO. You need to use worsted weight yarn and about 64 or 68 pegs. Follow the pattern exactly. You will need about 120 yds of yarn.

  • I really love the looks of this hat! And the color of the yarn (along with the name of it as well), goes right along with the slouch-type Rasta hats :)

  • Hi Isela, I’ve been a fan for more than 8 years. Can I do this on the regular knifty knitter looms?

  • Yes. I don’t know which loom you will use but if the peg number is not divisible by 4, your ribbing will be different. If you don’t have a multiple of 4 in pegs, do a 1×1 rib (k1,p1) for the brim. The rest should be exactly the same as written.

  • Do you have a video tutorial for this?

  • Do you do row 15 the same as row 12 just purl instead?

  • Rose, yep. Rnd 15: p to the end of rnd.

  • There is an error in this pattern. There are no rows between rows 12 and 13 to create the garter stitches that separate the sets of drop stitches. Instead, the pattern immediately goes into another set of drop stitches with no garter stitches to separate them.

  • Karen,
    The hat has 2 rounds of elongated stitches at the beginning, no garter stitch separates them. The reason why there is no garter stitch between those two rounds of elongated stitches is to not have a ridge right by the forehead area. I started the dropped stitches after that area. So this is what the hat should be: ribbed hem, 1 round of knit stitches to set up for the hat body. 2 rounds of elongated stitches. After these two rounds of elongated stitches, then we start with 2 garter stitch ridges, then 1 round of elongated stitches, we repeat starting at the 2 garter stitch ridges. Does this make sense?

  • I feel so dumb. I looked at the picture more closely and realized mine had looked like it was supposed to before I ripped it out. I missed that because the yarn is so thick and I thought I was seeing one round of elongated stitches when it was actually two. Thanks so much for your fast response. I hope I can save it.

  • If not, I think it will still look fabulous :). It will be an original!

  • Can you explain round 13 please? “As round ten” does that mean round 13 is 10a & 10b again? Thanks!

  • Yes, Round 10-A and 10-B.

  • Thanks Isela, this is a great pattern (as are all of your patterns)!

  • I have the pattern above that I printed out, but there is no line 12. It goes from 11 to 13. What is 12. I am fairly new at the loom knitting. I don’t know what to do for line 12. Thank you. Love the pattern and I hope mine turns out.

  • Thanks for the pattern! I love the look of those elongated stitches. I’m going to try them in a matching set of wristlets and/or scarf.
    To Lisa, I just tried this hat on the yellow 41 peg knifty knitter loom using an extra purl at the end. It worked, but was excessively large. Unless you have a large amount of hair to fit a hat over, I’d try the green 36 peg loom. I’ll be giving this hat away to someone with beautiful dreads at the next hippie show I go to and try again with the smaller green loom for myself :)

  • I purchased the new hat loom and I am totally baffled by the sizes they indicate on the chart. None of the sizes match the outcome of the piece. I have tried several different types of yarn, including the one they suggested but the hats are so much bigger than the chart indicated. Im very disappointed, is anyone else having this issue?

  • What type of stitch are you using? We used the Knit stitch not the ewrap in our calculations.

Chevron Hat

Chevron Hat Magic

Back in the fall, I started seeing all these cute scarves and skirts with chevron designs and I was in love with every single one of them, since then, I have been wanting to design a hat and cowl with the chevron design. Finally, on a Sunday afternoon, I had a chance to sit down with some graph paper and color the chevron design. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.  The design uses only color changes, no decreases or increases for the design.

Pattern Information

Knitting loom: All-n-One knitting loom

Yarn: Approx 120 yards of worsted weight yarn. Cascade 220 was used in sample in White and Mint (less then 1 skein each color).

Notions: knitting tool, row counter (optional)

Gauge: 11 sts x 17 rows= 2″.
Please note how tight my gauge was with this yarn, if you do not obtain this gauge with your swatch, your hat may come out bigger/smaller than mine. Please check your gauge before starting this project.

AbbreviationsChevron 4 small

k=knit stitch

p=purl stitch

sts=stitches

Rnd(s)=round(s)

MC=Main color (Mint)

CC=Contrasting color (white)

Pattern notes

Reading a chart: Read a chart from the bottom up and from right to left. Each cell represents a stitch.

Tips: Carry the unused color loosely at the back of the work. Do not pull too tight on these floats as this will make the work “pucker”. Nice and loose and it should provide with a nice stitch pattern. It is imperative to always reach for the colors in the same manner. For example, I always reached for the CC through the bottom of the MC, and I always reached for the MC over the CC. Steam blocking helps set the stitch pattern and take away some of the puckering.

Using MC, cast on 102 sts, join to work in the round.

  • Isela, I love this hat, and I can wait to make one for my boy.

    By the way, I would like to ask something that is not exactly related to this hat. I bought 2 of your books; one for making socks, and I can make anything because of the loom that you used. I haven’t been able to find that loom, but I have the All-in-one.

    Do you think some day you will be able to tell us how to make all of those beautiful socks using the All-in-one loom?

    Thanks a lot!

  • Soon enough, I think we will have access to a loom that we can use all those patterns :).

  • Isela, now, I know what you meant… I just bought the Sock Loom EFG by AKB… I can’t wit to receive it, and start making my socks!

    Thanks!

  • Isela, I bought also the new Hat Loom 4 in 1… but i have a question. Your pattern says that I need 102 stitches using the AIO, which spacing between pegs is 3/8″, and the new Hat Loom could be use too with that spacing… But it has just 84 pegs in order to make the biggest size! (23″ circumference).

    What should I do?
    How does the new Hat Loom work?
    Is it going to be too small?

  • Ruth,
    The chevron hat is a special case, as well as any other that has stranded colorwork. The colorwork pulls the knitting in and this requires us to knit the item a little larger than regularly. Also, the yarn that I used for this pattern is a little thinner than worsted weight yarn.

  • :). I am glad that everything worked out :)

  • I just looked at the pattern again, the stitch pattern is a multiple of 6. You can try the pattern as is, the stitch repeat works perfectly with the 84 pegs; it may end up a little smaller than the slouchy version I have on the blog. It may end up a little snug.

  • How do you get your cast on so tight? Mine is always loose. Thanks!

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3yUxTMi2Fv0 Try this tip! It is what I use to tighten up my cast ons.

Downtowner Hat & Scarf Set

Downtowner Hat and Scarf

Trending colors with sparkly sequins will have you looking great this season and keep you warm as well.  Just a little bit floppy shape to our big hat but the most basic and simple knitting techniques are needed.  Nice wide scarf will add the sparkle all around your face, but scrunch up thin for classic look. Looks great with basic black!  Hat is knit in (2) pieces and sewn together. You will love this pretty set.

Knitting Loom:  All-n-One Loom set up for double knit with 1cm spacing for hat, 2cm spacing for scarf.

Stitches:  Stockinette and Rib

Yarn:  Premier Deborah Norville Jeweltones #2 yarn, 57% acrylic, 40% wool, 3% sequins was used.  Hand wash and lay flat to dry.  99 yds per skein, 5 skeins for both scarf and hat.  Color used-GEODE

Notions:  knit hook, darning needle, crochet hook size 4 or 5mm

Gauge:  Hat–6 sts and 10 rows =2 inches in stockinette.  Scarf–not important

Size:  Hat fits average adult size.  Scarf is 10 X 68 inches

INSTRUCTIONS

SCARF

Set up loom with spacers at 2cm spacing in double knit.

Cast on 24 stitches in stockinette.  Lay anchor yarn over first row of weaving.

Work in stockinette stitch until scarf is desired length.  For our sample, this was aprox 132 rows.  When you need to add a new skein of yarn, tie on between the rows of pegs, very securely with 2” tails.  Lay the yarn tails between the boards.

Bind off of loom and at anchor yarn with 2 loop crochet method for stretchy edges.

Note:  when doing the hook-over for each row, be sure to work from left side of knit to center and then from right side to center.  Always vary the center point per row.  This will maintain even edges.

HAT

Hat is knit from crown to brim in 2 pieces and sewn with 2 seams.   After cast on, lay anchor yarn of thick strong yarn in similar color as it will stay in hat for closing in the crown.

Cast on 30 stitches in stockinette st.  Lay anchor yarn.  Work in stockinettes st for 30 rows.  Change to Rib stitch and work an additional 20 rows.  Bind off of loom.  (Knit 2 of this piece)

Finishing

Use invisible stitch to sew the side seams of (2) pieces together so that the anchor yarns are both at same end and you have a circular piece.  Tie anchor yarns together and gently pull thru the cast on sts so that both knitted pieces are on the same anchor yarn.  Pull anchor yarn so that the top of hat is closed.  Tie securely, trim yarn and pull yarn tails into inside of hat.  Trim excess anchor yarn tails.

The opposite end with rib stitch is your brim.  You will roll the brim under so that the hat is desired depth.  Sew the edge of brim in place with similar color yarn.  (no sequins).  The rib stitch will allow the brim to flare out and create a classy effect.  Tuck in any yarn tails remaining.  Your sparkly hat and scarf are ready to wear and wrap you in classy comfort.

Here is a picture of my crochet hats, my own pattern too, and I based myself on the crochet version for the loom knitted version.

Owl Hats crochet

 

On designing these, the most difficult part came to the eyes. It is very hard to knit a flat circle on a knitting loom as you are not able to increase/decrease easily. I went through 4 different ideas and finally, I did what I first thought would work but didn’t want to go that route, but it was the one that worked the best. The eyes are created flat with short-rows. I tried the increasing and decreasing in a circle and I found it to be completely a hassle and was taking the joy of the project away so I scrapped that idea. I did them flat, decreasing so that I could make a circle, the result didn’t look right at all. The short-rows was the best method that I could find for the circular flat discs needed for the eyes. 

If you know how to crochet, you can wip out a pair of circles in about 5 minutes flat, so you could go that route. Another option is to use felt for the eyes.

  • Awesome, thank you so much! I love Freebie Fridays!

  • Can you explain how to do #15;

    Pick up cast on edge and place those stitches back on the loom, each peg should have 2 loops on it. Treat both loops as one loop. K to the end of the round.

    I cannot find any instructions on how to do this. Thank you very much

  • How would I make this for an adult? I have the aio loom. Thanks I think my friend who loves owls will love this.

  • Make it long, cast on more stitches

  • From the front of hat, hook the crochet hook under the stitch.  See photo 1
  • Fold 1 strand of yarn in half.
  • Place loop at the end of the strand from where it is folded on the crochet hook and pull it through the stitch on the hat so that both ends of the yarn is still on  the front side of the hat.  See photo 2
  • Without taking the loop off the hook, pull the 2 strands at the other end through the loop and pull tight.  See photos 3 and 4

Foam rollers how to

Using 2 fringe (4 strands of yarn total), roll the yarn onto the sponge roller using 9 rollers for the bottom round.

Tassels
(Make 2)
Cut 12 lengths of yarn (choose the colors you like the most), about 40 inches long each piece. Hold them all together at mid length (about 20 inches)
Using a crochet hook, pass the crochet hook through one of the stitches at the sides of the hat. Make a slip knot with the tassel so the knot ends up as close to the brim of the hat as possible. You should have 24 strands of yarn.
Divide the yarn strands into three groups of 8. Make a braid with the three groups of 8. Once the braid reaches desired length finish the braid with a slip knot. Clip the remainder of the yarn strands to an even length, leaving about 1 inch of length at the end of the knot.
Repeat for the tassel.

  • Love the pattern. Thank you for sharing!

  • Love this hat!! What knit stitch is used? Is it the traditional knit stitch, U stitch or flat?

    My preference is the U stitch but I want to be sure I am doing the right thing. :)

    Thank you!

  • Can you tell me where I can get a pattern for a women’s pullover sweater for the 28″ Knitting Board? I’m just looking for a plain sweater for my first try. I haven’t been able to find a pattern and I don’t know enough about knitting with needles to try to convert a conventional pattern. What would you say is the equivalent size knitting needle and the average gauge for the 28″ loom using a plain knit stitch or garter stitch? That might help me in picking a pattern to convert for the loom.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

  • I love this hat…I only know how to crochet…I would like to know if you happen to know where I can get this pattern in crochet? If not would you happen to have any ideas how I can accomplish this hat by crocheting. thank you

Side Cable Hat

Horseshoe 1000

Gearing up for fall around my house means a new batch of hats gets underway. I like practical items that would look pleasing no matter the wardrobe of the day. Neutral tones lend themselves splendidly to the upcoming season. The horseshoe cable hat depicts one wide cable that is comprised of of two cables, one left leaning cable and one rightleaning cable. Placing both cables next to each other creates a wider cable. The design adds a special touch with a buttonband around the forehead.

A great introductory pattern to cables. One side cable introduces you to left and right leaning cables to create a gorgeous wide cable. The hat is mainly worked in stockinette with a  side cable that will allow you to practice the cabling technique.

Knitting Loom: Sample was worked on All-n-One knitting loom (86 pegs for adult female. ). 

Yarn: Approx 150 yds of worsted weight Extra Fine Merino Wool. Sample was knit using Berroco Pure Merino in color 8570 (1.5 skeins).

Other: ¾ inch decorative button

Notions: knitting tool, tapestry needle, cable needle, 2 stitch/peg markers, regular sewing needle and thread (to match yarn).

Gauge: 22 sts x 32 rows=4 inch square

Size: Sample fits a head of up to 19.5 inches around. Hat depth is 7 ¾ inches.

Pattern notes:

If gauge is not the same, hat may come out too large or too small. Please check gauge before starting project. If row gauge is not accurate, simply work more rounds or less rounds to achieve the desired hat depth. If stitch gauge is not accurate, simply work less or more stitches at the beginning of each round (in the area where it says k64).

Abbreviations

K=knit stitch

P=purl stitch

C4F=Slip next 2 sts to cable needle and hold at front of the work, k 2sts from the loom and move them to the empty pegs (opened up by placing the stitches on the cable needle), then k2 from cable needle and place these stitches on the empty pegs.

C4B =Slip next 2 sts to cable needle and hold at back of the work, k 2sts from the loom and move them to the empty pegs (opened up by placing the stitches on the cable needle), then k2 from cable needle and place these stitches on the empty pegs.

The hat will be worked in the round from this point forward.

With the aid of the tapestry needle, adjust the cable stitches so they look nice and tight. Pull any yarn slack to the wrong side of the hat and with needle and thread, sew the yarn slack in place.

Block lightly. Weave in all ends.

Sew the button band flap to the hat brim. Add a button to the button band flap as decoration.

  • Beautiful hat, I can’t wait to make it. Thank you for sharing this pattern.

  • I guess I’m confused on how you work a flat panel and then work in the round. Don’t you have to work around the loom to get the 86 pegs to start with?

    I just bought my All-n-One Loom, and I’m trying to figure out how these things work!

    Thank you!

  • Ashleigh, I’m no expert by any means. But I believe you would work from peg 1 to peg 86, then in the next row you start by working back the way you just came. Starting with peg 85 and working back toward peg 1. Row 1: 1-86. Row 2: 85, 84, 83…, 82-1. Row 3: 2, 3, 4… 5-86. I hope this helps! And i hope its correct! :/ :) If not please feel free to correct me. Happy looming!

  • Yep! Exactly as described :).
