Basic Hats

Basic Hats smaller

The new knitting looms are also a great size to create baby hats! My son created these hats, he came up with the design himself too! The itty bitty one on the right was created on the new knitting loom in the kit, the 32 peg one. This little hat is a good preemie size hat. The hat on the left was created on the Sock Loom 2 and it is big enough to fit a 1-2 year old toddler. Both of these were created using the ewrap stitch.

The patterns are below, enjoy!

A little bit about Renita~

Renita Harvey is a single mother of 2 young children from Naylor, Arkansas. She graduated from Harding University with a degree in Mathematics in 1994. Due to her health, Renita has been unable to work and has been on disability for several years. She has found therapy in the form of yarn. Making and designing loom knit items gives Renita a sense of purpose and helps her feel productive at the end of the day.

Although Renita has always enjoyed all types of crafts including sewing, crochet, beadwork, and cross stitch, loom knitting is her passion. She is self taught expanding her loom knitting knowlege as more information has become available. Her first looms were a spool loom and a very small round loom that were part of a kid’s craft set given to her by her parents when she was about 8 years old. Her first full size round loom was the Knit-A-Round which was also given to her by her parents when she was 13 years old. Her first projects were hats and scarves that she gave as gifts. After putting loom knitting aside for several years, she returned to the craft when her sister bought a Knifty Knitter set.

Over the years, Renita has expanded her knowlege of techniques with loom knit books and the internet. She has only started designing patterns this year. Although she has various looms in different gauges, she loves using her Knifty Knitter long looms and has now added the smaller gauge All-n-One among her most used looms. Renita enjoys knitting a variety of items from afghans to coasters. She gets her inspiration from all places but mostly from the questions “how would you make this?” and “can this item be loom knitted?”

You can find more about Renita’s projects at her blog String Theory Fiber Works

  • Great job, Renita. Love, love, love it.

  • Great pattern! I hope to see more by Renita. Thank you.

  • Followed the instructions for this hat with two modifications – I substituted a 2×2 rib brim because I don’t like the fold & stitch type, and I added an extra row of paving stones. Since I don’t have an All-in-One loom yet, I did this on a loom that is suggested on Renita’s site as an alternative. The hat is quite pretty but it is VERY small. We are talking toddler-sized! Is it supposed to be a child’s hat?

  • I’ve done the ht to the pattern it’s very small is this a child’s hat and how many stitches and rows would I need to do for an adult hat
    It’s still lovely x :)

Arco Iris Slouchy Hat

Arco Iris Hat 1000I am very excited about my last slouchy hat. I wanted to incorporate the last stitch I presented to you a week ago, the Crown Stitch, but I wanted it to be in a colorful way. I was envisioning something where the garter stitch rows were all in one color and then the “crown” rows in a different color. It took me awhile to find a yarn that had the right “length” of color sequence as well as a playful disposition in the colors. After browsing for awhile at different yarns, I found what I needed right in my stash, Knit Picks Chroma in Lollipop.

To create this hat, you will need to review the Crown Stitch videos. It uses the stitch through the hat, so be sure to take a look at it and practice it a bit before you embark on this hat.

Pattern Information

Materials

Knitting Loom: All-n-one-Loom, set up to 70 stitches, then increased to 80 stitches.

Yarn: 150-180 yards of worsted weight yarn. Knit Picks Chroma Worsted in Lollypop color was used in sample.

Notions: Knitting tool, tapestry needle.

Gauge: 8.5sts =2 inches in stockinette, steamed blocked.

Size: Sample fits a head that measures up to 21 inches.

Abbreviations

CO=Cast on

GBO=Gather bind off

K=knit

P=purl

sts=stitches

yo=yarn over (ewrap)

k2tog=knit two stitches together

p2tog=purl two stitches together

Pattern note: The stitch pattern used in this pattern is the Crown Stitch, converted to loom knitting by Isela Phelps. Please view the video to familiarize yourself with the stitch pattern prior to working this hat. Video to the Crown Stitch can be found at this link:

  • I love the look of this hat! I can’t wait to try it out! Thanks Isela! :)

  • Hi Isela! Beautiful, and Beautiful work!

  • Hi Isela- I love your books! Tell me- can you still purchase the DA Looms?? I can’t find them anywhere and I am having trouble finding a loom to do a small gage on. Any thoughts? I have the all-in-one loom but that doesn’t go that small..

  • Love the hat!! Is there a video for this hat? The colors are wonderful!!!!

  • I’ve got a question. The video for the crown stitch has you putting the elongated stitches on peg 1, however the pattern says to put them on peg 2. Are we to follow the video or the pattern? It gets a little confusing here.

    Thanks!

  • I started this last night..using KnitPicks chroma worsted in Roller Skate. Increasing was really hard– at least putting it back on the loom. It was frustrating!
    After a few false attempts on the crown stud h, I pulled up the video ..all good!

  • I just started this last night…I’m enjoying the challenge!
    I think the hardest part is doing the increase—it was really difficult to put the stitches back on the adjusted loom. I think I ended up missing 2, and I hope that didn’t mess up my hat!
    (Just started the second round of crowns)

Pony Tail Hat Design

Happy New Year my dear loom knitters! It is so great to have a new year ahead of us, I like to think of it as 365 days of blank cards that we get to fill up.Hey, there is an idea, how about we grab some index cards and each day, we write something about loom knitting-tips, tricks or a stitch :). At the end of the year, you will have 365 tips or tricks on looming :).

Over the holidays, I had some time to sit down and knit. I showed my group over on Facebook one of my creations and they all wanted the pattern for the loom. I sat down and did some bit of math and came up with the following pattern for all of you. I hope you enjoy it. I have already made 5 Pony Tail Hats.

Running brings freedom to my life as such, I am out on the road during all times of the year, including during the freezing Utah winters.  The design of this hat allows me to wear my hair in a pony without having my pony tail under my hat, instead, it flows freely, the way my soul feels when I run.

DIRECTIONS

CO 80sts, join to work in the rnd.

Rnd 1: *k2, p2; rep from *

Rep Rnd 1 until Ribbed Cuff measures approx 1.5 inches from CO edge.

Next rnd: k

Rep last rnd until piece measures 6 inches from CO edge.

Next rnd: BO 5 sts, k to the end.

(Next section from * to * is worked in rows, follow instructions exactly)

*Next row: k from last peg back to peg 6.

Next row: k from peg 6 to last peg.*

Next rnd: CO 5 sts, k to the end.

You have two options: 1-do a Simple Hat. 2-Crown Decreases. Follow whichever one you prefer or the one that is best suited for your knitting loom.

Option 1: Simple Hat Directions  (no crown decreases) Continue working in the rnd for 2 more inches in knit stitch. Then do a GBO. Weave ends in. Block if necessary.

Option 2: Crown Decreases Instructions

Next rnd: *k6, k2tog; rep from * to the end of rnd.  (70 sts rem)

Next rnd: k

Next rnd: *k5, k2tog; rep from * to the end of rnd.  (60 sts rem)

Next rnd: k

Next rnd: *k4, k2tog; rep from * to the end of rnd.  (50 sts rem)

Next rnd: k

Next rnd: *k3, k2tog; rep from * to the end of rnd.  (40 sts rem)

Next rnd: k

Next rnd: *k2, k2tog; rep from * to the end of rnd.  (30 sts rem)

Next rnd: *k1, k2tog; rep from * to the end of rnd.  (20 sts rem)

Next rnd: *k2tog; rep from * to the end of rnd.  (10 sts rem)

GBO

Using a crochet hook (size 5.5mm), work one round of single crochet around the pony tail opening.

Weave ends in. Block if necessary.

ADAPTING THE PATTERN TO A BIGGER GAUGE LOOM

If you have a 48 peg large gauge (Purple Knifty Knitter) loom that gives you a gauge of 2.5 or 2 sts per inch. You will also need bulky weight yarn, approx 150 yards.

Cast on 48 stitches instead of 80 and follow the instructions as given with the exception of the bind off for the pony tail opening.  Instead of binding off (BO) 5 sts, only bind off 4, and on the next round cast on 4.  In addition, do NOT follow instructions from * to * (the section of rows). Follow everything as given, except for the changes indicated. You won’t be able to do the Crown Decreases as this loom is not adjustable, so follow the simple hat without the Crown Decreases.

  • I like this, I am wearing a pony tail right now. I saw one made up on a crochet site for a little girl with the top two corners open for piggy tails too. It will look great with or without a brim.

  • my girls love it :) super !!!!

  • Jeannette, you read my mind! Next up, one with two piggy tails :)

  • I my daughter-in-law will love this! I need to make her one. Thanks for posting this. :)

  • Isela, thank you for sharing your time and talent so generously! I know my daughter will love wearing this hat when she runs! Can’t wait to finish it and give it to her!

  • You are welcome :). I am glad to be of help and that my tinkering around helps others.

  • Love the ponytail hat! I’m always wearing my hair in ponytails, so this will be a great project for me to start.

  • Love the hat I made one for my daughter she always wears a ponytail. Her birthday is in Feb. will give it to her then,I know she’ll lvoe it. A friend of mine is learning to loom knit and wants to make one too she also wears a ponytail.

  • Isela Hi I love the ponytail Idea but I was wondering if you have a video on how to make this hat .yes I am a new learner still and a visual learner patterns only confuse me I know how to loom knit hat but this one is a little confusing to how you make the hole for the ponytail please help if you could post a video and show what loom to work with Thank You inadavance .

  • Can this ponytail hat be converted to a child/toddler size?

  • I agree with the lady who wanted to know if there is a video for this hat because right now I am trying to make this hat for a friend. I mg am lost on how to BO and CO to make the ponytail hole. Help me please. I am working on the Ribbed Cuff at the moment.

  • For the knit stitch – are you using the e-wrap stitch? the knit stitch? or the flat knit stitch?

  • I use the knit stitch-the one where you lay the yarn on top of the loop, hook the loop the. Remove the original loop and place new one on peg.

Storybrook Cloche

I have to admit that I am a lover of all accessories, if I have a choice of an item to knit, it will most likely fall in the range of scarves, mitts, hats, socks, or something “chic” to enhace the wardrobe. The Storybrook cloche was inspired by one of my latest show-series obsessions, Once Upon a Time, the actresses are always wearing gorgeous hats! Choose any episode and they have a new hat, I want to have a wardrobe full of hats, one for each day of the year, or at least a full month’s worth!

  • Not sure where I should leave my question. I am stuck. I have started socks using the knitting board adjustable loom. I used 50 pegs. When it came time for the heel I can’t get a number divisible by three. Half is 50, so don’t know whether to do 8/9/8 or 9/7/9. If you can help thanks.

  • oops! regarding my previous comment. half is 25. used 50 pegs. sorry

  • Barbara, did you see my answer in the blog post above?

  • I love your videos you do a great job with your illustrations but I wanted to know if you can break this stitch down? I see this stitch pattern is similar to the Fern Lace stitch but the sl1 k2tog psso is confusing me, I end up with 3 stitches on one peg for that stitch. Is that right? Please help been trying to do a zig zag edge for a while. Thanks!!

  • Oh yeah and where is row 6? Oops I put the wrong email domain above sorry should be yahoo. I hope it still reaches you. Thanks

  • I love your videos and illustrations but can you break down the stitch pattern like you did on the Fern Lace stitch on YouTube? I see this is similar but sl1 k2tog psso has me a little confused because I end up with 3 stitches on one peg. Is this right? Please help. Thanks in advance. PS. What happened to row 6?

  • Hi Zeridah

    Just wanted to know if you every managed to complete this hat as I am also battling on the sl1-k2tog-psso and have no idea how to proceed.

I bring you a new pattern for your AllnOne knitting loom, the whimsical pixie hat! I loved knitting this precious little hat and I was so excited when I finished it to find a little someone to wear it for me so I could take pictures.

    Sue
    p.s. keep knittin’!

  • do i have to use all in one to make this? if not what loom and the cast on?

  • just wondered if i had to use a all in one loom can u let me know soon. i would love to make one for my niece.

  • You don’t, however, we haven’t tested the pattern on any other knitting loom. If you get gauge on another loom, and you have the number of pegs needed, you should be able to do it.

  • You don’t, however, we haven’t tested the pattern on any other knitting loom. If you get gauge on another loom, and you have the number of pegs needed, you should be able to do it. Cast ons, whatever cast on you feel most comfortable using. I rarely call for a specific cast on, unless is absolutely necessary for the pattern.

Last Minute Slouchy

knittingBoard-189crop
It was Tuesday morning and it was my turn to carpool the kids to school. I was running around like crazy that morning and I hadn’t even had a chance to change out of my pajamas. 6 kids were in the car waiting for me and the clock was ticking. I didn’t had a chance to go upstairs and brush my hair and make myself look half-decent, but as I was going out the door, I saw my slouchy hat and put it on. In a second, I went from looking disheveled to presentable and that my friend’s is how the name of the slouchy hat came to be. It is my last minute emergency tool! I love it! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Isela Phelps

Loom: All-n-One Loom

Stitches: k, p, e-wrap, k2tog, yo.

Yarn: 130 yards of worsted weight
yarn. Araucania Aysen was used in sample (Less than 1 skein).

Notions: Knitting tool, tapestry
needle, and removable stitch marker.

Gauge: 8.5 sts= 2 inches in double ribbing

Size: Fits up to a head circumference of about 21 inches.

Level: Intermediate

Notes: Working clockwise around the knititng loom. The ribbing section is done with the knit Allnone-2stitch, may substitute with the flat stitch or the u-stitch. The rest of the hat is done with the e-wrap stitch. Important: Note that on Round 11, we move the first stitch one place to the left (clockwise) to keep the pattern slanted. We will use the stitch marker to keep track of our new Peg 1 position. We keep moving it after each pattern repeat so each time you do a row 11, you move the stitch marker over to mark the new Peg 1 position.

Knitting Loom Settings: set the knitting loom to 80 pegs (35 on each of the long rails and the two sliders).

Abbreviations:
k=knit stitch
p=purl stitch
k2tog=knit two stitches together
yo= yarn over (simply e-wrap the peg that needs the yarn over)

Directions

Cast on 80 stitches, join to work in the round. Place stitch marker on 1st peg.
