INSTRUCTIONS

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

Round 1: Rib Stitch

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

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

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

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

Rounds 1-6: Rib stitch

Rounds 7-18: Stockinette for fullness around head.

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

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

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