Autumn Candy Corn Hat (double knit)

Designed by Amanda Pratt

This pattern works in both single knit and double knit on the ‘Rotating’ Double Knit Loom. Single knit, using outer loom only for the brim, then switching to double knit for the body of the hat.  What a great idea Amanda!

Note: Amanda’s Honeycomb Stitch uses the rib stitch, wrapping in a figure 8 method,  which is different from rib stitch taught by KB. Work with manner you feel most comfortable. Rib stitch video of both methods are included. The stitch pattern used in the pattern is also known as ‘Honeycomb’.

  1. Can this hat be made on any of your other kb looms I dont own the loom and topper I dont want to have to buy the loom and topper attachment just to make this hat do you have any suggestions to what loom I might be able to use .

  2. This item is worked in the round in double knit. Unfortunately, you need a loom that is in the round and able to double knit to create it in the round. You can do it flat but then you will need to seam it–we don’t have instructions for it to be worked flat.
