LOOM: ‘Adjustable’ Multi-Knit Loom , 40 pegs in large gauge. Use (2) rounded rails and (2) 12 peg sliders.
YARN: Super Bulky, 100% merino wool 90 yards per skein 150 grams per skein. Sample knit using Malabrigo Rasta in Sunset, 1 skein.
NOTIONS: Knitting tool, tapestry needle, removable stitch marker.
STITCHES: Knit stitch, purl stitch, e-wrap
- k=knit stitch
- p=purl stitch
- ew=ewrap peg counterclockwise
- YO=ewrap (ewrap peg counterclockwise)
- K2tog: knit two stitches together. Move the loop from right to the peg on the left, knit the peg with the two loops on it, treating both loops as one loop.
Set up loom for large gauge by removing ‘every other’ peg. Using (2) rounded parts and (2) 12 peg rails. Cast on 40 sts, join to work in the round.
Round 1-7: *k2, p2; rep from * to end of rnd.
Round 8-9: k to the end rnd.
Round 10 is broken into two parts: Rnd 10-A and Rnd 10-B
Round 10-A: *YO3; rep from * to end end of rnd. (How to: *Take yarn to peg 1, ewrap peg 1 three times; peg 1 has 4 loops. Repeat the same process with the remaining 39 pegs.).
Round 10-B: k to the end of rnd.
(How to: lift the bottommost loop up and off the pegs; each peg should remain with the 3 ewraps on it.)
TIP: Combine Rnd 10-A and 10-B as one Rnd as follows: Ewrap peg 3 times (for the YO3), then lift the bottommost loop, then move to the next peg and do the same. Each peg should have 3 loops on it.
Round 11: k to the end of rnd.
(How to: First, unravel the ewraps from the peg (it will look like an elongated stitch). Take yarn to the front of the peg and knit the peg as normal. Be careful that the stitch stays on the peg and does not “pop” off the peg.)
Round 12: As Rnd 10.
Round 13: p to the end of rnd.
Round 14: k to the end of rnd.
Round 15: p to the end of rnd.
Rep Rnds 12-15: 6 more times.
Rep Rnds 10 and 11.
Next rnd: *k2tog; rep from * to the end of rnd. (20 sts rem).
How to: move loop from odd number peg to the even number peg. Each even peg (2, 4, 6, etc) should have 2 loops on it. Knit the round, treating both loops on each peg as one loop.
Bind off with gather removal method. Weave ends in.
Set the stitches by gently tugging on the hat vertically. All the stitches should be elongated and open.

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.
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 🙂
