  1. Use the gauge that is provided and then try to match it to your loom. You could also use the regular number of pegs that you use for a hat in your 1/2 gauge and follow the stitch pattern. The stitch pattern is a multiple of 4 (*k2, p2), worked for about 5 inches, then one round of knit, then again the ribbing as in the beginning, except reversed (*p2, k2), knit for 5 inches, then a few rounds in stockinette. Then bind off.

  2. Regular Knit Stitch. If you want to substitute with the uknit stitch, you can do it, however, the item may be smaller. The reverse rib (p2,k2) was done so that when you flip over the brim, the knits sit inside the purls of the bottom layer.
