If you remember my last blog I started 3 hats and worked the bottoms. I used a 31 peg loom, loom hook and yarn needle along with 4 colors of yarn for hat number 1. It is based on a brim, has stripes and bobbles. But it is still simple. Most loom projects are. I used the flat knit stitch, with the u-wrap on this. My yarn was thick enough to use 1 strand. Be sure to use 2 strands or thick ply yarn for a warm hat.
This hat is about 9 inches high so the brim can be pull up for a woman.
Double e-wrap each peg, knit off.
Rounds 2-6 knit.
Round 7 purl
Rounds 8 -14 knit. Bring the 1st round of loops up onto the pegs and knit off for the brim.
Rounds 14-20 knit. Attach new color b.
Rounds 21-26 knit. Change back to color A.
