How to Crochet a Hat With a Round Loom

Save

Crafters can use a round loom and a crochet hook to create toboggan-style hats in a multitude of colors. Round looms come in a variety of sizes and can be used to create several different items. Hat-making is a common use for the looms. Skilled crafters can use the looms to create detailed, decorative pieces.

Things You'll Need

  • Round loom
  • Medium-weight yarn
  • Crochet hook to fit the yarn
  • Yarn needle
  • Form a slip knot and place it on a peg on the round loom. If your loom has an anchor peg on the side, use the peg closest to the anchor peg.

  • Place a crochet hook in your right hand and the yarn in the left. Put the crochet hook through the slip knot, between the peg and the knot. Hook the working length of yarn with the crochet hook and pull it through the loop of yarn, then hook the new loop over the next peg. Repeat this process until the entire loom is threaded, with the first peg having two loops on it.

  • Take the working yarn in your hand and bring it toward the center of the loom. Loop the yarn counter-clockwise around the next peg, ending with the yarn in the center of the loom again.

  • Repeat this wrapping for each peg, ending at the beginning peg. If you have an anchor peg, wrap the working yarn around it.

  • Hook the bottom yarn with the crochet hook, starting with the first peg. Pull it up, over the top loop of yarn and off of the peg toward the middle of the loom. Repeat for each peg.

  • Continue adding rows by wrapping and lifting yarn to the center until the hat is the length desired.

  • Finish by cutting a tail on the working yarn about 15 inches long, and thread the needle on the tail. Beginning at the top of the peg, insert the needle between the peg and the two strands of yarn on the peg, pulling the yarn all the way through. Lift the stitches off the peg. Continue all the way around the loom and tie off, threading the ends into the hat.

  • Gather the top and use the crochet hook to pull the yarn ends inside the hat. Embellish the hat with pom-poms or other decorations as desired.
