The pattern begins at the bottom of the hat.


Step 1

EWrap Knifty Knitter Loom

E-Wrap the round Knifty Knitter loom 2 times. After wrapping the loom the first time, push the loops down to make it easier to wrap the loom the second time. A mistake that beginners often make when wrapping the loom, is to wrap too tightly. Leave plenty of slack in the yarn as the loom is wrapped. Yarns with a bit of stretch to them work best for loom knitting.


Step 2

Knit off by using the Knifty Knitter hook to lift the bottom loop over the top loop and off the loom.

Step 3

E-wrap the loom and knit off 2 more times.

Step 4

Do not E-Wrap the loom. This step begins with only one loop on each peg. Take the loop off the first peg and place it on the second peg. This leaves peg one empty and peg two with two loops. Repeat by removing the loop from peg three and placing it on peg four. Continue this pattern around the Knifty Knitter loom. When finished, go back around the loom and knit off on each peg that has two loops, lifting the bottom loop over the top loop. This leaves every other peg on the Knifty Knitter loom with a loop.


Step 5

E-Wrap the Knifty Knitter loom creating a loop on each peg.

Step 6

Make Hat Knifty Knitter Pattern

Knit off the pegs that have 2 loops. When finished each peg should be wrapped one time.



Step 7

E-Wrap all the pegs on the loom. Knit off. Repeat this step three times.

Step 8

Repeat steps 4 through 7, the second time through repeat step 7 four times.

Step 9

Repeat steps 4 through 7, the third time through repeat step 7 five times.


Step 10

Keep repeating the steps until the hat reaches the desired length. For an adult hat, this will need to be repeated approximately 6 times. For a baby hat it will need to be repeated approximately 3 times.

Step 11

Removing the Loops from the Knifty Knitter Loom

To remove the hat from the knifty knitter loom, cut the yarn approximately 1 foot from the loom. Thread the yarn through a yarn needle. Using the yarn needle thread the yarn through each loop and remove it from the peg.
