In this video tutorial, learn how to knit a hat with a loom! If you’ve never knitted before, or never used a loom before – no worries, you can make this! It isn’t difficult at all, and I’ve tried to simplify the steps as much as possible.
I first learned how to make these in elementary school. My classmates and I used to make so many of them! These hats are simple and quick enough that they are a great project for kids and adults alike!
Time needed: ~a few hours
- Yarn, I used Bernat Maker Home Dec yarn in aqua and pacific varigate
- Knitting Loom, I used this one from Michaels. It needs to be the same size and have the same number of pegs for it to turn out exactly like it did in the video. Here’s the set of all the knitting looms.
A summary of the steps in this video:
•Alternate between knitting and purling each row until it reaches about 5 inches long. Bring first row up and put them back onto the pegs. Knit these together.
•Tie a knot to create a loop in a new color of yarn. Put this on first peg and wrap and knit this row.
•For the rest of the rows, follow the pattern of knitting 4 stitches, and purling 2, knit 4, purl 2. Continue until the hat is about 9 inches long.
•Cut the working yarn, leaving about a two foot tail. Run this yarn through each loop on each peg, and remove them from the pegs. Pull tight to gather the top together and tie some knots through the first loop to secure. Put leftover tail inside hat or weave through.
