This is a fun hat. Use crazy colors to add to the fun!
To make this hat:
36 peg loom
knitting loom tool
2 different colors of yarn
Directions ~ hold 2 strands of one color yarn together to work as one, and cast on using the chain cast on. This video shows the cast on going to the left, whereas, I am more comfortable to the right. Do whichever you feel comfortable with.
Once you have cast on, complete rows 1-6 with 2 e-wraps, then 2 purls. The following video shows the knit and purl stitches. We will call this color- Color A. Remember, for this hat, you will use the e-wrap knit stitch.
The remainder of the hat is made by alternating 2 rounds of each color, without cutting to the yarn until the had is ready to be bind off.
Drop the color A to the inside of the loom and begin using Color B. Again using 2 strands, complete rows 7-8 using e-wrap.
Take color A out of the loom, dropping Color B inside the loom and continue by using color A.
When you drop and take out your skeins of yarn, cross the yarn to keep it secure inside the hat.
Continue this pattern until you get to row 30. 2 rows of color equals one band - you need 6 bands of each color.
Bind off with the Simple Bind off
With the right side together, f;atten hat. Working through both thicknesses, sew across bound off edge. Weave in yarn ends and clip ends close to work.
