Loom knit hat

I made this hat using the green knifty knitter loom. I used Loops & Threads yarn for this hat. I changed the color of the pegs in intervals of 6 so that way I can decrease and have a flat top. I also made the brim starting from a crochet cast on, purl one row, ewrap one row, purl one row. It gave me a nice brim without curling. I adapted this technique from a pattern on youtube from Goodknitkisses. She was making a granny round. Really nice pattern. I made one granny round. Anyway, I changed every sixth peg to a different color that way it will be easier for me to keep track of the decreases. I changed all my looms this way and it gave me more options for different projects. Check her out at Copy this url and check out her videos.

Alicia Crochet Cowl

I crocheted this project with Lion Brand Hometown USA yarn in graphite. It is so cozy, I love it. Bought some wooden buttons and done. I even loom knitted a pair of fingerless mitts. I used a different yarn and added a button. Click on Alicia Cowl to get the free pattern.
