This stylish hat has some great techniques to add to your loom knitting repertoire. The brim will show you how to shape fabric and wrap pegs with short rows; the band demonstrates how different knit stitches may be used to shape and turn knitting, and the crown of the hat has a simple diamond bobble design that lets you play with texture on a stockinette background.

The pattern has variations for four different gauge looms in seven different sizes: 41 and 42 pegs in 3/4” gauge; 48 pegs in 5/8” gauge; 59, 60 and 66 pegs in 1/2 “ gauge; and 72 pegs in 3/8” gauge.

My patterns are low vision and screen reader accessible. The text is black, Arial and large print 24 point font. All of the directions are fully written out and no charts are relied on to complete the patterns. No italics are used. They are screen reader and tablet friendly.
