This hat is a quick and fun way to incorporate colour and texture into your knits.

Loom bands are taking over my house. My daughter has little stashes of them in various places. It’s nowhere near as bad as my own tiny yarn problem, but they do seem to turn up everywhere. I found one in the potted plant yesterday!

They are a lot of fun though, and don’t they come in such mad colours? I had an idea to incorporate them into my knitting and came up with this hat pattern. I have also created a video showing you how to knit loom bands into your projects.
