The idea for this design developed through wanting something very quick to knit as a gift using either a knifty knitter round hat loom or similar size in gauge wooden loom, fluffy yarn like a mohair mix preferably with sparkles and winter or spring themed for my daughters. The stitch pattern is very quick and easy to remember making this the perfect project for all occasions not just during the winter but ideal for early springtime or autumn chilly weather as well.

Loom and Yarn :
Knifty Knitter or other larger gauge round hat loom any number of pegs as long as its large enough for the person’s head you are making this for :
bulky, chunky, or boucle - use one strand
aran, DK or worsted weight - use two strands as one

(1.5 x 50g Rowan Romance sparkly yarn on a 3/4 inch in gauge wooden hat loom which is the same gauge as the dark green 32 peg knifty knitter round loom, was used in the example shown)

you will also need your loom hook and a sewing needle to weave in any ends
