Triple Z - Z hat, Z cowl & Z ears. One pattern makes them all – and they are one in the same. Knit on the bias using a long color stripe yarn, the design looks complex but is truly simple. Z hat may be worn as a beanie or slouchy style hat. It makes a great pony tail or bun hat, too.
The pattern is sized for four loom gauges: 1/2 inch, 3/8 inch small, 3/8 inch fine and 1/4 inch fine.
This loom knit pattern was inspired by the Emergency Hat needle knit pattern by Frankie Brown.
