Loom Knit Simply Cozy Hat Reviewed by Joseph Hejl on 2012-01-04 *****
Love the hat. Worn past two days with wind chills in the teens. Head stayed warm. Do suggest some modifications to the pattern, though. First off, pattern calls for 58 peg setup (2) 28-semicircles, (2) 6 hole, and (4) 12 hole. My resulting hat (as shown in figures 1&2) is huge. 25 inches around for my 22 1/8 inch head. The pattern claimed it would be around 20 inches. No way. Suggest using only (2) 12 hole sections, not (4). This results in a 46 peg setup and the hat shown in figures 3&4. I knitted the brim very tightly and it came out being around 19 inches inside. Also, the pattern forms the brim by using a knit, purl repeated 3 times. This gives a brim of about 3/4 inches. The picture seems to show a taller brim. I made mine 1 3/4 inches by repeating the knit, purl (6) more times for a total of seven knit, purls, not the four specified in the pattern. The pattern description also calls for making the hat 11 inches long (tall). After making the brim, I knitted for 47 more rows. The best I could measure while the hat was on the frame is about 7 1/2 inches with the brim rolled up as it would be worn. Fits me wonderfully, fully covering ears and coming down to eye brows in front. Again, I knitted the brim very tightly because I didn't want the hat riding up or down, which it does not. The rest of the hat I knitted with normal tension. In my view - good hat, faulty pattern.
