Bird's Eye Loom Knit Hat

Lion Brand® Hometown USA®


Exact gauge is not essential to this project.


1. The instructions provided in the loom manual for casting on are the same for both flat knitting and knitting in the round (when you make a tube). These instructions are listed under the heading of SINGLE KNITTING.
2. Follow loom manual instructions for SINGLE KNITTING for how to cast on, knit, purl, and bind off in the gathered method.
3. Hat is knit in the round. Once you've cast on for the Hat, continue knitting in a clockwise direction around loom for single knitting in the round.
4. A contrast color peg is used to mark the beginning of each round.

Loom Configuration
Use the following pieces: (2) 28-hole semi-circular pieces, (2) 6-hole pieces, (2) 12-hole pieces.

Connect pieces to form an oval as follows: 28-hole semi circular piece > 12-hole piece > 6-hole piece > 28-hole semi circular piece > 6-hole piece > 12-hole piece.

Insert one large grey peg anywhere along loom set-up to mark beginning of round, skip one hole, then insert a large pink peg into the next hole. Continue placing large pink pegs into every other hole along each 28-hole semi-circular piece, 12-hole piece, and 6-hole piece - 46 pegs placed.

Beginning at contrast color peg, with B, cast onto all pegs.
Rounds 1-4: With B, purl.
Round 5: *Knit 1 peg with B, knit 1 peg with A, repeat from * around.
Round 6: *Knit 1 peg with A, knit 1 peg with B, repeat from * around.
Repeat Rounds 5 and 6 until you have completed 68 rounds.
Bind off in the gathered method. Pull tightly to gather Hat closed. Knot to secure.


Thread yarn end into yarn needle supplied with loom and weave yarn ends into the fabric of the Hat.
Insert 2 small pegs 6 holes apart anywhere along one semi-circular piece. Wrap B 30 times around pegs. Cut B. Cut a 6 in. length of B and tie around wrapped strands between pegs. Remove pegs and clip yarn. Shake or fluff pom-pom and trim ends evenly. Use the ends of the knotted strand to attach pom-pom to top of Hat.

Bird's Eye Loom Knit Hat Reviewed by Paula Morris on 2012-01-16 ****
Loved the pattern. I made it in a white and purple colorway. Two corrections - the pattern says to repeat rounds 1 and 2 for the hat above the cuff but should say repeat rounds 5 and 6. And it also says "until you have completed 68 rounds." That would be an incredibly tall hat! I made the hat about 7" tall which was about 21 rounds.
