Loopy Hat

Lion Brand® Vanna's Glamour® - Vanna's Choice®


9 Loop sts = about 4 in. (10 cm). When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch


Loop st Form a loop in back of work by wrapping the working yarn over index finger, and then bringing yarn towards work again. Hold looped index finger about 1 in. (2.5 cm) away from work, insert hook into next st, catch both strands of loop with hook and draw both through (3 loops on hook), yarn over and draw through all loops on hook.


1. Hat is worked from lower edge up to crown (top of Hat) with 1 strand each of A and B held tog.
2. First row of Hat is joined into a rnd. The remainder of the Hat is worked in continuous rnds. Do not join at the ends of rnds.
3. Hat is worked in Loop st. Loop st isn't difficult, but may be a new technique for you. We strongly encourage you to make a swatch before beginning the Hat, both to check your gauge and to become familiar with the Loop st.

With 1 strand each of A and B held tog, ch 90.
Row 1: Loop st in 2nd ch from hook, *sk 1 ch, Loop st in next ch; rep from * across; taking care not to twist sts, sl st in first st to join into a circle - 45 Loop sts at the end of this rnd. Use beg tail to sew gap at base of first row closed. Place marker in first st for beg of rnd; move marker up as each rnd is completed.
Rnd 2: Loop st in each st around.
Rep Rnd 2 until piece measures 5 in. (12.5 cm) from beg.

Shape Crown (top of Hat)
Next Rnd:
*Loop st in next 4 sts, sk 1 st; rep from * around - 36 sts at the end of this rnd.
Next Rnd: *Loop st in next 3 sts, sk 1 st; rep from * around - 27 sts.
Next Rnd: Rep Rnd 2.
Next Rnd: *Loop st in next 2 sts, sk 1 st; rep from * around - 18 sts.
Next Rnd: Rep Rnd 2.
Next Rnd: *Loop st in next st, sk 1 st; rep from * around - 9 sts.
Fasten off, leaving a long yarn tail. Thread tail through remaining sts and pull to gather. Knot securely.


Cut four 12 in. (30.5 cm) lengths of B and set aside. With 1 strand each of A and B held tog, *wind yarn 20 times around shorter side of cardboard. Slide a strand of B under wraps and knot tightly around loops, slide loops carefully off cardboard; rep from * 3 more times to make 4 bundles of yarn. Gather the bundles in your hand and knot the B strands tog. With B strands, tie pom-pom to Hat.
Weave in ends.

Loopy Hat Reviewed by Theresa Albania on 2012-04-05 ****
I always seem to struggle a bit with the loop stitch, and sometimes have had problems with my loops comming loose.
Still, my daughter likes loop st items very much and has asked me to make this w/ a matching scarf. She wants me to add the eyes from the toddler owl hat, some floppy ears and teeth- big ones- for her Easter bonnet.
