In part one, we cover set up of the loom and we work through the first 8 rounds of the hat. At the end of Part I, you will have the brim done–the part with the ribbing of the hat.
Gather your materials and let’s get started!
Round 9: *yo, k2tog; rep from * to the end of round.
(How to: *Move the loop from the first peg over to the second peg, first peg is empty, second peg has 2 loops on it. E-wrap the first peg thus creating the YO. Then ewrap the second peg, lift the bottommost two loops off the peg. Repeat from * to the end of round)
Round 10: Knit with the e-wrap method.
Round 11: Move stitch marker one peg to the left (peg 2). This peg (peg 2) becomes Peg 1. *yo, k2tog; rep from * to the end of round. (How to: see Row 9 on the break down).
Round 12: Knit with the e-wrap method.
Part 3 will be posted next week–it will cover the Gather Bind off.
