Loom a Hat on the AIO (Updated)

AllnOneHat smallerAll-n-One Knitting Loom Hat Numbers

The table provided has 3 different numbers, one for DK weight yarn and the other two with worsted weight yarn. I have gotten two different gauges with the worsted weight yarn. I have gotten 4.5 and 4 stitches to the inch. I provided a table with both gauges. All the hat numbers have a 15% negative ease already built in. For example, the adult male hat, with 84 pegs at a gauge of 4.5 stitches will yield a tube that is about 18.6 inches. We want a hat to fit snugly, approximately about 10-15%, with a 15% negative ease, this hat will fit a circumference up to 21.4 inches. All the peg numbers provided have also been rounded to a multiple of 4, if you do not need a multiple of 4, deduct or add 2 pegs.

Hat shown in the picture on the right is a DK weight hat using 84 pegs.

This table was updated on 7/8/13 to include DK weight numbers and Fingering (Sock weight yarn) numbers. I test knitted on the loom using Fingering Weight yarn and was able to get a nice fabric at a gauge of 7 sts to the inch.

  • Awesome!

  • I have a problem with this chart are you making a panel or knitting in the round ?? if so in the round you would make a baby premie hat to fit an adult i uses the all-in-one loom with 34 pegs and made a nice size premie hat. has anyone made a premie hat using 72 pegs and had it fit??????? I also make baby hats using the blue plastic ring of 24 pegs.

    Help!!!!!! has anyone made a baby sweater on the all-in-one loom. and can anyone tell me the convergen using the plastic loom patterns on the all-in-one loom?

  • Jewel,
    The peg number provided go with the gauge that I received when I was test knitting. The 72 pegs is if you are using really, really thin yarn, fingering weight–such as lace yarn or sock yarn. The table provides the gauge that we are “assuming” for each of the sizes. Hope this helps.

  • not really as i used yarn fingering weight yarn and if i wrapped 72 pegs the hat would fit me (adult) how do you find the gauge and so you make a single row hat or do you go in a circle???

  • it sounds like you are making a panel and not a circle as i did with both the all-in-one loom and the little blue round plastic loom. I am trying to learn to make baby out fits and such with the loom as i am not very good with knitting needles. hope you can help me with this.

  • With these, I was making a circle. I did a test swatch with fingering weight yarn and my swatch gave the the gauge of 7 sts per inch. Of course, my little hat will be a tube that is about 10 inches in circumference, so it will fit a head that would be anywhere from 10-13 inches in circumference.

    To find the gauge: knit a panel that is at least 4 inches wide by 4 inches tall. Then flatten it out on a flat surface, place a ruler on top of it, then count the number of stitches you get in a inch, then count how many rows you get in an inch.

  • thanks that helps but you have 128 pegs for adult male but the all-in-one loom has only 107 pegs how would you make a hat like that with less pegs???? or do you use only worsted weight for adult and children’s hats ???

  • Thanks for this. Do you maybe have this for the sock loom( KB SOCK LOOM Adjustable)?

  • Is it not recommended that you use a bulky yarn? Or did you just not figure out the peg counts for it? I’m wanting to use a bulkier yarn on the AIO and I’m not having any luck figuring out how many pegs for a newborn hat

  • I am so-o pleased to have found your chart to give me something to work from. I am still waiting for Amazon to deliver my AIO loom so have been searching the web to find as many patterns as possible but needed the confidence that experience would give me. Your patterns, chart and `goodknitkisses` have given me a good grounding, now with your chart I feel I will have that confidence to start looming.
    Thank you.

  • Is this chart using a flat knit stitch? I would imagine if using an ewrap or twisted stockinette not as many pegs would be needed?

  • Yes, you are correct. It is using a knit stitch. You would need less pegs if you are using the ewrap stitch.

  • Can you make the last minute slouchy hat if you make the hat smaller since it is to big for me.
    thank you Judy
