Sew the earflaps in place as follows: mattress stitch the earflap to the cast on edge of the hat, it will be sewn over twelve stitches on the cast on edge. Skip 18 sts from the cast on edge, mattress stitch sew the other earflap onto the next 12 sts.  Front of the hat will have the remaining 22 sts from cast on edge.

On the front of the hat, use the picture of the hat to position and sew the eyes in place. Sew the nose in place after sewing the eyes in place.

Using MC, CC, and W together, leave a 16″ length and cut.
Keeping the strands together, fold in half, pass the lengths through two stitches near the top of the hat, to the top-side of the eyes  make a slip knot with the length of yarn as close to the hat as possible. Trim the length of yarn to leave about 1″ ears. Do the same to the other side.

TASSELS
Make 2
Using MC, CC, B, W: cut 30″ length of yarn. Fold in half, using a crochet hook, hook at the half point (at the fold), and pull through the last stitch of the earflap. Make a slip knot as close as possible to the earflap.
Divide yarn strands into three groups (6, 5, 5) make a braid. Finish the braid with a slip knot. Trim the lengths of yarn, leaving a 1 inch tail.

Here is a picture of my crochet hats, my own pattern too, and I based myself on the crochet version for the loom knitted version.

Owl Hats crochet

 

On designing these, the most difficult part came to the eyes. It is very hard to knit a flat circle on a knitting loom as you are not able to increase/decrease easily. I went through 4 different ideas and finally, I did what I first thought would work but didn’t want to go that route, but it was the one that worked the best. The eyes are created flat with short-rows. I tried the increasing and decreasing in a circle and I found it to be completely a hassle and was taking the joy of the project away so I scrapped that idea. I did them flat, decreasing so that I could make a circle, the result didn’t look right at all. The short-rows was the best method that I could find for the circular flat discs needed for the eyes. 

If you know how to crochet, you can wip out a pair of circles in about 5 minutes flat, so you could go that route. Another option is to use felt for the eyes.

  • You guys are awesome. You keep sharing such wonderful patterns with clear instructions and even video tutorials when needed at no cost to your appreciative audience. It’s what sets Authentic Knittingboard apart from the rest. Thank you for your generosity and great products.

  • Vivo en un lugar muy apartado de Colombia Sur America donde hace bastante frio. Mi nombre es Sonia Canabal Luna, soy madre cabeza de familia con un hijo con sindrome de down de 18 años, estoy sin empleo y consulte esta pagina porque en mis momentos difíciles de soledad aprendo a tejer; me gustaría si la persona dueña de esta empresa pudiera por favor ayudarme con algunos videos bien claros donde yo pueda aprender a tejer para ganar dinero y enseñarle a mi hijo especial este hermoso arte. Si ustedes me pueden ayudar por favor mi correo personal es somicalu@hotmail.com. gracias.

  • I’m just completing my first pair of socks on the KB fine gauge adjustable sock loom, and I’d love to try this beautiful pattern next. Is there a way I can adapt it for the fine gauge sock loom (it’s the only loom I have right now)?

    Thank you.

  • Also, what is a “flexible cast on”? So far, I only know the cast-on method that comes with the KB sock loom DVD.

  • The ewrap is a flexible cast on.

  • We will need to calculate the number of pegs needed for your size foot on that loom. Do you know more or less how many pegs you use for your size foot?

  • I use 52-54 pegs on the fine gauge sock loom.

  • Great work. This is a striking afghan. ???? lmk

  • Very striking indeed …
    For charity knitted squares…25cmx25cm can this be done on on a round loom ? Trying to find a pattern for looming … As all are knitted with straight needles .

  • Wow this looks amazing. I’m definitely going to try this.

  • I really wish there was a short video for this. I really want to try it!

  • I really like the look of this blanket, but I have only just purchased an all in one loom, I really don’t understand the instructions. I have not used a loom before and cannot find out how to set up the loom to make these mitred squares

  • […] for completing a Mitered Square afghan like the one featured on the show are here and are included in Isela Phelps’ book, Loom Knitting Afghans: 20 Simple & Snuggly […]

Detailed sample instructions for 16 pegs
K15, W&T peg 16
K14, W&T peg 1.
K13, W&T peg 15
K12, W&T peg 2
K11, W&T peg 14
K10, W&T peg 3
K9, W&T peg 13
K8, W&T peg 4
K7, W&T peg 12
K6, W&T peg 5
*From this point on, whenever you have to work a peg that has 2 wraps, treat the wraps and the stitch on the peg as ONE loop.
K7, W&T peg 13 (peg 13 has 2 wraps)
K8, W&T peg 4 (peg 4 hast 2 wraps)
K9, W&T peg 14 (peg 14 has 2 wraps)
K10, W&T peg 3 (peg 3 has 2 wraps)
K11, W&T peg 15 (peg 15 has 2 wraps)
K12, W&T peg 2 (peg 2 has 2 wraps)
K13, W&T peg 16 (peg 16 has 2 wraps)
k14, W&T peg 1 (peg 1 has 2 wraps)

Peg 1 and peg 16 have wraps on them. Leave them with the wraps. On the next round, work the wraps together with the loop (treat them as if they were 1 loop on the peg).

Next round: *k3, p1; rep from * to the end of round

Rep last round until foot measures 2 inches less than desired foot length.

Cut MC leaving a 6 inch yarn tail, join CC. Continue with CC.

Next round: k to the end of round.

Work a short row toe over 16 (18, 20) sts.

CLOSING THE TOE

Place the stitches from peg 1 to peg 16 on  one double pointed needle

Place the remaining stitches on the second double pointed needle.

Use the kitchener stitch to close the toe.

Weave ends in. Block lightly.

Using SCC, use the double stitch to embroider some seeds on to the top of the sock. I do not recommend using beads as these make the socks uncomfortable to wear with shoes.

  • Love these, thank you very much.

  • Please do a video making these.

  • The colors are so bold and beautiful. Love these little socks. One word: Sweet.

  • thank you :)

  • Please make a video showing how to make these socks.

  • It is just a regular sock pattern that has a different color cuff. If you can loom a regular sock, you can use the same instructions for this. The little seeds are duplicate stitching, done after the sock is completed.
