Last Minute Slouchy Hat: How to videos

Video Loom-a-long for the Last Minute Slouchy Hat is up!Kids and all n one loom 022

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!

 

 

 

 

Last Minute Slouchy Hat Loom-Along. In part 1, we covered the first 8 rounds of the pattern. In Slouchy Hat 018part 2, we will cover Rounds 9-12.

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.

  • I currently have 3 sizes of your knitting boards plus the sock loom. I haven’t gotten a chance to make a pair socks yet but have started. As you can see on my website I have been busy making mostly jewelry.

    I love the boards and have made dish clothes and washcloths. Started an afghan and working on that I am glad to see the pattern for the slouch hat I have wanted one. good luck to u thanks for what all u do

  • I have my very own all-in-one loom now (hooray!) and am getting ready to start this hat project. I want to increase the size a bit, since my head is a little bigger than average and I want to make sure it is still nice and slouchy…so I was wondering what the stitch/peg multiple is on this hat. Thanks for any help! : D

  • Slouchy hats are so popular these days. It’s fun to see that it can be made on this board!

  • I am making the slouchy hat when i move over on row 11 to left as peg 1 and keep moving to the left the yarn yarn is now about 3 inches behind pegs iam about mid way down the board and not sure if i just keep skipping pegs and move to left as peg 1 it just looks different

  • Sandy,
    Can you take a picture of this and posted somehow so that we can see it? Your yarn shouldn’t be 3 inches long behind the knitting. It should only be skipping one peg every two rows or so.

  • I am working on the slouchy hat, and find the video very helpful and easy to follow. The moving of the stitch marker to the left, after the e wrap is done. Is this what makes the hat have that ‘slouchy’ look?

    Back to work!

  • All I have are the Looms & Threads round set, can you tell me how to make this on one of those? I have a 36 and 41 peg round. I love your videos you have taught me so much

  • where is video 3?? im ready to bind off and not sure how.

  • There is no video 3 at this moment. When I was creating these videos my camera suffered death and video #3 never made it out alive. I haven’t had the chance to redo it since I got my new camera. However, the bind off is simple, it is just a gather bind off, just like any other hat, nothing special.

Last Minute Slouchy Hat Pattern

Slouchy HatIt was Tuesday morning and it was my turn to carpool the kids to school. I was running around like crazy that morning and I hadn’t even had a chance to change out of my pajamas. 6 kids were in the car waiting for me and the clock was ticking. I didn’t had a chance to go upstairs and brush my hair and make myself look half-decent, but as I was going out the door, I saw my slouchy hat and put it on. In a second, I went from looking disheveled to presentable and that my friend’s is how the name of the slouchy hat came to be. It is my last minute emergency tool! I love it! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Materials

Loom: All-n-One Loom

Stitches: k, p, e-wrap, k2tog, yo.

Yarn: 130 yards of worsted weight
yarn. Araucania Aysen was used in sample (Less than 1 skein).

Notions: Knitting tool, tapestry
needle, and removable stitch marker.

Gauge: 8.5 sts= 2 inches in double ribbing

Size: Fits up to a head circumference of about 21 inches.

Level: Intermediate

Notes: Working clockwise around the knititng loom. The ribbing section is done with the knit Allnone-2stitch, may substitute with the flat stitch or the u-stitch. The rest of the hat is done with the e-wrap stitch. Important: Note that on Round 11, we move the first stitch one place to the left (clockwise) to keep the pattern slanted. We will use the stitch marker to keep track of our new Peg 1 position. We keep moving it after each pattern repeat so each time you do a row 11, you move the stitch marker over to mark the new Peg 1 position.

Knitting Loom Settings: set the knitting loom to 80 pegs (35 on each of the long rails and the two sliders). 

Abbreviations:
k=knit stitch
p=purl stitch
k2tog=knit two stitches together
yo= yarn over (simply e-wrap the peg that needs the yarn over)

Directions

Cast on 80 stitches, join to work in the round. Place stitch marker on 1st peg.

Round 1-8: *k2, p2; rep from * to the end of round.

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 and 12: 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.

Repeat Rounds 9-12: until item measures 9 inches from cast on edge.

Bind off with gather removal method.

Steam block to open the lace, be careful not to steam the ribbing portion as this will loosen the stitches.

All-n-One Knitting Loom Launch!

All one one 2 jpg

The All-n-One knitting loom by the Authentic Knitting Board company.

We have all been waiting for the much anticipated release of this new knitting loom by the KnittingBoard.com company. I have had the pleasure to work and create with this knitting loom for the past two months.

The moment it arrived, I rushed to open the box and was immediately in love with the knitting loom. Hundreds of design possibilies came to mind. It is a knitting loom that can go from making a little itty bitty baby bootie to a shawl, even a blanket!

Down to the knitty gritty of the loom. Gauge: it is small gauge, pegs are at 3/8″ apart. The knitting loom consists of 2 long rails (48 pegs on Kids and all n one loom 028each rail), 2 sliders–with 5 pegs each slider, for a total peg configuration of 106 pegs. It also comes with two spacers to use the knitting loom as a knitting board. The pegs are made out of nylon, giving the user a very smooth peg to slide your knitting tool on. Speaking of the peg–it is grooved to facilitate knitting and the pegs also have a small cap at the top to prevent the yarn from accidentaly sliding off the peg. The knitting loom itself is made of hardwood giving you a solid, strong loom. The wood has been varnished to provide you with a smooth, glide-your-hands-on-me knitting loom.

All-n-One loom will include the following:

  • 2 long rails (48 pegs each)
  • 2 sliders (5 pegs each)
  • 2 spacers
  • Knitting tool
  • Booklet with basic instructions and patterns.

The knitting loom is a delight to work on. It is so smooth to the touch and since it is made out of Allnone-2wood, it feels warm the more you use it. The pegs are smooth but not so smooth as to make the yarn pop off the top. They have enough grab for the yarn to stay on but yet smooth enough so the knitting tool slides easily on it. Adjusting it was a breeze too. All you have to do is loosen the wing nuts at the ends and slide the slider up/down, tighten the wing nut and you are good to go.

And now that I told you all about the knitting loom, let me show you what I have created on it so far.

AllnOneProjects1

 

Three of the patterns are available through the KnittingBoard.com website, in the free pattern section, the Lacy Shawl and the Cowl. The purple hat instructions come with the knitting loom.  Look for another pattern (the slouchy hat in the center) coming shortly.

I have used DK weight yarn (the gray hat that my daughter NyNy is modeling and it gives me an impressive 11 sts per 2 in. Worsted weight, I had 9.5 sts per 2 inches.

Here are some quick numbers for your use:

Hats with Worsted Weight yarn

Adult Men: 88 pegs

Women S/M/L: 76/80/84 pegs

Youth: 72

Children: 64

Toddlers: 60

Baby: 54

As I play more with the knitting loom, I will be posting peg numbers for socks and other basic items.  Coming next…the Last Minute Slouchy Hat!

  • I want one! Great looking loom.

  • With the hat pattern that’s included with the loom, there are instructions for k1tog that require moving the 5 peg piece as the “round” decreases…. this is very confusing as a beginner! Any chance there is a video somewhere that might explain it better?

CHA show with Deborah Norville

We just returned from our annual Craft and Hobby trade show in Anaheim, California, and WOW– it was 4 full days packed with a lot of fun as we were able to see all the new crafts coming out this fall.  We met a lot of new visitors at our booth and a special one, Deborah Norville who is now, a new Knitting Board owner. Deborah stopped by our booth to enjoy our 48″ X 60″ Berry Burst afghan. It was knit on our 28″ Knitting Board with the Deborah Norville Serenity Chunky which is a super chunky, soft yarn and makes a great cozy afghan. This yarn is great for Knitting Boards as it works up really quickly.  You may want to try this for your next cozy afghan in any size.

Thank you for Donations!!

We want to thank everyone who participated in our annual donation drive. We want to especially thank the following knitters for making this happen: Frances Shelton, Sue Kreitzer, Catherine, Julie Milliron, and Abby.

Thanks to those involved, we sent 2 large boxes of warm hats, scarves, slippers and mittens to our American Veterans. We also sent 2 large boxes to the children and their families of the Dakota Native Americans in need in Chamberlain, SD.  This was many knitted toys to be distributed during the holidays as well as lots of warm clothing.
Our last 2 boxes contained mostly baby and new infant knit along with beautiful blankets that were knit and crocheted.  These were well received by Mary’s Center for abused moms and newborn infants in need in our capitol of Washington, DC.

We have received a beautiful letter from St Joseph’s School in SD thanking all of you for your kindness and hope.

I can just picture the children and the Veterans with their beautiful hand knit/crocheted gifts and the happy smiles on their faces.

Thank you all again!

Have a wonderful 2012!

Kim and Pat
