Loom Pattern: Slouchie Beanie Hat

You will need:

  • Large circular loom (41 pegs/29cm)
  • Loom hook
  • Darning needle
  • Scissors
  • Tape measure
  • 1-2 reels of wool/yarn

  1. Cast on using the a slipknot for your first stitch and e-wrap for consecutive stitches
  2. Once you have your first row continue using the e-wrap/knit stitch method until your wool reaches a length of approximately 7-8 centimetres.
  3. You are going to be using this to make the brim of your slouchie beanie.
  4. Find the first row and loop each stitch back onto the loom pegs. (tutorial here)
  5. Hide the tail of the wool inside the brim of your hat.
  6. Hook the bottom stitch up over your first stitch and do this for the whole row to knit your brim.
  7. Once the brim is done you will now follow the pattern of:
    1. knit/e-wrap the first peg
    2. move the loop from the second peg over to the third peg and wrap the second peg
    3. purl your third peg
    4. knit/e-wrap your fourth pegIMG_20190222_234104
  8. Continue this pattern for the entire round
  9. As there are an odd number of pegs on the loom it may seem wonky, this is fine!
  10. Continue this pattern until your yarn length reaches approximately 26cm
  11. Wrap your yarn twice around the loom and cut to that length.
  12. Now it’s time to cast off using the drawstring method (tutorial here)
  13. Using your darning needle, pull the top of the hat closed as much as possible, turn inside out and stitch together from the inside.
  14. You have successfully made a Slouchie beanie hat!
