Knitting Stocking Cap with Brim for the Knifty Knitter Round Looms

This is a very basic knitted stocking cap with a brim. It can be made for guys and gals of all ages. The instructions call for a pom pom at the top, which is optional. I recommend the:
  • red loom for young children and babies
  • green loom for older children and small adults
  • yellow loom and purple hat loom for adults.

  1. E-wrap the round loom and knit until it reaches 3 inches for the red loom, 4 inches for the green loom, or 5 inches for the yellow and purple looms.
  2. Pull up the first row of knit and place it on the loom. Knit to make a double thickness brim. 
  3. Change colors and knit another 6 1/2 inches for the red loom, 7 inches for the green loom and 8 inches for the yellow or purple looms.
  4. Use the "gathered stitch" to cast off the loom. This creates the top of the hat. Cut the working yarn to 12 inches and thread it through a yarn needle. Starting with the peg closest to the working yarn thread the working yarn through each loop and off the peg.  Pull the yarn tight to gather the top of the hat and tie it in a square knot. Cut the working yarn to a few inches and weave it through the inside of the cap.
