  1. The hat is knitted from the top down. Ewrap all the odd number pegs: 1, 3, 5, 7, etc. Knit using the one over one stitch (pull one loop over one loop).
  2. Using a second yarn color, ewrap the even number pegs: 2, 4, 6, 8, etc. Knit using the one over one stitch.
  3. Continue with steps 1 and 2 until the knit is 7 inches long. Always wrap the pegs with the same color used in the previous row.
  4. Using the color that you would like for the brim of the hat, create a ribbed brim by alternating ewrap and purl as you knit around the loom for 10 rows. 
  5. Remove the hat from the loom by loosely crocheting once through each stitch as you remove it from the loom. Add a loose chain stitch between each of the loops.
  6. Sew through each loop at the top of the knit to pull closed the top of the hat.

As an alternative method, Jeannette also reversed the pattern knitting it from bottom to top. This prevented the brim from becoming too tight at the cast off. Here is the version of the hat knitted from bottom to top.
