Cheerful Loom Knit Frosty Hat

     I made this hat yesterday for my four year old nephew who said he wanted a "snowman hat" for Christmas.  I was really pleased with how it turned out especially, since I had tried some techniques I hadn't done before...vertical stripes, checkered stitches, etc.  It took more planning and thought than some of my previous patterns.  The final result was worth it and I can't wait to give it to my nephew.  I will be designing a matching scarf to go with it so, if you like this pattern, check back for the scarf.

Looking for some information when doing the 1st row of black for the snowman hat it say to turn up the 1st row..and to take your exactly is this done? Please explain..thanks

Unknown said...

How exactly do you turn up the 1st row of black to make the brim in the snow man's hat?

Nicole F. Cox said...

Hello Unknown, You do it exactly the same way as if you were making a hem or turning up a hat brim at the beginning of the hat. You need to pick up each stitch, one by one, keeping them in line with the pegs so that your brim remains straight. Lift from the rows indicated in the pattern. I hope this helps answer your question.
