This hat knits up quick in one evening and would look great in any color!
I Loom Knit this hat for my oldest daughter to match a pea coat I bought her for Christmas.  It turned out so cute that I loomed her a matching pair of Boot Toppers to go with it.  Both items turned out really nice and I wanted to share the patterns with you!  I hope you like them as much as I do. #freeloomknittingpatterns #loomknitslouchhat #loomknitboottoppers #loomknitbootcuffpatterns #loomknithatpatterns

Finished Length:  9" but can be lengthened with blocking (if using natural fibers like wool) and assuming you are using similar weight yarns. #freeloomknittingpatterns #loomknitslouchhatpattern #loomknithat #loomknittingpatterns #loomknitstripedslouchhat #loomknitstripedhat

For the 14 knit rows, is it a U wrap instead of the E wrap? Just want to make sure as I am still new at looking. Thank you!

Hello Whistfull, Yes you can use the U-Knit or the regular/true knit stitch for this portion of the pattern. Thank you for visiting the blog and Happy Looming!-Nicole

Hello, I love the hat. Just wish you have video so I can follow :)

Nicole F. Cox said...

Hello Unknown! Every time I hear someone say "I wish you had a video so I can follow" I feel a little sad inside. Videos have become a crutch for learning. It is crucial to learn how to read patterns in all knitting and crochet fiber arts or you can never advance and will always be dependent on a "human see, human do" platform. I will never do video patterns for this reason. I'm sorry you are disappointed. I do however have instructional videos for almost all skills used in my patterns on my YouTube channel. There is no reason why any loom knitter of any level can not follow any of my patterns using these videos so I am in total disagreement that you can not "follow along". I believe in you! Have a great day and if you would like to see my videos they are here:
Thank you for visiting my blog, it is much appreciated!
