I am trying to make the woven hat pattern from Knifty Knitter's "Learn New Stitches" book for circle looms. I am having trouble following the woven pattern. The yellow loom seems too big.


I have only used this one for making draw string bags to use as totes. Has anyone made this hat yet? Could someone put instructions on You Tube? I asked at Michael's for a video, but they didn't have anything. Thanks for weaving me out of my misery.

Is there a forum for Knifty Knitter at the manufacturer's website, where you could ask? Beyond that, I'm sorry I can't be of much help, because I don't know how to use the Knifty Knitter. :-(

I have made many of these hats. I use two yarns at once. The yellow loom is big but when you are done with the hat and take it off the loom, it does seem to shrink a little. You mention you are having problems, but you don't say exactly what the problems are. I also think the yellow one is a bit big but not for a man, and I use the green one, next size down for a smaller size. I do not pull the yarn tight, ever. I bought a kit from Reader's Digest a few years back to learn how to make sweaters and such and the loom from that kit has more pegs and closer together and I use that one most of the time now and love it. You can also make one with a round picture frame and nails. Go on line and check out videos.

I'm having trouble too. The woven top is too loose.

Are there a video I can watch? I am having trouble following the instructions in New Stitches on Circle Looms.

I made a designed hat (with snowflakes around it) on the green Knifty Knitter loom, which has 36 pegs, but it was too small. The bigger loom I have is yellow and has 41 pegs. Problem! 41 is a prime number, so I can't divide it out to make an evenly spaced pattern around my hat. Can I just skip a peg, or will that make my hat look funny? I mean, can I use 40 of the 41 pegs, since 40 is not a prime number?
