I had some small balls of yarn that I needed to use up and so I made this small baby hat using up the scraps.
This is a fun craft for kids. Ten years and older could easily make these.

Are there a video I can watch? I am having trouble following the instructions in New Stitches on Circle Looms.
Did you possibly look on YouTube? Type in what you are looking for and it might show up for there are all types of video's for just about anything! Hope this helps
So far I have not found a video.... I also have had a difficult time with the pattern and am a visual learner!! Loomahat.com promised a video but it has not gone up yet but I keep watching for it.
No videos available
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'm having trouble too. The woven top is too loose.
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?
