EXACT GAUGE IS NOT ESSENTIAL FOR THIS PROJECT. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.
Making a Gauge Swatch
Exact gauges is not imporant to this project.
1. The instructions provided in the loom manual for casting on are the same for both flat knitting and knitting in the round (when you make a tube).
These instructions are listed under the heading of SINGLE KNITTING.
2. Once you've cast on for the Hat, continue knitting in a clockwise direction around loom for single knitting in the round.
3. Contrasting color peg is used to mark the beginning of each round for the Hat.
4. Once you've cast on for the Scarf, work back and forth for Single Knitting.
5. Scarf is knit on only one side of the loom.
Loom is configured into a rectangle to make it easier to hold.
Use the following pieces: (2) 28-hole semi-circle pieces, (4) 12-hole pieces, (2) 6-hole pieces.
Connect pieces to form an oval as follows: 28-hole semi-circle piece > 12-hole piece > 12-hole piece > 6-hole piece > 28-hole semi-circle piece > 6-hole piece > 12-hole piece > 12-hole piece.
Insert a large contrast color peg anywhere along loom to mark beginning of round.
Skip one hole, then insert a large peg into every other hole along each 28-hole semi-circle piece, 12-hole piece, and 6-hole piece - 58 working pegs placed.
Following loom manual instructions for knitting in the round, cast onto the 58 pegs.

Insert one large contrast color peg at the right end - 18 working pegs placed.
