10.5 stitches = about 4 in. (10 cm) 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. Hat is knit in the round with one strand each of A and B held together.
2. 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.
3. Once you've cast on for the Hat, continue knitting in a clockwise direction around loom for single knitting in the round.
4. Contrast color peg is used to mark the beginning of each round for the Hat.


Loom Configuration
Use the following pieces: (2) 28-hole semi-circle pieces, (4) 12-hole pieces.
Connect pieces to form an oval as follows: 28-hole semi-circle piece > 12-hole piece > 12-hole piece > 28-hole semi-circle piece > 12-hole piece > 12-hole piece.

Insert one large contrast color peg anywhere along loom set-up to mark beginning of round, skip one hole, then insert a large peg into the next hole.

Continue placing large pegs into every other hole along each 28-hole semi-circle piece and each 12-hole piece - 52 working pegs placed.

Follow loom manual instructions for SINGLE KNITTING for how to cast on, knit, purl, and bind off in the gathered method.

Beginning at contrast color peg, and using one strand each of A and B held together, cast onto all pegs.
Round 1: Knit.
Round 2: Purl.
Repeat Rounds 1 and 2 until you have completed 70 rounds.

Bind off in the gathered method.

Pull yarn ends to gather top of Hat.

Knot to secure.

Thread yarn ends into yarn needle provided with loom and weave ends into the fabric of the Hat.
