American Flag Loom Knit Hat Version 1


  • Standard Round Loom 31 Peg Loom - Most Good Crafting Stores and Huge Retailers will have these looms. They are usually provided in a standard package of 4 Size Looms.
  • 3 Colours of Yarn. Red, White & Blue. Ensure each colour is in the same family of brightness and colour tones. Yarn used was Bernat 4 Ply Worsted.

TIP: Due to the gauge (space between pegs). You need to wrap each row twice. You can either wrap two same colour yarns together at one time, or simple double wrap (going around the loom twice for each row). 1 Wrap or 1 String will produce poor results and a very loose look that is sloppy looking.

We are going to use the TWISTED KNIT STITCH  during this entire project. Numbers in front of each description represents rows. I divide the project into two. You are creating the brim in part 1, then body in part 2

Starting With The Brim Creation

  1. Cast On Using Eyelash yarn BLUE Yarn. E-WRAP every peg and circle the loom twice to complete 1 row of work, the KNIT. This doubles up the yarn producing store quality looks and texture.
  2. E-Wrap Again twice, and then knit.
  3. E-Wrap Again twice, and then knit.
  4. E-Wrap Again twice, and then knit.
  5. E-Wrap Again twice, and then knit.
  6. E-Wrap Again twice, and then knit.
  7. E-Wrap Again twice, and then knit.
  8. E-Wrap Again twice, and then knit.
  9. E-Wrap Again twice, and then knit. Then tie off BLUE yarn by tying a knot firmly but loose enough to knit with on the last peg used. You are using Frosty throughout project, do not tie that off.
  10. Tie on RED & WHITE YARN on the starting peg of the rotation. E-Wrap entire loom ONLY ONCE Frosty and Red Together. Then look at project, follow knitting line down from the peg, fold up and place the very bottom of the corresponding section onto the peg. At this time you will have 2 strings from the original BLUE on the peg, 2 strings from RED & WHITE, and then 2 strings (BLUE) from the bottom of the work due to the folding up. KNIT over the peg sending the RED & WHITE OVER FIRST, FOLLOWED BY THE BOTTOM 2 BLUES SECOND. This will leave on the legs the bottom sections that were placed onto the peg. IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU GO IN THE ORDER AS MENTIONED... if you change up the order, the brim seam will look different for each knitted peg.

The Body of The Hat

  1. Using WHITE ONLY, E-WRAP Loom Twice, Then Knit. Do not cut string or cast off Red. Be sure to check when wrapping that the string you are not using is sitting in a part of the pegs.
  2. Repeat above and then set the white off off the loom.
  3. Pick up RED, WRAP twice, then KNIT
  4. WRAP TWICE, THEN KNIT, set the red off to the side as you did with the white.
  6. WRAP TWICE, then knit, and let white off to the side.
  7. Pick up RED, WRAP TWICE, then knit.
  8. WRAP TWICE, then knit... and let red off to the side.
  9. Pick up WHITE THEN WRAP TWICE, then knit.
  10. WRAP TWICE, then knit, and let white off to the side. TIE off WHITE onto the last peg. you are done with white.
  11. Pick Up Red, Wrap Twice Then Knit
  12. Repeat
  13. Repeat,
  14. Cast Off Using Sewing Needle picking up each loop sliding the needle from the bottom of the peg up under the loop and sliding loop onto the string. Picking up all the loops as you go. Once all loops are picked up, loom will come free of project. pull string tight which causes the top of the hat to form. Sew shut with 3 really tight loops over the top of the hat... then slide needle through the top of the project. Turn hat inside out and tie string off.
