We’re going to triple up the yarn to make it extra chunky! Watch our tutorial here.
With the slip knot made by the thickening of our yarn, attach the yarn to the anchor peg.
Round 1: EW your loom in a clockwise direction.
Round 2: EW the loom clockwise again and YO.
Round 3: For this round, you’re going to alternate every peg between K and P. This is where you’ll use those stitch markers to mark what is a K peg and what is a P peg. Since this loom has an uneven amount of pegs, I end each round with two P.
Round 4-10: Keep alternating between K and Pl for each peg.
Round 11: EW clockwise and YO
Round 12-14: EW clockwise and YO
Round 15: P each peg
Round 16-35: Repeat rounds 12-15. That’s 3 rounds of EW and YO and one round of P.
Round 36-37: K all pegs
Wrap your working yarn around the loom 2 times and cut. Using your needle, insert the working yarn from the bottom of the loop and pull up. Do this to all pegs. Once the working yarn has been woven up through all the pegs, remove the yarn from the pegs.
While holding the working yarn, turn your beanie inside out. Cinch the beanie up by pulling tightly on the working yarn. Knot the working yarn at the cinch and cut. Weave in any ends. Turn your beanie outside in and weave in any ends.
