The secret to staying warm in our climate is to wear a hat. If my head is warm, I can sometimes forego my winter coat altogether and be outside in a heavy sweater or flannel.
I saw this pattern on You Tube over at Easy Me World. She has an easy-to-follow video that explains step by step the loom knitting process and the pattern for this hat.
41 peg round loom because I wanted it nice and loose fitting.
The yarn I used was Big Twist brand the 100% acrylic Chunky Yarn #271012 in colors:
Chunky Cloud White #12001
Chunky Dove #12003
In the video, she suggests using one skein of each color and pulling from the inside and the outside of the skein. I've tried this several times and I always end up knotting up the skein so I bought two of each color. If you can successfully use her technique, then 1 skein of each color will be plenty for this project.
36 peg loom and wrapped it around the front and back, then tied it in the same way she describes in the video.
