What started as a plan to make scarves turned to lovely ear warmer headbands. I just used the garter stitch on the round loom, and on only 12 pegs. I used Michael’s Opus yarn which was on sale at the time, and the length of the yarn (42 yards) was perfect for this project.
Found another great video tutorial for the round loom, a winter hat with ear flaps. I’ve seen a couple of tutorials but none as complete as this and precise. However, I used the 36-peg round loom for my hat, so it’s a mighty bit tight for my head. I recommend following the actual size of the round loom used in the tutorial, or possibly use the e-wrap method rather than the knit (or flat knit) method used in the video.
Here’s the video:
And here’s my finished product:
Winter Hat with Ear Flaps
Long time no see. I have been busy. Since it’s getting cold once again, I decided to make scarves for my daughters. Looked from tutorials on YouTube, of course, and they were simple enough to follow. I still can’t avoid trial and error, though. I’m glad they both turned out pretty well. :)
Made this hat for a coworker. Similar pattern from my previous post. :)
Random hat I made. I was trying to get rid of the yarn I had left. I didn’t follow any pattern, just by memory. Started with a garter stitch, then knit, some purls and knits, knit again, knits and purls, then knit at the end. All in all, not a bad combo. I gave it to a coworker. :)
Hat for a co-worker. Took me one and a half hour to make, roughly. Made it with just the simple knit stitch. 35 rows.
Hats for my great nephews. Simple knit for the body and garter stitch for the brims. 32 rows.
