New Born Baby Clouds Hat 1 Colour Pattern By Michael Sellick

1)
   Using a 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. 

2)   Using 1 colour. Ensure each colour is in the same family of brightness and colour tones. Yarn used baby Clouds. Thick and plush. Only one wrap for each row is required due to thickness. This creates a hat a bit larger than a newborn size. Extremely soft and sharp looking. 

3)   This is very simple and easy. 

4)   Due to the gauge (space between pegs). You need to wrap each row once. 
Here is your written pattern. 

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 Baby Cloud yarn. E-WRAP every peg and circle the loom, then KNIT.
  2. Wrap, then knit.
  3. Wrap, then knit.
  4. Wrap, then knit.
  5. Wrap, then knit.
  6. Wrap, then knit.
  7. Wrap, then knit.
  8. Wrap, then knit.
  9. Wrap, then knit.
  10. E-Wrap entire loom ONLY ONCE. 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 1 string from the yarn at the bottom of the peg, 1 string from wrap that you just did, and then 1 string from the bottom of the work due to the folding up. KNIT over the peg sending the second down from the top of the peg OVER FIRST, FOLLOWED BY the bottom yarn SECOND. This will leave on the pegs 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 BABY CLOUDS, E-WRAP Loom, Then Knit.
  2. repeat
  3. repeat
  4. repeat
  5. repeat
  6. repeat
  7. repeat
  8. repeat
  9. repeat
  10. repeat
  11. repeat
  12. repeat
  13. 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.
OPTIONAL:
You could add flowers or something to the hat to give it your own styling.

   Thanks and hope you enjoyed this tutorial. This is super easy to teach a child or for your own fun.
