A place to share...

It has been a few years since we all began this wonderful KnitWit journey and we are all thankful that God has taken us along on the trip!!!
This blog has been started so we can share ideas and encouragement in this craft. Loom Knitting is seeing its resurgence in popularity. And for those who are new to this, pattern reading can seem a daunting task. We have all learned so much from each others' unique designs...

So, please chime in!

Ski Mask Hats

Easy & Quick Ski Mask 

This pattern is for an adult size loom:

  • Wrap and knit 10 rows, then fold over to make a thin brim.
  • Continue wrapping until you have about 9 inches of "hat".
  • From the first peg, 'apple berry' off 10 pegs. (to tie off, move or decrease posts. Lift post A (apple) and move post B (berry) over to post A. Then place post A back on top. Knit over. Decrease or tie off complete!)
  • Continue by wrapping and knitting 4 rows, back and forth, of the remaining pegs.
  • Purl the next row all the way around....leaving just one wrap on the 10 pegs that were bound off.
  •  Purl two more rows all the way around.
  • Finish off the hat with 6 inches of the top cap portion and take off as usual!
Update...after several requests, here's our video! Hope it helps :)
