Loom Knit Along | Bakers Boy Cap (Right Handed)

– [Kristen] Throwback a
classic Bakers Boy Cap with a trendy twist. This Bakers Boy Cap
features a soft short brim with a bobble accent
to mimic a strap. The sides and back of the
brim are ribbed vertically, while the horizontal
bands feature a series of eyelets in a unique
textured lacy look. The top even has a
double decrease to
keep it nice and flat. This pattern and video are
brought to you by KB Looms. Let’s knit along the
entire pattern today here on GoodKnit Kisses. (upbeat piano) Welcome to GoodKnit Kisses. We’re all about helping
you stitch your love and love your stitches. This is a new
pattern from myself, Kristen Mangus at
GoodKnit Kisses, and I’m thankful for
partnering with KB Looms to bring you this
free pattern today. This can be found on our blog, so click down in the link in the description
below to get your copy. You’ll also need
your loom and yarn, and we’ll get right into that. Be sure and grab two
stitch markers as well. Alright, let’s find out what
looms and yarns you need, and we will start this
knit along together. We’re gonna work from
the visor all the way to the crown in
this tutorial today. This pattern features
two of the looms found in KB Looms round loom set,
the large gauge with 5/8 gauge. We’re using the 48 peg
loom and the 24 peg loom. Thank you so much to KB Looms. For yarn, you’re going
to need a super bulky number six weight
yarn, about 87 yards. Today’s yarn is
provided by Premier. This is Everyday Bulky
in color turquoise. We used about one ball. Thank you so much to Premier. Click down in the link in the description
below to get yours. We’re going to begin by
working our visor first with a chain cast on, and we need to set aside our
24 peg loom and our loom hook. And we do need a crochet hook. You can use your
fingers or a hook. I’m using a US L or 8 mm hook, and I’m gonna go ahead
and use my stitch markers just to show where the first
16 pegs are we’re gonna use. It doesn’t matter where
on the loom they fall, and I’m just marking them. I’ve already kinda pre-measured
out where these are, or counted them, and we’re going to start
by making a slip knot. Of course, go ahead
and chain cast on if you’ve done that
already before, and I’m gonna show you
know if you haven’t. Go ahead and put
your hook in there and make sure to have
it a little bit loose. You don’t need it
very tight for this. We’re gonna go to the inside
of the loom and pick it up and put your working
yarn in between two pegs. It’s gonna be in the outside
of where that stitch marker is, and we’re gonna go around it, so in between the next
two pegs and yarn over, and then we’re gonna
pull on through through that chain there. And see how I’m actually holding
on to the tail back here? Or you can hold it back
here, and then that way it doesn’t swing around
on you to the other side. So you’re just gonna continue
going on to the next peg and yarn over and pull through
those loops on the back. So you get two loops back
here and one in the front. And actually now that
I’ve already put that on, I’m gonna take this
stitch marker off so I don’t confuse myself, ’cause I actually
need that later. Just keep going until you
get all 16 stitches cast on. And when you get to the one
with this stitch marker, you’re just going to take the
stitch marker off and place that loop on there, just
the single loop on there. So I am going fast, but
I want to let you know. You just need to pause
your video as you need and slow it down if you need. Use the controls
to your advantage. Fast-forward, rewind,
whatever you need to do for your own pace, ’cause I am gonna go
through all the techniques in this video. So let’s continue going,
and I’ve got one more to do. Okay. And then I’m gonna
place it before I do. Just take this stitch
marker off and set it aside, and then we’re just gonna
place it right there, and you’re ready for row one. The beginning of most of
the rows on our flat panel is going to be
slipped or skipped. So we’re going to ignore
this first stitch here, the first peg, and our knit row is going
to be Ewrap in this pattern. So we’re just going to Ewrap
around these 15 stitches, and knit those over. Pause your video, I’ll meet
you back up for row two. See you in a moment. Row two, we’re
going to be working in a flat panel in the
opposite direction purling, and you’re going to
slip the first stitch, but you’re going to begin
your purl row with in Ewrap and end it with an Ewrap. So the second peg and
the 16th peg are Ewraps, so just go ahead and
wrap that around now. And to purl, you’re just
gonna put the working yarn below that loop on the
peg, and scoop up a loop, and take it off, and put
it on, and cinch that up. We’re gonna go to the next
one and scoop up the next one, take it off and put it on,
and that is the purl stitch. So continue doing that,
and the last loop, be sure and Ewrap it. Pause your video, and I will
meet you up for the third row, which is our increase row. See you soon. I’m finishing row two and
Ewrap that last stitch and knit over this
Ewrap down here. And now we’re gonna
move to row three, which has a beginning start
of a HH, or half hitch. So instead of ignoring this
first one and slipping, we’re actually gonna work
in the opposite direction just for a moment. This is a thumb cast
on, the half hitch, so you actually pull
your yarn out here, and you’re going to twist
it around with your thumb and make the working
yarn come down below, instead of an Ewrap where the
working yarn comes out above. And so we just cinch
it up and pull on it so it’s like an upside
down Ewrap stitch. And now you can go on to
the remainder of your row in the opposite direction here, so the same way you would
have been working, of course. You’re going to Ewrap
these remaining stitches all the way down. Okay, so until you get
to the very last one. And this is going
to add two stitches onto this particular row by making another half
hitch on the end here. So we’re just
gonna take our yarn and flip it to be underneath. So if we were gonna
Ewrap, watch this. So if we Ewrapped,
we went like this, and the yarn is
coming out the top. But if we wanna flip it, we just do this and
turn it upside down. See that? And so it can be locked
in position like that. Alright, so then you’re
just going to knit over, work these stitches
here for this row. Pause your video, and I’ll meet you back
up for the next row. See you soon. Alright, row four
is another purl row, and it’s worked
exactly like row two where you slip the first
stitch, Ewrap the next, and then purl until
one stitch remains, and then you Ewrap that one. So as you’ve noticed,
you have an odd row that has an Ewrap with two half
hitch increases on the ends, followed by a purl row. So you’re gonna continue
alternating these two rows until you get to
the end of row 10, which is another purl,
another purl row. So I’ll meet you back
at the end of row 10 on this side over here. Pause your video, and
I’ll see you soon. I’m actually finishing
two rows at the same time back to where I said
that I would meet you, but I wanna show you
this quick knit solution for doing two rows at once. If you wrap your Ewrap row first and then you knit
off a few stitches, you can then begin your
return for the purl row. So I Ewrapped this stitch here, and then I went on
to my purl stitch, and I’m gonna
continue on purling, and then I’ll lift over a
few of these Ewrap stitches and continue purling. So anyway, I just wanted
to give you that little tip if you’ve never
seen that before. Pause your video, and I will meet you of
course at the end of row 10. See you soon. Alright, so we’ve finished
increasing our visor. This is what it’s going to look
like on the right side here. We’ve got this tail, we’ll
work that in in a few minutes. We want to connect in the round and then reinforce this
brim to begin the hat. It makes it stick
out this direction. Okay? So we’re gonna pick
up our crochet hook, and we’re going to lift
up this last stitch here and just hold it and
take your stitch marker and place it on that peg
that you just took it off of. Okay? So this is after you’ve
made that Ewrap stitch on your previous
round or row 12. So now that we’ve
placed our marker here, this is now peg one. And so we’re gonna use this
loop here and chain cast on from peg one all the
way around the loom. Okay? So we’re going to
continue going. So this is peg one here. Alright? And now we’re going through
two and three and four and just continue. And when we get to peg 25, pause your video
and meet me back up. We’ll be on the other side here. Alright, see you in one moment. Alright, so I’ve
finished to peg 25. I’m at peg 26, and now we’re
going to continue again, and you will, yes, in fact
have two loops on that peg, and you’re going
to continue around until you get to peg one. And then you’ll put
that extra loop on top of the one with the
stitch marker over here. This is peg one. So continue going around
and pause your video. I’ll meet you soon. Okay, so after you
have got double loops on half of these pegs really, you’re going to be lifting
them up and over to knit off. And that’s all we’re
doing for this step before we move on to
the hat brim and body. And I like to, when I’m
making these visor hats, it’s kinda nice to go ahead
and finish off my brim and not leave this
dangling yarn tail here. So after you finish
knitting this off, I’m gonna show you how
to weave in that tail, and then you’ll know
how to also weave in in garter stitch and hide that. So pause your video, meet
me back up for weaving in the tail, and we’ll move on
to the remainder of our hat. Pause your video, and
I will see you soon. Alright, so you can see I’ve
already got my needle in here, and I’m just showing it
with this orange needle so you can really
see my stitches. I’ve got my yarn tail
threaded through my needle, and then I wanna take this
tail up through the back of my stitches until I can reach
kind of halfway up in here, but at least an inch in or so. And then I’m leading my, I’m leading this
needle all the way up ’til I see this little
rounded part right here. This is going up and
around and then down. I’m actually going to go around, I’m gonna call this a
little umbrella here, this little part right here. And then I’m actually going
to pull it up all the way and then lead it back
down and underneath kinda this little
smile area here. So it’s gonna smile, and then we’re gonna go back
up and go around and down, kind of like if you’ve ever seen that old fashioned
candy that does that. So I just wanted you to see that I’m weaving
it right up here, and I kinda guide that in, and then it’ll guide in
that slip knot there. If you need to tighten the
slip knot before you start, you can do that. And don’t pull it too tight
so that it cinches it in too much, ’cause you still
want this nice neat edge here. So now what I’m doing
is I’m just following around this little
umbrella, so to spoke, just ’cause it’s got that shape. So we’re gonna go
around that, okay, and then down through this
bump here, okay, down here, and we’re gonna go around
this little shape here. So gonna go down through
these stitches, okay, so it follows that
stitch around, and then we’re gonna go
around this little smile part up here and then back up
through, zigzagging back, so we can go around that
little umbrella again. So that’s it. It’s kinda fun to do this
in a knit time with friends when you maybe you got something that you normally
concentrate a lot on. You can use this time
to weave in your tails to something a little
more complicated that you hate doing by yourself. So anyway, it’s kinda fun to
do your yarn tails that way. So anyway, once you’ve
got several stitches in, then you can just go
ahead and cut your yarn. I’m going to cut this
tail up, kind of up here, and so that little
part that might get cut will hide further
up into the brim. Just cut that. And so that tail is
nice and well-hidden. And now you can complete
the remainder of your hat. Okay, so we are moving on
to the hat brim and body, and I am going to be
working in this direction. If you’re seeing this
on the right hand video, I’m going in the
clockwise direction. And on the left handed video,
you’re gonna be seeing it go in the counter
clockwise direction. Okay, so gonna go
this direction here, and we’re gonna begin by
Ewrapping one and purling one. Okay? So we’re gonna Ewrap
one and purl one beginning on peg one which
has this stitch marker here. Okay? So we’re gonna do that
until we get to peg 27, and we’re gonna place a marker, and then we’re gonna purl
for the remainder of the row. So we’re making a ribbed
section starting here and working all the way around
until you get to this point. And then we are going to
purl all of these stitches. So that’s how the pattern reads. So go ahead and do that now. When you get to the, when
you get to the peg for 27, this is where you’ll use
your second stitch marker, and you’ll place that. Pause your video, I’ll meet
you at the end of round one, which is what we’re
gonna complete now. See you soon. Alright, so I purled my last
stitch, and just to remind you, you’ve got your stitch
marker at peg 27, which is where we started
all of our purling. And now we’re going to be on
an Ewrap row for the brim. Now when I say Ewrap row, I
mean the Ewrap is actually going to be in the front
of this visor area, and the back part is going
to be the one by one ribbing. So you’re gonna
continue with knit one, so that’s that Ewrap. So I’m gonna go ahead and knit
off my stitch and then Ewrap. So it actually tells me
which one is an Ewrap and which is a purl, because
I didn’t knit that off before. So I’ve gotta Ewrap
one and purl one. And then when I get over
to my stitch marker, I’m going to continue by
Ewrapping the remainder of those pegs. Pause your video, and I will meet you
back up for round three. All even rows for the next
three times we do the even rows are all going to be the same. So I’m just gonna go over
with you on the odd rows. I’ll see you at round
three for making bobbles. See you soon. Alright, so I am on the
start of round three, and I’ve done my Ewrap
row previous to that. We are going to knit one purl
one or Ewrap one purl one all the way until this stitch
marker over on the other side. And this is where we’re
going to make our bobbles. So go ahead and work your
way all the way from peg one to peg 27 where that
stitch marker is, and we will make the
first bobble together. See you soon. Alright, so we’re
going to make a bobble, and I want to go over what this
looks like on your pattern, because I’m gonna show you the
bobble and show you a trick how to make a row go
a little bit faster, and you can see it easier. But I’m gonna explain
what it looks like here. So this is the start of
what I’m calling a band. It looks like an
accent or something. Okay, so your peg
27 is right here. You’re actually going to be
Ewrapping this stitch first on this round, and
then you make a bobble, and then you Ewrap
and make a bobble. And every so, every other
one is making a bobble. And then you quit by the time
you reach around to peg one. So it’s just where
this visor is. Then we will work an Ewrap
row where the front part is Ewrapped just
like we did before, and then we’ll make bobbles,
but we’re shifting it over. And then the first stitch here on this peg 27 is
making a bobble. So you’ll know everything you
need to know from round three, and round four you already know, because it’s just
like round two. So let’s make a bobble. I’m gonna teach you
how to make this row a little bit quicker, and
you can see it easier. Okay, so we’re gonna begin by
working this stitch over here. That’s from that previous round, and I’m gonna get these
stitches all knit over. Okay? And then you are going to start
by Ewrapping your first peg, okay, to get it set up. And again, if you’re
using this part again for two rounds away,
which is round five, you’re going to be
putting the bobble first instead of second. So now that I’ve got
this peg Ewrapped, I’m gonna go over here, and
I’m gonna make a bobble here. So I’m going to Ewrap
this one and knit it over and do it five times in a row, and it’s gonna make a long
little panel in the back. So before I do that, I’m
gonna turn this over, and I wanna show you
what this row looks like before we do it
around, we do it. You see this stitch
right behind here? Okay. Right here is the
previous round, okay? This is what we’re gonna
be picking up later on. So you need to identify
what this little purl bump looks like on this side. It was actually a
knit stitch before, but on the back,
it’s a purl bump. So now that you can
identify what it is, let’s begin making our bobble. So we’re going to Ewrap
and knit over one. Wrap it, knit over two, three, four, and five. By the time I get down to five, you can see I’m having
to push it down, ’cause it’s just collecting a
lot of yarn here in the back. So you have this
extra amount of yarn. And so what we normally
do for one bobble is you’re gonna go back here, and you’re going to lift
up that little stitch that we were
messing with before, and it gets picked up and
put back onto the loom, and then you knit
it, lift up and over, and that’s making one bobble. However, I have discovered
if you’ll go ahead and Ewrap this peg and then go
ahead and make a bobble here before lifting up and over and do all of your
bobbles on the row, then you can come back through and lift up and over
a little easier, and you can actually just
lift over, put it there, lift over, put it there,
lift over, put it there, and then come back through and then knit over your
stitches and lock them in. So I’m gonna go ahead
and do that now. I’ll do another bobble with you. So Ewrap, knit over one, two, three, four, five, okay. I’m gonna Ewrap the next stitch, make bobble on the next one. One, the first one’s
a little tight, two, three, four, and five. Okay. And I’m not gonna go
on to the rest of this, but you can see
how this happens. So when you go to the back here, then you can see this stitch
kind of hanging out here, and then we can just
take it and pick it up. Make sure to grab
all the strands, and lift up and over
and put it on here and come down to the
next bobble down here. And you find that
strand, that purl bump, and you place it onto your peg and come down to this next one. You can pull back on your work if you’re not sure
which one it is. And I actually had already
locked that one in, so I don’t need to do that one. So now this bobbles have been
ready and then been made. So I can lift those up and over. And if you see your work is kind of falling
to the back here, you can just tuck it back in, and the bobble will poke out
the other side, I promise. So they’ll all start looking
like this after you have knit several rows down,
and you can see ’em. So continue making your bobble
and Ewrapping in between, and I will meet you back
at the end of this section. This is a hat brim and body, and we will meet back
up at round eight. Pause the video, and
I’ll see you soon. I just wanna show you
what this looks like after completing a round
three and then a round four. You can see the bobble
is sticking out, and then we do have that
Ewrap round right behind it. So don’t forget round four
after you’ve made round three. So now when you move
on to round five, you’re gonna be shifting
those bobble stitches over for this offset look. So continue in pattern. Pause your video, and I will meet you
back up and round eight. See you soon. Alright, so we’re
ready for round eight. You should have three rounds
of bobbles that appear. Of course they’ve got the
Ewrap rows in between. And go ahead and knit over all
of the leftover Ewrap knits from the ribbed
part of the brim. And then so round eight, all you’re gonna be doing is
pushing your stitches down and Ewrapping all the way
around for your last row, and that completes,
or your last round, that completes this brim
and accent part here. And then we’ll move on
to the body of the hat. Pause your video when you’re
ready, and I’ll see you soon. The next five rounds
are going to make up one of these bands and then
the space in between. And we’re actually going to
make three of these bands. Now if you want to, you can add an extra length
for a more height on this band, say if you’ve got
really big hair, and you wanna make it kinda
more of a stove top type hat. I don’t have that in
the pattern, but you
can repeat those. So starting at round
nine, 10, 11, 12, 13, that is the beginning
of the five sets, and then they’ll be repeated
in the sequential rounds after. So round nine, you’re going
to make it a purl row, but you can set it up for
the next row by doing this. So you’re going to purl one,
okay, and then purl the second, and then put it on
the purl before. So you leave this
peg empty here. Then move on to the next
one, just skipping this peg. Purl one, and then
purl the next one, and then place it
on that peg before, and so you’re just
stacking them. The round after, we’re going
to be purling two together. It doesn’t matter that
they’re leaning right or leaning left, it’s just that we’re putting
the two purls together. So continue on purling
this entire row and stacking two on
top of each other. Pause your video, and I’ll
see you when you’re ready. Alright, we’re gonna cover
rounds 10 through 13 here. So round 10, this is actually
our decrease and increase row. It remains the same stitch
count, but what happens is, first of all, you’re
gonna skip this stitch right before your peg here. So go in the back of that, and you’re gonna work these
two stitches together, purling them. So we’re going to purl
two together, okay, and then on that empty peg,
we’re going to yarn over. This is an Ewrap yarn over. So just wrap around and
yarn over and then move on. You repeat that where
you purl two together, and then yarn over. Okay? You’re just gonna continue
that throughout the round, and then on rounds
11 through 13, so that’s the next three rounds, you’re going to do an Ewrap. Okay? So do three Ewrap rounds
after you do this one. And then you will repeat
that sequence two more times. So you’ll follow
your written pattern. Be sure, and if you
haven’t gotten it yet, you gotta go get that pattern. Click on the link in
the description below, and you’ll finish out all the
way ’til the end of round 23. I’ll meet you back for round 24. Pause your video, and I
will see you at that time. See you soon. We are at round 24, and you’re gonna want
to purl all 48 stitches. And once you complete
the round of purl, we’re actually going to do a
row of regular knit stitches. So no more Ewrap
from here on out. We’re actually going to,
either you can do a Uwrap knit, where it goes around
the peg entirely, and it makes kind
of a U formation, and then we lift up and over, and then pull on your
working yarn a little bit to make it a little bit loose so that you’re not
pulling too tight when you go to the next
one and do the same thing. If you usually Uwrap knit
too tight and you know that, you can do a reverse purl
or traditional knit stitch where you put the yarn,
working yarn above the loop, so opposite like when
you’re in a purl, and then you pull a
new loop downward, and then take that
off and put it on, and that helps you remain
maintain a nice tension here without having too tight. So continue around. You’re going to do a purl
row and a standard knit row. Alright, pause your video, and I’ll see you then at the
end to work on the crown. See you soon. So we’re gonna
divide our peg count for the crown into
eight quadrants. So imagine a piece of pizza, and we’re just cutting
it up several times to eight sections, and it’s going to be six
pegs in each section. So an easy way to do that is to take some stitch
markers or rubber bands, or you can just kind of remember where it is when you
just count every time. So we’re going to count off
one, two, three, four, five, six and then that’s
the first section, and then the next
section starts. So I’m gonna put on a few
pegs, these right here, just to show you what
I’m talking about. So peg one here and then
two, three, four, five, six, and then we go to
the seventh peg, which begins our next one peg, and then we move down and
we mark our loom here. One two, three, four,
five, six, and then seven. So you continue
marking your loom, and pause your video and meet
me back up when you’re ready, and we’ll start moving some
stitches over for this crown. For the crown round one, we’re going to take
the number two peg and put it on top
of the one peg, and we’ll do that in each
section all the way around. So you grab the second
peg in and move it over to the one with the
stitch marker on it and just continue going all
the way around your loom. And then once you’ve done
that for all of them, then you’ll start working the
stitches just like you did before with a Uwrap knit, but
the ones that have two pegs, you’re gonna lift two over one
to have one loop remaining. And then if you’ve
got an empty peg, you’re just gonna go behind
that with your working yarn and go on to the next one, and you’re going
to Uwrap knit that. Okay, so knit that,
and then continue on. So go to all pegs that have
wraps on them and work them over leaving the working
yarn in the back slipping this empty peg. Alright, pause your video, and I’ll meet you back up when
you’re ready for round two. See you soon. Okay, so we have come
to the end of round one. We’re now on round two, and we’re going to take the
fourth peg in your section and put it on top
of the third peg. And then you’re just going to
repeat that in each section and then knit that entire row
just as you did round one, skipping all of the empty pegs. Alright, so continue to do
that, and pause your video, and I will meet you back
in a moment on round three. See you soon. Alright, so we are going
to go on to the next part where we are moving
the six peg over to the five in our section. So same as before, just
lifting that peg up and putting it over
onto the other peg, and then working a
knit round there. So go ahead and do that. Pause your video, and
I’ll see you soon. I wanna interrupt
with a little tip. If you find that moving
your last five pegs or six peg over to
five, if it’s too tight, and you could’ve done this
on the other rounds too, if it’s too tight to move,
you can actually work that stitch that you’re
gonna move first, so go ahead and actually
lift up and over and then place that on the
peg that you were going to move it to, and
then lift up and over. And so the stitch is
actually worked the same way. It’s just that it
gives it a little bit of relief on this peg here. Alright, continue working,
and we’ll see you in a moment. Alright, so we are ready to
actually do our second decrease, and we’re gonna be
moving all the stitches over to this 24 peg loom. So you have now reduced
from 48 pegs to 24, and we want to grab
some scrap yarn, just a nice contrasting
yarn that’s smooth. It’s not gonna be
grabbing on you. Usually an acrylic will
work really well for this. And you want to go
into your first stitch and pull through your yarn, and then you go all the
way around your loom pulling the yarn up and through just consistently the same way
with each stitch so that you know how to place them right
back onto the next loom. So go ahead and do that
and then take it off, and then we’ll be placing
it onto this loom here. Alright, pause your video,
and I’ll see you soon. Alright, so I’m gonna put my hat on the inside of this loom here, and I’m doing this direction, because I’ve got my working
yarn coming out here. Otherwise, I could bring
it the opposite way. I would have to just work that
yarn up through the middle, the remaining ball. So just lay it gently in here, and it’s going to
be obviously bigger than what will fit inside here. But you wanna lay these
live stitches up next to the pegs and
find your first one. And I’ve got one here. I’m just gonna take my yarn and pull the loop
out a little bit and just lay it right
on one of these pegs. Okay, and then just
pull that yarn out. So I’m working with
the tail side here. Grab the next one and pull on it and just pop it right
on and pull it out, and then just continue going
all the way around the loom. So it doesn’t matter where
you’re putting it on here, just start somewhere
and continue. Just make sure it’s towards
the end of where one of your scraps are so
you don’t pull it out. And then after you continue
going around the loom, these loops are going
to be a bit loose, so we can start kinda pulling
on the slack from those, and you’ll actually
work out a little bit of this looseness here. So pause your video
and pull up the slack after you take these
off the scrap yarn and put ’em on the pegs, and
I’ll see you in a moment. So I pulled out all the
slack, and you can see, this is actually how
much extra I had. So I’m just gonna pull
out this last stitch. And because the working
yarn is coming from here, you know that the next stitch is the one that’s the beginning. So go ahead and mark that, and you can actually
divide this loom into four sections of six now. So go ahead and mark your
peg with the stitch markers and count out to six. One two three four five six. And then pick this one up and then put your
stitch marker on. So you can just take it
from that other loom, place it, and you’re ready. So go ahead and do one
more round of Uknit, and just don’t
decrease just yet. So we’re gonna do
one more round, and we’ll meet you back up
when you’re done with that. See you soon. Okay, so we’re ready to start dividing our loom again
with moving stitches. So you’re going to repeat
as you’ve done before. We’re going to move
the two over to the one on all the sections and
then do a round of knits, skipping the empty pegs. So you’re going to complete
that then do another moving round from the four
to the three, knit that, then go from a six to the
five and knit that round. And then you’ll knit
one more round again. So this is written all
in your instructions, and so you got four more rounds. Then you’re gonna have three
decrease rounds in a row, and then one more
where you’re just knitting all the pegs that
have stitches on them. Alright, pause your video, and I will see you when
you get to that point. See you soon. To finish this off,
you’re just going to wrap around the loom one time
and go ahead and cut. And then you’re going
to work in this tail through all of the stitches. I just continue in the direction
that you’ve already been. So this is your last peg here, and so you’re gonna want
to go through and go up, threading it through. You can use a needle, but I think it’s easier
just to use your pick here. Alright, so go all
the way around, and we’re gonna pull that off
and close the top together. Pause your video, and
I’ll see you soon. Alright, so we’re just
gonna pull this closed. I did go back through
this last stitch twice, and that way I could
close these up. And we’re gonna go ahead
and just pull on our yarn, and it’s gonna close
this up nice and tight. And before you get
all the way there, just go ahead and work
this yarn into the center, and just turn it inside out. And then you can just finish
closing it from there. I like to check it
before I’m done. Just hold it here and
look at the other side. And then look how
pretty that closes up. Isn’t that nice? It’s nice and flat. You have these nice
decreases here. And I actually wanna show you, if you noticed on
my other sample, it’s a little more
bit more open. I actually did use Ewrap
on this one so you can see how using the U knit
wrap or U knit stitch is actually gonna look a
little bit flatter here. Alright, so you’re
just gonna continue by weaving in the
end of this tail. Alright, just go
through these stitches. One more time. Alright, and then go
through one last loop here and make a loop on the end and
then go through that again. Alright, and then you
can now safely cut that, and then this tail would
just be tucked on the inside. And because you
already wove this in from the beginning here, it’s already done
and ready to wear. Tada. (giggles) I hope you enjoyed making
your bakers boy cap. I know that I already
enjoy using it. It is already fall here,
and I am wearing it already. So I do wanna point out that
this yarn is anti-pilling. It’s a special patented
one from Premier Everyday. So it’s not going to
rub and fuzz out on you, and it’s perfect to
use with these looms. Thank you again to KB Looms

  1. Hi Kristen: I have just purchased the looms waiting for them to arrive. Yes I would love more patterns for these looms. Very interesting lesson and fairly easy to understand.

  2. Can you do this pattern using a medium worsted weight yarn? I love hats with brims and also I have a friend who does too. This pattern is the first one for the loom that I found. I haven't seen any before! Thank You so much for sharing this! 💙

  3. I have 2 questions. First one is can I use my cinderwood loom 48 pegs w/ 5/8 gauge to make this hat. The second question: Are the pegs on the KB looms like normal or are they like those nasty Boye ones. I hate the Boye looms because of the nasty catch under each peg. I started following along with you on my cinderwood loom using one strand just like we're doing. By the time I had 6 rows, it looks like I barely did 2 rows while yours look like you had done 8 rows. So, what is the difference? I was using a bulky weight 6.

  4. Is it possible to make this with the knifty knitter 41 peg loom? If so, do I need to make adjustments to the pattern?
