Double Knit Alternate Rib Hat | KB Looms

Double Knit Alternate Rib Hat | KB Looms

Do you guys remember how excited we all were to see the new looms from KB a couple months ago?  (If you missed the unboxing video I did for the new looms check them out HERE!)  KB went above and beyond our wildest dreams with the Rotating Double Knit Loom or, as it’s been affectionately named, the DKL.  You asked for videos to help you learn the ins and outs of this loom.  KB reached out to me and is sponsoring a series of videos to teach some of their new patterns and techniques.  Our first project together is the Double Knit Alternate Rib Hat.

This hat features a ribbed brim and the Alternate Rib stitch pattern in the body of the hat.  Not only does the double knit give you a wonderfully thick hat, but the amazing Preciosa Tonal yarn from Knit Picks keeps you extra toasty with its soft merino wool.  You’re sure to love not only the hat, but the experience you get working on this unique loom.

    I have the same question as Mary, the bottom of the hat comes out very tight, all that work & hat is uncomfortable. Please address this issue, thanks!

    Is there any other way to finish the bottom of the hat off.
    Mine comes out so very tight with no stretch
