Whoosh!

Double knit fabric provides an extra thick layer of warmth that is ideal for all-day ski trips, snowman building marathons and Antarctic excursions.

KB Looms’ Rotating Double Knit Loom makes a double knit hat so easy. This unique loom allows you to double loom knit in the round.

The Cranberry Brim Beanie pattern from KB Looms features a chunky ribbed brim in contrast to the muted stockinette stripes of the hat. The beauty of the pattern is how easy it is to loom knit.

Bernat Pop color changing yarn provides the pop of color that also makes stripes simple to add in. NOTE: This pattern separates the colors in the yarn and adds the stripes individually. You can also make the hat in a solid color with a contrast brim. Any #4 medium weight yarn will work look great with this hat pattern!

    I’ve had my rotating loom for a long, long time. This pattern is the one I’m using as my starting point. I love the look of the hat and am so grateful for this video! It feels like you’re right here guiding me along the way! Thanks for all you do!
