Loom Knit: Earflaps

Loom Knit Earflaps for Hat

Kristen talks you through making earflaps on the 24 peg KK or Knifty Knitter Loom. This is not a step by step shown tutorial. Please read instructions carefully and watch the video to see the result.

Using Super Bulky 6 Lion Brand Hometown USA, she starts with a two peg icord to 12″. Increase by two on left and right sides on a purl row. End all purl rows with last stitch in ewrap or EW. Add an EW row. Then purl 1 row and EW another row. Now increase by two on either side on the purl row. You’ll be making a triangle. Increase on every other purl row till you get 8 pegs with loops (the first stitch is always slipped or SS). Cut off your tail after 7 garter rows and add earflap on other side. When done start your baby hat. After casting off add pom pins to ends and weave in 1 earflap tail to inside of a garter ridge row.

Have fun and Happy Looming!! -Kristen

    This is such a clever idea – thanks so much for the video showing how you did it. I would think that you could then remove the flaps from the blue loom and put them on say the green one if you wanted a larger hat? LOL – Or I guess you could just make them right on the green loom.
    Anyhow – thanks again
    Cheers, Karen
