Designed by Amanda Pratt
This pattern works in both single knit and double knit on the ‘Rotating’ Double Knit Loom. Single knit, using outer loom only for the brim, then switching to double knit for the body of the hat. What a great idea Amanda!
Note: Amanda’s Honeycomb Stitch uses the rib stitch, wrapping in a figure 8 method, which is different from rib stitch taught by KB. Work with manner you feel most comfortable. Rib stitch video of both methods are included. The stitch pattern used in the pattern is also known as ‘Honeycomb’.
