Fallout hat for beginners
I'm just learning to number so it' not too pretty. The Vault 13 hat has a rib stitch brim. The body is just a knit stitch and the numbering is purled. I used wool/acrylic blend yarn. The 101 hat is all knit stitch and I pulled up the cast-on round to create a thick brim. I used acrylic blend yarn for that one. Both were made on a Martha Stewart loom with small pegs. I had to be careful to keep the yarn loose on each peg so the hats would fit my husband's giant head.
I used graph paper to plan the pattern while considering the number of pegs used.

  • Step 1

    Make a sample patch w/the numbering to find out how many stitches and rounds you need to create the size you want. Remember to knot enough rounds to gather the close the top.

  • Step 2

    E wrap cast on yellow yarn. Knit stitch 2x the desired length. Then pull the CO stitches up and place them back on the pegs. You should have 2 loops on each peg. Knit over each peg.

  • Step 3

    Add blue yarn and purl the 1st round of the body of the hat. The rest of the hat will be worked in knitch stitch.

  • Step 4

    Add yellow yarn to create numbers. Numbers will be worked as a fat panel inside the pattern. Be sure to twist blue and yellow yarn inside the loom when switching colors.

  • Step 5

    I used a gathered bind off to close the hat.
