I agree that sewing on the eyes etc is much easier.

Great, thanks Maureen.  I have been given some wonderful yarn called Snuggle Snowflake and I am just dying to make some simple teddies from it - this pattern will be perfect.

Hello Mo
I see that you are looking for a Slip-over (under ) pattern and I wondered if you had seen this one that Jen posted. I made one that was very similar and they are very easy to make. If you need more instructions I'll try and talk you through but basically it's a soft vest shape and nothing very complicated.

Hi Mo. So pleased that your hat looms worked out for you. I do always say that they are so easy to use. i look forward to seeing some of your results if you are able to put pictures onto the forum some time.
Best wishes.

Hi Maureen. I never use DK for my loom hats. I just don't think it works up too well. I save all my thicker yarns from donations or bargain bins for my hats. Arran, chunky and that sort of thing. PoundStretcher does 400g balls of self patterning arran or 500g balls of plain. That should make quite a few hats and only costs £5. I don't work from any pattern. I do a loop ahbout 6 inches from the end of the yarn (same as for knitting) and loop that over one of my loom pins. I then loop the double thickness round each pin til the tail is used up and just continue. I go round the loom 3 times then take the bottom loop over the pin. I wrap round the loom once again to give me 3 loops again and once more go round taking the bottom loop over. I feel that 3 rounds gives a much better hat than 2 rounds which some instructions suggest.
As for patterns - well I change yarn when I have run out of a bit or get bored, or more unusually, actually make a planned pattern. I tie a small tight knot in the yarns and make sure I put it to the inside. I never bother if I change at the end of a round or the middle. I hate wasting even a few inches of yarn so I just get the best out of it that I can. I make the second largest hat loom to about 9 inches long and finish it with neat stitches or a twisted yarn loop or a pompom or whatever I am in the mood for. They are so easy to make and anything goes. Good luck.

Hello Maureen, welcome to the UK group. I see that you were asking for patterns for hats/beanies and there are one or two on the site, although you can make any warm hat suitabl for 2-6 year olds for the current challenge.
There is a simple hat pattern under the KAS main page
or if you scroll down the forum categories you will come to some hat patterns there. If you glance through the photos you will also see examples of simple hats that have been made and their makers will be happy to tell you how if you need them to. I expect that people will also make other suggestions - they're a very helpful lot.

Welcome Maureen. So glad you've found Knit-a-square.

There is a UK group if you'd care to join:

If you have any questions, just ask.


The Donate button provides 2 options:

  1. One time donation
  2. Monthly subscription               [click the box]

Because of PayPal/banking fees, KAS asks that your donation be 5USD [or more].  Anything less, means your donation is eaten up with fees.  Thank you!


Our goal is to remove the monthly deficit that Ronda and her team have to deal with. You can:

1. Make a donation whenever you are able.

2. Sign up for an ongoing monthly donation (subscription).

3. Shop at the KasShop!

Please follow this discussion for monthly updates, current financial reports and ideas on what we can all do to help. Click link :

"CreateCare Global has set itself two tasks. The first is physical: to bring hope, support and comfort to children for whom poverty and loss are everyday tormentors. The second, and in our view equally important, is to spread the message to the world."
