My Reversible Hat


This is an attempt at an idea I have had for some time...to make a reversible hat. I used the long yellow loom and e-wrapped 45 rows of orange then tied on black and did another 45 rows. I pulled the end of the orange up through the gap of the loom to hook the last stitches onto the pegs (there does not leave much room). I then threaded the needle and removed the hat.
It was also a bit hard to pull the hole in the top closed and there is still about a 1" gap as having two thickness of knitting. If I were to do this again...I would use the yellow round loom as with the long loom the stitches are tighter and this would probably fit a child better. I can get it on but is super tight it feels like it is my skin :-)
I like the black with orange cuff the best.
