Magic Loop Basic Brimmed Hat Tutorial and FREE Pattern

I'm a big fan of magic loop, so when Craftsy asked me to design a magic loop hat and tutorial, I was more than ready to share my obsession with knitters who are new to the technique.

I originally started using magic loop only for socks, but then I went crazy and started using it for things like two-at-a-time sweater sleeves and even mittens. Sometimes I still pull out my trusty 16" circulars, but magic loop makes things so much easier, especially for things like hats that require multiple needle sizes and different types of needles.


Pattern: Basic Ribbed Brim Hat designed by me (FREE!) plus Magic Loop Tutorial
Yarn: Cloudborn Superwash Highland Worsted in Charcoal Heather (hat) and Graphite Heather (pompom)


The free hat pattern and tutorial go together, but you can also use them individually. So for example, if you want to knit a hat pattern you already have in magic loop, you can just use the tutorial to get a general idea of how magic loop works with hats.

I've become a magic loop convert over the years, and I hope you'll give it a try. Let me know what you think!
