Learn to Loom Knit the Easy ZigZag Slouchy Beanie Hat
There a plenty of loom knitting videos teaching you how to use your loom to knit hats. I am adding this loom knitting video to LoomKnittingVideos.com because of how easy it is for a beginner to follow along with the video to complete a beanie that gives the loom knitter a good looking hat with the unique design of the zigzag.
The video is a product of Tuteate, one of best loom knitting tutorial makers you will find on the web. The Tuteate loom knitting videos are all well made. You will get excellent close-ups of the knitting being done each step of the way backed up with detailed but easy to follow on-screen instructions. The only thing you might miss in the Tuteate videos is verbal instructions. The verbal instructions are replaced with a musical background.
In this video what you will learn is how to use your 41 peg loom. You will also learn the following:
- How to cast on stitches on the loom – How to make the brim of the hat directly on the loom (no sewing)
- How to knit and purl
- How to work an easy zigzag pattern and how to work an easy spiral pattern
- How to close the hat
Don\’t worry if you don\’t have a 41 peg loom. Tuteate explains that you can use a 36 peg loom and adjust the pattern by work repeating \”Knit 3 – Purl 2\” for 10 rounds in one direction and \”Purl 2 – Knit 3\” for 10 rounds in the opposite direction
On a 40-peg loom (or looms with a number of pegs multiple of 3 + 1) work repeating \”E-wrap Knit 1, Purl 2\” for 6 rounds in one direction and then \”Purl 2, EWK 1\” for 6 rounds to the opposite direction.
On a 48 peg loom do , 4 knits and 3 purls and it should come out perfect.
Should you need more instructions you can find the PDF version of the pattern on ETSY following this link

Welcome to the loom knitting community.Thank you for visiting LoomKnittingVideos.com. There is not a true standard set of abbreviations in the loom knitting community but in this pattern what Tuteate is referring to when EWK is used in E-wrap(E) then Knit(k). As for PDK Purl(P) change directions(D) Knit(K). What you will find is that each loom knitter will use their own set of abbreviations with a pattern. The more you loom knit and see the stitches explained the easier the abbreviations will come to you. I hope this helps

Hello, when the directions say to continue for 8 rows, is that 8 rows total, or 8 additional rows to give 9 rows total? Thank you!
