help finishing a hat on a circular loom

I got the circular loom about a year ago, and I love it. I'm not sure where my directions went, so I have no idea how to finish the loom to tie the hat together. I am trying to finish a bunch of hats before Christmas. If you have any advice, that would be very helpful. Thanks

Finishing a Hat on a Circular Loom
by: Melinda

After finishing the last one over two row, now work the bottom yarn loop up over the peg, leaving only one loop on each peg. Take the working yarn off of the holding peg and measure a three-foot tail and cut. You will use this tail to take the remaining loops off of the pegs. Thread the tail onto a large plastic craft needle. Using a double thickness of tail, begin with peg # 1 and lift the yarn loop off of the peg and onto the needle. Continue this process all the way around the loom. When all the loops are on the tail turn the hat inside out and cinch the hat closed. Stitch across the closing a couple of times. Dividing the tail in half, tie a square knot and trim the excess.

Hope this helps!
