Trying to loom a hat

Hi,


I am from Slovenia, and I found knitting loom on web, so I don't know any one doing it here.

I started to watch youtube videos and leran a bit how to do it. I have finished my first hat... I was doing it like basic, where you just wrep around one after another, but I don't like it, because the holes in are to big, and I would like something more thightnet and warm for winter- what is the name of pattern that I should look for instructions on youtube or somewhere else? I also don't like that the hat on the end start to twisted?

I hope you understand me and you coul hepl me :)!

Thank you!

BR,
Ula

I am using normal circle knitting loom size Large-for adult hat. Is there any other way to do more decrease stiches than using two yarns (I saw that you can do a purlstich and other, but I don'know how it look when it is finished)?And on which pattern hat at the ends doesen't turn around?

Thank you!

Nice try NEW
by: Yanna

It is good that you tried something new. One thing you can easily do is to use 2 yarns at the same time. Instead of using one string use 2. Bulky yarns are good enough for looms. Can you please by more specified on what kind of loom and yarn are you using?
