I made this hat on a loom using a repurposed t-shirt. It is only single stitched but nice and thick with a unique feel. I love the funky pom-pom also made of t-shirt.

about the looms NEW
by: June B.

Hello all,
I am doing great on the set of round looms. But I also purchased the sock loom (purple colour) narrow and adjustable for size. It seems that my hands are way to big to work this one properly. I paid around 28-30 dollars for it. Such a shame!! But I just can't handle it well at all and it would be quicker to knit the socks on three needles....for me any way.
the round looms are terrific...I have down a pile of hats, cowls, scarfs, and now ponchos. Leg warmers to match the ponchos.

any one have a trade of something for the purple sock loom?

T SHIRT SOURCE NEW
by: Anonymous

At one thrift store I've been to recently, they had a large bag of t-shirts for 99cents. This would be a great source for t-shirt fabric to knit with.

t-shirt yarn
by: Julie

Marsha, it is very easy to loom knit with this t-shirt material. Have fun. Hey, if you use white you can dye your finished products using unsweetened koolaid. The possibilities are endless!

wow
by: Marsha

I love making hats with the looms. Your idea of using a tshirt cut into yarn is wonderful. I have heard of crocheting with tshirt strips but never even thought of using them on the loom. Thank you for such a wonderful idea and with the amount of old tshirts I have around here. I have a new way of recycling. Thank you again for this idea. You are the Bomb in my book!

By the way I think your idea of using the tshirts as yarn might even be better to help teach children how to make hats as well. Since some have trouble handling yarn in the loom. Thank you again.

pattern
by: Julie

No pattern. I simply used the round loom, single stitch (knit)and made it as long as I wanted it. I made the pom-pom simply by wrapping the t-shirt "yarn" around four fingers, tying it in the middle and cutting the loops.

piecing it together
by: Anonymous

With the body of the t-shirt, you should be able to get one long strip, enough to make a medium ball of "yarn" by cutting around and around. You could just stop there, but I go ahead and cut strips of the remaining t-shirt. To get the smallest knot possible when connecting the pieces this is what I do: Cut a small hole in the end of the longer piece and do the same to the end of the smaller piece. Run the longer one up into the hole of the smaller strip's hole. Then you should have that longer one that is part of your ball of yarn up through that shorter strip (the one you want to attach). Finally pull the end of the smaller one up into that hole of the longer one. Pull tight and they should tighten up. Let me know if this makes sense.

t-shirt material
by: Anonymous

I simply cut up old t-shirts. I cut them at about 3/4 inch. If you pull on the strips, they roll up like a tube which makes it perfect for using as knitting material. It will make a thick product. This hat is only single knitted and it is really thick.
