Would like to loom knit a beard but don't have a pattern, help!

by Meg

Hello! I came across this totally cute hat and beard that I would love to learn how to loom knit. I found a knitting needle pattern but I only loom knit and my brain cannot comprehend how to convert needle patterns to loom. It also cannot comprehend how to figure out how to knit something without a pattern, I need step-by-step instructions! I'm including a picture I found, I have no problem knitting the hat, it's the beard I need help with. And then I figure I can attach the beard to the hat using velcro or buttons. So if there is anyone out there with awesome loom skills and can figure this out or already has a pattern, that would be so great! Thanks!

Yes, and in the links below, you will find help. Hopefully you are on facebook. there are 4 or 5 great groups there, and in each group under the head photo, you will see "files" - there are patterns in there. The person I know that has a pattern, is Christine Fasoula. (reachable through any loom group, and also, you can send her a message that you want to know about bears. But in these groups, you can ask any question, ask for any help, and you will have people there who are crazy about looming too!
