Learn How to Close Your Loom Knit Hat
A lot of folks find themselves stuck here. I did. I first learned with a sales rep at a Joann’s Fabric demo. I never learned from her how to close the hat. I had to read it from the little book that came with the kit. I HATE reading instructions. But I learned. Now I’m here to teach you.
The skill is an incredibly important part because you will use it again and again and again with other projects. Learn it well.

1. Measure your knitting and make sure that your hat is the length that you want.
2. Take your working string and pull almost completely around the loom.
