Loom Knit Minnie Mouse Hat – Free Pattern

Loom Knit Minnie Mouse Hat Pattern

Loom Knit Minnie Mouse Hat

Loom knit Minnie Mouse hat pattern with out the need to loom knit animal ears. For me personally , it has been the number reason I had not done a bear or mouse hat. I found a way around that dilemma which for most people does matter. I tried some Pom Poms and it come out so cute that my 13-year old wants this hat. She happens to be my muse, so that’s a good sign. By the way, I don’t believe in muses but I like the whole concept anyway. The loom knit pattern is free on this website so give it a try then send me pictures.

This is a pattern for a baby hat but is you want to make it bigger just scroll to the very bottom of the post for a size chart that will help you adjust the pattern for a bigger person.

Note: I used the U-wrap with for my knit stitch throughout this project.

Loom Knit Minnie Mouse Hat










Stitches: Knit, Purl, Garter Stitch, Single Rib Stitch

Yarn: If you want the border to be chunkier especially for bigger hats use two strands of yarn as one.



Cast-on – Any Method is Fine – I used the Chain Cast-on

Row 1 -10 Single Rib Stitch

Note: The Single Rib Stitch pattern is Knit 1, Purl 1. Repeat this process completely around the loom per row for 10 rows.


The Hat

Rows 11 – 40 Garter Stitch

Note: Garter Stitch is 1 row of Knit, 1 row of Purl. Repeat the process until you reach the desire length.

For a bigger hat scroll down to the bottom of the page for a size chart.


Close the Hat 

I used the Gathered Method


The Ears

2 Pom Poms. I used the green Medium Size Clover PomPom Maker. If you are going to do a Loom Knit Minnie Mouse Hat for an adult you need the Large Size Clover Pom Pom maker.  I used these tools instead of something like cardboard or my hand because I wanted to make sure that both were exactly the same size. For other ways to make pom poms for free: Click Here

With the two strings each pom pom has left over when you’re finished making them, I used a crochet hook to feed the yarn into the hat and placed one pom pom on each side of the hat.



The Bow

I didn’t want to loom knit a bow but I wanted it to be made of the same yarn as the border, so this was my happy medium.

I used a cardboard square. Wrapped yarn around the board about 15 times. Grab the whole bunch and pulled them off the cardboard. wrapped yarn around the middle.

With the two strings left over when you’re finished making the bow, I used a crochet hook to feed the yarn strings into the hat and placed the bow in the middle of the hat.


Tiny Pom Poms

For the polka dots I used tiny pom poms that I sewed on. You can also glue them on – but I’m a bit weary of that option.

loom-knit-minnie-mouse-hatThank you Jackie Sherman

Jackie shared her Minnie Mouse hat with our Facebook Family and I wanted to share it with you. I love that she made the hat in red (she says she didn’t have pink) because it’s great to see the pattern in a different color. She also didn’t have tiny pom-poms so she weaved white yarn through the red. Result: Too Cute !


Pom Poms

Change up Your Colors

I wanted to see the little hat in other happy color versions and experimented with my favorite color – Yellow. I was so happy with the way these bright almost florescent shades looked.

I thought they were perfect for pair of boy/girl twins.

    Hi! I LOVE your teaching! You are clear in your directions and easy to follow. My question is this–my sister says that a garter stitch is all rows knitted and the stockinette stitch is knit a row, purl a row, and so forth. I am mixed up on terminology here. Thanks for all you do–I have learned to make so many items from your videos!

  2. Libby February 29, 2016 at 6:47 pm

    I am half way done with my second hat and realize that I didn’t use the chain stitch when I started, I just started with rib stitch, ugh!!!!! Do I need to take it all out or it there some way I can fix it?

    • Denise Canela March 3, 2016 at 8:28 am

      Libby – when you’re finished – just tighten the loose loops: Click HERE

      • Libby March 3, 2016 at 11:09 am

        Thank you so much! I love your site?????

  3. Lisa February 8, 2016 at 9:04 am

    Hi Denise! My 13-year-old daughter has requested one of these (minus the bow lol). I was wondering about the brim. In the video, it didn’t look like you did a folded brim, but the printed instructions at the bottom mention a folded brim. Is there a benefit to doing that? My other question is that the ribs in the brim aren’t parallel on mine…they’re kind of slanted. Is that normal? Thanks for all you do. I spend so much time watching and following your videos. You’re awesome 🙂

    • Denise Canela February 9, 2016 at 10:32 pm

      Hi Lisa – the note about the folded brim is part of the size chart and not the actual hat pattern. I did not fold the brim and for this design – I prefer not to.

    I have done 2 Minnie mouse hats and they have turned out absolutely wonderful. I am working on my third and I’m having issues with spacing. First go-round was too tight, second go around there is space do you know the problem. The first go-round I did a flat stitch not flat stitch but I laid the loom flat and I got to the second I did it normally is I would and there’s too much spacing. Help please! Oh by the way I am following directions I’ve watch the video five times and I just don’t understand what I’m doing wrong.

      Sarah – try the Uwrap: Click HERE

      • Sarah December 7, 2015 at 1:29 am

        I’m apologize I wasn’t clear enough. I cast on with e-wrap, and did the usual rib stitch which was fine. But when I went to the garter stitch it was really tight. I’m reatemping #4 but a lot of people want this hat. I don’t want to run into this problem again.
        BTW- I live in Florida also, Jacksonville. I wish/hope you’re close.
        Much love and appreciation to you!

  5. Penny July 10, 2015 at 8:57 pm

    how do I download this pattern. I would really like to try it for a larger person.

    • Denise Canela July 11, 2015 at 11:20 am

      Penny, Patterns on the page are not downloadable – for several reasons. I have added the link to my Craftsy store where you can purchase a downloadable version which helps keep this website running or you can just copy and past the post on a Word Document.

    Such a cute hat…just finished it…your video was very helpful…thanks!

    • Denise Canela March 16, 2015 at 7:54 am

      You are VERY welcome Robin and Thanks for the Thanks !

  9. Paula October 23, 2014 at 4:24 pm

    The glover pom pom maker, does it help with tighting the yarn around so they don’t pull out easy?

    • Denise Canela October 27, 2014 at 6:29 am

      Yes – Because you’re securing the knot before you remove the tool. Like you holds your yarn for you – while tie your knot.

  10. Kris valley June 2, 2014 at 3:07 pm

    This pattern is so cute. Thank u. Just curious, did u use 2 strands as one or just one strand for the hat?

    • Denise Canela June 6, 2014 at 9:15 pm

      Thank you Kris, I used one strand

  11. Ellen March 31, 2014 at 8:05 pm

    I made my first Minnie Mousevhat today! I am just learning to purl but it really came out so cute! Great directions! Thanks!

    • Denise Canela March 31, 2014 at 8:44 pm

      Awesome Ellen ! Send pics 🙂

  12. Crystal March 19, 2014 at 3:13 pm

    When you work the garter stitch part of the hat are you using the e-wrap knit stitch for the knit rows or the traditional knit stitch? By the way using pom poms for ears is genius! Thanks for sharing this!

    • Denise Canela March 23, 2014 at 6:14 pm

      Hey Crytal – I’m using the e-wrap stitch – because it makes the ~ part more puffy. As far as the “genius” part – you do know that laziness is the stepmother of invention- but THANKS anyway I love to think that someone thinks I’m a genius – those words are like pixie dust 🙂

  13. Jen Bond February 28, 2014 at 7:46 pm

    Hi, I have tried making this hat and I ran into a bit of a problem. I used the toddler sized loom and made 40 rows but it still turned out extremely small. Am I doing something wrong? Granted I am a beginner so that probably doesn’t help things either…

    • Denise Canela March 2, 2014 at 12:16 am

      Jen – the type of yarn you use can make a BIG difference. What type of yarn did you use. Baby yarn would definitely make it small because it tends to be thin unless you get a thick or chunky. I used the Red Heart With Love Yarn and a differant Red Heart for my other versions.

    I have really enjoyed your You Tube videos. I am starting my Mini Mouse hat now? Thanks again!

      You are VERY welcome Kristine. 🙂 Happy I could help

  17. Kim in Michigan January 13, 2014 at 5:29 am

    That is so cute and much easier than the added ears. I have stayed away from the hats with ears also. This is a great way to get around it! Thanks!
