Loom the Oops Hat – FREE Pattern

Loom the Oops HatThe Oops Hat

Loom the Oops Hat if you dare. This was my first attempt at designing this pattern. I might not repeat it. Took all day and I was really upset with the results when I first finished the hat. During the process I became very distracted while knitting, writing and trying to solve world hunger. My mind was roaming around the universe and back. Talk about slamming into an Oops. I purled when I should have knitted. Slipped when I should have stopped.  Good thing you can’t distinguish all my boo-boos by the picture. You would have to see the hat up close. Well ….

Well my daughter liked the hat, a lot. Go Figure. I think she was hungry and the hat reminded her of a bran muffin. Anyway, since she is my muse I thought I would share the hot mess hat and challenge you to loom the Oops hat yourself. Take pictures of your version and share them here. Let me see what you can do with my sort of messed-up pattern.

I know that messing things up is how you learn .. So here it goes.

Note about My Modified Seafoam Stitch

This was my variation on Lori Hollemans Seafoam Stitch. Her yarn overs go up to 5. I thought I would stop at 3 which is where I think I made one of my mistakes. If I were to try this pattern again I would go all the way. I believe that is the only way to get a look that appears like a wave.

    Love it! I feel ya, had one of these same hats with errors and felt the same way…silver lining in the clouds. A lesson in disguise to the recipient that no one is perfect but everyone is lovable!

    A Jewish friend of mine asked me to make a yamulke for him. I have not bee able to find a pattern for the loom. Do you know of one?

      Sorry Sandy, I do not know of any. Take a look at the flat flower made on the flower loom – some slight adjustments may work
