The Mock Crochet Hat on an Extra Large Loom
I totally love the look of the Mock Crochet Hat. The stitch has always been among my favorites. It’s like an easy Diamond Lace Stitch. Although it’s pretty simple I’ve posted the pattern along with a step by step video tutorial for us visual learners.
I did change the way Tina Edgar, the creator of the stitch, begins the technique. I think my method is easier especially for beginners. Oddly enough the way Tina starts her stitch is the reason we now have the very awesome Three Step Stitch by Zoey McClean. She thought the beginning of the stitch – was the stitch pattern. Proving that good things can come from mistakes.

The Brim: Single Rib Stitch
Rows 1 – 10: Knit 1, Purl 1
Row 11: Knit 2 (Uwrap) , then continue with the Mock Crochet Stitch
Rows 12 – 22: Mock Crochet Stitch
To Do the Mock Crochet Stitch knit the first 2 pegs. Keep in mind that from this point on where ever the working yarn is, that is Peg 2. Take the working yarn from the back to the front wrapping pegs 1, 2 and 3. Using the Flat Knit Stitch – Knit-off the three pegs. Again, where the working yarn is, that is now Peg 2. Repeat the process.
To Decrease the Crown. e-Wrap the first peg, knit-off. Move that loop to the next peg, knit-off. Repeat the same technique until you have gone around the loom. You should have a loop on every other peg. Now you can close the hat.
Close the Hat:
Use the Gathered Method
