How to Loom Knit a Music Hat
You will need a 50 peg loom
Depending on the kind of loom you have depends on the size of the hat. This was done on a Knifty Knitter 50peg Long Loom with Lions Brand Thick and Quick Yarn. The example above is a slouchy hat when wearing it. Will give suggestions as to where to stop to make a beanie hat instead.
Starting in Black
EW Cast On 50 pegs
Row 1: EW50
Row 2: P50
Now start the color works graph below E-Wrapping or Knitting (Knitting will make is twice as small)
If you want to make a beanie hat rather than a slouchy hat, you can do to row 25 and then EW or Knit in straight white yarn for 1 or 2 rows, repeat the decreasing and draw string cast off.
This is a 3 section design, feel free to use a single section if you would like for a simpler hat. The piano keys would be great for a brim on any hat.
