Ann H. is a fellow Minnesotan who shared the story of her long involvement with pin looms, including all the details for making this very classic (double-layered reversible felted) pin loomed hat. You will find a diagram and complete directions for making the hat below.
- The hat is made with 49 - 4x4 wool pin loom squares and 18 - 2x2 wool squares.
- Join the squares (I would suggest using the double overcast stitch) to create a tube with the right side out.
- Join the squares at the ends of the tube to close the ends as shown in the pictures above.
- Fold the closed tube in on itself to create a very large double-sided, reversible hat.
And here it is, the classic pin loom hat. Now that I have a handle on the pattern I am definitely going to make one. I realize that I could make the hat using just one of the styles on the ends, but I think that I am going to be so curious about the hat that I will want to recreate the two different ends.
My hat won't be made with hand dyed natural colors, that's beyond my skill level. But I am going to think about what colors I would love most...
