Create a sweet baby cocoon and matching hat for the baby in your life—no “knitting” required! Fiber artist Michele Muska shows you how to use a round loom to make both projects, and how to craft custom fabric simply by holding two different yarns together. Whether you’ve knit with a loom before or this is your first time, this is a simple, relaxing way to create beautiful gifts for your friends and family.
Here’s what you’ll need:
  • 1 skein Red Heart with Love and 1 skein Red Heart Snuggle Bunny; you will need about 110 yards of each for a cocoon and 30 yards of each for a baby hat.  (Note: if you don’t want to double your yarn, use a chunky acrylic yarn)
  • 11 ½” 40-peg round loom by Boye
  • 7 ½” round loom by Boye
  • Loom tool
  • Crochet hook
  • Darning needle
  • Snips or scissors
  • Measuring tape
Learn how to:
  • Select different yarns and combine into a ball
  • Cast onto your loom with an e-wrap cast-on
  • Create a split collar
  • Bind off and weave in ends
  • Change yarn colors
  • Tag garments for convenience

WOW! This is great! I haven't gotten very far into loom knitting yet, but I'm definitely more excited about it now! I even have a few new babies to make gifts for, this will be perfect! Thank you for all the interesting and clear instructions.

excellent instructions. The only thing I'm left not sure about is what size the infant hat loom should be. I will figure out on my own, but it would have been nice if the instructor would have said. The other thing to note is that the snuggle bunny yarn is no longer made. I had to find a substitute.
