Here is another hat I made on my DIY Bic pen loom yesterday.  It's a little small, but I was experimenting with decreases.  They are fairly easy to do on this loom (Jeudi is holding what is left of the loom when I finished).  I didn't have to actually remove the pegs.  I could just attach a rubber band to the next peg, but it is less bulky when completely removed.

I will post some more pics on my blog to show how I did this when I have some extra time.

For more pics and info:

I made a hat very similar for my sis for christmas last year but I crocheted it. I really like the way you decreased though! And that yarn is so pretty! It's really cute! I'm so checking out your blog later!

I'm so happy.  Today, I tried double knit on my Bic pen loom. It worked pretty good.  A little wobbly, but not enough to complicate things too badly.  I'm going to make my mom a scarf using it, so I've got to get more yarn soon.  To see pics and learn more go to:


Happy knitting!
