I made this purple envelope hat out of a soft Charisma yarn for a young pediatric chemo warrior. I used the toddler size round loom and did the garter stitch for the brim. I e-wrapped the hat and when it came time to close the hat, I took it of the loom with my silver tapestry needle and a yellow yarn (it was a scrap piece). I took off each loop (each peg) and the entire hat (the last row) is all on the yellow yarn. I then matched up each loop to its partner (corresponding loop) and did a single crochet with a purple yarn (same color as the hat) and the 2 partnering loops. I repeated the single crochet step until I was done. I then pulled out the yellow yarn from all the loops and made a knot inside the hat.
I then had some cream yarn and attempted my first flower using this pattern.
