View Full Version : Magic Loop Hat
Hi! I took a class at my Mom's LYS and we learned how to do magic loop - it was really confusing at first, but now I love it!! I haven't been knitting for very long and I was deathly afraid of dpns!! So, this was perfect for me!! :-) I had so much fun, I made a 2nd one for my friend! :teehee:

They look fantastic! Looks like you really got the technique down. The colors are great too. :yay:

Magic Loop is great, especially for socks, hats, or any time you would use dpn's. The hats are really cute, good work!
Thanks! I just used Yarn Bee Soft Illusions from Hobby Lobby - It is a super chunky yarn with an eyelash wrapped around it - the first hat was red yarn with a variagated purple, turquoise and yellow and the 2nd hat was white with purple, pink and green. My mom and sister picked on me when I bought the yarn for the first one, they thought the colors were too bright and didn't go well together, but they liked the hat when I finished it!
I really like doing magic loop, but I think I would have had a hard time learning it if I hadn't taken a class. And, I probably wouldn't have had the guts to take a class if my mom hadn't taken it too! Too bad I had to come home after the holidays! I will have to find my own LYS!

They look great! Congrast on learning ML too! That's my method of choice for small diamter knitting. :) Glad you got your first taste of classes too. See, they aren't all that scary are they? Hope you take some more now that you're home.

I think I am odd... I found ML and 2 circs more fumbly than dpns... I'm glad that there is a way we can all do it and enhoy knitting!

Great job Amanda! The hats are really nice! Magic loop and I didn't get along for the longest time. I can see you picked it up really well. Way to go!!:yay:

You are right - I think it is great that there are different ways to achieve the same result!! :woohoo: Totally fun!!
I am really digging this magic loop thing and I think I might be addicted to hats! I knit an entire hat while I watched the Super Bowl!! Oh- so it was Wool Ease Thick n Quick and size 13 needles, but still! I did the whole thing from cast on to bind off! :happydance:

I love magic loop!!! I just finished my second pair of mitten with magic loop, it is soooooo much easier than dpn's.

Nice projects. It is good to learn ML (although DPNs are not hard). I agree that it was good to learn in person. I tried for a long time looking at still tutorials and could never get it. Then ArtLady taught it to me in a few minutes when I met her.
