    Where can I get this

    Something I learned when finishing loom hats. Move a loop to top of next peg, alternating all the way around. Finish off. You now have 1/2 the number of loops to gather up on your needle and pull. This makes the final gather less bulky.
    I know I didn’t describe it well. Hope you can understand what I’m trying to say.
