How to: lift the bottommost loop up and off the pegs; each peg should      remain with the 3 ewraps on it.

Rnd 12: k to the end of rnd.

How to: First, unravel the ewraps from the peg (it will look like an elongated            stitch). Take yarn to the front of the peg and knit the peg as normal. Be    careful that the stitch stays on the peg and does not “pop” off the peg.

Next rnd: *k2tog; rep from * to the end of rnd. (20 sts rem).

How to: move loop from odd number peg to the even number peg. Each    even peg (2, 4, 6, etc) should have 2 loops on it. Knit the round, treating both loops on each peg as one loop.

Set the stitches by gently tugging on the hat vertically. All the stitches should be elongated and open.

  • Can this be done on the aio loom?

  • Yes, you can do it all the AIO. You need to use worsted weight yarn and about 64 or 68 pegs. Follow the pattern exactly. You will need about 120 yds of yarn.

  • I really love the looks of this hat! And the color of the yarn (along with the name of it as well), goes right along with the slouch-type Rasta hats :)

  • Hi Isela, I’ve been a fan for more than 8 years. Can I do this on the regular knifty knitter looms?

  • Yes. I don’t know which loom you will use but if the peg number is not divisible by 4, your ribbing will be different. If you don’t have a multiple of 4 in pegs, do a 1×1 rib (k1,p1) for the brim. The rest should be exactly the same as written.

Slouchy Hat on the Loom Knitting with the All-n-One Loom booklet

LoomKnittingwithallione

We received a request for a little bit of extra assistance in creating the slouchy hat pictured in the front cover of the All-n-One loom.

The instructions for the increase round read: Rnd 9: *k3, m1l; rep from * to the end of rnd (80 sts).

I will offer you two methods to achieve this:

Method 1:

Remove all 60 stitches from the knitting loom and place them on a piece of scrap yarn or on a circular needle.

Set your knitting loom to 80 pegs.

Place the stitches back on the knitting loom as follows: place 3 stitches back on 3 pegs, skip one peg, place 3 stitches back on 3 pegs, skip one peg, keep repeating this instructions until you have place all stitches back on the knitting loom.

*Knit 3 pegs, now create the M1L and place it on the empty peg; repeat from the *.

Method 2: 

*Knit 3 pegs, M1L and place it on peg 3 (over the loop already there, peg 3 will have 2 loops on it). Continue around the knitting loom repeating this sequence.

On the following round: knit 2 pegs, lift the loop that is at the top of peg 3 and hold it or place it on peg 4, knit the loop on peg 3, place the loop that you were holding back on top of peg 3 (or move it from peg 4 back to peg 3), knit this loop (be sure to only knit the top loop and leave the one at the bottom untouched). Continue around the loom  repeating this sequence.

Now, remove all the stitches from the knitting loom and place them on a piece of scrap yarn or a circular needle.

Set your knitting loom to 80 pegs.

Place your stitches back on the knitting loom.

I hope the above helps to facilitate the increases. It is the most laborious round of the hat, take it slow and one step at a time.

Good luck!

Woven Table Decor

  Blending Weaving and Knitting!

Blending easy weaving with some knitted edges can create great home décor.  You can weave separate place mats for the table or connect several pieces to create a table runner as long as needed.  Here, we have created two sections and connected with one-color panel of knit.

table22

Loom: 28” knitting board + peg extenders, set up as a rectangular loom using both 20-peg extenders

Yarn:  Elite Verde, Sprout, 100% Organic Cotton, machine wash, lay flat to dry.  Each hank is aprox 100 grams or 109 yards.  Colors used are #4378 Brown (1 hank), #4325 Pink,  (1 hank), and #4316 Cream (1 hank).

 

Notions needed:  Knit hook, Crochet hook #4-5, 12” long wooden crochet hook, and darning needle

 

Size finished: 9 X 56 inches (each section is aprox. 28” long). Work as many as needed.

 

 

 

 

 

Instructions:

Choose the color that you want as the base.  Here we have used the brown yarn (yarn #1).  Start with a loop knot and place it on the first peg on the long side of the loom.  You are working across from one long board to the other.  Weave across all pegs.  End with another loop knot.  Keep the yarn taut, but with enough stretch so the size is maintained once off the loom. Do not use the 4 corner pegs of the loom. Your base yarn is set up.

Now, place a loop knot on the first peg of the extender using yarn 2, pink.  Use the long crochet hook in 3 sections to move the yarn across the base yarn and down to the opposite extender on first peg.  This is one continuous flow of the yarn of each color.  Work 4 pegs of pink yarn.

Once the pink yarn is complete, cut yarn and tie on the brown yarn to the pink yarn tail at peg.  Work 2 rows of brown yarn.  Cut brown, tie on the yarn #3 Cream at next peg.  Work 8 pegs back and forth in the cream yarn.  Do not be concerned with all the yarn tails.

table.1

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Change back to the brown yarn for another 2 rows.  Cut and tie to the pink yarn.

Work last 4 pegs with pink to match the opposite side.  Knot the pink upon completion

by tying to the last peg or use a loop knot for easy removal. 

Edges (linear) along the long boards:  Choose the yarn color for the edges.  We decided to keep using the brown yarn. Use the short crochet hook and keep the weaving on the loom as you work.  Do not remove at this time.

Start at one end of the long boards.  Pick up the loop, from top to bottom, on the first peg and grab the working yarn.

 

table.edge1

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Make one more chain stitch on the hook.  Move the crochet hook to front of board and twist the hook so that the loop on it is twisted.  Pick up next loop and repeat.

Continue down the board until all pegs are secured with the crochet edge.  The edge will be on the outside of the loom.  Knot the yarn on last peg to secure or use loop knot.

Repeat the same edge on the other side of the loom so that both sides are completed.  Your woven piece should still be on all pegs.  The only open pegs are the ones at 4 corners of the loom.

 

Completing the ends with knitting: Once the long sides are complete and secure, you can work the short ends.  You may do this with knit and purl stitches on the loom, or move the loops to a #10.5 long knitting needle.  You will want to carefully remove the side edges off the pegs being careful not to remove the end loops until they are completed.  However you choose to knit off the ends, work with knit and purl rows.  Tie on the yarn at one end peg of a short side.  Add a stitch to the end pegs at beginning and at end of loom. You will be working on 22 pegs.  Work 2 rows in knit stitch, 1 purl row.  Repeat 3 times ending with a knit row. This is aprox 10 rows of knitting.  Bind off.  If you want it done in all knit stitches or all purl stitches, this can be a matter of choice. Once complete, draw in all yarn tails into the same color section and trim.

On the 2nd panel, you can just knit the one side edge.  The other end will be joined to the first panel and can be a bind off with the crochet hook.  If you choose to knit this edge also, you will create a wider middle section by sewing the 2 knit ends together.  If you have chosen to make place mats, be sure to knit off both ends.  As mentioned, you may have a longer table that you want your runner to fit.  You may work up as many woven panels as desired.  If you plan to do a 3rd panel, be sure to purchase a 2nd hank of the yarn that you are using for your base and edges.  3 panels will make a runner aprox 84” long.

You may want to block lightly, the knit sections, for nice even edges with the weaving.

Weaving is just another way to create home décor, tote bags, and scarves.  You can also experiment with many different types of media other than yarn.  Try cord, jute, and fabric yarn.

  • I have purchased the all in one loom and a pattern book with a turquoise slouchy hat on the cover. I want to make that hat! I know how to do the M1L but I cannot figure out how to go from 60 to 80 stitches! The directions are not clear. From what I have read it seems to be a problem for a lot of loom knitters out there. Where is the answer? I bought that book for that pattern and don’t think it’s fair that I cannot even get a answer. The store does not take a return for a pattern. Will anyone please help?

  • http://knittingboardchat.com/blog/index.php/archives/2083 Check out this post, it provides two methods of achieving this increase.

  • Isela ,Thank you ! The info on the slouchy hat was great,easy peasy now.Kari
