28″ Knitting Loom with Peg Extenders
Lion Brand Recycled Cotton in Seagrass, Lion Brand Recycled Cotton in Marine
knit hook, size E crochet hook, tapestry needle, large button.
3.5” by 6.25”
1. Assemble the loom. Attach the loom extenders one section apart.
2. Warp the loom. Holding two strands of the marine recycled cotton yarn together, tie the yarn to a corner peg. Wrap the yarn around the next peg to one side of the corner peg, then around the next peg on the other side of the corner peg. Continue to work back and forth, wrapping the yarn around every peg. Tie the yarn to the last peg and cut leaving a 5″ tail.
3. Begin weaving. Turn the loom. Holding two strands of yarn together, one strand in Marine Recycled Cotton and one of each color, tie the yarn to the corner peg. Use a crochet hook or the knit hook to weave under then over the warp. Repeat the process, this time weaving over the strands you went under, then under the strands you went over. Continue until all of the pegs have been filled. Leave a long tail, cut the yarn, and tie it to the corner peg.
4. Taking it off of the loom. Using a single strand of Seagrass Recycled Cotton yarn, make a slip knot and place it on your crochet hook. Start at a corner peg, and work across the longer side first. Use the crochet hook to lift the weft off the peg, and onto the crochet hook. Yarn over the hook and pull through all the loops on the hook. There should now be one loop of yarn on the crochet hook and one peg bound off. Lengthen the loop on the crochet hook slightly, then bind off the the next peg in the same manner. Continue until all the pegs have been bound off and the woven piece has been removed from the pegs. Leave the loop of yarn on the crochet hook. Do not cut the yarn.
5. Add a button loop. Insert the crochet hook into the center of the first bound off stitch, yarn over and pull the loop through. Flip the work over to the back side, and work across the shorter side that you just bound off. Insert your hook between the next two bound off stitches, under the two threads. (See photo.) Yarn over the hook and pull through, yarn over again and pull through both loops on the hook; one single crochet stitch created. Repeat until you have created 8 single crochet stitches. Yarn over pull through; one chain stitch created. Make chain stitches until it is about twice the width of your button. Continue making single crochet stitches as you were before until you reach the corner. Cut and knot the yarn. Weave in all your yarn ends.
6. Seam the edges. Flip the fabric back over and fold the bottom half up 3.25” to create the body of the eyeglass case. Using the bind off stitches as a guide, sew up both sides of the eyeglass case with a tapestry needle and a single strand of yarn. Cut and knot the yarn. Weave in your ends.
7. Sew on the button. Use a single strand of yarn and the tapestry needle to sew on the button. Knot the yarn on the back side to secure, and weave in the ends.

The Urban Cowl is one of ultimate favorite items to wear. It not only looks good with almost every piece of clothing, but it can also be knit in one afternoon. I wanted to make another one on Saturday and I wanted to use my All-n-One loom. So I sat down and realized that I could use 2 pegs as one to create a “bigger” stitch for my Malabrigo Rasta yarn.
The picture shown uses almost 2 skeins of Malabrigo Rasta, it goes around the neck twice. If you prefer, you can use 1 skein for a one loop cowl.
Warm, fast and easy were priority for this knit. I needed something that would look chunky and fashionable, something I could wear with my jeans, something that screamed urban style.
All-n-One loom, 30 pegs. You will use 2 pegs as 1.
140 yds of Super Bulky weight wool yarn. Sample was knit using Malabrigo Rasta, 1.5 skeins.
Knitting tool, tapestry needle.

I created this pattern back in November 2011 and I have been meaning since then to put a small video on how to use the KB looms with this type of yarn. Finally, I was able to get this project done. The pattern is the same as I created back then, except in this video, I am using the Sashay yarn which has smaller hole openings. In this video, you will see me skip two opening and use the third, so in essence we are using every 3rd opening on the yarn to create the scarf.
Locate the upper row of the mesh, the one with the bigger hole openings, you will be using this upper row to cast on and to knit. Before you begin, you may want to open a bit of the mesh to facilitate the knitting process. The work will come out through the center of the knitting loom (between the two rails).
Place 2 stitch markers on your knitting loom, one on peg 1 and the other on peg 6.
Foundation/Cast on Row: Place one loop on peg 1, *skip 2 opening, place the 3rd opening on the next peg; rep from * until 6 pegs have a loop on them.
Row 1: Skip 2 openings, place the 3rd opening on the last peg, skip 2 openings, place the next opening on the 5th peg; repeat skipping 2 openings and placing the 3rd opening on the following peg. Each peg should have 2 loops on each peg. Lift the bottom loop off the peg, leaving only one loop on each peg.
Row 2: Move the stitches from one side of the board to the opposite side (see video on how this is done).
Skip 2 openings, place the 3rd opening on the first peg, skip 2 openings, place the next opening on the 2nd peg; repeat skipping 2 openings and placing the 3rd opening on the following peg. Each peg should have 2 loops on each peg. Lift the bottom loop off the peg, leaving only one loop on each peg.
Repeat Rows 1 and 2 until item measures desired length. Typically, a scarf takes one full skein. Picture shows a scarf with one full skein.
Bind off with basic bind off method. Weave ends in.

Most of us learn to loom knit with the e-wrap cast on method. We quickly realize that it produces a loopy cast on. Here is a tip that I have used for several years in a lot of my knits. Enjoy!

I have received a few emails asking me to create a video on creating the pony tail hole for the Pony Tail Hat. Here is a short video demonstrating how I create this opening.
