Loom Knit Ruffle Scarf

Ruffles copy

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.

DIRECTIONS

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.
