Need some inspiration?

Have you had a chance to look at Loom Knitters Circle Magazine? The Winter issue had a few patterns that can be done on the new AllnOne knitting loom. Check out the Friendship Shawl, modeled by my dearest and closest friend Amelia. She inspired me to create this shawl, as she was preparing to leave for an indefinite period of time to Mexico to await her visa. The shawl can be made on the new AllnOne, simply set it as a regular loom in the round, to be able to use 67 pegs. I recommend positioning the Sliders all the way at each end, then get to work ;).

Do you have the Sock Loom? Here is a pattern created on the Knitting Board Sock Loom. My ultimate favorite elegant, lush fingerless mitts. These were knit in a luxury yarn that doesn’t require any special stitches, simple stockinette to allow the beauty of the yarn to come through.

  • Lovely pattern on the shawl! So lovely I would love to make it on a myriad of projects!

  • I have made so many fingerless mitts, but never this long. I really have to try it!

  • I love the shawl.

  • Do you have any patterns for fingerless gloves that are tubes ie like a sock but have a thumb?
    Thank you

  • Thank you so much! I am so excited to be part of such a great company. I have fallen in love with the All-n-One knitting loom and the Adjustable Sock Loom. Both are some of my ultimate favorite products and I am so glad that I can share some of my knowledge and patterns with your friends.

    I hope many of you join me and visit us often for knitting tidbits and patterns.

    Again, thank you for having me.

  • I would love a womens cardigan patttern, maybe in lightweight yarn. Any pattern suggestions?

  • YAY!! Isela is the best!! Glad to see you joining up with her. Great looms! A good pro!! And of course the staff at Knittingboard is wonderful!! All the best to you! I will be lurking and watching!! Wendy

  • So glad to see Isela here! Nearly everything I learned about loom knitting was from her wonderful videos. I send people to the video page on her blog all the time. Can’t wait to see what she has in store for us.

  • Isela!! It’s so good to see you back in the full looming and pattern world again. I know you’ve been here and there, but not as active. Glad you and KB hooked up.The BEST of both worlds together!

    Hugs,
    LindaJ

  • Isela, glad to see you again! You’ve been missed in other parts of the loomy world! Your reference materials are The Best, and your work has inspired me, and many others, I’m sure, to really stretch our abilities in this craft. Thanks!

  • Thank you so much:). I am glad to be here with you all. I am ready to share lots of goodies and tips ;)

  • Thank you Linda! I am so excited to be working with the awesome gals at KnittingBoard.com.

  • Thank you Susan :). I am very happy to be here, supporting some wonderful looms.

  • I am so happy that Isela Phelps is going to be on this site for the Authentic Knitting Board. Thank you Isela

  • Looking forward to being inspired!

  • I have to tell you about the knitting loom explosion I’ve created. Totally by accident. My oldest daughter started loom knitting and I thought that my 11 y.o. daughter would like to learn as well. She did, but not only her but her other 2 older sisters, and their friends! I bought looms for my niece and my good friend too. I suggested to my friend that she take the loom to her 90 y.o. lady she works for , maybe it would be fun for her and less labor intensive than knitting needles. She loves it! Her daughter , who is a nun , decided to buy them for all of the nuns as well, and they are knitting hats and prayer shawls! Crazy, right? All that to say, I think their is a a revival of “doing” instead of “watching” and that is exciting. Thanks for all of your tutorials and patterns.
    So helpful!

  • One more thing. Is there a tutorial for understanding and reading knitting instructions? I need one….

  • i am trying to make the baby high top sneakers,but am getting stuck on how to increase 28 stitches to 32-i need help!

  • How very exciting!!! Thank you for visiting our site!

  • Currently, we do not have a tutorial like that, but we can get working on one. Thank you for the suggestion.

  • Hello, I would like to double knit a scarf that is 12″ wide. What product would be needed to make it? An All-n-One or a 28″ board? Thank you.

  • Isela I have been looking at your Summer Breeze top free pattern done on a 28 peg AIO loom. Can this be done on the 18″ AIO loom also since it is flat panel knitting?

  • If you are doing the small sizes, you could use the AIO, but the larger sizes require more pegs than what the AIO loom has

  • The All-n-One loom will work for this project.

  • Hi Isela, I have your Loom Knitting Socks book, but the Wonder Sock Loom is no longer available. What loom do you recommend as replacement for your patterns in the book?
    Thanks! Susan

  • Susan,
    Currently, there are no looms that transfer directly to these patterns. However, if you hold on tight, I believe a similar knitting loom will enter the market in the fall. In the meantime, you will have to adapt all the pattern to the different gauge knitting looms. You will need to take into consideration the gauge. The gauge of the socks is really tight, so you will need to probably half all the numbers that the patterns call for. Example, if the sock calls for 80 pegs, you probably will be using 40 pegs with the larger gauges.

  • Hi I am having trouble with the 52 peg sock loom videos on the heel and toe it is very confusing! it only does not complete the heel nor the toe! If you can help Isela to help me in better detail, I love to hear from you. Ive had to start too many time for my liking
    Thanks
    Emily

  • I am blind and on the iris hat you start out with 70 stitches and add ten more and then you have to take it all off the board and replace it to 80 stitches is there a easier way
    thank You Judy
