Whimsical Loom Knits – September 2014

Hello! My name is Jenny Stark.  I am so excited to be joining you here at Knitting Board Chat!  Once a month, I will be sharing a whimsical little project that you can make with your KB looms.  These projects will be fast and fun – perfect for squeezing in to your busy schedule.  After all, you know what they say about all work and no play…  So, let’s chase those doldrums away with a little bit of yarn!

Layered Loopy Flower

This darling little flower is a great way to use up little bits of yarn left over from other projects.  Make a handful of flowers and use them to embellish hats, bags, hair clips, cards, etc.

IMG_2661 (1024x768)

Loom:  Kb Hat Loom, set up for small gauge.  (This project only requires 2 pegs- one of the 9 peg rails was used for the samples.)

Yarn:  Approximately 5 yards of a #4 yarn.  Each layer of this flower uses about 2.5 yards of yarn.  Work it all in one color, or use two different colors for variety.  Samples use various yarns, including Mosaic by Bernat, Boutique Unforgettable by Red Heart, and Sheep(ish) by Caron.

Notions:  Knitting tool, scissors, yarn needle, button, needle and thread.

Gauge:  Not important for this project.

Size:  About 2″ in diameter.

Instructions

Flower (make 2)

Cast on 2 pegs.

Knit peg 2, twelve times.

Move the stitch on peg 2 over to peg 1.  Knit the bottom stitch over.  (1st petal loop now created)

*Cast a new stitch on to peg 2.

Knit peg 2, twelve times.

Move the stitch on peg 2 over to peg 1.  Knit the bottom stitch over.  (next petal loop now created)

Repeat from * until there are six petals total.

Bind off:  Cut yarn, leaving a 5″ yarn tail.  Knit the last stitch and pull the yarn tail out through the last stitch.  Gently pull on the yarn tail to tighten the bind off.

Forming the flower:  Your knitted piece will be a bit of a jumble when you first take it off of the loom:

IMG_2665 (800x600)

Turn it over, and straighten it out.

IMG_2666 (800x600)

Now it is time for a little needle magic.  Thread the yarn tail from the bind off side through the eye of your yarn needle.  Pass the needle through the bottom of the first petal (where the cast on tail is):

IMG_2667 (800x600)

then pass the needle down through the two loops at the bottom of the next petal:

IMG_2669 (726x800)

Continue to stitch down through the two loops at the bottom of each petal, gently gathering the center of the flower as you work.  When you are finished forming the flower, pass the needle through the center of the flower to the back side.  Your finished flower will look like this:

IMG_2670 (800x600)

Set the first flower aside and make the second flower.

Finishing: Stack one flower on top of the other.  Use the yarn tails to sew the top flower to the bottom flower.  Weave in all ends.

Using the needle and thread, sew a button to the center of the flower. (If preferred, the button can be applied with hot glue.)  

Now – go and make a handful of flowers!  Happy embellishing!

Meadowbrook-chart

Divider

Need a little extra help with the lace stitch pattern? We have broken down below Row 1 of the lace stitch pattern for you.

Recommendations: move the stitches before working the row.

How to:

Knit pegs 1 to 4. (Garter stitch on edge stitches).

The first two pegs of lace portion shown in the chart (pegs 5 and 6 on your loom), on every other row (every odd row), you will do a k2tog. As follows:

Step 1: Lift loop from peg 1 and hold it.

Step 2: Move loop from peg 2 over to peg 1.

Step 3: Place the loop from step 1 back on peg 1.

Step 4: knit peg 1, treating both loops as one loop.

The following portion of the instructions are the part that you will repeat until you reach the last 12 pegs of the shawl stitches (not counting the 4 edge stitches); the original chart shows it inside the blocked out square. 

Mark the next 12 pegs as follows (peg 1 should be on your right side, then count 12 pegs to the left) Number 1 is in red as it is the edge stitch that you already created above, so we are not going to count it

13, 12, 11, 10,9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.

Instead, we are going to renumber them as follows:

12, 11, 10,9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 1.

Notice how we have two number 1s, one is for the edge stitch (the k2tog you created above) and the other is for the lace stitch pattern repeat. Ignore the one in red for the rest of the row instructions.

Lace repeat section

**Step 1: Move loops from peg 2 to 1, from 3 to 2, from 4 to 5, from 5 to 4. Leave peg 5 open (with no loop).

Step 2: Knit peg 1 to 4

Step 3: YO (ewrap) peg 5.

Step 4: knit peg 6.

Step 5: Do a YO on peg 6—the ewrap will be on top of the loop that is on the peg.

Step 6: Knit from peg 7 to peg 10.

Step 7: move loop from peg 12 over to peg 11.

Step 8: move loop from peg 1 (from the next block of lace) over to peg 12.

Step 9: knit peg 12.

Step 10: move loop from peg 12 to peg 11. Lift bottommost two loops up and off the peg.

Step 11: move the loop remaining on peg 11 over to peg 12. (At this point, you should have peg 1 and 11 open (empty).

Step 12: move loops as follows: from peg 10 to 11, from 9 to 10, from 8 to 9, from 7 to 8, and lastly, move the ewrap that is on top of peg 6 over to peg 7.

Repeat from **Step 1, until the last 16 pegs (until you reach peg 77 on the knitting loom).

From peg 79-89, we will work the last chart repeat as follows over 12 pegs (pegs 90-93 are the garter stitch edge stitches):

Step 1: Move loops from peg 2 to 1, from 3 to 2, from 4 to 5, from 5 to 4. Leave peg 5 open (with no loop).

Step 2: Knit peg 1 to 4

Step 3: YO (ewrap) peg 5.

Step 4: knit peg 6.

Step 5: Do a YO on peg 6—the ewrap will be on top of the loop that is on the peg.

Step 6: Knit from peg 7 to peg 10.

Step 7: Move loop from 12 to 11.

Step 8: Knit peg 11.

Step 9: Move loop from 11 to 12; 10 to 11; 9 to 10; 8 to 9; 7 to 8, YO to peg 7.

End of lace portion

Knit the last 4 pegs for the garter stitch ridge.

Row 1 of the lace stitch pattern is complete.

Row 2: purl 4, k to last 4 sts, purl 4.

Bind off with gather removal method. Weave ends in.

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

If you love the look of this pattern, be sure to check out Luisa Mangus’ Spring Breeze Slouchy Hat.  Need extra help? Luisa also has a YouTube video demonstrating all the steps.

  • 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.

  • Do you have a video tutorial for this?

  • Do you do row 15 the same as row 12 just purl instead?

  • Rose, yep. Rnd 15: p to the end of rnd.

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!

  • In regards to the icords; how do you cut the yarn and then join with the next peg? Thanks!

  • I so love these, thanks for sharing.

  • Just cut the yarn leaving a 6 inch tail. Join to the next peg by making a slip knot and placing it on the peg.

Summer Rose Headband

Easy and Quick to knit up.  School colors make it outstanding.

Everyone needs to keep their ears warm when ole’ winter comes again, and look so cute at the same time.  Our warm headband is knit with 2 colors of worsted weight yarn, partial skeins and adorned with a simple crochet flower and secured with a ½” button.

Loom:  Tadpole knitting board

Yarn:  Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice, 100% acrylic worsted weight was used.  This headband only requires 1/2 skein of each yarn, so any washable worsted weight yarn should do a great job.

Stitches:  Stockinette and Rib.

Size:  20” stretched slightly and is 3.5” wide.  This should fit most young girls.

Notions Needed:  Knit hook, crochet hook, (1) button, 1/2″ .

 

 

 

Instructions:

Cast On (4) stitches in stockinette with pink yarn.  Lay anchor yarn of any yarn.

Work in stockinette stitch for (6) rows.

Increase row:  Move stitch #1 over to empty pin.  Lift previous stitch from pin #2 onto the empty pin.  Do this to both sides of loom and both ends.  You now have 2 additional stitches on loom.  Weave all pins and hook over.

Work (1) increase row and (1) regular row.  Repeat these (2) rows 3 more times so that there are (12) sts on the loom.

Once you have (12) stitches on loom, you are ready to change to 2nd color yarn (purple) and knit in rib stitch.  Cut yarn with 3-4” tail.  Tie on 2nd yarn at 2nd pin, attaching to  pink yarn.  Trim and tuck this yarn tail.

Work in rib stitch for 38 rows or until the center of headband is as long as you want it.

Cut 2nd yarn and tie the 1st yarn back on.  Change to stockinette stitch for remainder of headband.

Work this section same as beginning section except do decrease rows rather than increase rows, so that you end up with only (4) stitches.

Decrease row:  Place the 2nd loop onto 3rd pin.  Place the 1st loop onto empty pin.  Do this to both sides of loom and both ends.  You now have 2 sts less on loom.  Weave all pins and hook over being sure to pick up both loops on 2nd pins.  This will leave (1) loop on all pins.

Work (1) decrease row and (1) regular row.  Repeat these (2) rows 3 more times so that there are (4) sts on the loom.

Work (6) rows in stockinette stitch.  Bind off.  Tuck yarn tail into knit.  Bind off at anchor yarn.  Sew the (2) short ends with 4 sts together to close up the headband.

Flower is single crochet secured with pretty button.  Make this with the pink yarn for contrast.    Sew your flower to top of headband.  Options can be a pom-pom, a felt flower, or any adornment desired. Everyone will love one of these cute headbands especially the girls headed back to school
