Ameline Shawl

Amelina600

We close the month of Shawl-September with Ameline, a simple lace pattern that spreads throughout the shawl to resemble cascading drops. We hope you have enjoyed the shawls during our first Shawl-September.

Knitting loom: All-n-One Knitting Loom

Yarn: 620-900 yards of light worsted weight merino wool. Malabrigo Rastita in Dewberry was used in sample.

Notions: knitting tool, row counter (optional), tapestry needle, eight stitch/peg markers.

Sl1: slip 1-skip one peg with yarn behind the peg.

Rep: repeat

K2tog: knit two stitches together. Over two pegs, working on the knitting loom from a right to left direction—peg 1 is on the right, peg 2 is on the left.  Move stitch from peg 1 to peg 2. Leave peg 1 empty. Treat both loops on peg 2 as one loop.

YO: yarn over (ewrap peg)—special note: on the following row after creating the YO, undo the ewrap on the peg and simply lay the yarn in front of the peg.

Sl1-k1-psso: slip 1, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over. Over two pegs, working on the knitting loom from a left to right direction—peg 1 is on the right, peg 2 is on the left. Skip peg 1 with yarn behind the peg, knit peg 2. Move loop from peg 2 over to peg 1, lift bottommost loop off peg 1.

  • 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.

  • There is an error in this pattern. There are no rows between rows 12 and 13 to create the garter stitches that separate the sets of drop stitches. Instead, the pattern immediately goes into another set of drop stitches with no garter stitches to separate them.

  • Karen,
    The hat has 2 rounds of elongated stitches at the beginning, no garter stitch separates them. The reason why there is no garter stitch between those two rounds of elongated stitches is to not have a ridge right by the forehead area. I started the dropped stitches after that area. So this is what the hat should be: ribbed hem, 1 round of knit stitches to set up for the hat body. 2 rounds of elongated stitches. After these two rounds of elongated stitches, then we start with 2 garter stitch ridges, then 1 round of elongated stitches, we repeat starting at the 2 garter stitch ridges. Does this make sense?

  • I feel so dumb. I looked at the picture more closely and realized mine had looked like it was supposed to before I ripped it out. I missed that because the yarn is so thick and I thought I was seeing one round of elongated stitches when it was actually two. Thanks so much for your fast response. I hope I can save it.

  • If not, I think it will still look fabulous :). It will be an original!

  • Can you explain round 13 please? “As round ten” does that mean round 13 is 10a & 10b again? Thanks!

  • Yes, Round 10-A and 10-B.

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.

  • Which knit stitch is being used in the Lulu Headband?

  • Can these be done on any of the knifty knitter looms???? thank you

  • The knit stitch (opposite of a purl stitch).

  • If they have small gauge enough, such as the AiO knitting loom.

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.

headbandflower (3)

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

  • What is psso? It does not explain that in the abbreviations.

  • Sorry this is off the beaten path but are there any patterns for children mittens on the sock loom 2? I would love to make some for winter for charities. Sue Kreitzer

  • Hello so in reading the pattern, the knits are the alternate to the purl and not a ewrap. Am I right?

  • correct

  • As of right now, we don’t have any children mitt patterns. We will work on that for the upcoming winter. Thank you for the suggestion.
