  • Hi there
    I’ve bought and I’m using the fabulous Sock Loom! And I wondered if someone could help me please?!

    At the start of the Heel & Toe Part 2 DVD, it tells me to continue wrapping until I have 5x pegs wrapped, 5x unwrapped and 5x pegs wrapped so I will then have two thirds of the pegs wrapped.

    So my question is should I wrap 5x pegs at each end of my ‘short row method’ or do I need to wrap two thirds of the number of pegs that I am currently using?

    I hope this makes sense.

    Thanks in advance!

    Genevieve

  • Yep, that makes sense. You will work with the amount of pegs that are being used. so the 2/3 rule will change with each sock based on the amount of pegs used. Does that make sense? pat

Headband Pattern Video LAL 1 and 2

Help to the rescue!!!

After 6 hours, the videos have finally finished uploading! Yay! We have two parts ready for you. Part 1 covers til row 8. Part 2 covers til row 12. These two parts have you covered for the increases portion of the headband. If you have any questions, comments, hit me up below in the comments and I’ll do my best to answer them within 48 hours.

  • Are written instructions forthcoming?

  • I am so new I just received my loom today! But I am very confused. If you use the e cast on, can you go back a forth? Or do you always need to knit in the round? I have watched several videos for casting on, I favor the figure 8 cast on-but there isn’t any information as to what I would do after casting on, do I continue doing the figure 8 or the every other wrap. I was wondering if you could also recommend a good starter book. I am a very experienced knitter but my hands need a break. I also prefer to knit with fingering yarn, but trying it in my 28″ board gave me awful results.

    Thank you for your help
    Mindy

  • Linda, the written instructions are in the blog post below/previous to this one.

  • I am somehow missing the decreases??

  • I’m not getting the part 3 video, it plays 1 & 2 then skips to 4!

  • Isela I love your design but I am a little knew at this cut you possibly make a video to show us hit

Loom Knit Headband Pattern

Welcome my loomy knitters! It is February! Snow still coming down here in Utah…sigh, and we are feeling like penguins and walking like some too, hahaha.

Materials

Loom: All-n-One Loom  Single knit with 33 pegs.

Yarn: Approx 100 yards of worsted weight yarn in color of choice. Worsted Weight yarn. Sample was worked with Cascade 220 Superwash Wool in Gray.

Notions: knitting tool, measuring tape.

Headband Pattern Directions

Note: Pattern by Tiffany Matthews. Converted to loom knitting by Isela Phelps with permission from Tiffany Matthews.

Cast on 9 sts

Row 1 (Going from right to left on your knitting loom): k1, *p1, k1; rep from * to end of row.

Row 2 (Go from left to right on the loom): k1, *p1, k1; rep from * to end of row.

Row 3: Repeat row 1

Row 4: Repeat row 2

Begin the increases:

Row 5: k1, p1, k1, p1, kf&b, p1, k1, p1, k1 (10 sts)

Row 6: k1, p1, k1, p1, k2, p1, k1, p1, k1 (two knit stitches are at the center of the row. You will increase BETWEEN these two knit stitches on the next row.)

Row 7: k1, p1, k1, p1, k1, m1b, k1, p1, k1, p1, k1 (11 sts)

Row 8: Work in the rib pattern across all the stitches, knit the knit stitches, purl the purl stitches.

Row 9: k1, p1, k1, p1, k1, pfb, k1, p1, k1, p1, k1 (12 sts)

Row 10: k1, p1, k1, p1, k1, p2, k1, p1, k1, p1, k1  (again, you will have two purl stitches next to each other right at the center of the row, you will increase BETWEEN these two stitches on the next row)

Row 11: k1, p1, k1, p1, k1, p1, m1f, p1, k1, p1, k1, p1, k1 (13 st)

Row 12: Work in the rib pattern across all the stitches

Continue to increase in this manner until your work measures 7” from the cast on edge. You should have 33 stitches on the needle.

Work in the rib pattern for another 4” (until you have 11” from the cast on edge—this is the place where you work less rows to make a smaller or longer headband)

Begin the decrease:

Row 1: [K1, P1] 7x, K1, P3tog, K1, [P1, K1] 7x (31 sts)

Row 2-4: Work in the rib pattern across all the stitches

Row 5: [K1, P1] 7x, K3tog, [P1, K1] 7x (29 sts)

Row 6-8: Work in the rib pattern across all the stitches

Continue to decrease in this manner—every other row that goes from right to left, k3tog or p3tog the two very center stitches, with the rest of the stitches being worked in rib stitch (knitting the knits purling the purls)–until you have 9 stitches remaining on the loom. Last 4 rows: work in rib stitch as established. Remove from the loom using the Basic Bind Off method leave the last stitch on the peg.

Transfer the last stitch to a crochet hook. Chain 4-6 stitches and connect them to the beginning of the BO edge (this makes the button loop so size it according to the size of your button).

*You may continue doing a decorative crochet edging. Single crochet around the entire headband edge. The entire crochet border is optional. It gives the edge a bit of a decorative look. But the headband looks fine without it. If you choose not to do it.

To make the headband wider, cast on extra stitches. To make it longer, add extra rows at the center.

LAL videos coming right up-3 videos just for you.

  • This is beautiful – is the flower crocheted?

  • Yes, the flower is crochet.

  • I love all your patterns. Do you have any adult women skirt or dress patterns? I’ve been searching for knitting boards and looms and can’t find any. I’ve found some for regular knitting, but I don’t know how to transfer that pattern for a loom or knitting board. Any advice would be helpful. Thank you!

  • Would you mind explaining kf&b and m1b please? Also pfb and m1f. If I get that far, I should be able to work the rest out. Thanks.

  • I’ve read and re read this to understand all the stitches before starting but I don’t get a couple of them. What is the kf&b, P2tog, K2tog and rib pattern. Also you don’t say if you are using a round or long straight loom. My grandkids/nieces would love this for Christmas but need a little more help …

    Thanks
    Debbie

  • I used the All-n-One loom. We have videos that demonstrate the kf&b, p2tog, and k2tog. The videos are here on the blog.

  • Gaye, we have videos that show the entire headband how it is made. Have you had a chance to look at them? http://knittingboardchat.com/blog/index.php/archives/1160

  • K, I just had a huge mess both times I tried this. I’m new with a loom (and knitting for that matter). My increases only went to the right but in your video it looks like your went both ways from the middle. The stitches on the right look OK but the ones to the left of center were all messed up, they were just straight across stitches, I’m so confused. I’d really like to learn this, can you offer any help?

  • Love headband pattern and the video is the greatest help. Thank you.

  • This is so cute I followed the video well until row 13. Can you explain what to do with this row do I go back and follow row 5-12 over and over until I get 33 pegs

  • Hi, can this pattern be done a round loom, as this is all I own at the moment,since I am fairly new at loom knitting. I love your headband pattern..thank you! Nadine

  • Yes, this can be done on any knitting loom. The pattern is worked as a flat panel, knitting back and forth in rows.

  • Really confusing, pretty though, the girl in the pic is really pretty

  • Not meaning to be rude by any means. However, are us loomers a bunch of whimps? I have wasted waaaaaay more time then should have been necessary to find adult dresses. I am a very brave new looked who love to have some options for spring. My daughter thinks I should be able to do anything. Frankly, I am starting to think I need to find pieces of patterns (a cape, T-shirt or sweater) connected to a piece of an afghan, for instance, to come up with something. Of course a dress may come in panels but does a beginner have to be an inventor while they learn? I know it’ s not your fault I am just frustrated. If you know of any sites please send them my way.
    Thanks, The Frustrated Hopeful Beginning Dress Loomer

  • Hello!! Love love love, this pattern. But would you by any chance have a pattern for the flower, or at least the name of it?? Thanks a million for sharing this!

  • The flower is a pattern I got from YouTube. I don’t remember the name of the pattern but it is all crochet.

  • I want to make a hat. K1p1 all i have is a 31peg loom. What do i do with the 31st peg

  • The only foloom i have is a 31 peg. I want to k1p1, but what do i do with the 31st peg.

  • You will just do a k1 on that peg. Do you want it to be completely ribbed–k1, p1 all throughout, and have small ribs throughout, if you do, you will just have 2 knits together (the 31st peg and the 1st).
