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.

  • 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.

Last Minute Slouchy Hat: How to videos

Video Loom-a-long for the Last Minute Slouchy Hat is up!Kids and all n one loom 022

In part one, we cover set up of the loom and we work through the first 8 rounds of the hat. At the end of Part I, you will have the brim done–the part with the ribbing of the hat.

Gather your materials and let’s get started!

 

 

 

 

Last Minute Slouchy Hat Loom-Along. In part 1, we covered the first 8 rounds of the pattern. In Slouchy Hat 018part 2, we will cover Rounds 9-12.

Round 9: *yo, k2tog; rep from * to the end of round.
(How to:  *Move the loop from the first peg over to the second peg, first peg is empty, second peg has 2 loops on it. E-wrap the first peg thus creating the YO. Then ewrap the second peg, lift the bottommost two loops off the peg. Repeat from * to the end of round)

Round 10: Knit with the e-wrap method.

Round 11: Move stitch marker one peg to the left (peg 2). This peg (peg 2) becomes Peg 1.  *yo, k2tog; rep from * to the end of round. (How to: see Row 9 on the break down).

Round 12: Knit with the e-wrap method.

 

Part 3 will be posted next week–it will cover the Gather Bind off.

  • I currently have 3 sizes of your knitting boards plus the sock loom. I haven’t gotten a chance to make a pair socks yet but have started. As you can see on my website I have been busy making mostly jewelry.

    I love the boards and have made dish clothes and washcloths. Started an afghan and working on that I am glad to see the pattern for the slouch hat I have wanted one. good luck to u thanks for what all u do

    Carole

  • I have my very own all-in-one loom now (hooray!) and am getting ready to start this hat project. I want to increase the size a bit, since my head is a little bigger than average and I want to make sure it is still nice and slouchy…so I was wondering what the stitch/peg multiple is on this hat. Thanks for any help! : D

  • Slouchy hats are so popular these days. It’s fun to see that it can be made on this board!

  • I am making the slouchy hat when i move over on row 11 to left as peg 1 and keep moving to the left the yarn yarn is now about 3 inches behind pegs iam about mid way down the board and not sure if i just keep skipping pegs and move to left as peg 1 it just looks different

  • Sandy,
    Can you take a picture of this and posted somehow so that we can see it? Your yarn shouldn’t be 3 inches long behind the knitting. It should only be skipping one peg every two rows or so.

  • I am working on the slouchy hat, and find the video very helpful and easy to follow. The moving of the stitch marker to the left, after the e wrap is done. Is this what makes the hat have that ‘slouchy’ look?

    Back to work!

  • All I have are the Looms & Threads round set, can you tell me how to make this on one of those? I have a 36 and 41 peg round. I love your videos you have taught me so much

  • where is video 3?? im ready to bind off and not sure how.

  • There is no video 3 at this moment. When I was creating these videos my camera suffered death and video #3 never made it out alive. I haven’t had the chance to redo it since I got my new camera. However, the bind off is simple, it is just a gather bind off, just like any other hat, nothing special.

Last Minute Slouchy Hat Pattern

Slouchy HatIt was Tuesday morning and it was my turn to carpool the kids to school. I was running around like crazy that morning and I hadn’t even had a chance to change out of my pajamas. 6 kids were in the car waiting for me and the clock was ticking. I didn’t had a chance to go upstairs and brush my hair and make myself look half-decent, but as I was going out the door, I saw my slouchy hat and put it on. In a second, I went from looking disheveled to presentable and that my friend’s is how the name of the slouchy hat came to be. It is my last minute emergency tool! I love it! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Materials

Loom: All-n-One Loom

Stitches: k, p, e-wrap, k2tog, yo.

Yarn: 130 yards of worsted weight
yarn. Araucania Aysen was used in sample (Less than 1 skein).

Notions: Knitting tool, tapestry
needle, and removable stitch marker.

Gauge: 8.5 sts= 2 inches in double ribbing

Size: Fits up to a head circumference of about 21 inches.

Level: Intermediate

Notes: Working clockwise around the knititng loom. The ribbing section is done with the knit Allnone-2stitch, may substitute with the flat stitch or the u-stitch. The rest of the hat is done with the e-wrap stitch. Important: Note that on Round 11, we move the first stitch one place to the left (clockwise) to keep the pattern slanted. We will use the stitch marker to keep track of our new Peg 1 position. We keep moving it after each pattern repeat so each time you do a row 11, you move the stitch marker over to mark the new Peg 1 position.

Knitting Loom Settings: set the knitting loom to 80 pegs (35 on each of the long rails and the two sliders). 

Abbreviations:
k=knit stitch
p=purl stitch
k2tog=knit two stitches together
yo= yarn over (simply e-wrap the peg that needs the yarn over)

Directions

Cast on 80 stitches, join to work in the round. Place stitch marker on 1st peg.

Round 1-8: *k2, p2; rep from * to the end of round.

Round 9: *yo, k2tog; rep from * to the end of round.
(How to:  *Move the loop from the first peg over to the second peg, first peg is empty, second peg has 2 loops on it. E-wrap the first peg thus creating the YO. Then ewrap the second peg, lift the bottommost two loops off the peg. Repeat from * to the end of round)

Round 10 and 12: Knit with the e-wrap method.

Round 11:  Move stitch marker one peg to the left (peg 2). This peg (peg 2) becomes Peg 1.  *yo, k2tog; rep from * to the end of round. (How to: see Row 9 on the break down).

Round 12: Knit with the e-wrap method.

Repeat Rounds 9-12: until item measures 9 inches from cast on edge.

Bind off with gather removal method.

Steam block to open the lace, be careful not to steam the ribbing portion as this will loosen the stitches.
