Faux Woven Cowl

Faux Woven Cowl 1

 

Faux Woven Cowl

The faux woven cowl gives the illusion of a woven project but it is all in the cabling technique. I first spotted a project at my knitting store with this awesome design, right away, I wanted to knit one of my very own, so I came home and sat down to figure it out. The use of the elongated stitches allows us to be able to do cables that are wider than four stitches. The cowl uses six stitches but using the same technique you can use up to eight stitches.

Pattern Information

Loom: All-n-One Knitting Loom

Yarn: 130 yards of super bulky yarn. Grand Rapide was used in sample (1 skein). Faux Woven Cowl Long

Notions: Knitting tool, tapestry needle, cable needle.

Abbreviations

K=knit stitch

YO=yarn over (ewrap the peg)

C6F=Cable involving six stitches, leans to the left.
Step 1: Leave the stitches from pegs 1, 2, 3 on the loom, take working yarn behind these three skipped pegs.
Step 2: Knit pegs 4, 5 and 6 (be sure to elongate the stitches prior to knitting them). Place these three stitches on a cable needle.
Step 3: Take yarn to the front of peg 1, knit peg 1, peg 2 and peg 3 (be sure to elongate the stitches prior to knitting them).
Step 4: Move the stitches just knitted on Step 3 to the following pegs: From peg 3 to peg 6, from peg 2 to peg 5, from peg 1 to peg 4.
Step 5: Place the stitches from cable needle on pegs 3, 2, and 1.

C6B=Cable involving six stitches, leans to the right.
Step 1: Place stitches from pegs 1, 2 and 3 onto cable needle (be sure to elongate these stitches prior to transferring them onto cable needle), drop the cable needle towards the back (center of the knitting loom).
Step 2: Take yarn to the front of peg 4. Knit peg 4 and move it to empty peg 1.
Step 3: Take yarn to the front of peg 5. Knit peg 5 and move it to empty peg 2.
Step 4: Take yarn to the front of peg 6. Knit peg 6 and move it to empty peg 3.
Step 5: Place stitches from cable needle back on the loom, on pegs 4, 5, and 6.
Step 6: Knit pegs 4, 5, 6.

Pattern Notes
Two pegs are used as one on the knitting loom to facilitate the use of super bulky yarn
E-wrap pegs to create an elongated stitch. Drop the extra wrap before crossing the stitches.
Cast on from right to left so first row is from left to right.
Use the yarn over cast on.

INSTRUCTIONS

Row 1: *K1, YO 1 (on same peg); rep from * to last peg.
Row 2: Prior to cabling, drop the YO to elongate the stitches. K3, *C6F; rep from * to last 3 sts, k3.
Row 3: *K1, YO 1 (on same peg); rep from * to last peg.
Row 4: Prior to cabling, drop the YO to elongate the stitches. *C6B; rep from * to end.

28″ Knitting Board…Diagonal Weave Eyeglass Case!

MKLawrie-Eyeglass-Case-1-All-in-One-Knitting-Board

This cute eyeglass case will keep your eyeglasses safe from scratches.  Make one for the purse and another for the
car.  The case also makes a great gift!

Skill Level
Intermediate

Knitting Loom:
28″ Knitting Loom with Peg Extenders

Yarn:
Lion Brand Recycled Cotton in Seagrass, Lion Brand Recycled Cotton in Marine

Tools
knit hook, size E crochet hook, tapestry needle, large button.

Finished Size
3.5” by 6.25”

1. Assemble the loom. Attach the loom extenders one section apart.

2. Warp the loom. Holding two strands of the marine recycled cotton yarn together, tie the yarn to a corner peg. Wrap the yarn around the next peg to one side of the corner peg, then around the next peg on the other side of the corner peg. Continue to work back and forth, wrapping the yarn around every peg. Tie the yarn to the last peg and cut leaving a 5″ tail.

3. Begin weaving. Turn the loom. Holding two strands of yarn together, one strand in Marine Recycled Cotton and one of each color, tie the yarn to the corner peg. Use a crochet hook or the knit hook to weave under then over the warp. Repeat the process, this time weaving over the strands you went under, then under the strands you went over. Continue until all of the pegs have been filled. Leave a long tail, cut the yarn, and tie it to the corner peg.

4. Taking it off of the loom. Using a single strand of Seagrass Recycled Cotton yarn, make a slip knot and place it on your crochet hook. Start at a corner peg, and work across the longer side first. Use the crochet hook to lift the weft off the peg, and onto the crochet hook. Yarn over the hook and pull through all the loops on the hook. There should now be one loop of yarn on the crochet hook and one peg bound off. Lengthen the loop on the crochet hook slightly, then bind off the the next peg in the same manner. Continue until all the pegs have been bound off and the woven piece has been removed from the pegs. Leave the loop of yarn on the crochet hook. Do not cut the yarn.

5. Add a button loop. Insert the crochet hook into the center of the first bound off stitch, yarn over and pull the loop through. Flip the work over to the back side, and work across the shorter side that you just bound off. Insert your hook between the next two bound off stitches, under the two threads. (See photo.) Yarn over the hook and pull through, yarn over again and pull through both loops on the hook; one single crochet stitch created. Repeat until you have created 8 single crochet stitches. Yarn over pull through; one chain stitch created. Make chain stitches until it is about twice the width of your button. Continue making single crochet stitches as you were before until you reach the corner. Cut and knot the yarn. Weave in all your yarn ends.

6. Seam the edges. Flip the fabric back over and fold the bottom half up 3.25” to create the body of the eyeglass case. Using the bind off stitches as a guide, sew up both sides of the eyeglass case with a tapestry needle and a single strand of yarn. Cut and knot the yarn. Weave in your ends.

7. Sew on the button. Use a single strand of yarn and the tapestry needle to sew on the button. Knot the yarn on the back side to secure, and weave in the ends.

Urban Cowl on the All-n-One Loom

UrbanCowl cropped
The Urban Cowl is one of ultimate favorite items to wear. It not only looks good with almost every piece of clothing, but it can also be knit in one afternoon. I wanted to make another one on Saturday and I wanted to use my All-n-One loom. So I sat down and realized that I could use 2 pegs as one to create a “bigger” stitch for my Malabrigo Rasta yarn.

The picture shown uses almost 2 skeins of Malabrigo Rasta, it goes around the neck twice. If you prefer, you can use 1 skein for a one loop cowl.

Warm, fast and easy were priority for this knit. I needed something that would look chunky and fashionable, something I could wear with my jeans, something that screamed urban style.

PATTERNUrbanCowl2

Knitting Loom
All-n-One loom, 30 pegs. You will use 2 pegs as 1.

Yarn
140 yds of Super Bulky weight wool yarn. Sample was knit using Malabrigo Rasta, 1.5 skeins.

Notions
Knitting tool, tapestry needle.

Gauge
Not important for this project

Abbreviations
k: knit stitch
p: Purl stitch
rep: Repeat
st: Stitch

INSTRUCTIONS

Cast on 15 stitches

Row 1: *k1, p1; rep from * to last st, k1

Row 2: *p1, k1; rep from * to the last st, p1

Repeat Row 1 and Row 2: until item measures 48 inches.
Bind off with basic bind off method.

Finishing
Seam bind off edge to cast on edge using mattress stitch.

To wear: wrap twice around neckline, or just wear it as a long scarf.

  • Yay! Thank you, thank you!!

  • Welcome :). The video is processing…according to YouTube 5 more minutes. :)

  • Thank you Isela! You are so awesome!

  • Thanks Isela. Love the colors on this one. Great video. :) Happy Thanksgiving All!!!!!

  • I would love to make something in between the urban cowl and summer elegance. I want to use thin yarn (something like a fake fur or eyelash type) with lots of space between the stitches. I have something I bought that is like the urban cowl but is 18′ wide so it is very stretchy and can be shaped different ways. Can you suggest a pattern that I could adjust. The one I have is is knitted like a scarf with the end on one sewn to the side of the end of the other. Would love suggestions!

    I don’t want it to be warm, just to dress up a plain top. Thanks for any help!

  • Thank you so much. Great looking cowl!
    Cheers

  • Thanks for showing this. I never thought of using two pegs for one stitch…what a wonderful idea.
    Love the yarn you used…the texture of your finished product…the way you can see every stitch so well when t is done this way!
    Thank you again.

  • I love this. It is very simple. Thanks for sharing.

  • Wonderful video, very well explained. Thank you for simplifying this for me.Can’t wait to get started.

Loom Knit Ruffle Scarf

Ruffles copy

I created this pattern back in November 2011 and I have been meaning since then to put a small video on how to use the KB looms with this type of yarn. Finally, I was able to get this project done.  The pattern is the same as I created back then, except in this video, I am using the Sashay yarn which has smaller hole openings. In this video, you will see me skip two opening and use the third, so in essence we are using every 3rd opening on the yarn to create the scarf.

DIRECTIONS

Locate the upper row of the mesh, the one with the bigger hole openings, you will be using this upper row to cast on and to knit. Before you begin, you may want to open a bit of the mesh to facilitate the knitting process. The work will come out through the center of the knitting loom (between the two rails).

Place 2 stitch markers on your knitting loom, one on peg 1  and the other on peg 6.

Foundation/Cast on Row: Place one loop on peg 1, *skip 2 opening, place the 3rd opening on the next peg; rep from * until 6 pegs have a loop on them.

Row 1:  Skip 2 openings, place the 3rd opening on the last peg, skip 2 openings, place the next opening on the 5th peg; repeat skipping 2 openings and placing the 3rd opening on the following peg. Each peg should have 2 loops on each peg. Lift the bottom loop off the peg, leaving only one loop on each peg.

Row 2: Move the stitches from one side of the board to the opposite side (see video on how this is done).
Skip 2 openings, place the 3rd opening on the first peg, skip 2 openings, place the next opening on the 2nd peg; repeat skipping 2 openings and placing the 3rd opening on the following peg. Each peg should have 2 loops on each peg. Lift the bottom loop off the peg, leaving only one loop on each peg.

Repeat Rows 1 and 2 until item measures desired length. Typically, a scarf takes one full skein. Picture shows a scarf with one full skein.

Bind off with basic bind off method. Weave ends in.

Tip on Tightening up an E-wrap Cast On

Most of us learn to loom knit with the e-wrap cast on method. We quickly realize that it produces a loopy cast on. Here is a tip that I have used for several years in a lot of my knits. Enjoy!
