Woven Table Decor

  Blending Weaving and Knitting!

Blending easy weaving with some knitted edges can create great home décor.  You can weave separate place mats for the table or connect several pieces to create a table runner as long as needed.  Here, we have created two sections and connected with one-color panel of knit.

table22

Loom: 28” knitting board + peg extenders, set up as a rectangular loom using both 20-peg extenders

Yarn:  Elite Verde, Sprout, 100% Organic Cotton, machine wash, lay flat to dry.  Each hank is aprox 100 grams or 109 yards.  Colors used are #4378 Brown (1 hank), #4325 Pink,  (1 hank), and #4316 Cream (1 hank).

 

Notions needed:  Knit hook, Crochet hook #4-5, 12” long wooden crochet hook, and darning needle

 

Size finished: 9 X 56 inches (each section is aprox. 28” long). Work as many as needed.

 

 

 

 

 

Instructions:

Choose the color that you want as the base.  Here we have used the brown yarn (yarn #1).  Start with a loop knot and place it on the first peg on the long side of the loom.  You are working across from one long board to the other.  Weave across all pegs.  End with another loop knot.  Keep the yarn taut, but with enough stretch so the size is maintained once off the loom. Do not use the 4 corner pegs of the loom. Your base yarn is set up.

Now, place a loop knot on the first peg of the extender using yarn 2, pink.  Use the long crochet hook in 3 sections to move the yarn across the base yarn and down to the opposite extender on first peg.  This is one continuous flow of the yarn of each color.  Work 4 pegs of pink yarn.

Once the pink yarn is complete, cut yarn and tie on the brown yarn to the pink yarn tail at peg.  Work 2 rows of brown yarn.  Cut brown, tie on the yarn #3 Cream at next peg.  Work 8 pegs back and forth in the cream yarn.  Do not be concerned with all the yarn tails.

Change back to the brown yarn for another 2 rows.  Cut and tie to the pink yarn.

Work last 4 pegs with pink to match the opposite side.  Knot the pink upon completion

by tying to the last peg or use a loop knot for easy removal. 

Edges (linear) along the long boards:  Choose the yarn color for the edges.  We decided to keep using the brown yarn. Use the short crochet hook and keep the weaving on the loom as you work.  Do not remove at this time.

Start at one end of the long boards.  Pick up the loop, from top to bottom, on the first peg and grab the working yarn.

 

table.edge1

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Make one more chain stitch on the hook.  Move the crochet hook to front of board and twist the hook so that the loop on it is twisted.  Pick up next loop and repeat.

Continue down the board until all pegs are secured with the crochet edge.  The edge will be on the outside of the loom.  Knot the yarn on last peg to secure or use loop knot.

Repeat the same edge on the other side of the loom so that both sides are completed.  Your woven piece should still be on all pegs.  The only open pegs are the ones at 4 corners of the loom.

 

Completing the ends with knitting: Once the long sides are complete and secure, you can work the short ends.  You may do this with knit and purl stitches on the loom, or move the loops to a #10.5 long knitting needle.  You will want to carefully remove the side edges off the pegs being careful not to remove the end loops until they are completed.  However you choose to knit off the ends, work with knit and purl rows.  Tie on the yarn at one end peg of a short side.  Add a stitch to the end pegs at beginning and at end of loom. You will be working on 22 pegs.  Work 2 rows in knit stitch, 1 purl row.  Repeat 3 times ending with a knit row. This is aprox 10 rows of knitting.  Bind off.  If you want it done in all knit stitches or all purl stitches, this can be a matter of choice. Once complete, draw in all yarn tails into the same color section and trim.

On the 2nd panel, you can just knit the one side edge.  The other end will be joined to the first panel and can be a bind off with the crochet hook.  If you choose to knit this edge also, you will create a wider middle section by sewing the 2 knit ends together.  If you have chosen to make place mats, be sure to knit off both ends.  As mentioned, you may have a longer table that you want your runner to fit.  You may work up as many woven panels as desired.  If you plan to do a 3rd panel, be sure to purchase a 2nd hank of the yarn that you are using for your base and edges.  3 panels will make a runner aprox 84” long.

You may want to block lightly, the knit sections, for nice even edges with the weaving.

Weaving is just another way to create home décor, tote bags, and scarves.  You can also experiment with many different types of media other than yarn.  Try cord, jute, and fabric yarn.

  • I have purchased the all in one loom and a pattern book with a turquoise slouchy hat on the cover. I want to make that hat! I know how to do the M1L but I cannot figure out how to go from 60 to 80 stitches! The directions are not clear. From what I have read it seems to be a problem for a lot of loom knitters out there. Where is the answer? I bought that book for that pattern and don’t think it’s fair that I cannot even get a answer. The store does not take a return for a pattern. Will anyone please help?

  • http://knittingboardchat.com/blog/index.php/archives/2083 Check out this post, it provides two methods of achieving this increase.

  • Isela ,Thank you ! The info on the slouchy hat was great,easy peasy now.Kari

  • 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.
