Loom knit hats and scarves
These ensembles are knitted with a garter stitch on a knitting loom. The first set shown with the hat has a tube knitted flower attached with a coordinating button.
Some of the other sets are knitted with the regular e-wrap stitch with brims.

    This is your first row of cast on stitches on 12 pegs. This makes a scarf that is about 2 inches wide. You can use more or less pegs if you choose.

    Now at this point it really doesn't matter if you start with either the purl or knit stitch. I always start the knit stitch first.
    Going back in the towards the first peg,wrap yarn from right across the last peg.

    Repeat steps 14 through 17 to last (12th) peg. Continue back and forth making sure that you make only the purl stitch when going from peg 1 to 12 (left to right) and the knit stitch when going from peg 12 back to 1 (right to left). This is the garter stitch.

    Rule of thumb on length of scarf, make scarf as long as you are tall.
    I usually measure mine standing up with the end of the scarf at my heel but not on the floor up to my shoulder.

    Step 23

    To start hat, cast on all pegs on green loom (for adultn size hat) same on starting scarf.
    The difference here is now you won't be going back and forth, but in one direction only.
    For second row, work all the way around in either knit or purl stitch of your choice for the second row (I always start with the knit stitch).
    I use the anchoring peg as the starting point with the right peg being the first stitch working counter clockwise on loom. The peg to the left is the last stitch for the row, which is where you start the next row. So, after casting on the first row, my second row starting at the first peg on the right of the anchoring peg is where I start the knit row until I get to the last peg that is on the left side of the anchoring peg. Then the third row is starting again at the first peg on the right with the purl stitch and so on.
    Whew, hope that wasn't too confusing.
    NOTE: This stitch works for left or right handed individuals. The instructions are for right handed use, just reverse if you are left handed, working clockwise on loom.

    If you loose your place or forget which stitch your are doing for a row, if the yarn is higher than the stitch before it, then this the knit stitch.

    Step 25

    It's a purl stitch if it's lower than the stitch before it.

  • Step 26

    Sorry, but I got anxious and didn't get pix for casting off on the hat.
    But continue around with rows until you get the desired size of your hat I ususally do about 45 to 50 rows.
    With the working yarn start with wrapping it around the first peg as though you are making a knit stitch, removing both loops from peg, place new loop on next peg, which is still the working yarn and continue this step until all stitches are off loom. The working yarn will double with loop at this point. Cut tail at 4 to 5 inches and pull it through loop and pull tight to close top of hat. Secure tail inside of hat. Hope that was clear enough to understand. I will post a pic when I make another hat for casting off. Sorry guys.

Yeah Nikki, I tend to use the garter stitch pattern when working on my looms, which requires you to wrap one peg at a time. The e-wrap technique is working all the way around the loom before you wrap over the looped pegs, the same way you make the small tube with a 4 to 6 peg loom.
Would love to see some of your work. BTW, welcome to CO+K!!

I love this, although I'm a bit confused about the knit and purling, I just usually put the wool on (for the first row), then the wool above the loop, and bring the loop that was on the loom over the wool and off, then go round in a circle. On a 4 peg loom it makes a small sort of tube, bigger ones a bigger circle. I can't work out if this is similar to the way you said to do it or not.
P.S. I just bought myself a set of 4 different sized looms for £12 Happy I now have big ones instead of small ones!!

Thanks mangolicious, the yarn I used is Red Heart Cherry Chip varigated yarn, (hence the name of the set). The looms I used came in a set together with a total of 4 looms in different sizes. Here in the States you can get these at most craft stores or Wal-mart, which is where I got mine for only $12 bucks. I have 2 sets. Knitting with looms is way easier than knitting with needles.
