Aria Messy Bun Beanie

Let’s start the year off by going back to basics with a twist! This beanie incorporates the ewrap knit stitch, as well as the knit stitch and the purl stitch. Want to be more chic, skip the cinching of the top and create a messy bun beanie! 

LOOM:  White Hat Loom (72 pegs) from Premium Hat loom set.

YARN:  Approx 130  yds of worsted weight merino wool. Red Heart Chic Sheep in Poolside was used in sample (3.5oz/100 grams | 186 yds/170m)

NOTIONS:  Knitting tool, tapestry needle.

GAUGE: 9 sts x 16 rows= 2 inches

SIZE:  Fits head up to 21” in circumference.

ABBREVIATIONS

Ek=ewrap knit

K=knit stitch

P=purl stitch

Rnd(s)=Round(s)

Approx=Approximately

INSTRUCTIONS

Cast on 72 sts, join to work in the rnd.

Rnd 1-10: *ek1, p1; rep from * to end.

Rnd 11: p to end of rnd.

Rnd 12-21: *ek1, p1; rep from * to end.

Rnd 22: Pick up cast on row and place the stitches back on the loom. K to end of rnd.

Rnd 23: *k3, p1; rep from * to end.

Rnd 24: k2, p1, *k3, p1; rep from * to last st, k1.

Rnd 25: k1, p1, *k3, p1; rep from * to last 2 sts, k2.

Rnd 26:  *p1, k3; rep from * to end.

Repeat Rnds 23-26 until item measures desired length (approx 7 inches from cast on edge).

To create a regular beanie (top closed): Move every loop from every odd numbered peg to its neighbor (1 to 2, 3 to 4, etc.). Once every other peg has 2 loops on it, bind off with basic bind off method.

To create a Messy Bun Beanie (top open): Remove all the stitches from the loom onto a piece of contrasting color yarn. Single crochet close the opening by grabbing three stitches each time all the way around. Follow this link to a video demonstrating this step.

Weave all ends in, block if necessary.

  • What is the gauge of the loom being used in this pattern

  • The sample used the white loom from the Premium set–some would consider it regular gauge or small gauge.

  • Were all knit stitches e-wrapped?

  • No, only the ones on the brim. The pattern has these as “ek”. I believe Rounds 1-21.

Spruce Berry Mittens

When the snow falls you’ll be ready to play with super warm mittens. Stylish enough for any occasion!


LOOM: ‘Rotating’ Double Knit Loom, set up for flat panel in double knit. Other looms may be used with 34+ double stitches.

STITCHES: Rib, Stockinette and Figure 8 for FDL design

YARN: Premier Serenity Chunky Tweed, #5, Color Cypress (G), 1-1/2 skeins. Premier Serenity Chunky, color Red Ochre (R), 1 skein and Pristine, white (W), 1 Skein. 100% Acrylic, 109 yds per skein. Machine wash, warm.

NOTIONS: Knit hook, Crochet hook, Large Darning Needle

SIZE: Adult med/large (7-7.5” from wrist to tip of middle finger)

GAUGE: 5 sts X 9 rows=2 inches in stockinette

ABBREVIATIONS
St (sts)=stitch (stitches), Inc=increase, dec=decrease,

Techniques: Increase (inc)-move loops over to create an empty peg. Lift loop from previous row on adjacent peg onto empty peg to create a new stitch.

  

 

 

 

Decrease (dec)-lift loop on one peg onto adjacent peg. This creates an empty peg and a peg with 2 loops. Shift all loops over to close in the empty peg. This removes the stitch. When hooking over, lift both loops as one.

 

 

 

 

Note: When instructed to work an inc or dec, always follow this with a weave and hook over to complete the row. It will say, “work row”.

INSTRUCTIONS

Cast On in Rib stitch. (22) stitches with G yarn. Lay anchor yarn over stitches.

Rows 1-10: Work in Rib stitch. Rest of mitten will be worked in stockinette stitch.

Work 1 row in Stockinette with G yarn.

Add W yarn at 2nd stitch and knot. Cut G yarn.

Work 2 rows in stockinette with W yarn. Increase 1 stitch at each end at 3rd stitch after the 2nd row is complete. Work this row.
Work one additional row. Total W rows=4.

Add G yarn, and work 1 row.

Pick up W yarn, and work 1 row. Cut W yarn.

Add G yarn, and work 2 rows. After 2nd G row, inc 1 st each end. Work row. Cut G yarn.

Add W yarn, and work 3 rows. On rows 2 and 3, inc 1 stitch each end, and work rows.

There are now 30 stitches on the loom. Cut and knot the W yarn.

Add G yarn and work 2 rows.
Increase 4 stitches. Move 6 sts out from each end creating one empty at each end at peg 7 and peg 23. Then move the end 3 stitches out to create 2 more empty pegs. Be sure to add the new stitches from previous row onto empty pegs.
You now have 34 stitches on the loom.

Work 2 additional rows in G yarn.

THUMB

The thumb is worked on center 10 stitches. They will remain on the loom as you continue to work in flat panel. Leave G yarn attached at beginning of loom. Add R yarn at peg 13 or 14 for thumb stitches.

 

Work 10 rows in center of loom with R yarn. After each row, simply push down in center of loom to move the thumb stitches down.

Once complete, bind off the 10 sts with a dec: Move loop 1 onto peg 2, loop 3 onto peg 4, loop 5 onto peg 6, 7 onto peg 8, 9 onto peg 10. You have 5 pegs with 2 loops each. Move them together to center.

Cut R yarn with 6” yarn tail. Place yarn on darning needle and remove the thumb stitches to yarn. This will hold them until you are ready to sew the mitten. Push the thumb down so that it is below the loom.

The mitten is worked on the remaining 24 sts, 12 on each side of thumb.
Slowly, move the stitches from each side to meet in center. Be sure to move the 12 inner sts to line up with the 12 outer sts. Do same thing to other side. Once all sts are moved to meet in center, do a reinforcement twist on st 12 and st 13 by crossing them.
This twist will reinforce the base of thumb.

Work 2 additional rows in G yarn on the 24 sts.
Do increase at st 3 and st 22 after 2nd row of G is complete. Cut G yarn. There are now 26 sts on the loom.

Add W yarn at 2nd peg. Work 2 rows in W yarn. Leave W yarn attached.

Add R yarn at peg 2 by tying it in center between the rows of pegs.
Work 3 rows with W and R yarn to complete the Fleur de Lis pattern.

Fleur de Lis There are five R designs, worked in 3 rows.
Each has: Row 1 with a center stitch,
Row 2 with 3 stitches,
Row 3 has 1 center stitch.
There are 2 stitches between the designs at center sts. Work all R sts in Figure 8 stitch, and then add the W yarn in stockinette.

It goes like this:
Row 1 & 3: Wrap st 4, 9, 14, 19, 24 with R yarn in Figure 8. Lay R yarn down but do not cut. Work remaining pegs with W yarn in stockinette. Hook over.
Row 2: Wrap sts 3,4,5, -8,9,10,-13,14,15,-18,19, 20, -23, 24, 25 with R yarn in Figure 8. Work remaining pegs with W yarn in stockinette.

You will note that the Figure 8 wrap is only moving R to L, or L to R. The yarn tail will end at R end of loom after the 3 rows. Cut R yarn.

Work 2 rows with W yarn. You can tie the R yarn tail onto the W yarn at R side at next row. Cut W yarn and tie on G yarn.

 

 

 

 

 

Work 4 rows of G yarn.

Decrease row (dec):  Dec by 4 sts at each of the dec rows. Work the dec on peg 3 from each end, and center 2 pegs. This leaves 4 empty pegs, 1 at each end and 2 in center. Shift the loops to close in the empty pegs. Work row.

Work one regular row with G yarn. (no dec)
Next 2 rows, do dec rows and work each row.
Work one regular row.
Work 1 dec row. Work row.
Now 10 sts on loom. Cut G yarn with 10” yarn tail.

Removing the mitten from loom: Move the loops from inner loom to outer loom so that the inner loom is empty. Hook over to have only one loop on each of the 10 pegs. Shift loop from peg 1 onto peg 2, 3 to 4, 5 to 6, 7 to 8, 9 to 10. Move stitches towards center. Place yarn tail on darning needle and pick up all loops so that they are on the yarn and free of the loom. Remove the mitten.

Sewing and Finishing
Once the mitten is off the loom stretch it out so that the inc and dec are even and well shaped. Fold in half. The sewing will look best if you use the same color yarn as the stripes dictate. Start with the thumb and sew the R sts together with the yarn tail. Once you get to the G open area at base of thumb, change to G yarn. Sew this securely.

Move to top of mitten and draw the bind off sts up with yarn tail, Knot. Continue with G yarn until you get to the W fleur de lis section. Change to W yarn and do all the W sections. Knot each one. Use G yarn to complete the sewing down to the cuff. Be sure to match the color sections for a professional looking mitten. If you have any yarn tails to cut and weave into knitting, do these before sewing the cuff. Once the cuff is closed up, it will be more difficult to get into the inside to trim yarn tails. Once complete, you will repeat all instructions for the 2nd mitten.

4 Comments

  • What are dimensions of this Scarf or what is it called Isela ? I don’t have a zippy by would like to work it on knitting board,

  • Can it be done in A IO?

  • You could adapt it to the AIO. You will need to cast on a multiple of 4 (like 104 pegs). Use 1 strand of worsted weight yarn. Follow pattern as is…you may want the garter edges wider too.

  • It is about 11 inches in height and about 11 inches in width when laid flat.

Double Knit Bear Beanie

Designed by Bethany A Dailey

Stay cozy this winter with a double knit hat that evokes a little woodland charm! Knit this hat’s bear in white and it looks like a polar bear, in brown and it takes on the feel of an evergreen forest creature.

LOOM: Rotating Double Knit Loom

YARN: approx. 275 yards super bulky yarn. Sample used approx. 200 yrds MC and 75 yrds CC of Knit Picks Brava Bulky (blue/white sample), 136 yrds, 100% acrylic, in white and denim, and Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Bulky (cream/brown sample) 137 yrds, 100% wool, in white and chocolate.

NOTIONS: loom tool, yarn needle, removable stitch marker, crochet hook, scissors, yarn bobbins (optional)

GAUGE: 6 sts x 11 rows = 2 inches in double knit stockinette

SIZE: junior/sm adult. (18″ circumference (but stretches to wider width) x 8.5” height

ABBREVIATIONS

Approx=approximately

MC=main color

CC=contrast color

k=knit stitch

dks=double knit stockinette

dkr=double knit ribbing

CO=cast on

BO=bind off

KO=knit off

WY=working yarn

st(s)=stitch(es)

rnd(s)=round(s)

PATTERN NOTES

One strand held throughout.

It might be helpful to use masking tape around the outside of the loom to temporarily number the pegs so that the colorwork chart can be more easily followed.

In the colorwork chart, there are color sections that are separated by more than one stitch during the course of a row. In these instances, it is recommended to use a separate yarn ball to switch colors. This helps the colorwork stand out with the most clarity.  Small little balls can be wound from the main skeins, or by using some sort of yarn bobbin for ease of use. There will be need for 2 extra little balls of each color during the working of the chart, plus both skeins of MC and 1 of CC.

The samples were cast on in a counterclockwise direction, but the colorwork chart’s stitches were still followed from right to left.  This resulted in a mirror image of the bear pattern.  If an exact replica of the chart is desired, simply cast on going in a clockwise direction and follow the chart from right to left.

For Instructions on how to create the Double Knit Ribbing and Stockinette Stitches on the Rotating Double Knit Loom, see the following tutorial:  http://blog.knittingboard.com/archives/8174

COLORWORK CHART
(Click on the chart to view it larger)

INSTRUCTIONS 

Using MC, CO to all 52 pegs to work in the round using the Double Knit Ribbing method (dkr). Use an anchor yarn after all pegs have been wrapped once.

Rounds 1-6:  MC, dkr all pegs.

Round 7:  MC, wrap using Double Knit Stockinette (dks) method across every other peg, beginning with the 1st front peg, during the first wrapping round. CO CC and dks on all remaining pegs during the second wrapping round. KO all pegs.

Round 8: CC, dks across every other peg, beginning with the 1st front peg, during the first wrapping round. Pick up MC and dks on all remaining pegs during the second wrapping round. KO all pegs.

Round 9: MC, dks on all pegs.

Rounds 10-24: Follow colorwork chart to create bear design. At each place where a new yarn color will be added (*see Pattern Notes), twist yarns so that the new color to be used is coming up through the “hole” of the last wrap of the current color.  Turn and wrap current color back to the beginning of that color’s smaller section.  Pick up the next color in line and repeat this wrapping process.  Continue in this method until the round is complete and all colors designated by the chart have been wrapped and KO.

Round 25: MC, dks on all pegs.

Rounds 26 & 27: repeat Rounds 7 & 8.

Rounds 28-38: repeat Rounds 1-6.

FINISHING

Wrap WY around loom 2 times and cut at this point.  Work a modified Drawstring BO, or Flat Drawstring CO following the steps below:

-Place yarn needle on yarn tail and sew through all inner loom’s stitches in the same direction as knitting.

-Place a removable stitch marker at this point of the yarn tail (can be as simple as a piece of tied on scrap yarn).

-Sew through all the front loom’s stitches.

-Remove hat from loom.

-Cinch in securely all the inner loom’s stitches by pulling the yarn tail at the place before the stitch marker.

-While holding all the inner loom’s stitches secure, cinch in all the outer loom’s stitches. Remove the stitch marker at the last moment and tighten all stitches at once.

-Pull yarn needle to the inside of the hat, give one more careful pull to tighten all stitches, and knot securely in place.

If desired, an eye for the bear can be placed at the stitch indicated on the chart either by using a duplicate stitch, or by pulling a length of yarn from the inside of the hat to the outside, making a knot, and then pulling back through to the inside.

If desired, create pompom using both colors of yarn, and attach at the top of the hat.

Weave in all ends and trim close to work.

Below is a Playlist to view this design being worked in its entirety. Come and loom along with me! 🙂

  • love the hat Bethany for the optional pom pom what is the size of it? Don’t want one too big or one to small thanks

  • Hi Kathy! 🙂

    It is really up to your own preference what size pom pom you create. I just spotted a Bear Beanie knit by someone who used a pom pom that was a little bit smaller than the one I used and it also looked really cute! I will tell you that I used the box of a specialty chocolate bar (Ghirardelli, I think) to make my pom pom wraps, so anything goes, I think, haha! 😉

Gauge:  4 rounds=1″

 

Abbreviations

St (sts)=stitch (stitches)   aprox=approximately  Rnd(s)=round(s)

Hat Design:

Hat is worked in Rib Stitch. Total of 32 rounds unless deeper hat is desired. Each rib is 2 sts.  Cables consist of 8 stitches or 4 sets of Ribs.  There is a total of 4 Cable sections in hat.

Break down…

  1. Work Twist #1 on all cables and work round.
  2. Rib stitch (3 rounds)
  3. Work Twist #2 on all cables and work round.
  4. Rib Stitch (3 rounds)

Place colored rubber band on each set of 8 sts cables before beginning.  There are 4 of these sections. Sequence:  4st, 8 st cable, 6st, 8 st cable, 4 st, 8 st cable, 6 st, 8 st cable.  Place one rubber band around pegs for each 8 st cable, for markers.

#1 Twist: Each cable design consists of 4 ribs or 8 sts.  Be sure to pick up the correct stitches to keep the ribs consistent.  Twist only the sts on the outer loom.  Place markers or rubber band on each set of 8 sts.

Working pegs 1-4. Lift first 2 sts, 1 and 2 (one rib) and hold on double hook. With another hook, move sts 3 and 4 onto pegs 1 and peg 2.   Now, place st 1 and 2 from double hook onto peg 3 and peg 4.

 

Working pegs 5-8. Do another twist (2 ribs).  Then repeat the process on all sets of 8 sts marked with rubber bands.

 

 

 

 

 

 

#2 Twist:  Start with 2nd rib.  You will be twisting the stitches in the opposite direction.

Working pegs 1-4. Lift the 2 sts on pegs 3 and peg 4 and hold on double hook. Move sts 1 and 2 onto pegs 3 and peg 4.  Now, place sts from double hook onto pegs 1 and 2.

Repeat this process on all sets of 8 sts marked with rubber bands.

Finished Twist #2

 

Hints:  Work in loose tension especially the row before each twist row.

Work hook over on inner loom first as this loosens tension.  Then, work the hook over on the outer loom.

 

 

 

 

 

INSTRUCTIONS

Cast On all 52 pegs to work in the round in Rib stitch.  Lay anchor yarn and allow ends to dangle below the looms.

Rnds 1-6:  Work in Rib stitch for the brim of hat.

Rnd 7:  Work Twist #1 cable on all 4 cable sections (8 sts each).  Weave the round in rib stitch over all pegs including the cable twists and hook over.

Rnd 8-9-10:  Rib stitch

Rnd 11:  Twist #2 cable on all 4 cable sections.  Work the rnd in rib stitch.

Rnd 12-13-14:  Rib stitch

Rnd 15:  Twist #1 cable on all 4 cable sections.  Work rnd in rib stitch.

Rnd 16-17-18:  Rib stitch

Rnd 19:  Twist #2 cable on all 4 cable sections.  Work rnd in rib stitch.

Rnd 20-21-22:  Rib stitch

Rnd 23:  Twist #1 cable on all 4 cable sections.  Work rnd in rib stitch.

Rnd 24-25-26:  Rib Stitch

Rnd 27:  Twist #2 cable on all 4 cable sections.  Work rnd in rib stitch.

Rnd 28-29-30-31-32:  Rib stitch

Bind Off using Rib Bind Off method: Maintain a yarn tail of aprox 12-14”.  Keep the 2 rib sts together.  Place st 1 on st 2 as if to do decrease.  This needs to be the 2 sts of one rib.  Do this all around the loom on both looms.  You will have every other peg with 2 loops.  Lift bottom over top so that there is just one loop on every other peg. Now, bring the loops from inner loom to outer loom so that there are again 2 loops on every other peg on outer loom.  Use tapestry needle and yarn tail to work around the loom and pick up the loops on the pegs, so that hat is free of the loom, and all loops are secure on the yarn.  Lift hat off loom.  Draw up the top of hat.  Go around the top of hat a 2nd time to secure a snug closure.  Knot the yarn, and weave in ends.

Bind off at Anchor yarn:  With the crochet hook, pick up both loops of one rib at yarn tail.  Pull one thru the other.  Pick up next loop of next rib, and pull one closest to hook thru the other.  Do this loosely around entire brim of hat.  Once complete, knot last loop with yarn tail and weave in ends.  Gently pull out the anchor yarn.

Finish hat with a happy big pompom.  Use some different yarns of shades of blue or peacock blue and maybe some different weights.  Wrap about 40 times around cardboard.  Tie the pompom, cut and trim.  Tie to top of your hat for a fun look.

A stitch pattern breakdown is provided at the end of the pattern. Recommend to try out the stitch pattern first before embarking on the project.

Chart provided if you prefer to work from a chart. Chart shows the stitch pattern over 18 pegs and from Row 1-Row 12 of the stitch pattern.

INSTRUCTIONS

Edging

Next row: p to end of row.

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

Steam block to measurements.

Secure 3 buttons along the side of the scarf. See picture below for placement.

How to do Row 5

To facilitate the stitch pattern breakdown, we will concentrate on the 18 stitches of the lace stitch pattern. The instructions below will start on peg 6 of your loom. On Row 5, the lace row, the first 5 pegs are knitted. The stitch pattern begins on Peg 6—for the purpose of this demonstration, peg 6 will be called peg 1.

  • Move loop from peg 1 to peg 2. Two loops on peg 2. Knit peg 2. Move loop from peg 2 to peg 1.
  • Move loop from peg 3 to peg 4. Two loops on peg 4. Knit peg 4. Move loop from peg 4 to peg 2.
  • Move loop from peg 5 to peg 6. Two loops on peg 6. Knit peg 6. Move loop from peg 6 to peg 3.
  • Pegs 4, 5, and 6 are empty.
  • Move loop from peg 7 to peg 5.
  • Move loop from peg 8 to peg 7.
  • Ewrap peg 4, knit peg 5.
  • Ewrap peg 6, knit peg 7.
  • Ewrap peg 8, knit peg 9.
  • Remove loop from peg 18 and hold it momentarily. Move loop from peg 17 over to peg 18. Place loop you are holding back on peg 18.
  • Remove loop from peg 16 and hold it momentarily. Move loop from peg 15 over to peg 17. Place loop you are holding on peg 17.
  • Remove loop from peg 14 and hold it momentarily. Move loop from peg 13 over to peg 16. Place loop you are holding on peg 16.
  • Move loop from peg 12 to peg 15.
  • Move loop from peg 11 to peg 13.
  • Move loop from peg 10 to peg 11.
  • Ewrap peg 10, knit peg 11.
  • Ewrap peg 12, knit peg 13.
  • Ewrap peg 14, knit peg 15.
  • Knit to the end of the row (the pegs that have 2 loops on them (pegs 16, 17 and 18) treat both loops as one loop).

Special note: pegs 4, 6, 8, 10, 12 and 14 should have been ewrapped (yarn over).

Repeat these instructions every 18 pegs. I recommend getting masking tape and marking your knitting loom (on the masking tape) 1-18, three times—the stitch pattern repeats itself 3 times around the loom. Pegs 1-5 are not part of the stitch pattern, pegs 60-64 are also not part of the stitch pattern.

Alternate Rib Hat

Loom: ‘Rotating’ Double Knit Loom, set up for double knitting.

Yarn:  Knit Picks Preciosa Tonal, 100% Merino Wool, worsted weight, 1skein.  Color ‘Canary’ in sample.

Stitches: Rib, Alternate Rib

Notions:  Knit hook, Crochet hook, one stitch marker (optional)

 Size:  Average Adult

Pattern notes:  Hat brim is knit in the rib stitch. The rest of the hat is knit in the rib and alternating rib stitch. Work by alternating these 2 stitches, round 1 and round 2 until hat length complete.

 

INSTRUCTIONS

Place the stitch marker on beginning peg, if desired, or use arrow. Cast On in stockinette stitch.  Lay anchor yarn around stitches between the looms.

Rounds 1-8:  Work rib stitch until end of round.

Round 9: Work alternate rib, until end of round.

Round 10:  Work rib stitch until end of round.

Repeat rounds 9 and 10 until you have a total length of approximately

8-8.5” from brim edge.  Complete the knitting with a row of rib stitch.

See photos below for weaving patterns for the Rib and Alternate Rib Stitch. The blue yarn show the ribbing, and yellow yarn shows the alternate rib.

 

             RIB STITCH

Beginning of round one

End of round one

End of round two

              ALTERNATE RIB

Beginning of the round one

End of round one

Once the knit is desired length, you are ready to bind off.  Move loops from inner loom to outer loom so that each peg on outer loom has 2 loops, and the inner loom is empty, hook over, bottom loop over top.  Now, one loop remains on each peg on outer loom.

Cut the working yarn coming from the project, leaving about 16-20 inches of yarn to use for the gathering process.

Thread the yarn tail through the eye of a tapestry needle. Pass the needle up and under the first stitch on the loom. Remove the stitch from the peg and leave it on the yarn tail. Go to the next peg and remove the stitch from the peg with the needle. This stitch will also rest on the yarn tail. Continue working around the loom until all the stitches have been removed and are secured on the yarn tail.

Gently pull on the yarn tail, cinching the top of the item closed. Pass the needle through the center of the gathered stitches and turn the hat inside out. Do a few securing stitches. Knot your yarn and weave in the tail.

Bind off the cast on stitches at anchor yarn with crochet hook for a completed hat.

Polemonium Hat

Designed by Renita Harvey

Love the Jacob’s Ladder technique in crochet but don’t know how to crochet?  Try the new method of chaining loops developed by Renita Harvey that achieves the same design feature on a stockinette background by knitting this hat! 

Amaze your friends and family with this fun hat that incorporates both the braided chain loops and color changes.  Changing the color after each round of chain loops gives the “ladder” a more visible appearance.  Or use a self-striping yarn with long color changes to avoid changing colors manually.  This hat is also a great pattern for school and team colors as well as seasonal color combinations. 

The Polemonium Hat is easier than it appears making it a great pattern for those wanting to up their loom knitting game.

Knit on the All-n-One Loom, the Polemonium Hat has a decreased crown bringing all the “ladders” or braids together at the top achieving a nice clean finish.

  • Very, very pretty Renita!

  • This is a fantastic design, Renita! Love it! ?

  • Can this pattern be made on the Rotating Board using 1 ring or even better both rings.
    Thanks

  • This is a very pretty and educational pattern. I tempted to go outside my basic stitches comfort zone.
    I’m going to start small, making a baby hat.
    Thank you for making this patter.

  • Thank you, Bethany!

  • Gail,
    This pattern is designed to be decreased at the top which is why it is written for the All-n-One loom. While it could be adapted to be made on the DKL, it couldn’t be decreased for the crown, and another way to finish off the braids would need to be devised. It really couldn’t be made with both rings on the DKL.

Faire Isle Beanie

Finally, a warm, stylish beanie that will be equally stunning on 5th Avenue or at the high school football game! Fair Isle is a knitting technique that uses multiple strands of different colored yarn to create intricate knit patterns. This hat will quickly become a staple accessory in your wardrobe!

LOOM: ‘Premium’ Round Loom Set (Large, 80 peg loom)

YARN: Worsted Weight (#4)

Red Hearts Super Saver (100% Acrylic) used in sample

Color A: approximately 60 g/110 yds (Soft Navy used in sample)

Color B: approximately 20 g/37 yds (Charcoal used in sample)

SIZE: Adult Unisex

COMPLEXITY: Late beginner to early intermediate

ABBREVIATIONS

st(s): Stitch(es)

rnd: Round

ek: E-wrap knit stitch

rep: Repeat

INSTRUCTIONS

Because this pattern is worked in the round, the pattern may be slightly staggered by one row between the first and last stitches in the round. This is normal and should be expected.

Note: A chart is located at the bottom of the pattern for your convenience. If using the chart, starting from the bottom, repeat the chart 16 times until you reach the end of each row. Then move up to the next row. Refer to the pattern for instructions between rows.

Cast on 80 sts in color A, prepare to work in the round

 Rnd 1-21: ek80 in color A

The brim is created by bringing the cast on row stitches (the bottom row of the work on the loom) back onto the top of the pegs. You should now have two rows of yarn on your pegs (row 21 on the bottom of the pegs and the cast on row on the top of the pegs). Next, simply work row 21 over the cast on row. This will create the double-thick brim.

Rnd 22: *ek1 in color A, ek1 in color B, ek 3 in color A; rep from * to end of rnd

 Rnd 23: *ek1 in color B, ek1 in color A, ek1 in color B, ek2 in color A; rep from * to end of rnd

 Rnd 24-25: *ek3 in color A, ek2 in color B; rep from * to end of rnd

 Rnd 26: rep rnd 23

 Rnd 27: rep rnd 22

 Rnd 28: *ek4 in color A, ek1 in color B, rep from * to end of rnd

 Rnd 29: *ek3 in color A, ek1 in color B, ek1 in color A, rep from * to end of rnd

 Rnd 30: rep rnd 28

 Rnd 31: rep rnd 29

 Rnd 32-33: ek80 in color A

 Rnd 34-36: *ek3 in color B, ek2 in color A; rep from * to end of rnd

 Rnd 37-38: rep rnd 32

 Rnd 39-40: ek80 in color B

 Rnd 41-42: rep rnd 32

 Rnd 43-44: rep rnd 39

 Rnd 45-47: *ek3 in color A, ek2 in color B; rep from * to end of rnd

 Rnd 48-50: rep rnd 39

 Rnd 51-55: rep rnd 32

Bind off with gather removal method. Weave in ends.

Finish by attaching a pompom in color B to the top of the hat.

  • Gorgeous work!!! Thank you so much for this.Great project for Loom-along on the KB site!

  • Love it. My next project.

  • The shawlette looks beautiful. I’m confused about what we are supposed to do to peg 2 after we’ve moved the loops from pegs 1 and 3 to peg 2. We yarnover past peg 1, then do we e-wrap and knit off peg 2 before doing a yarnover on peg 3? Do we purl it? Or do we slip peg 2 to move to peg 3?

  • What a gorgeous pattern! I bet it would be amazing in homespun yarn!

  • You are moving the loops from peg 1 to peg 2, then from peg 3 to peg 2. Pegs 1 and 3 are empty. You will ewrap (yarn over) peg 1, knit peg 2 (treating all the loops on peg 2 as one loop), ewrap (yarn over) peg 3. Hope this helps.

  • Can’t wait for the how to video so that I will be able to make this beautiful scarf.

  • Hi, thanks for your patience. It is almost ready and we are working really hard to be sure it contains everything you are needing. Pat

  • Will the note that says “short video coming soon” change to a link to the video? I have this bookmarked and want to make sure I can find it when it comes out. I have the first six rows on the loom and am just waiting to make sure I understand the 7th row instructions 🙂

    I’ve already made a cowl on the rotating loom and LOVE LOVE LOVE it!

    Anxiously waiting…

  • i recently purchased the his/hers sock loom and i am having difficult time trying to figure out.
    i have read about 4 or 5 times and still nothing, i try step by step and still lost.

    Do you have a tutorial video for this his/hers sock loom???

    i see one for everything else, but no his/hers sock loom… thanks for any help given…

    i am a beginner, so need from start till finish…

  • This MIGHT become my first pair of loom knit socks!

  • Hi, these sock looms are used the same way as the others. You can follow the videos that we have for the other sock looms and it will work for this loom.

  • Hi, how would you work the ‘yo’ at the beginning of row 22? Would the first peg end up having two loops on it?

    Thanks for your help.

  • I have a question and it relates to the toe section.
    For the heel you do the reinforcement and then continue on to do the leg.
    When you are doing the toe, do you skip that part? When you have finished the section do you just do the bind off starting from peg 1?
    None of the videos explains what is to be done. They just say heel and toe section are done the same.

NEW ‘Rotating’ Double Knit Loom

 

Introducing the new ‘ROTATING’ Double Knit Loom!  This loom features the new ‘patent pending’ rotating base.   You no longer have to change positions as you knit, the loom rotates as you work!

Loom sits comfortably on your lap, or on a table. It’s compact and lightweight …so easy to use.

Knit in the round, or knit flat panels. Use some of the pegs, or all 52 of them, depending on width of knit desired.

 

 

The loom comes in parts for easy assembly: (6) legs, (1) inner loom, (1) outer loom, (1) rotating base, instruction booklet and knit hook.

It’s super fast to set up with snap-in-place parts.  Set it up with inner and outer loom, and 6 legs for double knitting. Or set it up with outer loom only, using 3 legs, for single knitting.

It’s so easy! Made of high quality durable plastic.  The booklet will show you how to quickly and easily configure the loom for your project.

 

This loom is great for Hats, Scarves, Cowls and Shawls…. whatever, and however, you choose to create; this loom can make creating your project FUN and EASY!  Recommend yarn #4 or #5 for double knitting, and #2, #3, or #4, for single knitting.

The Double Knit Loom includes very detailed instructions with lots of how-to photos, introducing the double knit ‘in the round’ process. Get started with these easy fun projects.   More patterns/projects coming soon!  Click on photo for pattern.

 

 

 

 

 

For faster knitting also check out the Loom Double Hooks, knits two pegs at the same time.

  • AWESOME!!!!! Where and when they be in retail stores

  • Hi Caroline,
    That just depends on the retail chain….how many of their stores that they schedule for the product and the timing of the purchase. I would just check with your local stores in September and maybe they can answer this for you.

  • I love it i’m from Portugal. When is ready to sale?

  • Hi Anabela,
    We can ship now when your order is received.
    Thanks, Pat

  • I have the new round and sock looms. Just I ordered the rotating loom and the double hooks and I can’t wait to get them.

  • I ordered last night before the coupon came out. That will teach me to jump the gun! LOL

  • I’m so anxious! I love all the looms, I have and used all of them to date. I can hardly wait.

  • What’s the widest selection n the hats it can make?
    Thanks

  • would love to buy one of these but where can I find them.

  • This looks interesting. Are there any video tutorials available?

  • When and where can I buy it?

  • can a video be made showing how this loom works. I have not done double knit and am not quite getting it if I need this loom

  • Are you able to knit a double knit scarf with this

  • Yes you can knit a double knit scarf up to approximately 16″ wide.

  • We are working on a series of videos, expecting to be up in September. We will announce as date gets closer.

  • Not yet, planning in September.

  • It is awesome for adult double knit hats, and single knit child to youth size depending on stitch. For flat panels in both single and double knit approximately 16″ wide.

  • Thank you!!

  • Thank you for your support of KB!!

  • I just purchased one the other day I can’t wait to get this loon and the new picks. I knit hats and scarves for homeless vets and this will help me get more done quicker Thanks for making this new loom and picks

  • I’m not seeing a price on this one. I purchased the premium round looms and the his & her sock looms which I saw prices but for some reason, not on this one. Looks very interesting!!

  • $29.99. Today Monday is the last day of the coupon code: “Doubleknit”

  • The loom sounds wonderful, but I am concerned with the fact that there are only 6 or was it 8 patterns to use with this loom. Will I be able to use any of my hat and scarf patterns on it? Particularly concerned with doing youth hats. I have a 10 year old and a 35 year old that I want to make hats for.

  • Hi Deborah,
    You can use all your scarf patterns up to 52 stitches on the loom in single knit or double.
    The hat knitting is same as working on a round loom. The youth hats are just a matter of what is the head measurement, and how deep do you want to make it. Also, I would experiment with different yarns. You may want to make them in the single knit.

  • What is the advantage of a double Loom vs. just one Loom? What can you make with the double?

  • Hi Ann, You use a double set of pegs to work in double knit. Before, all double knit was done in a flat panel and then sewn together. This loom allows you to create a double knit hat in circular and therefore, no seam. If you are not familiar with double knit, you may enjoy the videos on the website to see what can be done and some advantages of working in double knit as well as single knit.

  • Where I can find those looms thank you

  • Hi Olga, All available looms can be purchased on website http://www.knittingboard.com. Some hobby and craft stores will be carrying some looms, but you need to check with your local stores for availability.

  • Using the afghan loom and a figure eight stitch, how much yarn is needed to make an lapghan? What are the measurements of an average size lapghan?

  • When you do the tutorials will you please make one showing the various ways to work color changes. I have no problem with single knit but, I am having issues with the double knit. I have the new double knit round loom (which I love ??). I have watched the available videos, they aren’t quite enough. Showing how to carry yarn, start new rounds, attaching new yarn, would greatly help! I am not newbie, and as such, I know that these videos would be of immense value to new loom knitters! Also, would some one make a video showing how to create your own cable patterns. Cables are easy to learn with practice, but a mystery on how to combine different types. Hope that makes sense. Thanks!

  • We will keep this in mind for the next tutorials. Thank you.

  • If the fabric goes down the legs to the base, how do you do any length, without piling it up there? Thanks!

  • Hi Linda, If you are doing a hat, you can just roll it up until the hat is done. If its a flat panel, just allow the length to come out between the legs and there will be no limit as to how long the piece becomes.
