  • Wow thank you I can’t wait to do this.

  • I love the pattern and have learned a lot by following along with the video and the written part. I only made a sample with a larger gauge but will make a finer gauge for a thinner head band. Thank you for sharing and teaching the craft.

  • S pretty! Nice color and very feminine – thanks for sharing!

  • I love your videos you are amazing I just have a small request if possible. I am knew at this and I don’t know hire to read patterns can you make a video and show us his to read patterns please?

  • Sorry for the previous comment I hate auto correct but you get what I’m saying right?

  • Isela you are awesome. I came very late to the looming party, Christmas of 2012,after buying my daughter the boye circular loom set. I loomed my first hat and have been enjoying it ever since. Being a visual learner your videos are priceless. I know you’ve backed off of your all consuming work in loom knitting but I’m so happy to see you continuing to share patterns and videos. Thank you for sharing your knowledge. I’ve made 2 Iva headbands, the second one i did in 2 colors it turned out great. I’ve been looking at this pattern from time to time,and I think I’m ready to tackle it.

  • I would love to see the one with 2 colors! I bet it is stunning. Have you attempted making a knot with the overlapping fabric? I bet it would look great like that too. Good luck with the Cat’s Paw Headband, it is a cute one :).

  • I appreciate you response to my post. The knot interesting idea, how much longer do you think the separate rows of seven would have to be to knot and still be able to reattach to the loom ?

  • Probably about 20 rows of the 7 stitches, I think you can take it off the knitting loom and knot it and see if it is long enough and then place the stitches back on the loom.

  • A very educational video. I too am a visual learner when it comes to knitting. This is one of the best videos I have seen.

Friendship Shawl

Friendship Shawl 2

A shawl for a best friend is sometimes the closest we can get to giving our best friend a perpetual hug. Although your arms are not around their shoulders, the yarn that has passed through your hands thousands of times can be around their shoulders each time they wear the shawl.

Materials

Knitting Loom
67 peg small gauge knitting loom. Recommend to use All-n-One knitting loom.

Yarn
520 yrds worsted weight wool. Sample was knit with 6 skeins of Lion Brand Superwash Merino Cashmere.

Notions
Knitting tool, tapestry needle.

Size
58 inches x 16 inches when blocked

Pattern notes

Use one strand throughout. Suggest to use stitch markers to mark the stitch pattern count as this will make it easier to work the rows (see chart below). First row of Fern Lace Stitch Pattern is worked in a counter-clockwise direction (Left to Right)so that the first Lace row goes in a clockwise direction (Right to Left). Link to the video showing how to accomplish the stitch pattern on a loom: http://youtu.be/Xs9d1ImBVnE

Step 2: Move loop from peg 3 to peg 4.

Step 3: Place loop from Step 1 on peg 4. Peg 4 has two loops on it.

Step 4: Remove loop from peg 5 and hold it.

Step 5: Move loop from peg 6 to peg 5.

Step 6: Place loop from Step 4 on peg 5. Peg 5 has two loops on it.

Step 7: Move loop from peg 7 to peg 6.

Step 8: Move loop from peg 8 to peg 7.

Step 9: Move loop from peg 2 to peg 3.

Step 10: Move loop from peg 1 to 2. Peg 1 is empty.

Row is ready to be worked.

E-wrap peg 1, knit peg 2-7 (treating both loops on pegs 4 and 5 as one loop), e-wrap peg 8, knit peg 9.

Arco Iris Slouchy Hat

Arco Iris Hat 1000I am very excited about my last slouchy hat. I wanted to incorporate the last stitch I presented to you a week ago, the Crown Stitch, but I wanted it to be in a colorful way. I was envisioning something where the garter stitch rows were all in one color and then the “crown” rows in a different color. It took me awhile to find a yarn that had the right “length” of color sequence as well as a playful disposition in the colors. After browsing for awhile at different yarns, I found what I needed right in my stash, Knit Picks Chroma in Lollipop.

To create this hat, you will need to review the Crown Stitch videos. It uses the stitch through the hat, so be sure to take a look at it and practice it a bit before you embark on this hat.

Pattern Information

Materials

Knitting Loom: All-n-one-Loom, set up to 70 stitches, then increased to 80 stitches.

Yarn: 150-180 yards of worsted weight yarn. Knit Picks Chroma Worsted in Lollypop color was used in sample.

Notions: Knitting tool, tapestry needle.

Gauge: 8.5sts =2 inches in stockinette, steamed blocked.

Size: Sample fits a head that measures up to 21 inches.

Abbreviations

CO=Cast on

GBO=Gather bind off

K=knit

P=purl

sts=stitches

yo=yarn over (ewrap)

k2tog=knit two stitches together

p2tog=purl two stitches together

Pattern note: The stitch pattern used in this pattern is the Crown Stitch, converted to loom knitting by Isela Phelps. Please view the video to familiarize yourself with the stitch pattern prior to working this hat. Video to the Crown Stitch can be found at this link:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Valbw3F5t4&feature=share&list=PL2-mSMyRmhzWE72ygBcwC-xr3AOku9Hdp

CO 70 sts, join to work in the round.

Round 1, 3, 5, 7: k

Round 2, 4, 6, 8: p

Round 9: *k7, yo on the 7th peg; rep from * to the end (10 pegs have a YO on them).

Round 10: *k6, move the YO to peg 8, k peg 7, move YO from peg 8 to peg 7, k the YO; rep from * to the end of round.

Move all the stitches to a piece of scrap yarn. Re-set knitting loom to 80 pegs. Place the stitches from the scrap yarn back on the knitting loom.

Body

**Round 1: k1, *k1, yo 3 times on the same peg (ewrap peg 3 times); rep from * to the last peg.

Elongate the wraps over 4 pegs (from peg 2 to peg 5). Work on these 5 elongated stitches as follows: k1, [p1, k1] twice. Rep from * to the end of round.

Round 3, 5, 7: k

Round 4, 6, 8: p**

  • I love the look of this hat! I can’t wait to try it out! Thanks Isela! :)

  • Hi Isela! Beautiful, and Beautiful work!

  • Hi Isela- I love your books! Tell me- can you still purchase the DA Looms?? I can’t find them anywhere and I am having trouble finding a loom to do a small gage on. Any thoughts? I have the all-in-one loom but that doesn’t go that small..

  • Love the hat!! Is there a video for this hat? The colors are wonderful!!!!

  • I’ve got a question. The video for the crown stitch has you putting the elongated stitches on peg 1, however the pattern says to put them on peg 2. Are we to follow the video or the pattern? It gets a little confusing here.

    Thanks!

  • I started this last night..using KnitPicks chroma worsted in Roller Skate. Increasing was really hard– at least putting it back on the loom. It was frustrating!
    After a few false attempts on the crown stud h, I pulled up the video ..all good!

  • I just started this last night…I’m enjoying the challenge!
    I think the hardest part is doing the increase—it was really difficult to put the stitches back on the adjusted loom. I think I ended up missing 2, and I hope that didn’t mess up my hat!
    (Just started the second round of crowns)

  • Do we have to use the flower to embellish it or can we use anything we like?

  • Anything you would like :)

  • Isela,

    Does the pattern as written make a child’s-sized headband? If my calculations are correct the pattern makes about an 18″ circumference, does that sound about correct? Just curious so that I can attempt to make a headband that fits me, lol! Guard is not my string suit. ;-)

    Thank you for your assistance!

  • Guage…not guard. Silly keyboard!

  • Wish me luck. :)
    I send in some pictures.

  • I’m seeking for a skilled writer, extended time within this region. Superb write-up!

  • Hi there
    I’ve bought and I’m using the fabulous Sock Loom! And I wondered if someone could help me please?!

    At the start of the Heel & Toe Part 2 DVD, it tells me to continue wrapping until I have 5x pegs wrapped, 5x unwrapped and 5x pegs wrapped so I will then have two thirds of the pegs wrapped.

    So my question is should I wrap 5x pegs at each end of my ‘short row method’ or do I need to wrap two thirds of the number of pegs that I am currently using?

    I hope this makes sense.

    Thanks in advance!

    Genevieve

  • Yep, that makes sense. You will work with the amount of pegs that are being used. so the 2/3 rule will change with each sock based on the amount of pegs used. Does that make sense? pat

Row 6: k1, p1, k1, p1, k2, p1, k1, p1, k1 (two knit stitches are at the center of the row. You will increase BETWEEN these two knit stitches on the next row.)

Row 7: k1, p1, k1, p1, k1, m1b, k1, p1, k1, p1, k1 (11 sts)

Row 8: Work in the rib pattern across all the stitches, knit the knit stitches, purl the purl stitches.

Row 9: k1, p1, k1, p1, k1, pfb, k1, p1, k1, p1, k1 (12 sts)

Row 10: k1, p1, k1, p1, k1, p2, k1, p1, k1, p1, k1  (again, you will have two purl stitches next to each other right at the center of the row, you will increase BETWEEN these two stitches on the next row)

Row 11: k1, p1, k1, p1, k1, p1, m1f, p1, k1, p1, k1, p1, k1 (13 st)

Row 12: Work in the rib pattern across all the stitches

Continue to increase in this manner until your work measures 7” from the cast on edge. You should have 33 stitches on the needle.

Work in the rib pattern for another 4” (until you have 11” from the cast on edge—this is the place where you work less rows to make a smaller or longer headband)

Begin the decrease:

Row 1: [K1, P1] 7x, K1, P3tog, K1, [P1, K1] 7x (31 sts)

Row 2-4: Work in the rib pattern across all the stitches

Row 5: [K1, P1] 7x, K3tog, [P1, K1] 7x (29 sts)

Row 6-8: Work in the rib pattern across all the stitches

Continue to decrease in this manner—every other row that goes from right to left, k3tog or p3tog the two very center stitches, with the rest of the stitches being worked in rib stitch (knitting the knits purling the purls)–until you have 9 stitches remaining on the loom. Last 4 rows: work in rib stitch as established. Remove from the loom using the Basic Bind Off method leave the last stitch on the peg.

Transfer the last stitch to a crochet hook. Chain 4-6 stitches and connect them to the beginning of the BO edge (this makes the button loop so size it according to the size of your button).

*You may continue doing a decorative crochet edging. Single crochet around the entire headband edge. The entire crochet border is optional. It gives the edge a bit of a decorative look. But the headband looks fine without it. If you choose not to do it.

To make the headband wider, cast on extra stitches. To make it longer, add extra rows at the center.

  • This is beautiful – is the flower crocheted?

  • Yes, the flower is crochet.

  • I love all your patterns. Do you have any adult women skirt or dress patterns? I’ve been searching for knitting boards and looms and can’t find any. I’ve found some for regular knitting, but I don’t know how to transfer that pattern for a loom or knitting board. Any advice would be helpful. Thank you!

  • Would you mind explaining kf&b and m1b please? Also pfb and m1f. If I get that far, I should be able to work the rest out. Thanks.

  • I’ve read and re read this to understand all the stitches before starting but I don’t get a couple of them. What is the kf&b, P2tog, K2tog and rib pattern. Also you don’t say if you are using a round or long straight loom. My grandkids/nieces would love this for Christmas but need a little more help …

    Thanks
    Debbie

  • I used the All-n-One loom. We have videos that demonstrate the kf&b, p2tog, and k2tog. The videos are here on the blog.

  • Gaye, we have videos that show the entire headband how it is made. Have you had a chance to look at them? http://blog.knittingboard.com/index.php/archives/1160

  • K, I just had a huge mess both times I tried this. I’m new with a loom (and knitting for that matter). My increases only went to the right but in your video it looks like your went both ways from the middle. The stitches on the right look OK but the ones to the left of center were all messed up, they were just straight across stitches, I’m so confused. I’d really like to learn this, can you offer any help?

  • Love headband pattern and the video is the greatest help. Thank you.

  • This is so cute I followed the video well until row 13. Can you explain what to do with this row do I go back and follow row 5-12 over and over until I get 33 pegs

  • Hi, can this pattern be done a round loom, as this is all I own at the moment,since I am fairly new at loom knitting. I love your headband pattern..thank you! Nadine

  • Yes, this can be done on any knitting loom. The pattern is worked as a flat panel, knitting back and forth in rows.

  • Really confusing, pretty though, the girl in the pic is really pretty

  • Not meaning to be rude by any means. However, are us loomers a bunch of whimps? I have wasted waaaaaay more time then should have been necessary to find adult dresses. I am a very brave new looked who love to have some options for spring. My daughter thinks I should be able to do anything. Frankly, I am starting to think I need to find pieces of patterns (a cape, T-shirt or sweater) connected to a piece of an afghan, for instance, to come up with something. Of course a dress may come in panels but does a beginner have to be an inventor while they learn? I know it’ s not your fault I am just frustrated. If you know of any sites please send them my way.
    Thanks, The Frustrated Hopeful Beginning Dress Loomer

  • Hello!! Love love love, this pattern. But would you by any chance have a pattern for the flower, or at least the name of it?? Thanks a million for sharing this!

  • The flower is a pattern I got from YouTube. I don’t remember the name of the pattern but it is all crochet.

  • I want to make a hat. K1p1 all i have is a 31peg loom. What do i do with the 31st peg

  • The only foloom i have is a 31 peg. I want to k1p1, but what do i do with the 31st peg.

  • You will just do a k1 on that peg. Do you want it to be completely ribbed–k1, p1 all throughout, and have small ribs throughout, if you do, you will just have 2 knits together (the 31st peg and the 1st).

Creating Hair Scrunchies with Left Over Ruffle Yarn

Chances are you have a bit of left over yarns from all the ruffles scarves and you probably don’t know what to do with all of them. Here is a new little “item” that you can create. It is not on a loom, but I promise you, it is not hard at all. If I can do it, you can too and I already created 2 of them :).  I created a video on how to go about the small project. Enjoy!

  • Can anyone HELP ME? I am lefthanded and I am having trouble even getting started. In fact I have started every other day or so since Christmas and I am still not past 2 rows! PLEASE HELP ME!

  • Excellent video~~ this is a perfect accessory for my granddaughter! She loves the ruffled yarns and I don’t like to make her a scarf with the entire skein because it’s too long on her. She loves hair scrunchies!!! I am left-handed – there are videos on YouTube for lefties!!

Pony Tail Hat Design

Happy New Year my dear loom knitters! It is so great to have a new year ahead of us, I like to think of it as 365 days of blank cards that we get to fill up.Hey, there is an idea, how about we grab some index cards and each day, we write something about loom knitting-tips, tricks or a stitch :). At the end of the year, you will have 365 tips or tricks on looming :).

Over the holidays, I had some time to sit down and knit. I showed my group over on Facebook one of my creations and they all wanted the pattern for the loom. I sat down and did some bit of math and came up with the following pattern for all of you. I hope you enjoy it. I have already made 5 Pony Tail Hats.

Running brings freedom to my life as such, I am out on the road during all times of the year, including during the freezing Utah winters.  The design of this hat allows me to wear my hair in a pony without having my pony tail under my hat, instead, it flows freely, the way my soul feels when I run.

DIRECTIONS

CO 80sts, join to work in the rnd.

Rnd 1: *k2, p2; rep from *

Rep Rnd 1 until Ribbed Cuff measures approx 1.5 inches from CO edge.

Next rnd: k

Rep last rnd until piece measures 6 inches from CO edge.

Next rnd: BO 5 sts, k to the end.

(Next section from * to * is worked in rows, follow instructions exactly)

*Next row: k from last peg back to peg 6.

Next row: k from peg 6 to last peg.*

Next rnd: CO 5 sts, k to the end.

You have two options: 1-do a Simple Hat. 2-Crown Decreases. Follow whichever one you prefer or the one that is best suited for your knitting loom.

Option 1: Simple Hat Directions  (no crown decreases) Continue working in the rnd for 2 more inches in knit stitch. Then do a GBO. Weave ends in. Block if necessary.

Option 2: Crown Decreases Instructions

Next rnd: *k6, k2tog; rep from * to the end of rnd.  (70 sts rem)

Next rnd: k

Next rnd: *k5, k2tog; rep from * to the end of rnd.  (60 sts rem)

Next rnd: k

Next rnd: *k4, k2tog; rep from * to the end of rnd.  (50 sts rem)

Next rnd: k

Next rnd: *k3, k2tog; rep from * to the end of rnd.  (40 sts rem)

Next rnd: k

Next rnd: *k2, k2tog; rep from * to the end of rnd.  (30 sts rem)

Next rnd: *k1, k2tog; rep from * to the end of rnd.  (20 sts rem)

Next rnd: *k2tog; rep from * to the end of rnd.  (10 sts rem)

GBO

Using a crochet hook (size 5.5mm), work one round of single crochet around the pony tail opening.

Weave ends in. Block if necessary.

ADAPTING THE PATTERN TO A BIGGER GAUGE LOOM

If you have a 48 peg large gauge (Purple Knifty Knitter) loom that gives you a gauge of 2.5 or 2 sts per inch. You will also need bulky weight yarn, approx 150 yards.

Cast on 48 stitches instead of 80 and follow the instructions as given with the exception of the bind off for the pony tail opening.  Instead of binding off (BO) 5 sts, only bind off 4, and on the next round cast on 4.  In addition, do NOT follow instructions from * to * (the section of rows). Follow everything as given, except for the changes indicated. You won’t be able to do the Crown Decreases as this loom is not adjustable, so follow the simple hat without the Crown Decreases.

  • I like this, I am wearing a pony tail right now. I saw one made up on a crochet site for a little girl with the top two corners open for piggy tails too. It will look great with or without a brim.

  • my girls love it :) super !!!!

  • Jeannette, you read my mind! Next up, one with two piggy tails :)

  • I my daughter-in-law will love this! I need to make her one. Thanks for posting this. :)

  • Isela, thank you for sharing your time and talent so generously! I know my daughter will love wearing this hat when she runs! Can’t wait to finish it and give it to her!

  • You are welcome :). I am glad to be of help and that my tinkering around helps others.

  • Love the ponytail hat! I’m always wearing my hair in ponytails, so this will be a great project for me to start.

  • Love the hat I made one for my daughter she always wears a ponytail. Her birthday is in Feb. will give it to her then,I know she’ll lvoe it. A friend of mine is learning to loom knit and wants to make one too she also wears a ponytail.

  • Isela Hi I love the ponytail Idea but I was wondering if you have a video on how to make this hat .yes I am a new learner still and a visual learner patterns only confuse me I know how to loom knit hat but this one is a little confusing to how you make the hole for the ponytail please help if you could post a video and show what loom to work with Thank You inadavance .

  • Can this ponytail hat be converted to a child/toddler size?

  • I agree with the lady who wanted to know if there is a video for this hat because right now I am trying to make this hat for a friend. I mg am lost on how to BO and CO to make the ponytail hole. Help me please. I am working on the Ribbed Cuff at the moment.

  • For the knit stitch – are you using the e-wrap stitch? the knit stitch? or the flat knit stitch?

  • I use the knit stitch-the one where you lay the yarn on top of the loop, hook the loop the. Remove the original loop and place new one on peg.

Happy Holidays!!! Christmas Stocking Pattern

We would like to wish you all a wonderful holiday season. Thank you for all your support and for all your wonderful feedback and for your friendship. We would like to bring you one last free pattern to wrap up the 2012 year. Thank you all and Happy Holidays!

Loom: AIO Loom by KnittingBoard.com, set at 60 pegs was used in sample. Any other loom with regular gauge could work.

Yarn: Approx 260 yards of worsted weight yarn. Red Heart Shimmer in Red and Snow.

Notions: Knitting tool, tapestry needle, 2 double pointed needles in size 4 (used for grafting the toes).

Gauge: 10 sts x 13 rows= 2 inches in stockinette, but it doesn’t need to be accurate, it is just a big sock :)

Size: 21” x 6”

Pattern notes:

The Decorative Trim (red section) is worked separately as a flat panel in garter stitch, after stocking is complete, the cuff is seamed/sewn to the top of the stocking. The tassel cord and pom pom are created after by braiding yarn and placing a pom pom at the end of the braid.

Wrap and Turn=Lift the loop presently on the peg and hold it, take working yarn around the peg by going to the inside of the loom then wrapping the yarn around the peg so the yarn ends to the front of the peg. Place the loop back on the peg.

Tassel Cord

Cut 12 pieces of red yarn about 14 inches long. Separate into three groups of 4 pieces of yarn (4, 4, 4). Tie a tight knot on one end. Do a simple braid with the three groups of yarn.  Knot it.

Pom Pom

Create a small pom pom using both colors of yarn. Attach to one of the ends of the tassel cord.

Assembly

Place the Tassel cord at one of the sides of the top of the stocking, so that the tassel hangs down to the body of the stocking and leave about 4 inches of the tassel cord hanging above the cuff, securely sew the tassel to the cuff area. Make a loop with the 4 inches by folding it to the inside of the stocking, sew it in place.

Using CC yarn, sew the Decorative Trim to the Cuff of the stocking. 1 ridge per stitch (line up a ridge with one of the small “v”).  Sew BO edge of Decorative Trim to CO edge of Decorative Trim.

Weave ends in.

Steam block.

    I love it. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you your family and to all crafters!

  • Isela Thanks so much. This is really beautiful. I will have to try to make it after the holidays.

    I love it. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your family and to all crafters!

  • Thank you so much for the beautiful stocking. Will give me something to work on this summer. Merry Christmas to you, your family and AKB. Have a Happy New Year.

  • Amazing! Thank you! Can’t wait to start on it! Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

  • Merry Christmas, Isela! Thank you so much for the stocking pattern. It is so beautiful. You are a lovely and generous person to share it with us. Many good wishes for your Christmas and New Year…

  • That is breathtaking. What a beautiful gift it would make. Thanks, Isela, for doing the hard part and figuring out such a great design. Christmas blessings to you and those you love.

  • This is just beautiful! Will make a lovely project for the winter months.

  • This elegant Christmas stocking is absolutely beautiful, Isela! Thank you so much for sharing your time and talent!

  • I was sincerely moved by the thoughtful gift you have given. I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Peaceful New Year.

  • La trovo veramente bella e penso che sia facile da fare.
    Complimenti e Auguri a tutti

  • Thanks so much for posting this pattern! I am going to try to make one (or some!) for next christmas! Happy Holidays!

  • Thank you very much. This is absolutely lovely. Merry Christmas.

  • E’ veramente bella, sicuramente tra i progetti da fare, e decisamente comprensibile anche per chi come me si dedica al loom knitting da poco tempo, Grazie Isela e Auguri!

  • Thank you so much for this gorgeous pattern! This is what family heirlooms are made of!

  • Thank you, it is the most elegant stocking I have seen this year.

  • Please help, Isela! I started making the tree of life stocking, but was a little confused when I got to the foot. Your instructions aren’t clear about it. Am I right to assume that I begin and end the rounds for the foot on peg 16, not the original peg 1, as the toe will also be knitted on pegs 16 to 45? I continued without cutting, figuring the yarn will be cut once the toe is complete. I want to make sure I’m clear on that before I continue with the foot, to make sure I’m making it properly. This is the first stocking I’ve done, and since the heel isn’t in the usual place, it’s coming out of the loom at an odd angle. Ive knitted many pairs of socks, and I want to be sure this stocking is finished properly, since I’ve put a lot of work into it. Oh, and I also knitted the red cuff into the stocking, not separately to sew on later. I’ve found that the pieces I try to sew together don’t look very good. I don’t know why.

  • Cynthia, after we finish the Tree of Life, we will begin the heel. The reason why we started the heel on peg 16 is that we want the Tree of Life to be on the sides of the stocking, not front and back of the stocking. Therefore, we will need to move the heel around so that it is half way between one tree and the tree from the other side.

    Think of it as two pieces, once you finish the top, the instructions say to “Cut yarn leaving a 5” yarn tail. Attach yarn at peg 16 cont to heel instructions” the top part is over. Now you will work on the foot. Forget about the top instructions altogether. Now, attach your yarn at peg 16. From this point on, peg 16 will be considered peg 1, until you finish the stocking. The toe is done on the same pegs as the heel, so if you need to put a piece of masking tape on pegs 1-30 (remember that your new peg 1 was your peg 16), and make sure you use those same 30 pegs for your heel.

    Good luck!

  • Thank you, Isela! It’s just as I thought to finish the stocking. I used stitch markers to mark the new pegs for the heel and toe. They work well and I don’t have to worry about tape residue on the loom. I’ll definitely have to steam block the stocking when it’s complete. It’s looking really funny as it comes out of the loom, and right now my tree looks like a diamond instead of an elongated tree. My next stocking will be a sparkly black and white. I bought the yarn but haven’t determined my pattern yet. My 19 year-old daughter LOVES black and white items.

  • Good luck Cynthia, send us a picture and I would love to post it :).

  • Isela, this is my first time attempting the beautiful stocking you made last year. I don’t understand the cast on instructions. If you could clarify it for me, I would appreciate it. You do such a gorgeous job on all of you projects

  • The cast on instructions say with CC cast on X number of stitches. You will be working a flat panel, so with the red yarn (Contrasting Color=CC) cast on the number of stitches necessary. Does that help?

  • Isela I love your design but I am a little knew at this can you possibly make a video to show me how to do it I still have a hard time reading the paterns because again I am knew at this thanks.

  • Thank you so much for the Christmas stocking pattern! I can’t wait to make one for the new granddaughter!!

  • Hello I was wondering if I did this on the 31 peg loom how would I alter the pattern so it would come out as your design did?
    Or is that even possible? Thanks

  • You will have to redo the entire design as the “tree” is done over 30 stitches. Your tree will be all around the stocking. This design looks better on a smaller gauge loom.

  • What cast on method do you recommend for this project? It’s so pretty, I hope I can get mine close to this. I debated on colors but finally chose white and red I Love This Yarn in metallic.

  • Cast on method–I used the long tail cast on method

  • I w
    As wondering if you ha
    Ve to start the stocking on a certain peg? And when you’re doing the back side do you do the tree of life chart wher peg 31 would be like peg one and 60 would be like 30

  • I am ready to start the heel… I have counted out the pegs as you say in pattern but I’m not sure. I started on the top of the loom not the side. Did I start on the right peg or no? And if I did then can you help me figure out where I should start my heel? I also went clockwise around the loom. Please help when you can. Thank you! So far my stocking looks good!! I just want to make sure I place the heel and toe correctly.

  • Oh also I should say I used the all in one loom as the pattern says. Thanks!!

  • Elizabeth, the heel begins on peg 16. Count to peg 16, and place a stitch marker on it.

Frilly Girly Skirt Pattern

Skirt 095

My little girl loves tutus and anything that has to do with frilly girly things. One day, she was putting one of my ruffle style scarves around her waist and it look really good, except that the ruffles were going sideways. I decided to remedy the sideways ruffles and got to work designing her a skirt.

Materials

Loom: 100 peg small gauge knitting loom. All-n-One Loom was used to create sample.

Yarn: 20 yards of worsted weight yarn (CY: Contrasting Yarn). 40-60 yards of ruffle style yarn, amount depends on the length of skirt you want to create (MY: main yarn).  Sample shows a skirt with 1 skein of yarn.

Notions: Knitting tool, tapestry needle.

Other: 24 inch piece of ½ inch width elastic (for Waist Band 2)

Size: S, M, L (18, 20, 22 inches). Sample shown L-fits around a waist that is 22 inches in circumference (fits a 7 year old).). Skirt length depends on the number of Ruffle yarn skeins you used. Sample shows one skein and the skirt is 9 inch in length.

Gauge: Taken with worsted weight yarn: 9 sts x 12 rows =2 inches.
DIRECTIONS

Waist Band Instructions (Two options provided)

Option 1:
Using CY, CCO 84 (92, 100) sts, join to work in the round.
Rnd 1-8: *k2, p2; rep from * to the end of rnd. Cut yarn, attach MY.

Option 2:
Using CY, CCO 84(92, 100) sts, join to work in the round.
Rnd 1-10: k to the end of rnd.
Rnd 11: p to the end of rnd.
Rnd 12: 21: k to the end of rnd.

Next: Move every other loop of the CY  over one peg, so you have every other peg with two loops.

Break yarn, leave a 30 inch yarn tail if working Option 2. Join MY.

MY will be using as a ruffle, open the netting and locate the top row of eyelets/netting openings.
Next Rnd: *Place one yarn loop (eyelet) on peg, skip peg; rep from * to the end of rnd. Lift over both CY loops off the peg, leaving only the ruffle style yarn on the peg.
Next: *Place one yarn loop (eyelet) on peg, skip peg; rep from * to the end of rnd. Lift bottommost  loop off the peg.

Skirt 097

Rep last round until item measures 12 inches (or desired length) from change of yarn.
BBO. Weave MY ends in.

Waist Band Finish

Waist Band 2 option only: Measure waist of recipient, insert elastic between the wrong side of the Waist Band area, sew the ends of the elastic together, fold waist band, purl row marks the half way mark. Using CY, sew the cast on row to the last row of the CY area.

Ruffle skirt

  • What a great project. I’m going to try this as a gift for my girlfriends daughter who will be turning eight, so I have a few questions:

    1. CCO means cable cast-on, correct?
    2. When placing the ruffle yarn onto pegs do I follow the basic instructions of how to use this yarn? (Meaning, the companies that make it tell you to skip one eyelet to create the ruffling effect)
    3. In option 2 does “Rnd 12: 21: k to the end of rnd” mean that there is 10 rounds completed with the knit stitch?
    4.If using opion 2, when the ruffle yarn is added, do you complete the ruffle stitching as stated in the directions and disregard the * sign (only asking because there are no *’s in the option 2 waist band directions)?
    5. I know BO stands for Bind-Off, so what does BBO stand for? Basic Bind-Off?
    6. When moving stitches over to create the skipped peg, which way should I move the stitches? Right or left from my starting anchor peg? Do I take the stitch from Peg 1 and move it to Peg 2 or 99?
    7. When stitching for the different sizes (84 and the 92), are there looms that have that number of pegs?
    8. Would you think about posting this project onto YouTube as a follow along project?

    Thanks so much for this great project! I hope to hear back from you so I can start knitting this!

Mimirose Scarf

A stunning and elegant scarf that will have everyone turning around just to look at it again and again.  Knit with Circulo Renda Trico yarn this scarf knits up in just a few hours making it the perfect “gift” for the holiday season. Gather up your materials and let’s get started.

*A special thank you to model, Dominee Rose.

Materials

Knitting Loom: All-n-One Loom, set with the knitting board 1-inch spacer.

Yarn: 1 skein of Circulo Renda Trico Margarida or similar style yarn.

Notions: knitting tool, tapestry needle.

Size: 34 inches x 5 inches

Pattern notes:

This yarn is very similar to the ruffle style yarn that we have used previously in many of the scarf projects. This particular yarn looks like lace and it has small orifices that are used to knit. We will place those small holes on the pegs and knit with the “yarn”

We will be using the loom in a special way, set it up as if using it as a knitting board with the 1-inch spacer. We won’t be knitting as a knitting board, rather, we will use first the front rail, then we will switch the loops to the back rail and knit there, then we will switch them back to the front rail and knit there. We will repeat this process so that the ruffles go on the front and back of the piece and not just on the front side.

Directions

Step 1: Place a loop on 6 pegs of the front rail of the loom.

Step 2: Place a second row of loops on the pegs.

Step 3: Knit off (Lift the bottom most loop up and off the peg).

Step 4: Move the loops from the front rail to the opposite 6 pegs on the back rail.

Step 5: Place a second row of loops on the pegs.

Step 6: Knit off (Lift the bottom most loop up and off the peg).

Step 7: Move the loops from the back rail to the front rail.

Repeat Steps 2-7 until item reaches desired length.

Bind off with basic bind off method.

At the end, thread the end through a large eye needle, pass it through the last stitch that was on the loom. Pull gently on the yarn until all the slack has come through. Tie it securely with two knots. Weave in the ends as invisibly as you possibly can.

Wash it in Eucalan woolwash to soften up the fabric, I recommend let it soak for about 15-20 minutes, soak it in cold water as warm water can make the color run.

Hostess Gift: Washcloth & Towel Set

I have to admit that the only reason this set made it into “real life” was because of the color of the yarn-HOT GREEN, or as I like to call it “Zumba Hawt” It is the color of many of my Zumba clothes…hey I should probably take it as my new towel during class. I saw it at the store and it was an impulse purchase. I had to get the yarn and knit something with it, it didn’t matter what, just something. Then it occurred to me, my bathroom downstairs could use a splash of color and voila the little set was born. I hope you enjoy knitting it and gifting it or keeping it :).

Happy looming!

Materials:

Loom: AIO loom

  • To Isela,
    I just wanted to say thank you for posting such great ideas and patterns. I just received my own all in one loom. I have a few other projects to finish first but I look forward to casting on with you here at AKB in the very near future.
    Leann

  • If you don’t have the loom you used what would be the next best loom. I have the round knifty knitters and the Martha Stewart loom set. Would any of these work?

  • I would recommend the Martha Stewart with the small little blue pegs.

  • Thank you Leann :). You will love this loom, it is my favorite!!!

  • Love this pattern but… there seems to be an error in the welted rib. The directions state “Row 1: k2, *p2, k2; rep from *, IMO it should be Row 1: *k2, p2, k2; rep from *. I have tried to make this using the original instructions but the pattern I get is all wrong.
    Please let me know if I am reading the pattern correctly.

  • The stitch pattern for knitting in the flat is a multiple of 4 + 2. I put the +2 at the beginning of the stitch pattern, the k2, then I put the multiple *p2, k2. If we were to repeat the entire thing of *k2, p2, k2–it would be a multiple of 6, instead of a multiple of 6. Also, if we were to have the multiple as *k2, p2, k2–we would have 4 knit stitches together in between each p2. I hope this makes sense. Thanks for your feedback.

  • Forgive me for doubting, you are correct! Tried this again as written but this time relaxed my stitches on the board to account for the cotton yarn. The pattern really comes alive after washing and blocking the piece.

    The cotton yarn was throwing me off, but had faith and kept working along, with looser stitches which appear to be the key, what a learning experience!

    Keep up the great job, you are awesome!

Ready For Fall? Double Knit Ribbed Shawl

Get started this fall with a beautiful Double Knit Ribbed Shawl. Super easy to make on the 10″ or 28″ Knitting Board. It can be whipped up in couple days….AND oh soooo soft!!

Beautiful Shawl that is so super easy and quick to knit that it is sure to be a favorite wrap.  Great starter project in double knit, and looks equally beautiful as a scarf.  You can use your 10” or 28” knitting board for this one, and have it ready to wear to dinner tomorrow evening.

Stitch:  Rib

Yarn:  Lion Brand Homespun, Baroque in shades of purple, 8 skeins reserving 1 skein for the fringe.     98% Acrylic and 2% Polyester, 185 yd per skein   (6 oz/169m)

Finished size:  26” X 72” including fringe– Width relaxes to 36” when draped.

Needed: Knitting Board (10″, or 28″. If using the 10″, you will make 2 pieces and sew together),  knit hook, large darning needle, and crochet hook size 8.

Gauge:  2 sts=1”  4 rows=1”

Directions:

Cast On 22 sts (10” KB) or 44 sts (28”KB) using a basic cast on (stockinette).

Work in Rib st until you piece is desired length (sample is aprox 54” before fringe).  This will be aprox 216 rows knit in Rib stitch.

Bind Off in Rib stitch using the crochet hook by lifting 1 loop over 1 loop.  This will maintain the nice stretchy edge to match the cast on edge.

If you are using the 10” Knitting Board, you will create a 2nd panel just like the first making sure to work the same amount of rows as the first panel.  Lay the panels out on long table or clean floor, and match the long sides.  Using a darning needle and single strand of yarn, sew the panels together with the invisible stitch.  Do not pull too tight as you sew; you will want the knit to remain stretchy, so small stitches are best.  Secure at both ends with a stitch leaving a long yarn tail that will blend with the fringe.

Did you save 1 skein of yarn for the fringe?  You want to make this nice and thick so the shawl will drape nicely and give a full, luxurious effect.

Cut the yarn so that you have pieces aprox 19-20” long.  You want to have a fringe piece for each edge stitch.  So if your shawl is 44 sts wide, you should have at least 88 pieces cut for both ends.  Fold each piece in center and place in one edge stitch starting from one side edge.  Using crochet hook, pull the 2 ends of yarn thru the loop and pull snuggly.  Always pull the loop into the stitch from same side of shawl.  Work a few pieces and then, do some fringe at opposite edge working towards center.  Continue adding the fringe until all 44 sts are complete.  It is not necessary that they are all even in length.  The variation adds to the charm of the shawl.  Add fringe to opposite end of shawl and you are ready to emerge with your beautiful new wrap, or save it to place under the Christmas tree for your favorite relative or friend.

  • What spacing is the board? 1/2 inch, 1 inch, or 1 1/2 inch? Thanks.

  • If you use a 10″ or a 28″ Knitting Board, 1/2″ spacing. If using the All-n-One loom, use 2cm spacing. That will make the same gauge.

  • It is amazing to use knitting board to make something. I seach online how knitting board looks like. It seems to be a two pieces of wood and some nail. May I ask, how many centiment between to nail and how thick is the nail? Thank you

    I will be using the All-n-One loom, you say to use the 2cm spacing.
    Q1: I would cast on 44 sts??
    Q2: Would a chain cast on work ??
    Thank you B.

  • Hello
    This is double knitting, using both sides??

  • Yes, it is double knit.

  • Not really understanding what Gauge: 2 sts=1” 4 rows=1” actually means I am new to knitting, so appreciate if you can help me.

  • It is measuring the number of stitches you get per inch and the number of rows per inch. In one inch, you should have 2 stitches. In one inch, you should have 4 rows. A sample swatch is required to measure the gauge. Cast on approximately 16 stitches and work about 5 inches. Take it off the loom, then measure the gauge.

Storybrook Cloche

I have to admit that I am a lover of all accessories, if I have a choice of an item to knit, it will most likely fall in the range of scarves, mitts, hats, socks, or something “chic” to enhace the wardrobe. The Storybrook cloche was inspired by one of my latest show-series obsessions, Once Upon a Time, the actresses are always wearing gorgeous hats! Choose any episode and they have a new hat, I want to have a wardrobe full of hats, one for each day of the year, or at least a full month’s worth! The lace section is only 8 rounds, after that it is just a matter of knitting and purling to the very end! Go ahead, give it a try!

  • Not sure where I should leave my question. I am stuck. I have started socks using the knitting board adjustable loom. I used 50 pegs. When it came time for the heel I can’t get a number divisible by three. Half is 50, so don’t know whether to do 8/9/8 or 9/7/9. If you can help thanks.

  • I love your videos you do a great job with your illustrations but I wanted to know if you can break this stitch down? I see this stitch pattern is similar to the Fern Lace stitch but the sl1 k2tog psso is confusing me, I end up with 3 stitches on one peg for that stitch. Is that right? Please help been trying to do a zig zag edge for a while. Thanks!!

  • Oh yeah and where is row 6? Oops I put the wrong email domain above sorry should be yahoo. I hope it still reaches you. Thanks

  • I love your videos and illustrations but can you break down the stitch pattern like you did on the Fern Lace stitch on YouTube?
