Lily’s Pixie Hat

Hello my loomy knitters,

I bring you a new pattern for your AllnOne knitting loom, the whimsical pixie hat! I loved knitting this precious little hat and I was so excited when I finished it to find a little someone to wear it for me so I could take pictures. I looked and looked for about two weeks and I couldn’t find a little girl model, then came to the rescue little Lily, she is precious and so sweet and she has the perfect little face for this little hat.

  • just wondered if i had to use a all in one loom can u let me know soon. i would love to make one for my niece.

  • You don’t, however, we haven’t tested the pattern on any other knitting loom. If you get gauge on another loom, and you have the number of pegs needed, you should be able to do it.

  • You don’t, however, we haven’t tested the pattern on any other knitting loom. If you get gauge on another loom, and you have the number of pegs needed, you should be able to do it. Cast ons, whatever cast on you feel most comfortable using. I rarely call for a specific cast on, unless is absolutely necessary for the pattern.

  • Thank you! Very pretty, can’t wait to try it!

  • Have fun Margo 🙂

  • Thanks, Isela, I love learning a new stitch on a small project like this.

  • Has anyone laundered one of these to see if it remained square after washing and drying? The reason I ask this is because any washcloths that I have made on a knitting loom have had to be longer than they are wide in order to remain square after washing.

  • Thanks for another wonderful pattern.

  • I notice that my dishcloths always change shape whether needle knit or loom knit. You would probably be smart to do a gauge swatch and wash it to recalculate your rows and stitches if you wanted it to remain square. I once knit a cotton sleeveless top and was so proud of how it turned out. After it was washed, it was wider and shorter and that’s when I learned you can’t trust cotton yarn.

    Karen C.

  • Isela, do you think sometime you could explain how to set up a pattern with yo’s and k2’s and sskp on a loom so one could read the pattern and know what they are doing? I understand what to do when needle knitting but when loom knitting it all turns greek to me. I’m thinking primarily of the tulip face cloth you did recently.

    Karen

  • Karen,
    I use them to wash my body or dishes and to tell you the truth, I have never looked to see if they end up squarish after washing them. Since it is just for either my body or the dishes, I don’t mind if they don’t end up being square. Typically, my washclothes end up being my test swatches for bigger projects.

  • Karen, I will definitely tackle this for you and see if I can shed some light on the subject.

  • That would be great Isela. Thank you so much. I found the video you did on the fern lace stitch and the light bulb is slowly becoming brighter.

  • Greeting from across the sea. excellent blog I must return for more.

  • This is a great pattern. Thanks for posting it! So far it’s working up very nicely, and the All n One is a pleasure to use for making it.

  • i have tried four times to make the box stitch washcloth on the all-n-one and just cannot get it right somehow. i am using Village yarn, craft cotton #4 and the size comes out 12 ” and the pattern is just a jumbled mess. i am following the pattern exactly but don-t know what is wrong. could i be using the wrong yarn type? any input would be greatly appreciate.

  • The yarn should be about worsted weight. A few people have already knitted the cloth so the pattern seems to be okay, can you perhaps tell me what you are doing, step by step and then I probably will be able to help you.

  • I’m using sugar and cream cotton yarn. For this pattern, is it best to use one strand or two strands as one?

  • With our knitting looms, one strand is enough.

  • I love this stitch! I am always looking for new ones to try out on dishcloths (Mother’s Day is coming – this may fit the bill)

  • At this point I have shared this post as well and am up to 20 points total….off to find more posts I missed 🙂

  • Stunning washcloth. I think it would make an awesome granny square on a larger project! I even mentioned that on Google+, Pinterest, facebook and twitter. =)

  • I’m using the All-n-One and gave a gauge swatch of 11 sts and 16 rows for 2 inches.

  • i am very new new to this craft but for years after having a paralyzed left arm was determined to teach my self to knit and thank god i stumbled upon a kitting board!!!! but have yet to find a place for lessons to guide me through mistakes i was under trhe impression the knit stitch always needed to be wrapped on a peg after viewing the videos you have taught me otherwise you have np idea how video has helped the world of those stuck at home self teaching thank you sooooooooooo much i just wish now the boards were a bit less expensive you will hear from me again THANK YOU for helping me sincerely Maureen halle. i purchased the book reading has been reenforced.

Quick & Nifty Cowl

Bits of leftover yarn are always rolling around in my house, some of it sits for months, years all lonely in the “leftover” corner of the stash room. I loved this yarn and I wanted it to be used rather than it sitting all lonely with the rest of the stash. I had just enough leftover yarn to knit a small cowl/scarf.

Loom: AllnOne Loom, one rail
Yarn: 40 yards of worsted weight yarn. Knit Picks City Tweed HW, Morning Glory color was used in sample.
Notions: tapestry needle, 2 small buttons
Gauge: 8sts x 12 rows= 2inches in stockinette
Stitches: k, p, k2tog, yo
Size: 2-1/2 inches x 34 inches

Cast on 14 sts, prepare to work a flat panel.
*Row 1: p
Row: k
Row 3: p
Row 4: k
Row 5: p2, k to last 2sts, p2
Row 6: k

Repeat last two rows: 14 more times. *

Repeat from * to *: 5 times

Next row 1: p
Next row: k
Next row: p2tog to end of row. 6sts remain
Next row: k2tog, yo, k2, yo, k2tog
Next row: p
Bind off with basic bind off method. Weave ends in. Steam block lightly.
Sew buttons to cast on edge side, be sure to align them to the buttonholes created on the bind off side.

Voila!!! Wear it as a long thin scarf or wrap it around your neckline twice.

  • Is this basically a tube? I would love to try something like this.. I need to check out your Buttonhole technique!

  • Misty,
    It is a flat panel, a long thin flat panel :). I guess you could knit is a tube too.

  • So it is buttoned together to make a tube though, right?

  • Isela,
    I am not in to win the looms as I have every loom made by AKB (2 of some). Just wanted to say what a great idea for a contest. I keep up with all going on. I am currently working on the All ‘N’ One to create a sweater for men. Not many patterns for them. Keep your fingers crossed that it works out. Really enjoy seeing your work, You are great!

  • I think because knitting tends to curl in on the sides, it gives the appearance of a tube but it’s actually not.

    Karen

  • I really love this pattern!

  • I love all your patterns Isela – this looks nice and easy! (Shared this on facebook and twitter for the contest as well – total of 14 points so far 🙂 )))

  • will this work for the adult sock loom?? I just got one and would really love to learn it, but have yet to find a good pattern that is for this loom.

  • It will work, but it will be a little smaller/thinner than mine.

  • Isela,

    I don’t understand how do you get 6 stiches with 14 stiches. Could you please explain?

    Thans in advance,
    Mélissa

Double Woven Socks

Woven Socks 026Welcome my dear loom knitters! Have you ever fallen in love with yarn? You don’t have to raise your hand all the way up, just raise one finger or nod. I am guilty, so guilty to the point where all the yarn in my spare bedroom downstairs has touched my heart to the point that it has jumped inside my little shopping basket and wrapped itself around me that I just had to bring it home with me. The yarn in the Double Woven Socks called my heart, it beckoned me with its rich purples, as I put it next to my cheek, it whispered in my ear “take me home, please”. I fell for it right away and off through the checkout it went and made its way to my home. As I drove home, I wanted to knit something that will allow the beauty of its “paints” to show, I wanted to have little strands showing so that its beauty could be seen by the world. It needed a simple yet elegant stitch pattern and about a block away from my home, it hit me. I knew what I wanted the stitch to look like and I had an idea on how to achieve it.  In the 15 minutes that it took me to get home, I had formulated a design in my head and off to work I went! May I present you, the Double Woven Socks.  Warm enough to be worn during cold winter mornings or sturdy enough to be worn during hikes or to wear as “slipper socks” around the home. They have a delicate picot cuff and then the Double Woven Stitch pattern around the leg, the sole is worked solely in stockinette stitch to provide the knitter with a quick project and the wearer with a non-obtrusive stitch pattern around the foot.

Enjoy!

Need extra help with the Kitchener?  Visit the following link at Knitty.com for step by step instructions on how to Kitchener

I also have a video that demonstrates the Kitchener Stitch at the following link. It is not to close sock but it uses the same grafting technique of the kitchener stitch.

Weave ends in and block lightly.

  • I love your work. Would knitting this using the AKB sock loom, make a big difference in the finished size?

    Karen

  • Karen,
    You will need more stitches on the AKB to provide the same circumference. Probably around 60 pegs rather than the 40 I used. You can follow the pattern, as the design is a multiple of 4. The heel will be over 30 stitches rather than 20, but you probably already have the information on how to do heels on that amount of pegs, if you don’t, drop me a note and I can help you figure out the entire heel/toe process.

  • Thanks Isela.

  • What a creative pattern, I will definitely be trying it out asap. Thanks for sharing this!

  • This is beautiful. Thanks.

  • Fantastic article post.

  • I am working on the sock loom. I used 50 pegs. I don’t know what to do now that I am ready to start the heel/toe since 2/3rds of 25 isn’t an even division. Any help would be appreciated.
    Thank you.

  • Barbara, try addind one stitch. it may make it a little roomy, but the division works better.

  • Thank you very much for this pattern. I’m new to loom knitting and have just completed my first sock using this pattern and the youtube videos demonstrating some of the steps. I never thought I’d be able to loom knit socks, but with your help I have! Thank you.

  • How do I yo k2tog?

Last Minute Slouchy

knittingBoard-189crop
It was Tuesday morning and it was my turn to carpool the kids to school. I was running around like crazy that morning and I hadn’t even had a chance to change out of my pajamas. 6 kids were in the car waiting for me and the clock was ticking. I didn’t had a chance to go upstairs and brush my hair and make myself look half-decent, but as I was going out the door, I saw my slouchy hat and put it on. In a second, I went from looking disheveled to presentable and that my friend’s is how the name of the slouchy hat came to be. It is my last minute emergency tool! I love it! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Isela Phelps

Loom: All-n-One Loom

Stitches: k, p, e-wrap, k2tog, yo.

Yarn: 130 yards of worsted weight
yarn. Araucania Aysen was used in sample (Less than 1 skein).

Notions: Knitting tool, tapestry
needle, and removable stitch marker.

Gauge: 8.5 sts= 2 inches in double ribbing

Size: Fits up to a head circumference of about 21 inches.

Level: Intermediate

Notes: Working clockwise around the knititng loom. The ribbing section is done with the knit Allnone-2stitch, may substitute with the flat stitch or the u-stitch. The rest of the hat is done with the e-wrap stitch. Important: Note that on Round 11, we move the first stitch one place to the left (clockwise) to keep the pattern slanted. We will use the stitch marker to keep track of our new Peg 1 position. We keep moving it after each pattern repeat so each time you do a row 11, you move the stitch marker over to mark the new Peg 1 position.

Knitting Loom Settings: set the knitting loom to 80 pegs (35 on each of the long rails and the two sliders).

Abbreviations:
k=knit stitch
p=purl stitch
k2tog=knit two stitches together
yo= yarn over (simply e-wrap the peg that needs the yarn over)

Directions

Cast on 80 stitches, join to work in the round. Place stitch marker on 1st peg.

Round 1-8: *k2, p2; rep from * to the end of round.

Round 9: *yo, k2tog; rep from * to the end of round.
(How to:  *Move the loop from the first peg over to the second peg, first peg is empty, second peg has 2 loops on it. E-wrap the first peg thus creating the YO. Then ewrap the second peg, lift the bottommost two loops off the peg. Repeat from * to the end of round)

Round 10 and 12: Knit with the e-wrap method.

Round 11:  Move stitch marker one peg to the left (peg 2). This peg (peg 2) becomes Peg 1.  *yo, k2tog; rep from * to the end of round. (How to: see Row 9 on the break down).

Round 12: Knit with the e-wrap method.

Repeat Rounds 9-12: until item measures 9 inches from cast on edge.

Bind off with gather removal method.

Steam block to open the lace, be careful not to steam the ribbing portion as this will loosen the stitches.

Join us for a Loom A Long!

We are having a Loom A Long hosted by Kelly Jones with her fun Butterfly intarsia design.  Join Kelly on Wednesday, June 17 as she works with all knitters to create this intarsia Butterfly design. This Wednesday Kelly will be available with lots of helpful hints at knittingboards yahoo group. Just post your questions for Kelly. The pattern is also in the “files” folder at the yahoo group. Here’s the link:  http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Knittingboards/ 

Butterfly Intarsia Block

butterfly_intarsia1

 

This butterfly intarsia pattern can be used for a number of different things.  You can use it as a wall hanging, afghan block or make a back and sew it together for a pillow.  You could even adjust the main color rows to make placemats, or use cotton yarn for a dishcloth or pot holder, or use wool and felt it for a bag front.

I really hope you enjoy knitting this up!  Intarsia designs are a great use of “extra” yarn.

 

Supplies: 18”or 28” small gauge Authentic Knitting Board using 36 pegs, spacers set at ½”.

Yarn: One skein (approximately 400 yards) #3 or #4 weight yarn, single stranded for background color.  Small balls of yarn are all you need for the contrasting colors, use double strands for all contrast colors to make it a little fuller. 

Stitch: Stockinette cast-on and stitch used throughout. 

Finished Size: approximately 10” x 10”

Cast on using main color in stockinette stitch 36 pegs, count cast on row as first row of pattern.  Lay anchor yarn. 

Row 2-5: stockinette stitch in main color.

Row 6: start with contrast color (double stranded) and place slip knot on peg 17 (top or bottom of board doesn’t matter) work to peg 19 in stockinette stitch.  Skip over to peg 25 and continue to 27 in stockinette, turn and work back over remaining contrast color pegs.   You’ll place the working yarn across the top of the main color.  If you ended with the working yarn on the top of peg 19 you start peg 25 at the bottom of the board (it’ll form an “x” over the main color – see photo).  Make sure you leave the yarn a little loose in the “x”, or it will pull the design to the middle on the finished project.  Knit off.  Lay contrast color 1 down after knitting off and pick up main color.  Knit in stockinette stitch skipping over the contrast color one pegs.

 Repeat pattern from chart.  Make sure you start each row with contrast colors and knit those off before going to the main color.

When you finish with a contrasting color cut the yarn leaving a 2”-3” tail and lay it across the center, you can tuck some of it under the “x” from the main color to hold it in place. When you finish with contrast color 1 in row 16, cut and “lay-in” tail.  Restart color with a slip knot on row 19, peg 9.  Make sure slip knot is snug. Continue with pattern from chart.

Bind off and tuck in all tails!
