Open Rib Stitch (double knit in the round)

This is a great stitch for a chunky look, and is very easy to create even for a beginner. One side of knit is chunky rib, and the other side, regular stockinette.

Sample knit with Loops and Threads, Barcelona yarn, #4.

To begin, cast on all 52 pegs in stockinette.  Then move (outer loom only) every other loop to next peg, so that one peg is empty and the next one has 2 loops. Do this all around the outer loom.

 

Weave in stockinette always wrapping the pegs with 2 loops on the outer loom, and on the inner loom, wrap all pegs. Be sure to keep the empty pegs empty.

This will create 3 loops on every other peg and the empty pegs stay empty. Work with loose tension.

Continue the round so that the pegs with 3 loops, now have 4 loops.

The outer loom will have 4 loops on ‘every other’ peg.

Hook over 2 loops over 2 loops on outer loom and 1 loop over 1 loop on the inner loom. Then repeat the process.

The inner loom will have just 2 loops.  Hook 1  over 1.

To create the headband above, work a total of 14 rounds in open rib stitch. A thinner or wider band can be made, depending on how many rounds are worked and desired. Bind off with basic bind off with crochet hook.

  • NOT a beginner project

  • HI, Are you having a problem with this stitch? If so, please tell us about it as we want to make it easy for you. At what point are you having a problem and maybe we can explain it better.
    Thanks, Pat

  • I have both sizes of looms for the rotating loom and am wondering what other loom sizes or head sizes they fit. I can’t wear hats off the 36 peg loom. Prefer the 41, 48 or 60 peg looms, 1/2”.

  • HI SHARON,
    The 52 peg loom makes hats about 20-21″ in circumference working in double knit. The 60 peg one will make hats up to 23-24″ depending on the yarn and stitch pattern used, in double knit. If you have other size looms, you can attach them to the base of your loom with the loom connectors. Also, you can make single knit hats by using just the outer looms of both sizes. Does this answer you questions? If not, let me know how we can help further.

Cable Stitch (double knit in the round)

Learn the Mock CABLE Stitch!

New stitch for the Rotating Double Knit Loom!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Working double knit ‘in the round’ is worked slightly different than double knit on a straight loom. The straight loom is worked to one end, and then back. In the round, the loom is worked in one direction around the loom.

 

The weight of the yarn and the stitch will determine the size from 20-22”.  Works great with #4 or #5 yarn. Sample knit with Red Heart Soft, Seafoam.

Rnd(s)=round(s)      st(sts)=stitch(es)

NOTES: Each cable design is 4 stitches wide.  Space between each design is 4 or 5 sts.  For headband (in photo) total 16 rounds.

Mark each set of design pegs with markers or yarn on outer loom.  Gold yarn marks the 4 peg cable stitches.

Work the cable design on the 4 stitch sections only.  After twisting the loops, wrap all pegs with stockinette stitch and hook over.

Cast on in stockinette stitch.

Rnd 1: Stockinette stitch

Rnd 2: Twist loop 1 & 2 ( place loop from cable peg 1 onto cable peg 2.  Place loop from cable peg 2 onto peg 1) and Twist loop 3 & 4 (place loop from cable peg 3 onto peg 4 and, then and place cable peg 4 onto peg 3, see photo).  Push loops down and then wrap in stockinette and hook over.

 

Rnd 3: Stockinette all pegs

Rnd 4: Twist cable peg 2 & 3, (place loop from peg 3 onto peg 2, and loop from peg 2 onto cable peg 3).  Wrap in stockinette and hook over.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rnd 5: Stockinette all.

Repeat all rnds (2-5) 3 additional times. For headband above, knit a total of 16 rnds. Bind Off with basic bind off with crochet hook at loom, and at anchor yarn. Remove the anchor yarn and weave in all yarn tails.
