  • I purchased 3 of the Zippy looms and I love them!

  • I Ordered 2 zippy looms today. What’s the best yarn to use?

  • How would you make a ruffle scarf using either Red Heart Sashay or Starbella yarn? All loom directions I’ve seen prevously use a rectangle loom so you can move the loop from the front to the back peg.

Whimsical Loom Knits – June 2015

Lacy Luminaries

It seems like glass jars have become more and more popular.  No longer only lurking in the canning section, glass jars are showing up everywhere – from restaurant tables, to craft boutiques, to garden centers.  And a quick search on the internet can bring up hundreds of ideas for re-purposing them. Liberate a few jars that have been stashed away in your cupboards, or purchase a few and make these pretty little luminaries.

How to:

[K2, YO, K2tog] – Worked over 4 pegs: Knit the first two pegs.  Move the stitch from the third peg over to the fourth peg.  Wrap the third peg.  Knit both stitches on the fourth peg together as one.

Instructions

Cast on 32 stitches using the double e-wrap cast on method.  Prepare to work in the round.

Repeat rounds 5-7 five times.  Repeat rounds 5-6 once.  Repeat rounds 1-4 once.  Bind off using the basic bind off method.  Weave in all ends.

Add any desired embellishments to the knitted sleeve.  Slip the sleeve onto the glass jar.  Tie the length of twine around the rim of the jar.  Place the tea light inside the jar.

Light the tea candle using a long fireplace match, a lit wooden skewer, or even a lit spaghetti noodle.  Enjoy the ambience as the light flickers through the knitted lace.

  • Love these! So cute and perfect for a porch. Thank you, Jenny!

  • Hi, Jenny. Regarding this adorable project… I cannot find the KB 32 peg loom. I checked their store and looms, but it did not show up. Could you direct me to where I can find it, please. Other than some conversations and groups, I’ve mostly been away from looming for a while. So I am a little behind in information. Thank you, so much!

  • Hi Linda! I’m so glad you like this project. The cute little loom used in this project can be found in the Loom Knitting Basics kit:

    OR, in the Make Your Own Skarf kits:

    I hope you have fun with this project. Let me know if you have any questions.

  • Very darling, Jenny! Excellent idea and I really love your extra touches of embellishments. :)

  • Could you please tell me the gauge of the 32 peg small loom? Is it the same as the All In One Loom? They’re very cute & I would love to try making them!
