Mountain Sun Hat w/ Brim

Designed by Pat Novak

A hat for any season with 2.5” wide brim.  Optional flower or a button may be added for accent.  Top of hat is worked in single knit on one loom for shaped top.

Loom: ‘Rotating’ Double Knit Loom, with 52 pegs

Yarn:  Lion Brand New Basic, 75% Acrylic/25% Wool, Machine wash, lay flat to dry.

175 yds per skein.  (1) skein Grass,  (¼) skein Olive, accent yarn for flower (any yarn), New yarn of stronger cord of similar color (36”).

Notions:  Loom, knit hook, crochet hook, (6-8) plastic/metal pins for sewing, darning needle

Stitches:  Open chunky Rib, Stockinette in double knit, and ewrap in single knit

Size: Fits adult with 22”-23” head circumference (above ears)

Hat is knit in 2 pieces: main hat, and added brim which is sewn on.

Abbreviations used:  aprox=approximately,        rnd(s)=round(s)

 

 

INSTRUCTIONS

Cast on in double knit with Olive yarn using stockinette cast on.  Lay anchor yarn of thick strong yarn.

Change to Open Rib set up.  (outer loom, move every other loop (L to R) to adjacent peg so that there is an empty peg between the pegs with yarn.  Continue to wrap only the pegs with loops on next circular.  Lift 2 over 2 on each hook over.  On inner loom, you will have 2 loops on each peg;  lift 1 over 1 on the hook over.

Rnds 1-4:  Work in Open Rib Stitch. (chunky rib)

Move one loop from pegs with 2 loops back to empty pegs (R to L) on outer loom.  You will now have one loop on every peg on both looms.  Cut yarn with 3” tail and tie on Grass yarn for remainder of hat.

Rnds 5-19:  Work in Stockinette stitch.  The hat should be aprox 4.5”-5″ including the hat band.

 

Top of Hat

Change to single knit for top of hat.

Move all inner loops to corresponding pegs on outer loom.  You will have 2 loops on all pegs on outer loom and the inner loom will be empty.  Remove the inner loom and legs.

Work hook over, one over one, so that there is only one loop on each peg on outer loom.

Decrease 1: Think of pegs in groups of 4.  Decrease peg one onto peg two, by moving first loop onto peg two.  Count 3 more pegs for that group.  Move next peg over for decrease and skip 3 pegs.  Decrease  next peg.  Skip 3.  Once you have worked around loom with this decrease, you will have one peg empty, one peg with 2 loops, and 2 pegs with one loop, for each group of 4 pegs.


Group of 4 pegs: one empty, one with 2 loops, 2 pegs with one loop.  Wrap again for one empty, one with 3 wraps, 2 with 2 wraps.  Continue with all pegs.  Ready to hook over.  Lift 2 over 1 and 1 over 1.  Leave all empty pegs empty.

 

Rnds 20-25:  Work these 5 rounds in ewrap and skip the empty pegs. Work the peg with 2 loops by lifting both loops over new loop. This will be 1.5”.

Decrease 2: Move the 2nd loop in each group to next (last peg in group of 4) so that you have one loop on every other peg.

Rnds 26-32:  Work these 7 rnds in ewrap, skipping the empty pegs.

 

 

 

To close top of hat, cut working yarn with aprox 15” and place the yarn tail onto darning needle.  Pick up all loops and place them on the working yarn.  You can go around the pegs a 2nd time so that the gather is very strong.  Remove the hat from the loom and carefully pull yarn to gather the remaining stitches.  Work the gathering process so that the top of hat is completely closed in.  Take the yarn to inside of hat and work some securing stitches.  Weave in ends of yarn and trim ends.

Bind off at anchor yarn with crochet hook, using 2 loop method.  Set hat aside until the brim is ready to attach.

Brim

Add the inner loom into base of loom.  Brim will be worked in double knit in one long piece.  Remember that the outer edge of the brim will be longer than the edge that is attached to hat, so you want to knit it long enough for the outer edge.  We knit aprox 36” for the brim piece.    This will be aprox 180 rows of knit, or 35″-36″. Then the inner edge will be gathered to fit circumference of hat.

Cast on 9 stitches in stockinette stitch.  Use more if a wider brim is desired.  Add anchor yarn.

 

Work in stockinette until brim is desired length.  It needs to be aprox 10” longer than the base of hat where it will be attached.  Once complete, bind off at both short edges.

 

 

 

Gather one edge of brim so that it is desired length to fit around base of hat.  You will want to gather the long edge of the brim piece with a New yarn.  It needs to be strong and twisted yarn of similar color to hat yarn.  Have New yarn about 25” long.  You may choose to leave it in the hat or remove it, just depends on colors.  Our sample was sewn with a black cord but does not show, so we left it in the hat.

 

Put yarn onto the darning needle and pick up each stitch on one long side of brim.  Gently pull it in as you go so you can control the ending length.  Once you have it all on the New yarn, measure it to the hat for fit.  If it fits the hat, tie the 2 ends of New yarn together and work the gather so that it is even all around and fits the size of hat band.

Sew the 2 short end of the brim together with hat yarn.

 

 

Fit the brim to edge of hat and secure in place with plastic or metal pins.  Be sure the joined short edges are placed at back of hat.

Once you have the edges together evenly, you can turn the edges to inside and sew together with matching yarn color and darning needle.  You can use part of the New yarn (stronger cord).  Try to grab only the edge stitches of both pieces for an invisible seam.  Knot the yarn when complete and weave in all yarn ends.

Working from inside of hat, sew brim to edge of hat grabbing only the edge stitches.  Once secure, remove pins and sew the short edges of brim together at back of hat.  Be sure to sew the brim to hat by stretching the 2 pieces together so the seam is smooth and not too tight. Trim all yarn tails and weave into knit.

 

                                            

 

Inside of hat after sewing.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Flower or Adornment

This adornment can be a knit or crocheted flower.  Knit a square 6 stitches X 8 rows wide, gather both edges with yarn tails to form a circular piece.  Then create a center with accent yarn of 5-6 loops.  Sew onto the brim.

Kitchener Cast On
https://youtu.be/tvmPk_s_nmg

INSTRUCTIONS

Using FG color, cast on using the kitchener cast on method (shown in video) on all the pegs.

To do the kitchener cast on you wrap tail of yarn around loom or use a slip knot on end peg. from there wrap working yarn around the FRONT of each peg going back and forth to create the zig-zag the area you will later tighten up for a seamless toe.

Toe

The toe is worked from peg 1-33. The 1st part of the toe is the decrease.

The decrease it done by lifting the stitch off the peg it is on and placing the working yarn behind the peg around to the front. Put the stitch back on the peg. this is abbreviated ¨W&T… ¨ the number is the peg number itself. For this project the decrease is always at the end of the row.

Adjust the width of the toe and heel by decreasing more or less for a proper fit. This pattern will decrease 11 on each side for the toe.

  • What size sock are you making?
    It is gorgeous

  • In the video it says these can also be done on the original sock loom, what adjustments need to be made since the original is rectangular instead of oval. Especially for the kitchener cast on.

  • HI Chuck,

    None at all. The original H & H Sock Looms had slightly larger spacing between pegs, but same peg count, so the pattern works exactly the same.

  • This is an average adult size sock.

  • The Aqua Stripe Blanket pattern is one I have been waiting for ever since I received the message from KB Looms and it was pictured as being made on the KB afghan loom. It really is such a unique look, so full of texture. Thank you Denice for sharing it. Can you explain in a bit more detail as to what you mean by a “wavy edge” and just what two edges, top and bottom? Also, “not a perfect rectangle”? Thank you, wish to make it for a gift and wonder just how the edges will look.

  • Beautiful design, Denise! I love everything about it!

  • This is so lovely — am wondering if I can use this on my KB all in one ?

  • Oh! This is so pretty I want to start it and have my yarn and KB Loom all ready. But, in reading over the pattern can you explain in more detail ” Tie on” I notice this s when I am to change a color……do I just tie a knot to add the new color on and when at the beginning of the row it says to skip the first stitch, do I tie on the new yarn and then bring strand on yarn to back of first peg and continue on? Will the knot show on wrong side of afghan? Thank you for help Denice and the pattern!

  • Hi! I would like to make 0-3m socks or booties and I just bought “The Original fine gauge Sock Loom”. I am a bit of a beginner and the instructions are confusing to me as far as how i measure the foot and how I decide how many pegs to use. If someone could help me Id appreciate it!!

    Thank you!!

  • I am working on this pattern.
    I am not understanding how the blanket waves on one side.
    I am on row 16 but the pattern ends on the same pegs at the row every row???
    Am I not doing something right???

Water Lily Lace Scarf

Designed by Jenny Stark

Visualize a pond filled with gorgeous, purple water lilies. Consider how the roots are firmly planted down in the mud at the bottom of the pond where they find stability and nourishment. Sense the cool waters, cleansing and sustaining the plant. Finally, reflect on the pristine beauty of the blossom that floats above everything – a symbol of purity, renewal, and grace. May the lovely colors of these yarns and the beauty of this lace pattern bring the same calming, lifting feelings to your mind as you create it and then wear it or share it.

  • Such a lovely design, Jenny! It reminds me of a Monet painting.

  • Looks like this will be a very complicated pattern. I will Try it (I THINK) when I get brave enough. I’m basically a newbe knitter and not that good at it.. It really is a beautiful scarf.
    Valerie

  • Thank you Brenda! The colors remind me of a Monet painting as well. Thanks for commenting. I hope you have a great day!

  • Hi there Valerie! Welcome to loom knitting. I know you will find so much enjoyment from this craft – and a bunch of new friends to boot 🙂

    One of the best things about this scarf is that it looks so complicated, but it really isn’t. It is mostly knits and purls, with a little shuffling magic on one row. I do have a video that shows how to work row 7 here:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4wLQJ3Gcevk

    and row 8 here:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3m4NhP1PZdA

    I hope that helps. Have a great day!

Farmer’s Market Bag

Designed by Ace Beorchia

With farmer’s market season right around the corner, now is the perfect time to make a Farmer’s Market Bag! The stitches in this pattern create a very stretchy material perfect for small and larger items alike. This is a quick knit, and you’ll be showing off your farmer’s market goodies in no time!

Tag @ace_knits on Instagram to get your Farmer’s Market Bag featured!

LOOM: KB ‘Premium’ Chunky Round Loom Set, orange loom, 48 pegs

YARN: 51 grams (approx. 83 meters) of any 100% cotton yarn; Lily’s Sugar’n Cream in “Autumn Leaves Ombre” used in sample

NOTIONS: knitting tool, tapestry needle

LEVEL: Beginner/Early Intermediate

 

ABBREVIATIONS

Approx – Approximately

k – knit stitch (May substitute with u-stitch)

st(s) – stitch(es)

rnd(s) – round(s)

tk – triple knit (see instructions below)

 

‘Triple Knit’ Stitch Instructions 

The triple knit stitch creates a lengthened stitch using one peg. To work the triple knit stitch, start by knitting the peg normally. However, rather than continuing to the next peg in the round, bring the yarn back in front of the same peg in the opposite direction (as if you were going to turn and go the opposite direction). Knit the peg again—creating the second knit on the same peg. Finally, on the same peg, turn the yarn in front of the peg in the opposite direction one last time. (The yarn should be in the same position as when you originally started the stitch.) Knit the peg one last time.

In simpler terms, knit the same stitch three times in a row—keeping the yarn in front of the peg on each knit.

 

INSTRUCTIONS

Skipping every other peg, cast on 24 sts and begin to work in the round. Throughout most of the pattern, only work on the live pegs (the 24 pegs from the cast on).

Rnd 1: k across entire row (24 sts)

Rnds 2-22: tk across entire row (24 sts)

 

Short-row Increases

Next, you will create short rows on the two sides of the bag where the handle will attach. To create the short rows, number your active pegs (1-24) and do the following:

Row 1: tk pegs 1 to 6; turn

Row 2: tk pegs 5 to 1; turn

Row 3: tk pegs 2 to 5; turn

Row 4: tk pegs 4 to 2; turn

Row 5: tk pegs 3 to 18; turn

Row 6: tk pegs 17 to 13; turn

Row 7: tk pegs 14 to 17; turn

Row 8: tk pegs 16 to 14; turn

Row 9: tk pegs 15 to 24; turn

 

Top of Bag

Now that the short rows are complete, use the following instructions to complete the top of the bag:

Rnd 1: k across (24 sts)

Rnd 2: e-wrap all 48 pegs. k previous 24 sts. Each peg should now have one wrap of yarn.

Rnd 3: k across entire row of 48 sts

Rnd 4: k across entire row of 48 sts

Bind off very loosely using the basic bind off method.

 

Strap

Cast on 8 sts.

Row 1: k across; turn

Repeat row 1 until strap is desired length. (Sample strap is 20 inches.)

Bind off using the basic bind off method.

The edges of the strap will naturally curve in, giving the straps an i-cord appearance.

 

Finishing

To finish the bag, first tighten the cast on row (see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3yUxTMi2Fv0 for an example).

Next, similar to finishing a hat, weave the loose end from the cast on through the 24 cast on stitches. Pull tightly to cinch closed the bottom of the bag.

Finally, using the mattress stitch, sew the handle to the bag at the top of the short row edges on both sides of the bag.

Weave in all ends.

 

Tip

Place something flat in the bottom of your bag to give it some width and structure.

  • This is a sweet project. Thank you for listing the amount of yardage needed to complete the hat and booties. I wish all projects would list the yardage needed as not all brands of yarn are available everywhere. It would be nice to know the amount of yarn needed to improvise with another brand of yarn.

  • Thanks for the pattern. However, I am a huge visual learner. Reading the pattern does not work for me. I need to see it done to be able to do it.

  • I enjoy your patterns and I have a suggestion. I like the listing of yarns used in the sample but many of these aren’t available where I am able to shop. If there could be a note as to the total yardage needed it would be very helpful in substituting other brands of yarn. Thank you.

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.

  • It’s incredibly frustrating that there are only 4 patterns for the KB Afghan infinity loom. None are for beginners with no knitting background or experience. I’ve never knit before and the need for patterns using this loom via book, online or preferably a step by step video for very new beginners would be very much appreciated. Just one video instructional, pretty pretty please? (Begging) Can you recommend easy to learn patterns with instructions for this loom for beginners? I bought the loom, 12 rolls of yarn, but I’m at a loss. If I could easily learn just one project, I would take this loom with me everywhere and I’d probably wear it OUT! LOL. I’m a very visual person and the instructions that came with the loom were confusing for me, an extreme novice beginner. I’m anxious to start any project at all. Any recommendations would be very much appreciated. Thank you so much for reading this comment.

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.

Mark the center of knitting with piece of yarn or pin.

The arm shaping will start now.

You will also start the neckline at center of sweater front.

Arm shaping:

*Row 1:  Decrease (1) stitch each end of board.  Work row.

*Row 2:  Knit one regular row.

Do these 2 *rows a total of 6 (7) times.

At neckline, twist the (4) center stitches.  (2) loops to right of center will be lifted and placed on the (2) pegs to left side of center.  The (2) loops to left of center will be lifted and placed on the (2) pegs to right side of center.  This will make the center very strong and a nice accent.

Work the 2 sides of front in 2 separate pieces.

Tie on another skein of yarn to the right side knitting at twisted stitches.

Work each side separately while doing the decrease for the sleeve shaping.

When you have completed the decrease rows ending with a regular row, you are ready to do the shoulders.

Shoulders: Bind Off 2 (3) stitches at beginning of left side, and same on end of right side. The remaining stitches are the neckline.

Neckline:

Rows 1-4:  Rib stitch for each side of front.

Bind Off loosely.  Pick up 2 loops, pull (1) thru (1).  Pick up (1) additional loop, always alternating the boards.  Do this to both sides of front of sweater.  Bind Off loosely at anchor yarn for hemline of sweater front.

 

Back of Sweater:

Repeat all steps as front of sweater, only leave out the design and do not separate the neckline.  Skip the neckline section, and the design section.  Work directly to shoulders, after doing the arm shaping.

 

Sleeve:  (knit 2)

Cast on 18 (22) stitches with accent color.  Lay anchor yarn.

Rows 1-4:  Crisscross Stitch or Rib stitch to match the sweater front and back.

Tie on main color (M).

*Row 1:  Increase (1) stitch each end.  Work row in stockinette stitch.

*Row 2:  Knit (1) row in stockinette.

Repeat these (2)* rows for 3 (4) additional times.

Arm shaping:

Decrease (1) stitch each end of loom every row until (2) stitches remain.

Bind Off.  Bind Off loosely at cuff.

Tie String:

With main color yarn and crochet hook, crochet a chain approximately 28” (30”) long.  Knot at both ends several times to form a small ball that conceals the tails of yarn.

Sewing the pieces together:

Sew the side seams of sweater front and sweater back with invisible stitch.

Sew the shoulders and neckline with invisible stitch.

Sew each sleeve from cuff to arm shaping.  Place each sleeve in sleeve openings, matching the underarm seams, and the center of sleeve to shoulder seam.  Secure these two areas with a strand of yarn.  Be sure you place the sleeve seam at underarm.

Work in the front of sweater with front of sleeve by sewing with invisible stitch.

Work in the back of sweater with back of sleeve by sewing with invisible stitch.  Make extra stitches at underarm and shoulder to secure for active little toddlers.

Front finishing:

Use your crochet hook to weave the braided piece for a shoelace up the front opening.  The center of the braid should be placed behind the twisted stitches.  Lace the braid from side to side ending with ends at top of each side of opening.

Tuck in any yarn tails with crochet hook.

Lacy Shimmer Hat & Cowl (double knit)

Most versatile cowl for any weather! Wear it for warmth, or just as a fashion statement. Knit in fine, lightweight yarn.

LOOM: ‘Rotating’ Double Knit Loom with 60 Peg Loom Toppers for cowl. Both are set up for double knit.

YARN: Lion Brand ‘Shawl in a Ball’, #4 worsted yarn. Cotton and Acrylic blend, machine wash and lay flat to dry. Color, Feng Shui Grey. 1 skein is enough for both cowl and hat.

STITCHES: Rib, Stockinette

NOTIONS: Knit hook, crochet hook, darning needle

SIZE: 12” x 23”, laying flat (doubled) for cowl. Hat fits 22-24” adult head.

GAUGE: 3 sts and 4 rnds=1”

 

 

 

 

 

INSTRUCTIONS

COWL Cast on all 60 pegs in Stockinette. Lay anchor yarn around loom to secure stitches.

Round 1: Rib Stitch

Repeat round one until knit is 12” from cast on stitches, or 50 rounds.

Bind off loosely in rib stitch with crochet hook. Remove from loom.
Bind off loosely at anchor yarn with basic bind off working one strand over one . Carefully remove the anchor yarn.
Weave in any yarn tails. Both edges should be very stretchy.
Your cowl should adapt to scrunched or rolled neck piece. It is also wide enough to be pulled up to cover your head.

HAT Matching hat is made with the original 52 peg looms. Fits adult 22-24” head.

Cast on all 52 pegs in Stockinette. Lay anchor yarn around loom.

Rounds 1-6: Rib stitch

Rounds 7-18: Stockinette for fullness around head.

Change to Rib stitch and work until the hat measures approximately 9” from cast on.
Cut yarn with about 12” of yarn tail remaining.
Move inner loops onto outer pegs, so that there are 2 loops on each of the outer pegs and the inner loom is empty.
Place the yarn tail onto darning needle. Go around loom and pick up the loops on each peg and place onto the yarn. Once the loops are all on the yarn, remove hat from loom. Gather the top of hat by pulling gently on yarn. Before pulling tight, go around the stitches again for a strong gathering yarn. Gather snuggly. Knot on inside of hat with some securing stitches. Trim and weave in ends.

Pom-pom: Start wrapping the yarn around fingers or 4” wide cardboard. Wrap approximately 100 rounds with the section of the skein of yarn to reflect the colors desired. Tie the rounds of yarn securely with a double strand of yarn with 4” tails. Once tied, these tails can be used to tie the pompom onto the hat. Cut the loops so that they are single strands.
Cut pompom to desired length and shape. Tie and knot to inside of hat. Weave in yarn tails.

  • So excited to get this pattern, I enjoy all the KB Looms, when working on the free patterns if there is a chart and written directions, I try to work from the chart then double check my work with the written pattern, and in doing so, this time I found a mistake in the written pattern I want to share with others, to help save time.
    In row 17 the pattern shows a total of 41 sts there should only be 40 sts in total. The pattern shows the row ending with a R1. It should end with the W1, Only trying to help, from one crafter to another. Thank you again for the free patterns I really enjoy them. CK

Introducing…Loom Holder Connectors!

Now any loom can rotate on an elevated base!

The Loom Holder Connectors convert the ‘Rotating’ Double Knit Loom base into a Universal Loom Holder.

Kit includes: (3) loom holder connectors and (6) fabric bands (3 smaller bands are attached to the holders.  To attach wider looms, replace the small bands with the larger ones.)

 

 

How it works…

The loom holder consists of a leg connector, and a ‘tray’. Each holder connector snaps onto a leg of the rotating base.  The ‘tray’ or, top part of the connector,  holds the loom. The trays rotate around to adjust to each loom.  This allows the holders to work with various loom sizes.  The connectors are very strong and sturdy.

 

 

 

 

To begin set up, simply evaluate your loom size, and insert the 3 legs into the rotating base using either the outer, or the inner openings on base. If you are setting up a large round loom, the outer leg locations work best, and smaller looms use the inner leg locations.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rotate the trays to best position to fit your particular loom. Now take your loom and set on top of the 3 trays. Turn and adjust the trays so that they are balanced with the rotating base. Once loom is placed comfortably on trays, simply wrap the fabric bands around loom and secure to bottom of tray.  The bands will hook over one of the knobs, located on bottom of the tray. You can use your fingers or knit hook to attach bands.

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you are working with a larger loom with wider base, for example, the afghan loom, remove the small fabric bands and replace with the larger fabric bands that come in the kit.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The connectors work to hold many loom shapes and sizes.

  • WOW! This is just wonderful news. Thank you to the folks at Knitting Board!

  • OMG!!! I had asked you if you could make a rotating loom with 36pegs, and if not, could you make something rotating to hold looms. You answered back by saying to watch for something new at the end of the year… And you did it. Actually you made 2 new items, but you made the rotating loom bigger, not smaller. But, unfortunately, I cant purchase both items because they are a little to pricy. I will not use the original loom that comes with the rotating base, so it would be a waste to purchase it. All in all, it is a terrific new concept.

  • Can the looms that are made for the rotating loom, be put on this one? I Have the orginal and just bought the new one Without the base). Was wondering if it can be put on this so that I can have 2 projects going at the same time.

  • This sounds great, what is the price of the Loom Holder connectors.? I already have the rotating double knit loom……..Jettie

  • I think that is awesome

  • I like it! I have enjoyed all the looms I have purchased over the years. This is the best idea so far. As soon as Christmas is over, I’m purchasing this!

  • Wow this is awesome. Looks like it will come in handy for all KB loooms

  • Brilliant! This will help me continue to work a a blanket using the S KB loom?

  • I have made a similar set up with some blocks on my KB rotating loom so I could use my KB orange loom, and it worked, but I seriously love what your team came up with, and would love to give these a try? Thanks to your team for always coming up with great ideas?

  • Where is the add to cart? Can’t find the option to buy….

  • This is an awesome idea! When will it be available?

  • Interesting

  • Hi
    Can I use the rotating connectors on a loops and thread s loom ?

  • Is there a round loom I can make a hat with Chunky wool.(6). Also
    is the small loom on the Rotating Loom the hat size for a baby?

    Thank you kindly

    Fran

  • Do you have a bigger floor version?
    I have a set of the table top connectors.

  • Will you be selling the loom holder and connectors separately? I do not need anymore looms, but I would really love to have the holder and connectors and would purchase them immediately if they became available. Buying more looms would just be a waste of money for me as I have all I need or want. Just the holder and connectors would be wonderful.
