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
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.
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.
