Whimsical Loom Knits – Lacy Luminaries

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.




Knitting Loom:  KB Small 32 peg Loom

Yarn:  Knit Picks Comfy Worsted in Ivory and in Peony was used for the samples.

Notions:  Knitting tool, scissors, yarn needle, pint sized glass jar, tea light, 24” length of twine, any desired embellishments (buttons, flowers, charms, etc)

Finished Size:  3.5” in height by 10.5” in circumference

Gauge:  Not essential for this project.


K: Knit

K2tog: Knit two together

P: Purl

YO: yarn over

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.


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

Rounds 1-4: K2, P2.

Rounds 5-6: Knit all stitches.

Round 7: [K2, YO, K2tog] 8 times.

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.

  1. 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!

  2. 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!
