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!
