Loom a Square

A place for Loom Knitters to share their knowledge and creativity to benefit the children of South Africa.

Loom knitting has it's own pros and cons. Many special and unique methods of accomplishing what needle knitters do and so we need each other. I hope to meet many other loom knitters here but anyone is welcome.


PATTERN and VIDEOs are on the right side of the page, under the list of members.

The cost of shipping within the US is not that much cheaper then shipping your squares directly to KAS in South Africa.But if you're not comfortable with international shipping, you live in the US…Continue

Something you may already know about, but I didn't ! I have now been loom knitting squares for about 8 months, and had lots of tiny balls of yarn left over which were too small to do anything useful with. I found that tying yarn ends together with ordinary knots was not successful because the knots really showed in the finished square and it was also hard to sew in the ends securely. However, I came across this way (it seems it's called a Weaver's Knot or a Russian Knot) of joining yarn on You Tube and I have found it really excellent for loom knitting - you really can't see the join! - so thought I would share the link:

From the US Group Page. Wanted to share it here.  


Would you take the time to vote ?   The Mars company in the UK is looking to help small community charities through their Hot Chocolate Fund. Elaine Jones and Pam Johnson have added their Knit for Life charity to the website.  Here's what Pam had to say:

Please help us to raise £300 [equivalent to $480 US] to buy wool for KAS.  Mars are giving away five lots of £300 every week for the next 16 weeks on their website here -

I have put up an entry for Knit for Life and if we are successful we can get so many squares knitted.  Every week for 16 weeks they will give an award to the application with the most votes, and 4 other awards which they will choose.  PLEASE VOTE for Knit for Life here

to get £300 of wool for KAS which we can use for lots and lots of squares

Wilda that sounds AWESOME !

Comment by Wilda on October 31, 2013 at 3:18am

I finished my garter stitch eight inch square on the loom. I also crocheted flowers and appliqued them on, did chain stitch stems, and embroidered leaves on either sides. I don't know how to post it on here though to show you. Hmmm so much to learn about computers.

Hey Wilda - you are so welcome. You know there are sooooo many cool projects for pom poms - I love those little guys !

Comment by Wilda on October 24, 2013 at 2:48pm

Thank you Denise for posting your video on making a pom pom using that small peach colored loom. It looks really cute and nice and I certainly will try it.A great idea to just sit one day and make a bag full of different colored pompoms out of left over yarns. This way there will be poms ready whenever I want one, haha. Thanks again. 

Comment by Wilda on October 24, 2013 at 2:31pm

@Robin: when you made the crocheted pompoms on your loomed hats, did you add them before you closed the top , working across the flat side then gathering the top which makes them into the pompom? That's what I do when I hand crochet a hat. 

Comment by LoomaHat on October 23, 2013 at 5:20pm

Hey guys, I know I've been a bit quite for a while got a lot going on and I'm looking for a good stitch to use on a square. One the is not too elaborate. Something in between decorative and Plain Jane.. like a triangle pattern. If anyone has an idea... share it 

Comment by LoomaHat on October 9, 2013 at 3:52pm

Hey Robin, sorry for the delay.. been working on a project. Going Bananas.

Yes.. that corner can be tricky.. planing on doing another video on a square with a different pattern. Will focus on showing what to do about that.

Beautiful color combination - Yellow happens to be my favorite color :)
