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

Hi Denise.  I was following your video (which is very good by the way), but I noticed the beginning edge of my square seems kinda loose.  Is this normal? I did the flat cast and did it really tight, but it still seems too loose.  It doesn't look like your square.  Any suggestions?  Thanks.

Hi Wilda. Sorry it took so long to answer. I forgot I has to monitor this new group I'm in. :-)). I did use double yarn and worked it on the blue 30 peg loom. I did 14 rows and then folded it and attached them together. Then I did 18 rows and then closed it shut. The pom-pom on top was crochet using chains of 10. Thanks Denise for posting these!

Hey Wilda,

It's best to use the larger loom even for toddlers. The blue loom is for newborns. I use the green for almost everybody. 

If you're using the Knifty Knitter or any similiar comercial loom it's best to use 2 strands with any yarn 4 (med - worsted weight)  or under. Unless it's chunky - then 1 strand is enough.

Here is a link for my video on how to loom a hat : Click Here

Below is a video on how to make some loopy pom-poms on a flower loom. Their not as cute as the one's on Robins hat. I believe she crochets those pom-poms.

Oh wow ! These hats are reallllly nice. Did Robin use double strands and what size loom did she use, the blue baby size one ? How did she get the loopy pom pom on top ,... I know how to do that on a crocheted hat worked flat and then do the loops across the top edge before gathering the hat and sewing down the side, but am wondering how this is done on a loomed hat....too bad we all didn't live close to each other so we could get together and share our ideas....visual is easier when it comes to a new loomer of which I am, lol .

Great, Denise, I was just about to add a comment that it would be really good if an 8 inch square could be done this way on a loom, and now you are going to work out a way to do just that, brilliant!
