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.

Thanks for the great ideas and inspiration. I'm going to get out my looms and give this a try!

I love those comfort dolls. I hand knitted a few last year. But I think making them on a loom in the round would be easier. I haven't read the pattern yet so I'm only assuming its made in the seaming. Oh gosh I can see today I will explore the squares and the doll on the looms....I'd rather do stuff like this anyhow ! Ha!

More fab dolls, Denise, and I really like the effect of the contrast row between the "feet" and the "trousers"!  Really looking forward to trying out the pattern, and I think your cheat sheet is very helpful indeed, thank you.

Cheat Sheet for Comfort Dolls

Comment by Lucy Wallace on August 25, 2013 at 11:50pm
Oh, Denise, your "Little Lady" comfort doll is absolutely gorgeous, you are so clever to have worked out a loom-knit pattern. I am still away from home without my loom, but it is the first thing I will try to make when I get back!

Finished my first Comfort Doll - An experiment inspired by Lucy Wallace

I did create a Loom knit pattern - The next one will be simpler and a boy. In the meantime here is my "Little Lady"

Here is the link to the pattern :

Hope she brings some folks to KAS

I am away from home at the moment, so without my loom, but I think the basket weave square you have created on a loom is amazing, and I will definitely use your tip in the video about using a piece of yarn as a guide to producing a final square with a length of 8 inches - I can't wait to try it!
