|You can Find this Looming Pattern Here!|
Although I rarely work off of patterns that are not mine, I found it helpful to do research on reading patterns and understanding how regular knitting is converted to the loom. Here are just a few of my notes on converting regular knitting...

When converting flat panels only:
When a pattern says...Multiples of 6 + 1: Your rows must be in multiples of 6, plus one ending stitch.
Example: 6 + 1 = 7
6 x 2 = 12 + 1 =13
6 x 3 = 18 + 1 =19
You need to cast on a number of pegs divisible by 6 and then add 1.
When converting patterns in circular knitting:
Only knit the multiple and omit the number after the plus + sign.
*When knitting...Needle knitters flip the knitting each row, loomers do not. You must do the following when converting a pattern:
Typically the 1st row is the RIGHT SIDE row...if this is the case do this:
- Leave all odd rows as they are.
- Change all the even number rows to the opposite stitch. (if they have knits change them to purls, etc.)
- Change all the odd side rows (if they have knits change them to purls, etc.)
- Leave all the even rows as they are.
- Chart starts at the bottom right of the first row. Second row starts at the bottom left.
- Odd rows start right to left.
- Even rows start left to right.
- Read the chart from bottom right
- All other rows start at the right side (clockwise)
HAPPY LOOMING! THANK YOU FOR READING!
