Round Loom Knitting in 10 Easy Lessons by Nicole F. Cox

We are also celebrating 1/2 Million visits to my blog this month! I can't thank my readers enough for helping to make this blog a successful one and I hope to keep bringing you interesting content. So to celebrate, I wanted to come up with a special free loom knitting pattern to give you. I came up with the Summer Gatherings Scarf.

This scarf is truly special and I think any woman would feel beautiful wearing it. It is made from kid mohair and silk and has a light and airy feel while still being warm and snuggly. It's bright and cheery color will bring a touch of summer to your wardrobe. I used skip/slip stitch to keep the body of the scarf light while opening it up further with rows of eyelets. After loom knitting, the scarf is gently gathered at the sides, giving it a billowy effect.


Difficulty Level:  Confident Beginner
Gauge: 11 sts and 14 rows = 4” in Twisted Stockinette
Finished Measurements: Any length and 12” wide when using loom with ½” peg spacing.

v 1/2” peg spacing loom (35 pegs minimum), CinDWood 36 peg loom used in sample.
v Knitting tool
v Crochet hook
v Measuring tape
v Yarn Needle
v Yarn: 
o   MC:  2 Balls, Knit Picks, Aloft, 72% Super Kid Mohair, 28% Silk, 260 yards/23 grams, Lace Weight, Color: #P861, Name: Daisy.

Pattern Notes:
ü  Scarf is worked as flat panel.
ü  Scarf is gathered on the 2nd set of eyelets with a needle and yarn.
ü  This scarf is versatile when made long and can be wrapped in several different ways.
ü  You can try other looms with this pattern but finished measurements and look will vary. (see our conversion chart on this blog to help with sizing)

Pattern Key
Ewk = e-wrap knit
Skip1 = Skip one peg
Wyib = with yarn in back (of peg)
MC = main color
K = knit
u-k = u-knit (wrap yarn around front and back of peg (forming the U) and knit bottom stitch over top stitch.
Yo-k2tog = yarn over, knit 2 together. Move stitch from peg 1 to peg 2. Lay working yarn over peg 1 and knit the 2 stitches as one on peg 2.

Tips for working with Mohair: Use good light, Mohair is thin and can be hard to see. Mohair is strong once knit but it’s important not to make your sts too tight as it can break when pulling sts over the pegs!
