The Holidays are here! I thought I would kick off the season with a couple of Loom Knit Christmas Ornament Patterns. First, there's Ol' Saint Nicholas. He's a skinny style Santa with a bobble nose and bow mustache. Next, there's a cute christmas tree with a simple bobble to decorate its' top. Both ornaments are super quick and designed as stash busters. Only yarn weights are given so use whatever you have in your stash, get creative with your own yarn choices! I hope everyone enjoys these patterns and the upcoming holiday season. As always, happy Loom Knitting!-Nicole

Have you wanted to personalize your loom knitting but always wondered how?
You can add lettering and pictures to stockinette with a method called duplicate stitch. Duplicate stitch does exactly what its' name describes, it duplicates the v's made by the knit stitch. It does take a little planning before you begin your loom knitting project. You'll want to make sure your project has an area of stockinette stitch (knit stitch). Do not use the twisted stockinette stitch (e-wrap knit). There are many free charts available online for lettering and little motifs. Get creative, it's fun!

How to duplicate stitch

1. Thread a tapestry needle with a long length of yarn.

2. Entering from back of knitting to front, bring your needle up through the bottom of the V. Then go up 1 stitch and bring your needle behind that stitch.

3. Pull the yarn completely through. You now have half of your V duplicated.

4.  Take your needle down through the bottom of the V (this is where you started).

You have now completed your duplicate stitch!

Things to remember about Duplicate Stitch!
  • Like all embroidery, it will stiffen the fabric up as it makes it double thick in those areas.
  • It is used on Stockinette Stitch, in loom knitting you may use the u-knit, flat knit or regular knit stitch.
  • Try to keep the back of your knitting as neat as possible if it will be seen (blankets, etc.)
  •  It's easy to accidentally split your yarn in the back of the knitting by taking your yarn through itself, try to avoid this as it will make it impossible to tighten your stitches and leave loops on the back.
  • You can do lettering or motifs, you can even incorporate cross stitch patterns, just use the duplicate stitch instead of x's in those blocks.

I'm happy to say that we have several new babies coming this year in the family and with friends!
I'm going to be a grandmother for the first time also, which is very exciting. I have been spending most of my time designing patterns for babies. I have always loved the knitted crowns and set out to design a pattern for loom knitters. This little crown is knit in one piece and requires no seaming. There are only 15 rows to knit so it goes fast even though there are a lot of stitches to move to achieve the effect. I hope my readers enjoy this new pattern and can't wait to see all of the little babies in their homemade loom knit crowns.

Pattern description is available below.

#loomknitcrown #loomknittingpatterns #loomknitcrownpatteern #loomknitcrownheadband #loomknitheadband 

Pattern Description For The "Royal Crown Headband"
Perfect for the little Prince or Princess, this headband makes a cute ear warmer or photo prop. Although there is a lot of stitch movement in this piece, you’ll find that it works up quickly with only 15 rows. A natural fiber with elasticity, wool etc., is recommended to make movement of the sts easier and for blocking. The headband is loom knit in the round and requires no seaming! It is meant to be worn as a headband not sit on top of the head (picture is just to show stitching).

Level: Intermediate+

Finished Measurements: Size 0-6 mos., Fits 14-15” head circumference, height is 3 inches. When using wool this headband can be blocked to multiple sizes for infants. This Crown can easily be made in other sizes if desired (Children and adults, multiples are given). This is up to the loomer to change size and peg #'s. Note; if changing size, height is not adjustable.

Loom needed: 3/8” peg spacing loom, using 60 pegs. (KB, All in one knitting board, CinDWood makes this peg spacing)

What are the differences between the four knit stitches?
Flat Knit (stockinette)
U-Knit (stockinette)
Regular Knit (stockinette)
E-Wrap Knit (twisted stockinette)
All of the samples above were knit using
12 stitches and 25 rows,
same loom and yarn.
Yet look at the size difference between the samples.
It's important to understand the differences between these very popular stitches.

Hello, today I worked on coming up with a pattern for this loom knit cat hat. Traditionally this hat is knit flat then seamed up the sides. It can be done that way on the loom also but I wanted to knit mine in the round. The seam will be at the top and not along the sides. I hope you enjoy this pattern!

Cat Hat Pattern

  • Any round loom that will fit the recipients head.  This pattern was written for the 48 peg, 5/8" peg spacing round loom specifically (teen/adult size). It is easily modified to any round loom.
  • Knitting tool
  • Crochet hook
  • Yarn Needle
  • Yarn:  Any is ok with this pattern, Use desired weight/Color should be pink if using for the #pussyhatproject. Sample was knit with 2 strands Vanna's Colors by Lion Brand, Color #214, Geranium. #5 weight yarn. 2 strands used as one.

Foundation round:  Chain CO all pegs; join to work in the round.
Rounds 1-6:  *K1, p1, repeat from * to end of round.
Round 7:  Knit (u-knit or regular knit)
Repeat round 7 until your hat reaches 8.5 inches (teen/adult). Add a quarter of an inch to the length of this hat if using mattress seam to close up hat...see below for other seaming method.

Take your knitting off the loom...
  • Cut 1 strand of yarn 4 inches long (this is only if using 2 strands as one, otherwise skip this step).
  • Wrap the other strand of yarn 3 times around the loom and cut.
  • Bind off using gather method and only one strand of yarn (cut the other tail to 4 inches). Do not gather knitting this is only being used as a lifeline to hold your sts.
  • Seam your hat using the method below. This method will give you a modified/easy version of the kitchener stitch, meaning your seam will have no bump but the loops will show a bit at the top (see pic above). I like this as it accents the ears. You may use any seaming method you desire. True kitchener or mattress seam will work also. 

1. Flatten the hat aligning stitches (front to back).

2. Take your yarn needle through the stitch on the back of the hat. Pointing the needle to the left through the loops.

3. Next, take your needle through the stitch on the front of the hat. Pointing the needle to the right. Repeat steps 2 and 3 until the hat is completely seamed. Weave in ends.
4. Place hat on your head and like magic, the ears will point out!
