Loom knitting is the most basic technique of making a scarf. It can be used to make any size wrap, single or double. The easiest scarf, made by looping, cast on over the e-wrap or how many e Wraps as you like for the circumference of the scarf you intend to make. Knit the following row. Purl the following row.
Continue alternating purl and knit rows till your scarf become as long as you wish it. Once the scarf is equal to the desired circumference, knot the end of it. By purling first then knitting, you can create a sleeker wrap around your neck. If you wish to make a longer one, just continue knitting and knotting your way till the desired length. However, if you just want a thicker scarf, start with a shorter circular loom knitting patterns.
As mentioned above, looping makes a straighter scarf. It gives an elegant look to your apparel. However, when looped, the beauty of the loop is lost. If you want to create a uniform look, either put the loop in front (back) of the hook, or tie it in the back after tying it with a knot. This is also applicable when making wraps and other types of wraps with circular knitting patterns.
The scarf is one of the most basic yet functional crochet patterns, so let’s take a brief look at how to do a looping scarf. First of all, loosen the two ends of your existing scarf. It should not be too tight as you have to maintain your balance while looping your new scarf. Once you are loosened, pick up your yarn that is approximately the same size of your wrist measurement – this will help to make your looping process go smoothly.
Finding Loom Knitting Patterns
To begin your new project, it is best to follow the standard pattern. There are so many great loom knitting patterns that are available online today. One example would be “Bourbon Crochet Scarf” by JoJo Designs. This is an example of a great scarf pattern that is not only easy-to-follow but visually appealing. Once you have picked out your pattern, find the thread that is indicated on the pattern. This thread will allow you to purchase the right amount of stitches to use.
To make the loops, start to wrap your yarn around the hook, just like you would for any other knitting pattern. Then, slide the hook through the first loop you created. Repeat this process until all loops on the hook are in one long strand. The perfect place to begin your new project would be under the arbor of a tree branch so that the loop you create will be hidden when you hang it from your head or arm.
Now that your project is complete, it is time to move onto the needle knitting patterns. The most common methods for this type of sweater are the cable knitting pattern and the double-knit stitch. For the cable knit, a single long strand of yarn is run from your hook to the needle. Yarn can be run in either direction, or diagonally. The stitches will alternate back and forth between the two sides of the needle. It can be used with all different types of stitches, including stockists, knights, slipsts, and more.
