A place to share...

It has been a few years since we all began this wonderful KnitWit journey and we are all thankful that God has taken us along on the trip!!!
This blog has been started so we can share ideas and encouragement in this craft. Loom Knitting is seeing its resurgence in popularity. And for those who are new to this, pattern reading can seem a daunting task. We have all learned so much from each others' unique designs...

So, please chime in!

Triangles on the Round Loom

Triangle Shawls are easier than you tink!!!

 

~ With the large round loom, purl on first row of 9 to 12 pegs.
~ Knit following rows of the same width, until the length is the same as the diameter of your loom.
~ Then with every row out from the beginning peg, wrap one extra peg.
~ Knit the pegs over and then wrap back to beginning peg and knit over.
~ Keep adding until you go all the way around.
~ At the last peg, repeat wrap and knit back and forth 3 to 5 times. (odd number important)
~ After the last knit, with tail at the beginning, reduce by one peg on the other end. Simply lift stitch off last peg and place under the stitch on the next door peg...then knit over.
~ Wrap to the end and knit over and wrap your way back and knit over.
~ Repeat reducing every time you return to the beginning peg until you get to your original width of your sash. (the 9-12)
~ Again, knit back and forth for the 9 to 12 width to finish your sash the same length. (some eyeball this, some measure, some like to count rows...whatever floats your boat!)
~ Take off loom like a normal shawl or scarf.

Fringing looks great, too! Start from under edge of arm and go all the way around and back up.
TAH ~ DAH!!!!

  2. This needs more explanation for us newbies. I don't know what pearling is, plus it's confusing if you don't know what you're doing. Pictures would be helpful.

  3. Hi Janice,
    The best purl explanation I've seen is by Loom-a-Hat. Here's the link for that:

    And you're right, this "pattern" does need to be rewritten! This was one of the first ones that I wrote....about 5 years ago. Will try to get to it soon and repost, or just edit here.
    THANKS for your input and pointing this out :D
