How To Loom Knit
Weaving is fun, easy and faster than knitting with knitting needles! You may make scarves, headwear, socks and many other things! Weaver’s looms are of different sizes. That’s why you need to choose a weaver’s loom according to the wideness of your work and not the length. You may weave using two colours at once if one the threads that you use is not too thick.
1. Tie a slipknot.
2. Put the yarn on the side peg of the machine.
3. Wrap a long end around the right-side peg clockwise the way it is shown on the picture.
4. Wrap the thread around each peg once clockwise, around the machine.
5. Wrap the thread of the yarn around each peg once again, avoiding the peg that is a bit at the side. Wrap the thread around the side peg several times. This way yarn won’t uncoil.
6. Draw out the lower thread through the upper one and off the peg. Do the same with each peg except from the side one. Remember to do it clockwise!
7. Wrap the yarn around each peg once again. This way you’ll have 2 loops on each of the pegs. Wrap the yarn around the side peg several times. Then, once again, draw out the lower thread through the upper one on each of the pegs. Go on doing it until you do not get the desired length of your item.
8. Stop once your work is finished. You should have 1 loop on each of the pegs, Take the loop from the first peg and put it on the peg on the lower side from the first peg. Draw out the lower loop through the upper one. Take the loop on this peg and put it on a free peg. Do the same with all the rest pegs until there is only one loop left. Cut off the yarn. Leave approximately 4 inches (10 cm) at the end. Get it through the last loop and tight it up tightly.
- If you turn the item out on the wrong side, it will have a stripped look.
9. Our congratulations! You’ve just weaves on a loom’s weaver!
