I think I'll give it another go now. Things like how to get nice looking edges and how to get your start and finish edges the same width. Already answered Not a question Bad question Other.
When I attempted to make my first one right when I started to be making progress my pegs towards the middle were like squeezed together and it was very hard to get the loops from the top to the bottom and it looked like the pegs were going to break off.
I have just started my second one and am not tying and holding as tight. Tension is probably the hardest part of loom knitting. In the beginning, it helped me to use a slightly stretchy yarn. I would estimate that 6 pegs would still be appropriate for width.
The scarf I made here is 6 pegs wide and measures about 3 inches. I would like to give it a try, Although I am not sure if I will be able to do it, But I liked the way you have expressed everything with pictures. The instructions made it so easy for me to do. Made a small scarf for my 5 month old niece in no time! Thank you for giving clear instructions and pictures you have no idea how appreciated that is!
They really make it much easier to understand. It is blocking the first few words of each sentence. Thanks for letting me know! What kind of device are you using? Hi Keri, I was wondering if u knew how to crochet a scarf. I really appreciate it if u could make a tutorial on it. Since u did a great tutorial on making a scarf using a loom, I wanted u to make a tutorial on making a scarf in crochet.
Hope u could reply. I have a crochet scarf tutorial right here: You can use my hat tutorial as a guide: Skip the part about making the brim. Just go around until the scarf is the length you want. You can add tassels using the same method, just flatten the tube and pass the tassels through both sides to close up the ends. I make scarfs on rectangle loom, why is it that beginning rows are always so loose? What can be done to tighten them? I have that problem too. My best solution is to use stretchier yarn so it pulls closer together as it comes off the loom.
The tassels also help with spacing. I found this video https: Your tutorial was very easy to follow. I think I had a couple of oopses along the way but nothing major. Thanks for the clear instructions and pictures. The beginning is stretchy but with this bind off, it is tighter at the end. I have tried to go back to the start and find first stitch and pull it tighter, but now I just have a mess.
I have heard of others having success with blocking the finished scarf. This site uses Akismet to reduce spam. Learn how your comment data is processed. Check your email to confirm.

If I wanted the scarf to be wider, would I just use more pegs? You showed the steps in a very easy way. You made it easy to learn and get started.
The first time is always the hardest! And working on Amazon as well. I have finished knitting the scarf! I love all of your videos, Denise. They are really helpful to me, since loom knitting is new to me. I started making this scarf, though, and the sides curled up so much that it looked like a tube. I ended up ripping it apart and making it in a garter stitch — which lies flat perfectly!
I understand that there are blocking methods that can be used, but the scarf I made is for a child — who will likely get it dirty. My fear was that, after washing, the scarf would go back to its original tubular form. Is there any way to make a flat panel using ewrap stockinette stitch without resorting to blocking?
This is an excellent video, especially since this is my 1st attempt at any type of needle work. I have made several attempts at adjusting it, but I either do it too loose or too tight. Is there a trick in knowing how tight I should start it out at? Kathy just leave it loose — you can tighten at the end — here is a video for the technique: Hello Denise I enjoyed watching your video!
A friend gave me a wood loom for Christmas! I am absolutely thrilled to have found this video. As a new loom knitter, I have watched other videos and read lots of directions, but this is the first thing that has really made sense. Your instruction method is perfect. Thank you so much! Here is the link to my favorite video: I did this scarf for my wife as a Christmas gift. It is looks really great but the ends roll real bad.
What did I do wrong? Here is one of my favorite videos: I am new to looming. Your videos are awesome. I do have one problem I was hoping you could enlighten me…….. You might be a tight knitter and need to switch to a different version of the knit stitch: I would love to try making this scarf.
At the beginning of the video you mention that 1 skein or yards g of worsted yarn are needed for this scarf, using 2 strands. Is that yards per strand or total? Would that be enough for the entire scarf or would I need 2 skeins? I look forward to watching more of your videos.
Thank you for your reply. I made this scarf last night. One slight problem though, mine came up short. I used the entire ball of yarn Red heart super saver 4. Not sure what I did wrong. Maybe my knits were too tight? Has anyone else had this issue? Cat, hard to say what happened — I ended up with a lot of yarn — Here is a really cool yarn calculator. Hi Denise, Thank you so much for making this video!
You definitely made this easy to learn and even my 3yr old niece was able to do it. Hi Anita, Yes — sky is the limit on infinity scarves — in fact any stitch pattern can be turned into an infinity scarf.
I would suggest the modified basic bind-off Hope that helps. I love ur tutorial and how u explain things. It makes the process a whole lot easier and actually very enjoyable. Thank you for your tutorial.. I am starting my Christmas gifts early and this is making it so easy and fast.. Have you tried the KB adjustable hat loom? What are your thoughts on it.. Look forward to seeing all you do…Mahalo thank you. Hi, I want to make this scarf for my boyfriend who is 5.
Do you think its long enough for him? The general rule is that the length of the scarf is equal to the height of the person wearing it…. I saw where you did the ends before the fringe but what about the sides? Hi Bonnie, the ends will curl a bit. To stop that block the scarf. When its dry then fold it flat and put it under a heavy book for a few days.
Hope that helps, denise. I had already thought about blocking it but I thought I might be doing something wrong in my knitting. Denise Canela, I am so thankful for this video. I am new to loom knitting and watching this video answered so many questions. I especially liked the bind off steps you do and I really really appreciate resolving the problem with the lose cast on stitches. I am anal about this stuff, it was bothering me that both ends were always different one lose and one perfect and you solved that problem.
Thank you sooooo much! The scarf on this video is so beautiful. Hello, I really appreciate your detailed video and explanations. I have a few patterns I would love to try for dish cloths and start right out confused it says to cast on waste yarn!
No explanation as to what this is or how to do it. Do you know of any reference ie books or courses on line or dvd that would show how to do some of these things? It also states to remove from loom an unfinished project and to replace it on the loom but in a different configuration. I am hopelessly confused. How would I prevent the project from unraveling or loosing stitches before its done if I remove it from the loom?
I would really like to learn this but if patterns keep referring to techniques without explanation I cant see my being successful! Hi AJ — Sorry for the delay. I did find you some videos that should help with your yarn waste cast on also called rag.. Here is a pattern with a video: Things like how to get nice looking edges and how to get your start and finish edges the same width.
Never again will I get one end that is smaller than the other! Even though spring is almost here, I think I need to knit a few scarves!

Most knitting looms are made to create a firm fabric with bulky yarn. A worsted weight yarn with give you a medium weight scarf with looser stitches, while a sock or lace weight yarn will give an open fabric with a lot of drape. To change colors, wrap the next row with the new color and knit. Jan 22, · The Ribbed Scarf. This is a fairly basic scarf which will let you practice the two stitches you just learned: knit and purl. The ribbing on this scarf will make it skinnier than it will first appear on your needles. The Pattern: CO 38 st. (for a skinny scarf: 18 st.) Row 1: Work 2x2 rib across row, beg with K2 and ending with K2, 0549sahibi.tks: Yes, when you knit a scarf in the round, you join the ends. Yes, this creates a tube. What this gives you at the end is a double-layered scarf, which fulfills the usual warm-and-snuggly mandate of a scarf nicely, and which gives you stockinette on both sides and lays flat -- no curling side edges, no ugly wrong side.
