Loom Knit Cowl – Free Pattern

Loom Knit Cowl - Free Pattern

Recently I had the opportunity to try out the new “Ultimate Oval Loom Knitting Set” from Leisure Arts. It’s a new twist on an old favorite. Easy to hold, and a small gauge so you can use worsted weight yarn instead of bulky like on most circle looms. Yay!

Obviously I had to make a fresh pattern to go with. I’ve never done a loom pattern before, so this is more of a “recipe” than my usual patterns are. Anyone who has worked with a circle loom before should easily be able to understand what I mean (hopefully, lol). The stitch and technique used is really basic. Keeping the two skeins of yarn from getting twisted up in the back is probably the hardest part. Just stop every once in a while to untwist them and you should avoid any tear-inducing knots.

Looming tool

Note: For rounds 31 – 53 we are working a stripe pattern with colors B and C. Change to the new color by simply dropping the old color and wrapping with the new. Do not cut your yarn until you are completely finished with the striped section!

1. With color “A”, cast on (E-wrap) all pegs, then E-wrap again and pull bottom loops over top loops (twisted knit stitch)

2. E-wrap around and pull bottom loops over top loops (twisted knit)

3 – 30. Repeat round 2

Pull fabric up through inside of loom.
Place first loop from round 1 on the peg above it (try to line up with the stitches as best you can).
Pull bottom loops over top loops.
(This is the same way you make a foldover brim on a loom knit hat)

32. E-wrap and pull bottom loops over top loops (twisted knit)

33. Repeat round 32

Bind off, leaving long tail (18-22″)

Try your best to line up the stitches before stitching/seaming.
