Knifty Knitter Sweater Patterns

Updated on September 14, 2014

Sweater Patterns for the Knifty Knitter Looms

Sweaters can take a long time to make with straight knitting needles, but on the Knifty Knitter round looms, these projects can be completed very quickly and easily. You also don't have to worry about losing your place when you are knitting a sweater on a loom.

If you have hesitated about making a sweater before, because you hated the thought of making sleeves in the round using those pesky double-pointed knitting needles, hesitate no more! Sleeves are a cinch on the Knifty Knitter looms! It is so easy to do, you will be turning out beautiful sweaters in no time to the amazement and delight of your family and friends!

V Neck Sweater
V Neck Sweater

Women's V Neck Sweater

by Clella Gustin

This is an easy sweater to make if you are new to loom knitting. Once you've done it, you'll understand the basics and you can move on to more complex sweaters. This v neck sweater is made by knitting flat panels on the XL round loom. Two yarns are held together as one when wrapping the loom. You can use either the e wrap or no wrap (stockinette stitches). Some crochet skills will be needed to finish this projects. The pattern calls this "easy," but I would call it an intermediate level project.

Skill Level: Intermediate

You will need:

* Knifty Knitter Yellow Round Loom

* Yarn Needle

* Knifty Knitter Hook

* Crochet Hook - Size J or K

* Red Heart Pine Green

* Lion Brand Boucle Yarn in Green Tones

Do You Prefer Needles or Looms for Knitting Sweaters?

Sound off and let the world know what you think. I prefer looms, because I've never been able to get the tension right with needles. I know that some people don't think loom knitting is "real" knitting. What do you have to say?

Looms or needles for knitting sweaters?

      Me too.....I gave all my knitting needles away. There are tons of loom patterns and so easy to make. Recently made hats, fingerless gloves, baby bonnets, and with left over balls of wool I made balls for babies to play with. Just use the smallest loom e wrap round and round . Run needle thru top draw up tight do the same with the bottom but stuff before you tie tight. Safe for little babies in the cribs. Enjoy !

      Considering the fact that after weeks of lessons, I STILL wasn't able to knit anything of use (and the fact that it frustrates me to the point of clenched teeth and tension headaches)...I'll be going with Looms, 100%!
