Making Round Loom Scarves on the Knifty Knitters

Updated on September 14, 2014

Round Loom Scarf

How to Make a Scarf on the Knifty Knitter Round Looms

The smallest round Knifty Knitter loom is blue and it's perfect for making tube knit scarves. Because they are tube knit, they are double in thickness.

This scarf is also reversible. The ends are left open, so that the scarf can be turned inside out to show either side of the stitch. The ewrap, also known as the twisted stockinette stitch, is used.

The yarn used in this pattern is Crayon Boucle cotton yarn sold at KnitPicks.com. It is a super soft yarn that you'll enjoy having around your neck. A cotton yarn that is similar in bulk and softness is also sold at Amazon.com: Lion Brand Yarn Nature's Choice Organic Cotton Yarn.

What you'll need:

The blue round loom is the perfect size for making a scarf at 5.5 inches wide. The blue loom is part of the round loom set, as is the Knifty Knitter hook.

* Blue round Knifty Knitter loom

* Knifty Knitter hook

* 2 Skeins yarn of choice

How to Make a Scarf on a Round Knifty Knitter Loom

Making a Round Loom Scarf

1. Begin ewrapping the loom for the first time going clockwise around the loom. As you wrap the loom, go once around each peg wrapping from inside the loom, toward the outside and back in again. This will form the cursive letter "e" around each peg. The top of the "e" should face the outside of the loom. The "e" should cross on the inside of the loom.

2. Wrap the loom in the ewrap a second time, so each peg has 2 loops on it.

3. Grab the Knifty Knitter hook that came with the looms. Knit off by using the hook to lift the bottom loop over the top loop and off the peg. Release the loop to the inside of the loom. The upper loop should remain on the peg. Continue around the loom until all pegs have only 1 loop remaining.

4. Push the remaining loops down to the bottom of each peg.

5. EWrap the loom again and knit off. Continue doing this until your scarf has reached the desired length. (Six feet is a nice length for this scarf.)

Note: As you "knit off" the knit will begin to feed out the bottom of the loom. Once a bit of knit has formed, you can use it to pull the loops down on the pegs after you knit off each row, rather than pushing them down one by one as you did in step 4 above. Just grab the knit and pull to bring the loops down on the pegs.

Removing the Scarf from the Round Knifty Knitter Loom

Time to Bind Off the Round Loom Scarf

To remove the knit from the loom:

1. Beginning with the last peg in the round, remove the loop.

2. Using a crochet hook, pull it through the loop on the peg just before it.

3. Work counter-clockwise around the loom, removing the loops from the pegs and pulling each loop through the one just before it on the loom.

4. When you reach the beginning, feed the working yarn through the last loop and tie a knot.

Round Loom Scarf

In the page above, I used the blue round loom to make a scarf. This video pattern is slightly wider as it is loomed on the red round loom. She shows two ways to bind off either as a gathered edge, or as a flat edge. For the flat edge, she sews through each loop with a yarn needle to remove it from the loom. Do exactly the same thing for the gathered edge and after you've removed the scarf from the loom, pull the working yarn tight and it will gather.
