Many years ago, when I was working at a craft store, they brought in some round and rake looms. I was in hog heaven, because I had used that type of ...
Supplies: Thick wool yarn, (wool will keep you warm even when wet) 24 peg round loom (the pegs on this loom are a little closer together so makes a ti...
Definitions: e-wrap – Make a slip stitch loop and attach it to the first peg, the one just right of the anchor peg. First take a pretend pencil and w...
Double stitch: E-wrap 3 rows. Using the loom pick, pull the bottom loop up over the top two loops and off the peg. This makes the stitches very clo...
Purl: Instead of the e-wrap, you place the yarn below what would be the bottom loop.
Using the loom pick, reach under the now top loop (down the groove that is on the front of the peg), grab the bottom yarn, pull it up through the top ...
and put the new loop (the one on your pick) back on the peg. The purl stitch is the one loop by itself.
Ribbing: This is a way to make cuffs, etc. fit tighter. E-wrap one, purl one, e-wrap one, purl one, etc. until you reach the end of the row (you sho...
This will be a flat piece of work. You will not be going round and round like you would for a hat. When you reach the last stitch on the first row, ...
Do the thumbs first. That way when you get the hand of each mitten done, you can quickly put it together and glow in the sense of accomplishment.
Thumbs - make 2 Cast on 9 pegs for double stitch. Work 22 rows of double stitch or about 4 inches. When you are one with the last double stitch row, g...
When done, cut a long (2+ feet). Using the needle, go around the outside of the loom, putting each loop on to the yarn of the tail.
Be sure that you didn’t miss any loops, because once the stitches are off the loom, it’s the world’s biggest pain to try and pick up the missing loop....
Pull all the loops off the pegs, and pull tight into a gather, (this is how you remove a hat and the body of the hand from the loom).
Turn your thumb inside out, and using the needle and tail yarn, whip stitch the thumb close, tying off the yarn at the bottom.
Turn the thumb right side out and try it one for size. You did Great!
Hands – make 2 Cast on 22 stitches, work for a ribbing for 14 rows, (this should be about 3 inches long).
Once you have your ribbing done, e-wrap two more rows, and work the double stitch for 50 rows or a little over 8 inches. Once you have reached your g...
Turn your hand piece inside out, and using the needle and tail yarn, start whip stitching the hand close.
When you reach where the thumb should go, tuck the thumb inside the hand, with the seam edge facing the top of the mitten. Now, whip the edges of the...
When you reach the top of the thumb weave the yarn tail down to the bottom of the mitten.
When you reach the bottom of the thumb, finish whipping the rest of the mitten closed. Weave the tail of the yarn into the mitten.
Turn the mitten right side out and try it on. Warm isn’t it. I bet you could have a snow ball fight with these and your hands would stay warm. Thes...
