36 peg rectangular knitting loom
red and yellow yarn
This scarf is incredibly simple to make. There are a few little fidgety things, but it is mostly just basic repetition. This is a great project for keeping your hands busy while listening to an audio book or watching television.
Step 1: Anchor With a Slipknot
Put the slipknot loop onto the anchor peg on the left end of the loom, and pull it tight enough to keep it in place.
Step 2: Cast On
Wrap the yarn clockwise so that it goes around the peg once, then pull it up between the second and third pegs on the top (far) row.
Wrap the yarn counter-clockwise around the second peg on the top row, then pull it down between the third and fourth pegs on the bottom row.
Continue wrapping every other top peg counter-clockwise and every other bottom peg clockwise until you get to the right-hand end of the loom.
Step 3: Turn Around
Wrap the yarn counter-clockwise around the last peg on the bottom row.
Pull the yarn up and wrap it clockwise around the last peg on the top row that does not have yarn on it.
Continue wrapping clockwise on the top and counter-clockwise on the bottom until you get to the left-hand end of the loom.
This completes a single row.
Step 4: Push Down
Push all of the yarn down the pegs.
Step 5: Second Row
Cast on a full row so that you have two rows on the pegs.
