Tie a slipknot in the end of the red yarn.

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

Pull the working yarn, as opposed to the bit hanging off of the anchor peg, downward between the first and second pegs on the top (near) row.

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

After wrapping the very last peg on the the top row, pull the yarn straight down between the two last pegs on the bottom row.

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

Wrap the yarn clockwise around the first bottom peg.

Cast on a full row so that you have two rows on the pegs.

This is an amazing instructable! I really have to achieve a knitting loom somewhere.

I know it's probably difficult to say anything about, but could you give a hint to, how long it takes to make a scarf as long as the one in the picture?
this looks really awesome!

Thanks!
it's not hard for me to love it: I love Harry Potter and I love knitting :)
Neat! I've never seen a loom like this used before! It looks like it makes a really nice, comfy and warm scarf :D
