1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Loom Knit Baby Cocoon FREE Pattern and Video Tutorial on: May 23, 2015 04:38:05 AM
I was inspired by some awesome grand-moms to be to do a simple, basic and cozy baby blanket. I decided on a pattern of my favorite which is a Baby Cocoon (sometimes misspelled cacoon ) because it so closely resembles a mothers womb. I got busy on A LOT of research before actually starting on the design. I didnt want to make one just for decorative or proping purposes but instead for practical, functional and safe use with a newborn.

On the website post aside from the FREE Pattern you will find a VIDEO TUTORIAL and all of my research notes.


2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Loom Knit The Bamboo Stitch on: May 09, 2015 06:59:16 AM
This stitch really gave me a kick in the behind to translate from knitting needles to loom. But Im happy with the results. The Bamboo Stitch is simple yet classy with a lot of versatility. Like many of my other translations it works well for both men and women.

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Loom Knit Slippers FREE Pattern w Video Tutorial on: May 04, 2015 05:08:04 AM
I was asked by one of my readers about knitting Mary Jane shoes on a loom. I wanted to help this beautiful lady that knits for charity ( Im a sucker for charity knitters ) as well as the one that asked me for adult booties . I also wanted make a pattern that could be used for the The Pink Slipper Project. By merging those three requests I have come up with a Loom Knit Ladies Slippers pattern and video tutorial quick and easy enough for beginners.

You will need a small 24-peg loom. Youre main stitch through out this project will be your basic e-Wrap and 2 rows of Flat stitch. There is a little tiny bit of math and an itty bitty bit of sewing. But the kicker.. YOURE DONE IN 2 HOURS or less depending on how quick you flip your loops!

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Loom Knit Comfort Dolls aka Izzy , Duzuza , Pocket Pals and Softies Doll on: April 25, 2015 09:29:07 AM
Loom knitting is VERY easy and not only are these little guys easy to do they are made of a small amount of scrap yarn. Yay - you can recycle even the tiniest amount of yarn !

This is a great group project even for kids. One basic tube with a little sewing. Here is a link to a FREE Pattern with a Step by Step video tutorial:  http://www.loomahat.com/comfort-dolls/

I discovered them while I was researching charities for my website. These little guys are use for just what their name implies - to comfort children. If you do a quick google search you will be amazed by the number of organizations that use them - from AIDS clinics, hospitals, churches and even the military.
