hi everyone, I want to make a cowl using the yellow loom. Does anyone have a pattern or suggestions on what stitch to use?

Thanks,
Tracie

This is a really easy cowl pattern but it requires that you register with Lion Brand for the free pattern. Just enter a user name and password, basically...they have other patterns for free as well here:

I've spent a bit of free time over the last few days reading this entire thread from start to finish (yep, all 101 pages), and I wanted to say thanks for all of the incredibly useful posts, links, and hints that are contained herein. (Also, hello! I usually sew and hang out over in the "Toys, Dolls, and Playthings" section. Tongue)

I can't figure out needle-knitting at all (I've tried, but it was disastrous!), and accordingly I was given a set of round looms for Christmas (along with Isela Phelps' book, "A Beginner's Guide to Knitting on a Loom", and a big bag containing a large amount of yarn), and I'm going to get started tomorrow. My first project is going to be a small carrying-bag for a Kindle which will be a gift, but after that I have several plans for making plushies with the looms, which I can see being a lot of fun. I will be sure to post those here at some point. Smiley

Thanks again for all of the information and advice in this thread!

I made the cowl from Lion Brand Yarn's site. It was really fun and fast. I ended up not putting the pom-poms on it, though I might on the next one I make. I found it helpful to baste a line with waste yarn to mark where I should sew the turned top edge down. I did this before trying to take it off the loom.

I don't do a great job of taking pictures of myself, so my four year old son let me take a few shots of him in the cowl. This is the best of the lot. This yarn is blue and teal and chestnut brown. It does not photograph well. It's Lion Brand Homespun in the colorway Lagoon. I think I might have enough left in the skein for a hat. Smiley

Alwayinmyroom, it was fun to do. I just cast on another one. This time, I will be more careful to not do the first few rows as tight. I didn't want pom poms on the blue one, but if I did, I would have had trouble flattening out the bottom of the cowl because I wrapped my pegs tighter than I should have. It rolled up, and I just let it stay that way.

I wore the blue one out in the cold yesterday, and it was better than a scarf at keeping me warm. One thing I really liked was being able to keep the lower part of my face warm without having the steam from my breath fogging up my glasses. When I keep a scarf over my face, my glasses fog up immediately. I'm nearsighted, so that's not a good thing. The cowl works by acting as a wind-block, but it's far away enough from my face to let my breath out. Every one of my coats will have a coordinating cowl asap.

I saw that you were going to make it. I found it on Lion Brand's Site, and had been meaning to try it. I finally printed it off when I saw your link. It's wonderful evening project.  Smiley

I cast on mine as well--it is a bright red wool...and I do want the pompoms because I got a pompom maker for Christmas! Cheesy

My coat is black so it will be nice...thanks for your tips...I can't wait to sit back and get it done!  I thought the Lion Brand one was the best one I could find...I keep hunting patterns even though I am not suppose to be buying yarn, right? Cheesy (ie Destashing again in 2011!)

I just saw this one, which would not be as good for keeping cold off the face, but looks easy and fun to make as an accessory. If you've ever made a hat with a brim on the KK, this is just a giant brim.  Smiley

I think you would have to be careful to use a drapey yarn. If not the Lion brand homespun, something with a soft hand.
