Hi everyone this is my first topic on Craftster! I made this scarf on my knifty knitter. I used the red loom but not the whole thing. I was the first good thing that I made on the looms. The first thing I made was a hat that was to small lol.
It is made out of regular Red Heart yarn. I think it is a super savers one. I used 1 skine for this scarf.



Let me know what you think!!

Nice colors! Is knitting with the knifty knitter fun?

I remember years ago my grandparents made their own knifty knitter out wood and nails and made ponchos for all the kids in our family (5 of us). It was so sweet of them.

The knifty kintter is a lot of fun and its easy! I dont know how to knit the real way because i dont have any one to teach me but I was able to figure out the looms on my own.

Pretty colors... I'm working with my niece on some kind of oval/square-ish loom.  So far it isn't a scarf but some kind of giant tube.  I guess we'll see what it is when we're done.  You would think the pkg would tell us what we were making, but nOoOo  Roll Eyes  Do you happen to know everything about looms??  Maybe you could tell us what the heck we're making and why!

Life isn't complete 'til you crochet a uterus for a friend.  Just make sure your fallopian tubes point down and not up! No one needs to lose an eye this way! Wink

I love personal swaps for small stuff (including Hershey Kisses!)! PM me for happy fun rockin' good times!

Well if your just going around the loom it'll be a scarf inless you stop lol  but that is the way to make a hat on the knifty knitter. Just sinch off one end when your done.

The best thing to do is search online for patterns. That is what I did because the knifty knitter only comes with one crappy pattern but there are a lot online.
Here are a few links

Smiley That's really pretty, I got Kniffty Knitters for christmas, but I haven't had a chance to make anything with them yet (but my sister-in-law made a hat for my cat  Undecided ). You got me thinking that a scarf may be a great way to try them out.
By the way, Boondock Saints is one of the greatest movies of all time!!

A scarf is easy to make on them. This one rolls up because when i started it i didnt know how to do the purl stick and to make things flat and not roll up to have to knit purl knit purl.  I am making a poncho now and trying to finshes it before summer so i can wear it in the cold weather.

Yes the Boondock Saints is one of the greatest movies ever!

Is that a beagle in your user pic?? I have a beagle. His name is buddy.

wow nice scarf I made a too small hat the first time too but then I went Rosestitchery site and saw a bumble bee hat and I made the pattern but instead of adding the wings I added pom poms my daughter loves pom poms and these have the ear flaps with the ties and she loves it. I want to make a poncho on there maybe one of the site winter83 mentioned has a pattern on there.

There will always be people who say mean words  because you are different, and sometimes their minds cannot be changed. There are many more people who do not judge others based on how they look or where they are from. THOSE are the people whose WORDS truly matter.

So far it isn't a scarf but some kind of giant tube.

If you are making a scarf of the Knifty Knitter you dont go all the way around the thing, if you do that it makes a tube. 

To knit a scarf with it you start on peg "1" wrap all the way around clockwise until you get to the one next to peg one but dont loop over peg one again (you'll have a space between the last peg and the first one.  Then wrap counter clockwise back the way you came until you get to peg one again.  (this is using the smallest loom. 

Now you can either lift your loops over each other like normal, or wrap again so you are lefting one loop over two.
