Black Scarf

I started this scarf last Friday and it was a really quick knit. I used the long, purple Knifty Knitter loom following the knitting instructions that came with the loom except that I only wrapped about 1/3 of the pegs to make a skinnier  scarf. The yarn is I Love This Yarn from Hobby Lobby in Black which is a very soft acrylic. I’m happy with how this turned out.

  1. Hi GretchKal, I love the stitch you used on your scarf, I see you also used it on your blanket in the picasa picture site too… can you tell me how you did that, please and also how you started it, the cast on row, I have been working on a blanket for my nephews and have been ewraping it and I am so ready to frog it, it just sits in a basket in a corner and I am not even dealing with it… btw, I saw your site from the yahoo group KKLooms. Keep up the awesome site!!

    • Hi, Nelle! I knitted this scarf using the long, purple Knifty Knitter loom and just followed the cast-on and wrapping instructions that came with the loom. I think it’s called a Figure-8 Wrap and that’s exactly how the cast-on is done too. It makes a very textured, thick double knit (it looks the same on both sides) that’s really unique looking.

      For the blanket your talking about I actually used the green, round Knifty Knitter loom and used a simple e-wrap cast-on and e-wrap knitting. This creates a different looking stitch on both sides of the knitted piece. One side is stockinette and the other is purled. If you’re looking for a stitch that’s the same on both sides you might try a garter stitch. FYI: This is created by knitting one row (either flat stitch or e-wrap) and then purling the next row.

      Thanks for visiting and for the kind comments!
