Free Patterns

You’ll find my free patterns on this page.  They should be labeled whether they are done on the Kiss Loom or the Knifty Knitters.  And if I think they can be converted, it will be noted.  🙂  To receive your free download, just click on the title of the pattern.

Kiss Loom Patterns
Summer Spirals
Summer Spirals

This is a good hat for warm months, hence the name ‘Summer Spirals’.  This pattern doesn’t convert to the KK so well.  The eyelets aren’t as open looking, but it is still doable if you would like to try.

Robin and Lace
Robin & Lace-fashion scarf

This scarf is a lace pattern created specifically to celebrate the Kiss Loom’s first birthday!  It can be done on just about any loom with 15 pegs, but I would keep it to a small guage or finer, otherwise it might look pretty funny.  LOL!

Jeannette Knitting Tote
The Jeannette Knitting Tote

This tote is named after my good friend, Jeannette Pirkle.  She sent me the yarn for my birthday, so that I could make myself a felted baguette.  She had no idea that I would end up making up a new pattern.  LOL!  This was done on the Kiss Loom, but the pattern is vague enough that it could be done on just about any loom as long as you use the appropriate yarn to accomodate the guage of the loom you are using.  NOTE:  The larger guage loom you use, the larger your front and back panels will be, so it is probably best to decrease the number of rows for those sections.

McCoy Mitts
McCoy Mitts

This is another pattern that was designed especially to celebrate the Kiss Loom’s first birthday.  It was done on 24 pegs and I think that it could be done on the blue round KK and Lion Brand Thick & Quick, with no changes to the pattern.

Knifty Knitter PatternsStrawberry Sundae Delight
Strawberry Sundae Delight

Done on the red round KK and easily converted to other round KK looms, this was the second hat I ever designed.  And here I thought it was the silliest hat on earth, but my daughter loved it so.  I soon taught the pattern in the Loom Class Yahoo Group and I had about 40 enthusiastic students and all kinds of spin-off designs including toilet paper covers and tissue box covers and some booties to match.    It made me very proud of the hat and all my students!

Woven Ribbon Hat
Woven Ribbon Hat

This hat was done on the green round KK loom.  It has a ribbed brim and an eyelet row to put the ribbon through.  The hat on the pattern is done in white, while this one is black.  I wanted to show that it could be done in different colors.

    Hi Robin! I’m new to looming but am a seasoned knitter. Which loom do you prefer? I see you use the KISS loom as well as the KK. I have the KK looms and know they are flexible. The KISS looms look a little more complex with possibly easier knitting.

    Hugs, Joan

      The KK looms are very limited. They are a great starting tool, but you can only do so much. I love my KISS looms. Not only are they great to work with, but the man that makes them is very kind and helpful. 🙂 Now, there is a learning curve to the KISS, as there is with any other loom that is different from the KKs. The pegs are all closer together than the KKs, and you teach yourself to wrap the yarn in front of the pegs but behind the pins. But with the KISS looms, those pins allow you to wrap an entire row at one time, even if you have to put purls in there, and then come back to knit off your pegs. It makes for much faster knitting. Also, to be noted, you can get from a small/regular gauge (really depends on the knitter’s tension) up to a larger gauge than the KKs with just one loom. And the creator came up with the adjustable looms that allow you to increase or decrease in the round (useful for decreased crowns on hats or increasing for thumb gussets on mitts or gloves) and it also makes it possible to make various sized items on the same loom. Like baby booties to mittens to adult hats on the same loom. They are just so flexible in the uses you will need them for. But I will also tell you that the DecorAccents looms are my second favorite. They are a nice quality, and though they have come up with a few looms that work just like the KISS looms, they still have the familiar peg style of the KKs. Just keep in mind that regardless of the brand you choose, if you are working with a smaller gauge than you are used to, there will be an adjustment period. And 60 pegs being knitted on an extra small guage loom will take the same amount of time as knitting 60 pegs on a large guage loom. Just because the project is smaller (let’s say socks vs a sweater) it doesn’t mean that it will go faster if the peg count you are using is the same. That was a disappointing lesson I learned. 😉
