Tutorials

Can’t figure out how to do something?  Let’s see if I can help.  🙂
Here is a list of my tutorials (some strictly for the Kiss Loom, some just for Knifty Knitter and like looms, some for both).  Keep checking back in the future as I plan to add more.  Thanks!

For Kiss Looms:
Bobbles on the Kiss Loom

Cables on the Kiss Loom

Skipped Peg Short Rows

For Knifty Knitter and similar looms:
Cables for the KK

For all looms:
ssk and k2tog (as done in needle knitting)

yo, ssk and k2tog, yo (alternate method for when slant doesn’t matter)

KFB Increase  (Knit into the front and back of stitch)

Loomed Sock Worksheets (a must have for the Kiss Sock Loom or the DaLooms EvenKnit Loom)

    Oh, my gosh! This is great! I am new to loom knitting, and have never knitted. I have yet (until now) found instructions that make sense to me. Great job!

    Any more coming?

    Thanks, Robin, for great tutorials. It’s a delight to have instructions specifically for Kiss looms. Those for pegged looms do not always work on the Kiss.

    Hi Robin,
    I am wondering if you have a video tutorial for purling on the Kiss loom.

      No, I’m sorry. I don’t have any videos. But if you google the Kiss Looms website (can’t recall their address at the moment) they have a video on how to do it. Hope that helps you! 🙂

    Hi Robin
    I enjoyed your tutorials – very clear and easy to follow. I’m a newly addicted ‘loomed’ so I haven’t had an opportunity to try anything but simple patterns. After reading your KFB tutorial though, I’m wondering how this could be accomplished when one has a loom full of stitches and the need to create this stitch several times in one row and no empty pegs available?

      Well, it’s not possible if all your pegs are full. But if you did have the extra empty pegs and there are several increases in one row you would probably find it easiest to run an extra strand of yarn through all your loops on the loom (making sure to keep them all facing the correct way) the. Place them back on the loom (making sure they are not twisted and being placed exactly how you removed them) stitch by stitch, leaving an empty peg open for your increase. It’s going to take much longer than if you were needle knitting, but it is possible. I hope my explanation helps and is clear.
