Fast and easy leg warmers on all-in one loom

These make for a quick and easy last minute gift or just a cool accessory for yourself.
Gauge I made mine in is 22 pegs and 42 rows for 4″ x4″ (10×10) cm
Size: adult length: 35cm (14,5″), to suit an m to l size.
What you need is:

  • all in one loom or ms loom
  • Two skeins of yarn (or more depending on yarn you use) in example I used 246 yards of drops Nepal, a worsted weight yarn 75% wool and 25% alpaca + scrap yarn for stripes.
  • looming pick
  • a needle to weave in ends

How to get started: if you are using ms loom kit it needs to be set up with small pegs in every hole. Pegs need to be evenly divided by 4 if you are doin k2, p2 cuff which I find prettiest. If you prefer k1, p1 then an amount dividable by 2 is recommended.

Cast on 52 pegs (if you are using ms loom you can either cast on 48 or 56 pegs dependable on leg size.
Cuff: Row 1 – 15: *k2, p2* rep till end of row
Body:
Knit using knit stitch till your work measures 33cm (13,5″) from cast on edge.
Cuff end: repeat Cuff.
Bind off using regular bind off.

Tip: be creative. Use different colored yarns to achieve more playful effect or use different stitches to alternate this pattern. Example bellow uses one row of contrasting yarn every 8th row.

Superduper easy cowl on MS loom and weave kit

Cowl with flower

This cowl came about as it was extremly cold and I was knitting upp some things to give away to the homeless shelted we have here. Its nothing fancy but its easy and works up fast, and mostly came about as I dint have any thick yarn to make hats on kk loom. Lets get started:

Superduper easy cowl

You will need:

  • 2 skeins of 50gr worsted weight yarn (to be used and held as one strand)
  • 2 28-hole semi circle pieces, 4 12- hole straight pieces
  • Loom pick of your choice
  • Needle to weave in ends when you are done

Asseble the loom:

Put the 12-hole pieces togather 2 and 2 and attach 28 pieces to them, Using 1 large green peg, mark the start of your row, then place pink pegs in every other hole till you fill your loom (I ended up with 52 pegs placed).

The Cowl:

Cast on by ewrapping every peg, then ewrap them again and knit them off. I did this to get a stretchy end to it.

Knit in the round as following:
Row one: Knit (using regular flat stitch, you dont want it to be too tight)
Row two: Purl

Knit till you get your desired lenght. Mine seems to be at 50 rows as I am kitting up all the yawn in the darker skein. Bind off using super stretchy bind off. Weave in ends and enjoy!
