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.
