The loom I used to make my mini snood is like a very large Knitting Nancy. This snood has a lovely warm feel around your neck without being too bulky. Looming is a great change from conventional knitting and a lot quicker. I have made stacks of hats/beanies for the kiddies undergoing chemotherapy at the Royal Children’s Hospital this way.
Some lovely variations can be achieved by using yarns of different colors and textures. So many things can be made on a loom, hats, scarves, totes, socks and even golf club covers!


Material

  • 1 circular knitting loom - 41 pegs
  • 1 pick
  • 1 crochet hook 3.5 mm
  • 1 darning needle
  • 1 x 50 gram ball fluffy black yarn

Method

  1. Wrap yarn around peg on the edge of the ring, pull the yarn to the inside of the ring between the first and last peg.
  2. Wrap yarn to far side of first peg and go round it crossing at the back. Repeat for the second peg. Keep the yarn LOOSE and continue until all the pegs are wrapped.
  3. Push the yarn to the bottom of each peg and continue wrapping until you have two rows of yarn.
  4. Use a half hitch to hold your yarn in place on the outside peg and using the pick lift the bottom row over the top row and over the top of the peg. Continue with each peg to finish one row of knitting. Note. A slip knot can be used instead of a half hitch.
  5. Repeat steps two to four until 25 cm in length.
  6. Casting off. Cut working yarn leaving a 12 inch tail. Using a crochet hook pick up the farthest away from the yarn tail, then pick up the next loop [on the left] and lift them off the pegs. Pull the second loop through the last loop then slide the crochet hook through the third loop, lift it off the peg, pull the third loop through the second loop. Continue with the rest of the loops and end by pulling the wrapping yarn through the last loop and pull it tight and weave in tail using darning needle. Also weave in tail at the very beginning of your work.
    NOTE. To make the tube looser use the crochet hook and make 1 or 2 chain stitches between each loomed stitch. This makes sure the snood will slip over your head and not be too tight!

Notes... Looms can be purchased at Spotlight in a pack of 3 different sizes and has a pick in it. The cost is under $20, happy looming. I love it!

  • A snood?! So this is a scarf but with ends? The length of scarves can be annoying. No loom here so just knitting and sewing for me.

  • Lovely idea. I still love the traditional way of knitting and crochet beanie or mini crawl. They don’t really take up too much time to complete and it’s just heart warming to know someone will enjoy your finished work.

  • I haven’t had much to do with looming, unless it’s loom bands, but I can see that it would be easier than traditional knitting. I like this idea, my daughter would probably be really into this too.
