How to Make a Knifty Knitter Scarf | Photos and Patterns for Knifty Knitter Scarves

The long looms are generally used to make a Knifty Knitter scarf. This is because there are some stitches available on the long looms that lend themselves to scarves and can't be done on the round looms. However, tube knitting on the round looms does make a wonderful double thickness scarf. Have fun browsing the many different ways to make Knifty Knitter Scarves.
The photo on the left is a collection of many different Knifty Knitter scarves. The first two (left to right) are pink and blues scarves done in the honeycomb stitch. The next four scarves (multicolored, blue, purple and black) are done in the figure 8 wrap stitch, the final black scarf is tube knit on the round Knifty Knitter loom. Read on for detailed instruction for making each of these scarves.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
To the right is a photo of the honeycomb stitch in more detail. This is an alternating of the double ribbing stitch to opposite pegs every 5 rows to make the "honeycomb" pattern. It is a very visually appealing and dense knit that is perfect for a scarf because it doesn't roll.
Here is an up close photo of the blue scarf also done in the honeycomb stitch. The yarn used for both the pink and blue honeycomb scarves was Red Heart Super Saver yarn. Two worsted weight yarns were wrapped together as one to give extra thickness to the finished scarves.(Pattern)
 
 
 
 
 
 

Figure 8 Knifty Knitter Scarf
The figure 8 wrap (shown in the next three photos) is one way that the cross ribbing stitch can be made on a long loom. It is a quick and easy way to make a scarf and one of the preferred methods mentioned for making a Knifty Knitter scarf on the Provo Craft website. Provo Craft manufactures Knifty Knitter looms.

The same blue Red Heart Super Saver worsted weight yarn was used to make the figure 8 wrapped scarf in the photo on the left. Only 1 strand of the yarn was used for this scarf to make a lighter weight springtime scarf.


The scarf in the photo on the right is another figure 8 wrapped scarf, or scarf done with the cross ribbing stitch.  We like to call this one the "Jelly Bean" scarf. It was done exactly as the scarf above, with one strand of worsted weight yarn, but the multicolored yarn gave it a new look all it's own.

The next two scarves seen on the left were done with Peaches N Creme worsted weight cotton yarn (black) and Red Heart Super Saver worsted weight polyester yarn (purple). They are also done with the figure 8 wrap on the Knifty Knitter long looms. However unlike the blue and multicolored scarves, the loom was wrapped with two strands of yarn, used as one. This gives the scarves a added thickness, as you can see from the photos. These are more suitable for winter scarves. Doubling the number of strands of yarn used while wrapping a Knifty Knitter loom for a scarf makes it perfect for winter. (Pattern)
 
 
 
This final Knifty Knitter scarf was made as a tube on a round loom. Two
strands of Knit Picks Swish DK cotton yarn was used to wrap the loom in the ewrap. The scarf is knitted by knitting off continuously in a clockwise direction around the loom until the tube reaches the desired length. You can then sew the edges closed with a yarn needle to encourage the scarf to lie flat, or add fringe to the edges.

The Knit Picks yarn used to make this scarf is incredibly soft and will never cause static in your clothes and hair. It's highly recommended for making scarves on the round Knifty Knitter looms.

Knifty Knitter Hats

posted May 18, 2011, 2:54 PM by HS Schulte

The round Knifty Knitter looms are generally used for Knitting hats. The set comes with 4 looms, sizes XL, L, M, and S. The XL loom is for adults. The Large loom is for children's hats. The Medium loom is for babies, infants and dolls. Finally, the Small loom is suitable for mittens and socks.
The hat in this photo was done using the following pattern:

The honeycomb stitched scarf, in the photo on the left, was done on the long Knifty Knitter looms. The stitch is wrapped back and forth across pegs on both sides of the loom, but the result is a flat panel knit that doesn't roll at the edges. Because the wrap requires using pegs from both sides of the long loom, it can NOT be done on the round, circular Knifty Knitter looms.  The honeycomb stitch is for the long looms only.

The honeycomb stitch gets it's honeycomb appearance by alternating the wrap, or cast on, of the ribbed stitch. By changing the direction the loom is wrapped every 5 or 6 rows, the ribbed stitch takes on new honeycomb dimensions.

Pattern for Making the Honeycomb Scarf


Round Loom Child's Hat

This hat was created on the red round Knifty Knitter loom using one strand of polyester yarn. It is the appropriate size for a baby. For an older child, I recommend using the larger green round loom. For an adult, use the largest, or yellow round loom in the set.

Scarves

I thought it would be helpful to show a photo of a collection of scarves made on the Knifty Knitter looms side-by-side. The first scarf left to right is done in the honeycomb stitch with 2 strands of polyester yarn. The second scarf is done with 2 strands of polyester yarn in the honeycomb stitch also. The third scarf is done with one strand of multicolored polyester yarn in the figure 8 stitch. The 4th scarf is done with 1 strand of blue polyester yarn with the figure 8 wrap/stitch. The 5th and 6th scarves (purple and black) are done in the figure 8 wrap with 2 strands of yarn.

You can see that increasing the number of yarn strands from 1 to 2 increases the density and thickness of the knit. One strand of yarn, as used in the multicolor and blue scarves, result in a light-weight airy knit perfect for Spring. The purple and black scarves are dense and are suitable for winter. The purple scarf is done with polyester yarn and the black scarf is done with cotton.

The final black scar
f is a tube knitted scarf done on the blue round loom. The ewrap was used to knit the double sided tube. Two strands of cotton yarn were used (DK swish) and it results in a very soft scarf . This black tube knitted scarf is shown to the left as a work in progress.

None of the scarves in the the collection photo above are prone to roll at the edges and do not require blocking.








This photo is a large panel of knit created using the ewrap. The ewrap is a way of wrapping the loom, or casting on. This method of wrapping creates the very basic knit stitch.

The knit panel seen in this photo was done with one strand of Peaches N Creme brand cotton yarn.

Nutmeg Knit Scarf on the Long Loom









This scarf, in the photo on the right, is done on the pink long loom. The no wrap stitch is used. The no wrap stitch results are very similar to that of the the ewrap (a flat panel of basic knit stitches results), but with the no wrap stitch the pegs are only wrapped when casting on the very first row. After that the yarn is simply laid across the pegs to begin knitting off. For detailed instructions on the no wrap stitch, see the instructions below. The flat panel knit seen here will need to be blocked when the scarf is finished, as the edges will turn slightly. This scarf was done with very soft Swish DK yarn in the Nutmeg color.

No Wrap Stitch Instructions




No Wrap Stitch Scarf on the Long Loom

This scarf was done with the "no wrap" or knit stitch as a tube on the pink Knifty Knitter long loom. The pink loom is the smallest long loom in the set. Because it was done as a tube, the edges never roll and the fringe holds the to sides of the tube together at each end, so it lays flat.


Fingerless Gloves or Mittens

This fingerless glove was done on the round blue Knifty Knitter loom using the ribbed stitch. As you can see it curls slightly around the wrist. The top of the glove is held tightly in place and prevented from curling by mattress stitching the thumb hole in the wrong side of the glove (turned inside out). Ribbing, or the rib stitch, is perfect for cuffs and hems of sweaters, hats, gloves, or any other finished project that needs a snug fit.
