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.

How to Make the Knit Stitch on a Knifty Knitter Loom


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.
