About This Class

I love loom knitting! You can knit anything from a small simple hat to a big cozy blanket. In this class, I'll show you my process for making a beanie hat using a round loom as well as a few other basic tools.

This step-by-step loom knitting class is aimed at beginner level students, but all are welcomed to take the course. We will go through supplies needed, casting on, making the brim, knitting the rest of the hat, casting off, and closing the hat.

A Little Bit of Backstory: Several years ago when I was attending college, my roommate taught me the art of loom knitting. I remember having so much fun looming away while we watched episodes of shows (like Doctor Who) together whenever we decided to take a break from studying (which was often).

I've learned a lot since then about the ways of the loom, and I want to share my knowledge with you so that you can experience the joy of creating something for yourself (or a gift to a friend) and smile saying, "You see that cool thing? I made that."

By the end of this class, I hope you have discovered how delightful loom knitting can be as well as learned a new skill to add to your leisure list.

Happy Looming! ^-^

1. Introduction: Hello and welcome. If you don't know, loom knitting is like knitting, but instead of knitting needles, you use a knitting loom and a knitting loom hook. Don't worry. It's easier than it sounds. With loom knitting, you can make something that you can use yourself or gives you a friend. Luminosity is something that I personally love to do while watching TV, listening music. Or if I just want to chill out and rocks for a bit. And I would love to share this wonderful experience with you. I'm harder. And in this class, I will show you from start to finish how to make a lovely beanie hat with the technique known as limiting. If all that sounds great, then join me in the next video. 2. Supplies & Yarn: For this project, you will need yarn around knitting loom. I used my 36 peg loom for the hat in this video. A knitting loom hook, I yarn needle. There's a reading utensil like a pen or pencil, something to write on a sticky note or piece of paper, and a measuring tape or ruler. If you have questions about skin rate or yarn thickness, feel free to check out lesson two of my other skill share class titled make an awesome hat with looming. For this project, I will be using yarn that with medium for weight and I will also be doubling my arm. If you use a thicker, bulkier scanRight, like five or above, you may not need to double your yarn. Ultimately it's up to you and what you want you have to look like. For this project. Since I doubled my yarn, I used approximately 81 yards of yarn. If you decide to not double your yarn, you will need a little over half of the amount. So approximately 41 yards of yarn. After you've got your yarn all set and ready, you can begin by finding both ends of the scheme. This can be a bit tricky depending on the skin or if you're working with a ball of yarn. So if you get too frustrated, you can always buy 2s. Gains are the same color to make life a little bit easier. Once you've found the ends, continue on to cast on and make the brim. 3. Cast On & Make the Brim: In this step, we will make the brim of our bd. This is so that the rows we, we've don't crow back and cause problems. For this brim. We will be using the erupts diction and the Pearl stitch. To start, take the two ends of your yarn and tie a slipknot. Then take the slipknot and secure it to the extra peg on the side of your loop. If your loop doesn't have this feature, you'll have to hold or tape the extra five or so inches of yarn in place. Next, take your yarn and wrap it clockwise around the peg. So this is known as the erat section. Continue on with erupted for one rho 22222. For the next row, we will do the pearl stench. Make sure that the erupt row you just did is at the top of the peg. Now, take your yarn and lay it below the top row. Take your knitting loom hook and hook it through the erect row, coming in from the top hole, they aren't up and scoot the loose yarn underneath. Then rotate your hook and grab onto the loose yarn and pull it up through the Arab row to make a new loop. Grab that loop and pull it off with a peg. Then put the new loop that you just made onto the peg and pull it taught, but not too tight. And on and on and on. And continue to do this for the rest of the row. Next we will do one row of the erupt step. She pushed the row you just completed to the bottom of the PEG. Take your yarn and rapid clockwise around the top portion of the PEG. Continue to do this for the rest of the row. Pro tip. For the erupt stage, I tend to place my finger onto the loop after it spread so that if I miss a stitch, it doesn't unravel on me. Once this is done, take the bottom row of yarn and loop it over the top row. Continue to do this for the entire row. After this is completed, we will pull one row. So like before, take your loose yarn, lay up below the top row. Take your loom, hug and hook it through the Iraq row, grab onto the loose yarn and pull it up through the Arab row to make a new loop. Pull the loop off the peg and secure the new loop to the peg. Continued to grow the rest of the row. Next we will do one row of the Iraq stench. Pushed the row you just completed to the bottom of the PEG. Take your yarn and rapid clockwise around the top portion of the PEG. Continue to do this for the rest of the row. Because once this is done, take the bottom row of yarn and loop it over the top row. Continue to do this for the entire row. And after this is completed, appeal PRO one more row. Once this is done, your cast on slash brim is complete. Congratulations. You may proceed to the next video. 4. Continue the Hat!: Now that we're done with the brim, we can move onto knitting the rest of the bean. Start by pushing down the yarn to the bottom of the pigs. For the rest of the head, we will be using the erupt stitch like you did before in the brim for the erupt stage, take your yarn and rapid clockwise around each peg. Continue to do this for the rest of the row. Next, loop, the bottom row of yarn over the top row of yarn. Until this is done, you can mark one row completely. We will be doing 39 more rows for a total of 40 rows. Pasta brand. I made my hat with 40 rows because I liked my beanie hat to be a little bit more floppy on the top. But you can do however many rosie Like this is where your measuring tape or ruler comes in. And here is a chart that I threw together to help you. It's important to keep a tally of how many rows you have completed so you don't lose track. Some people use a step or a tally counter, but I like to do spews girl pen and sticky note. Now I'll show you my progress for every five rows to help keep you on track. This is what fibro should look like. Now you can take off the extra yarn and the other peg. And here's what ten rows looks like. And again, 15 Rhodes, 20 rows halfway there, if you're a total him 40. And in 20 or 30 rows, 35 rows, and marking down 40 rows. Continue onto the next lesson where I will show you how to cast off and close the hand. 5. Cast Off & Close the Hat: Next we'll cast off and close our beanie hat. First. Take your yarn and wrap it all the way around the loop. Then cut off the excess yarn. Next rule, thread or yarn through each Peg. This is kind of like we did with the postage, except instead of making a new loop, will pull the loose yarn all the way through, like so. When you've gotten about halfway around the loom, you can begin to take the loops after pegs that have gone further through them. Make sure to leave three pegs and pull the loose yarn tight. This should form a half circle shape as seen here. Now, continue to thrive the yarn per each peg until the row is complete. And then take the rest of the loops off the pegs. But leave the last two pegs so that you can pull the loose yarn. And since the top of the hat together. Once this is done, take the rest of the yarn off the pegs and Paul as tightly together as you come next Friday or yarn through your yarn needle. And so it back and forth a few times across the synched opening. And helps to flip the head inside out as you do this so that you can see where your threading the yarn. And then a couple of slip knots on the inside of the hat to make sure it doesn't unravel and cut off the access time will be. Our final step is to go back to the excess yarn we have for the brim and weave it in. You can use your yarn needle for this, but I just use my fingers. Basically what you want to do is weave in the extra strands and then tie them together a few times so that your yarn doesn't unravel. And energy. And cut off the excess yarn. And with your beanie hat is complete. Conquer. Galatians. 6. Closing Thoughts: Well isn't this exciting?
