Mock Crochet Stitch for the Loom

The Mock Crochet Stitch on a Knitting Loom

mock-crochet-stitch

The Mock Crochet Stitch has a great texture and look. It is not an exact duplicate of a crochet stitch and that’s okay with me because it’s still beautiful and easy to do.

I remember being a bit confused the first time I read the instructions. Like many of you I learn better if I can “see” what I need to remember so I did a short video that shows you how to knit the Mock Crochet Stitch. If you prefer to read instructions I also did that and added some pictures.

I’m thankful that Tina Edgar created this awesome technique that we can now use to make all kinds of knitted art. Thank you Tina !

I wanted to design a Very Simple Slouchy and Cowl pattern specifically for the true beginner. This project turned out even nicer then I had expected. Not just cozy and warm but with a splash of cool elegance which makes it great for anyone.

Best Part of All: I used 1 loom, 1 skein of yarn, knit with 1 strand of yarn and finished the set in just 1 day.

Yarn Holder Bag

The loom knit Yarn Holder Bag is compact, super cute and very useful. Take your knitting on an adventure in the car, the arm-chair or on the walking path. Yes you can knit and be mobile.

Staggered Eyelet

A great stitch for blankets, dish cloths and to add embellishment with strings and ribbon. I have wanted to add this to several patterns but it would work with my large gauge looms, until now. I was able to find a way to tweak the pattern so that it would work with my favorite looms.

Loom Knit Minion Pattern

Loom Knit Minion

 

Some people just got it like that. They capture a concept and run with it. Juanita Husselmann followed a few patterns and within no time she was creating her own. As if that wasn’t enough she goes and designs a pattern for my favorite tiny super heroes, the Minions. They’re yellow (my favorite color), talk baby gibberish, they’re short, chubby and wear fashion forward overalls, I just love them.

Below is her Juanita’s free pattern. Very basic and easy to follow. If you want a printable PDF just click the link.This is her first so I thank her for allowing me to share with my Loomahat.com readers who I know will be kind, grateful and encouraging as always, to this beautiful young lady.

Feel free to leave comments and questions for Juanita or I in the comment section below the post.

Multiples in Knitting a Quick Video Tutorial

Understanding Multiples in Knitting Patterns

Multiples in knitting

 

Multiples in Knitting patterns were a total mystery to me when I first started loom knitting. The little plus sign after the multiples was even more confusing. I tried reading blog post after blog post but just the sheer number of words was overwhelming.

Making it simple for my readers was the objective. Besides, so many other folks have already done extremely well explaining this in writing that instead of reinventing the wheel, I made a short video.

Mock Mesh Shawl Pattern and Video

The Mock Mesh Shawl

Mock Mesh Shawl

The way you decide to wear the Mock Mesh Shawl will create more warmth or more elegance. Wrap several times around the neck and chest will be made for a very warm cowl type of winter wear. The loosely draped will open up the stitch and allow the breezy through the fabric. But the best part of this shawl is that it will look just as well over a simple t-shirt or that little black evening dress.

The pattern is a simple one and follows the stitch pattern that was posted HERE. Below is a step by step video tutorial for us visual learners.  Hope you guys like it .

The Purple Loom Review and Giveaway

The Purple Loom Replacement by CinDwood

Purple loom

 

I have always loved the purple loom by Knifty Knitter. Of all the circular hat looms it was the perfect one. It was hard to find when Provo Craft was actually distributing the Knifty Knitter product. I must admit that finding it now is close to impossible. It pains me to the core considering the great design.

Thank God that CinDwood has created a replacement. I am in love. Let’s look at just three of the many reasons and give you a chance to win your own.

Mock Mesh Stitch Tutorial

Mock Mesh Stitch on a Knitting Loom

Mesh Stitch

The Mock Mesh Stitch pattern is an easy lace stitch that is simple enough for beginners. It can be a bit tricky at first but once you get the concept you’re on your way. As always this post includes text, pictures and a video tutorial.

During my research I came across a loom knit version by Suz from MemoirsYarnAholic.blogspot.com . She created her version of the stitch by starting the pattern like a mock crochet and then knitting every other stitch. I liked the idea but decided I would tweak the pattern and the name.
