Loom Knit Ballerinas Pattern Video

Ballerinas : Dolls on Circular Knitting Loom


I’m super excited about this project. I made five different dolls before I was happy with this one. I hope you all will fall in love with my little ballerinas. I’m sure that like me, you had one at home too.

The project is a bit complex and so I had to create two separate videos. Please return for part 2. The written pattern is for purchase because we have to keep the lights on at home and every little bit helps. I do make the video as comprehensive as possible for those that can not afford the pattern to be able to make this project that I love so much.

    Denise, the $2 for the pattern is that 1 and 2?

    • Denise Canela February 1, 2018 at 9:33 am

      Hi Mary – the $2 is one of the pledge levels for the month. You get all the patterns I made for that month.

      • Mary February 1, 2018 at 12:57 pm

        I wanted to order the $2.00 one but all I found was the $4.99.

        • Denise Canela February 1, 2018 at 4:17 pm

          Hi Mary – the pattern in stores is $4.99. Those with a monthly pledge on my Patreon page have free access to all the patterns I create in the month.

    • Mary February 4, 2018 at 2:23 pm

      yes or is it each

      • Denise Canela February 5, 2018 at 12:47 pm

        You will only be charged once per month – but will have access to all the patterns I design for that month. Could be just 1 pattern – could be 3. It depends on the complexity of the pattern.

        Thank you – those are great questions !

    You are absolutely my favorite loom teacher. I am starting now so that every child in my family can receive a doll for Christmas 2018:)

  3. Mary January 21, 2018 at 2:52 pm

    Love it. Can’t not wait for part 2. You r the best!!

  4. Bethany Dailey January 20, 2018 at 12:50 pm

    These are very sweet and charming! ♡

    I really love this pattern and can’t wait to see it finished and also the other new patterns you have. I learnt a few more tricks you did this time; like how to finish off the top of the arms and legs. You’re getting more intricate and more challenging with your patterns and I think it’s great !!

    Denise I received a set of looms gor Christmas. I am on a learning journey with crochet so I was sure I wouldn’t understand a knitting loom but to my surprise I completed my first hat tonight following your beginner video on you tube. Thank you for all the info you make available on your tutorials. I appreciate that the camera is angled so the viewer can follow along. After many failed crochet projects I finally have completed something I will be delighted to wear or share with someone else. Thanks again!

      That is AWESOME Wanda !

    I purchased the loon set years ago, and I seem to be having trouble with the pegs breaking off, can they be glued on.

    • Denise Canela January 22, 2018 at 9:40 am

      Depends on the loom – usually yes. Also, are the popping off or breaking off

  8. Janine January 19, 2018 at 9:12 pm

    Oh, mygosh! My granddaughter just started ballet and she loves when I knit her things. I can’t wait to try this!

  9. Wilda January 19, 2018 at 4:16 pm

    I can’t wait to make some for my granddaughters. I am a Patreon member. Would you send me the written pattern? Jeri

    • Denise Canela January 19, 2018 at 12:53 pm

      Hi Jeri, THANK YOU soooo much for your support. Once the second video is completed, I will post the pattern on Patreon for download.

    Dear Denise,

    I love your teaching methodolgy. Your tutorial videos are absolutely amazing. They are simple, clear, and to the point. Kindly, make a video on loom knitting ‘baby sweaters’ with ’round neck’, ‘V-neck’, and ‘cardigan’ styles.
    Thank you so much!

    Passionate loom knitter,
    Bushra Zia
