Add Yarn to Your Loom Knitting Project

Add YarnAdd Yarn

Add yarn or change colors in the middle of a loom knit project with no problems. Here are two quick and easy tutorials to show you how I do it. One is text, the other a 2 minute video. The purpose was to answer the question, “What do I do if I run out of yarn“. This technique also works for changing colors.

Add yarn

Step One

Make a loop (slip knot) with the yarn you want to add

 

Step Two

Put the loop on the very next peg

 

Step Three

(Optional) Tie the two short ends. I always do this because it makes me feel more secure that the work won’t unravel.

 

It’s that easy. Not much fanfare. Just three simple steps and you’re back in business. Hope this helps. If you add yarn in a different way please share it with us in the comment section.  Ideas of any kind are always good ideas.

    I have a question on this. When I loom knit with two colors, like for example, k2 (green), k5 (white), how can you make the wrong side of the hat look clean and neat and not full of loose yarn? Mine looks like this: http://www.flickr.com/photos/chuntaili/10147742345/

    Appreciate your website! I always check it for useful tips. :)

      Hey Leiza, so sooooooory about the delay in response.. It’s been crazy. I’m trying to build another loom knitting site for Spanish speakers. I don’t think in Spanish so everything takes longer. About the loose fibers inside the hat. I tie them in blocks. Then sew the blocks to the hat. Just to tidy the strings. Not a 100 % perfect solution. A bit hard to explain. The hat is very popular – so will try to do a video before the December holidays. Should explain the hat and the flat drawstring issue.

      Thanks so much for visiting and participating – you make blogging fun. It confirms that someone is out there and likes my work.
      I appreciate you greatly.

        Quite alright. As long as you gave me an answer at all, I’m totally grateful. :) I’m not sure how you mean about tying in blocks. Would love a visual example, most definitely. ;)
