Avoid Knitting Ladders with Knitting Looms

Avoid Knitting Ladders on Your Loom Knit Hat

Avoid Knitting Ladders On Knitting Looms

A few of my followers have asked me to show them how to avoid knitting ladders. Ladders happen when you have stitches that are more loose than the rest of the fabric.  They cause an ugly seam down your hat. After finding these on a hat you’ve been working on for several hours is very disappointing.

I’m not going to write out a long post but I have done a 2 minute video that will give you my solution. Remember this is only my opinion and you may know a better way to solve this issue. If you do, write your solution in the comment section of the page.

Avoid Knitting Ladders Video

This 2 minute video deals with the ladder issue on loom knit hats however the technique will work on any project. As always I suggest watching the video completely. I often get questions that are answered in the video. I don’t mind the questions but I’m sometimes so behind that it can take weeks for me to answer you.

    Denise: thanks so much for the video on eliminating ladders when making hats. I took you advice when I first began and make premmie hats while watching all the baseball playoffs. Last year I made 32. Anyway I used your hint to use U-wrap every other row and it worked perfectly. I’ve already made 16 this year but the next 16 will look much nicer without the ladders.
    I also am going to use you suggestion for the invisible stitch for a baby blanket I have in the works. I like it much more than the way the pattern said to do it.
    I don’t consider myself a “craft” person at all but your videos are turning me into a knitter. I love it. Thank you for all you do.

    This is completely unrelated but how long did it take you to get really good at knitting? I’m a beginner & it is so overwhelming for me. But I don’t wanna give up. Its been probably a little over two weeks & I’ve knitted little scarves on a mini loom to practice different stitches. But I’m confused on a lot of things like knitting my last peg, using an anchor peg, etc. I like knitting. It’s challenging but also therapeutic & I get to produce something beautiful with a functional use! But it has been kicking my butt & I just wanna know if it was the same for you.

      Hi Jay, I’m not really good at knitting – I’m on a perpetual quest for learning. I would tell you not to start by learning different stitches instead by learning to make specific projects. Find a project you want to make – would be best to find one that has the written instruction as well as a video. That is how you will get better. Start with EASY projects – scarves and hats. Some projects look difficult but are easy – some look easy but are difficult. Loom for projects that say beginner or easy. Here is a playlist of videos just for beginners – some you might think you don’t need to watch but you should. Hidden teasures in each one .. Click HERE
