    When looming the Chinese Wave, do you cast on first? How many rows do you cast on with? If you cast on rows one and two (left then right), those do not count towards the Chinese pattern do they? The cast on is separate right???

      Hi Valerie, Here is a post and video that might help some Click HERE – But I would suggest first practicing with some simple patterns that have complete projects instead of stitch patterns.

        What do you mean 3 stitches +1?

        • Denise Canela December 9, 2017 at 2:14 pm Reply

          Hi Valerie – the plus 1 is an extra stitch used to balance the pattern. Here is a post and video for more details: Click HERE

    After watching your video on how to make baby booties, I quickly learned how to make them and I now want to learn how to make child and adult socks. I recently bought a Boye sock loom and I would like to know if it’s the same concept.

    • Denise Canela December 2, 2017 at 10:51 pm Reply

      Yes – but I would suggest a search on YouTube

    Is there a pattern for a beanie scarf/cowl combined as one?

    Do you have an easy pattern for a shawl? I am a beginner and have round , rectangle, and the super afghan loom.

    • Denise Canela July 9, 2017 at 10:21 pm Reply

      Hi Cathy – I think this the triangle shawl is easy – maybe just use different fridges: Click HERE

    Just purchase the pattern for the Coco Doll from Etsy. The written pattern rows and the video does not match. So Ignore the video on the rows and follow the written?

    Love the patterns

      Hi Mary, at the beginning of the pattern it does say that the video is only to be used as a reference but to make Coco – you follow the written pattern.

    Hi Denise,
    Thank you for all the wonderful loom-knitting videos. I have a question. I have decided to loom knit scarves for “Operation Gratitude”. They pack boxes full of goodies for our Soldiers deployed. They ask for scarves measuring 4inches wide x 36 inches long. I’ve loom knitted 2 scarves over 36″ inches. How do I calculate how many rows for 36″ inches long? Is there a math formula? I was thinking of using a 36″ long string tied to the loom. I loom knitted the two scarves using your no curl garter stitch/video. I’m using two balls of yarn, #4 worsted weight yarn. Any suggestions will be helpful. Thank You,

    • Denise Canela April 21, 2017 at 7:46 pm Reply

      Hi Irene – depending on your stitch, you yarn, your loom and your particular style of knitting – it should be approximately 5 rows per inch for the garter stitch scarf. I would suggest making a swatch.

    Hi Denise! Thank you for making so many videos! I started loom knitting about 2 weeks ago and have become addicted. Your videos are so helpful and clear. I absolutely love this bamboo stitch hat. I’d like to make this hat in white for my nephew for his christening. He is 4 months old. Can you suggest which size loom I should use and how I can adjust the pattern for a baby? I appreciate any help you can offer! Thank you!

    I have tried to do a brim. Once I try knit over it is really hard. Any suggestions.

    • Denise Canela February 11, 2017 at 12:33 pm Reply

      Phyllis – the first row may be a bit difficult but you should be fine after that.

    Hi Denise. I love your videos and website! I inherited a wooden circular loom 40 years ago from my grandmother. My sweetheart bought me a set of looms last year. I had no idea there was more than one stitch all these years! I found you first on YouTube, when looking for directions. So far, my favorite hat is the scarf ear warmer. So fun to make. But finding your videos of other stitches!!! I can’t wait to start a new project. Thanks for your easy to follow directions. I will be a faithful follower!

    I could be missing it but do you have an infinity loom blanket tutorials? I want to ask you first before I go hunting for someone else. I like your tutorials the best.

    • Denise Canela January 11, 2017 at 10:33 pm Reply

      Hi Barrie – THANK YOU for being sooooooo super sweet. I do have a blanket scheduled for next month – but not on an infinity loom. I try to stay with the same 4 loom size and just switch brands every now and then. Well, as much as possible so that my followers don’t need a lot of different looms.

    Hi Denise,
    First of all thanks for your helpful videos.
    Just wondering whats the stitch above your knotted fringe called and do you have a video on it?

    • Denise Canela September 22, 2016 at 9:58 pm Reply

      Hi Neeta, not sure if you got this answer before – I believe I left it on Facebook or Youtube – but it just a few rows of knit and the mock crochet – I don’t have a video of the stitch in particular but you can see it on this hat video. I actually couldn’t remember for a bit what I had done – you know – it’s that ADD 🙂 – Any for the post and video Click HERE

    I have been making Izzy (aka Comfort) Dolls on a 12 peg flower loom. They are shipped away to go to refugee children.

    Here’s my process:
    Working around, one peg at a time, I wrap the yarn around each peg, move to the next, etc. I repeat the process 9 times, then cast over the first 8 rows. If using two strands of yarn, I wrap 5 times, and cast the first 4 (which would still be 8 strands) over.

    I have watched several videos, and it seems that the casting over is done after each strand. If I do that the weaving is away too loose and there are holes in the product.

    To make a complete doll, here’s the process:
    Shoes: 3 rows of 8 strands per row
    Pants: 6 rows of 8 strands her row
    Shirt: 5 rows of 8 strands per row
    Face: 6 rows of 8 strands per row
    Hat: 3 rows of 8 strands per row

    All told, it takes about 3 hours to loom a doll.

    Can anyone suggest a different way of going about this?

      I have NO idea what videos you have been watching. The pattern and techniques sound all wrong. Are you loom knitting your dolls?

      I don’t know of anyone other then me doing the comfort doll on a loom video: Click HERE
      I don’t use a 12 peg loom – I use the 24-peg loom
      I don’t use the e-wrap stitch – I use the u-Wrap.
      I don’t use 8 strands – I only use 1

      The reason you have holes is because you “Wrap” the peg. I’m using a U-Wrap – and 3 hours is just about right – the more proficient you become the easier.

      Take a look a the video completely before you start the project:

    Thanks for So Much Good Video – I am enjoying loom knitting so much thanks to you! Have been searching for a video of a baby hat with pom poms on ends, kind of like Mickey but simpler and easier and maybe it is a little boxy and flat?Have seen pics of them, but do you have a video by chance? You have spoiled me and you are the Best Teacher! Thank you!!!

    Does anyone have any ideas for making Barbie doll dresses on the knitting looms? I used to crochet them but can’t anymore.

    I make loomed hats for our humanitarian group, but I’d like to add a matching or complimenting little blanket buddy or comfort blanket (they’re called many things…security blankies, etc. ) but they are the little mini blankets that have little dolls or animal heads, etc. attached. I’d love to know how to attach your comfort dolls to a small loomed or crocheted blanket. I’d welcome any suggestions you have about how to secure the dolls to the blankets in a tight, yet attractive manner. I love your site and youtube videos…they were my first intro. to looming and they continue to be my favorite…and I’ve referred several friends to both as well as your FB page. Also, do you have any plans to do any patterns/videos using Tunisian crochet? Just been introduced to that, too! Thanks so much,

    • Denise Canela April 22, 2015 at 6:57 am Reply

      Hi Peg,

      Thanks for this info, I’ve been wanting to know the name of this project. I’ve seen them before but they were always labeled as just blankets. This is why I LOVE questions – they help everybody. 🙂

      From my research the little heads are not attached they are part of the blanket. Once you finished the blanket you fold it and stuff (with cotton or poly-fil) and sew the middle forming the little head. This is the simplest way of making them. to attach a bulky item to the blanket after its made is a pain because it’s never really well secured enough for a baby or small child. I am considering this for a later time – just not sure when.

      About the Tunisian crochet.. I never say never so I’ll say that I probably won’t be crocheting in the near future. Knitting with a loom is just easier for me – for now.

    Hello: Just wanted to thank you for your time and expertise you give us loom knitters that need tips and information from pros like yourself. Have you considered doing a video for Mary Jane adult slippers made on a loom? I have seen lots of videos for babies but not adults. I have seen a couple of written patterns for these slippers, but the instructions are lacking. Would love to see a video for making a nice pair of Mary Jane’s. Thanks again for all that you do.

    About a week and a half ago I had a package shipped to you containing approximately 30 caps/hats of various sizes. I am confined to a wheelchair, so I had someone else mailed the package and am unsure of what day it was sent. I would like to know if you received the package and, if so, are my items the correct size? I would like to make more hats and caps, but I need to know if I need to adjust the number of rows on any of the hats or caps. Thank you.
