Loom Knit Stitches – Directory of FREE Patterns with Videos

Loom Knit Stitches

Loom Knit Stitches I wanted one page to list all my loom knit stitches. A place that I could update regularly like I do my Video page. Well here it is. You can bookmark it and come back once a month. God willing a new little square with a link to a free stitch pattern with a video tutorial will be added every time you visit,

Feel free to make suggestions and requests. I can’t promise that I will be able to accommodate you right away because sometimes I am following a project calendar or I already have a few post and videos that are done. If you know me, you know that I’m a stitch hog so if you introduce me to a stitch I will get to it at some point that’s for sure.


There is place on the sidebar of the home page that says, ‘Subscribe to Blog via eMail”. Enter your name and email and by the way, NO I DON’T SELL YOUR NAME – You will not be joining any other list all you get is an email when ever I do a new post.

For now let’s go stitch hunting …

My Looms

loom knit stitchesI’m always asked about the looms I use on most of my Loom Knit Stitches video. I have 3 looms that I use almost exclusively for my stitch patterns.

Below I give you links to help you find them on-line with Amazon but check with your local craft store to see if they’re available and if they take competitor coupons and check eBay for some really crazy deals.

Click to Purchase.

1. KB Adjustable Hat Loom ( I use the most )

2. Knifty Knitter set of Looms

3. Darice Loom Set


List of Loom Knit Stitches

Again, the list is in alphabetical order and the word, “The” does not count.  Click the links or the square with the picture of the stitch you want to learn. You have the option of the pattern and video or just the video if one is available.

When a video is available, please watch the video from beginning to end before attempting the pattern, I promise this will make a HUGE difference. You will feel a lot more confident that you are able to tackle the task once you know that it’s doable.

    hi Denise, I have only been looming for a couple of months. A friend wants me to loom a hat for him. I have a 41 peg loom, which measures out to head circumference of 21 inches. He needs a X- extra, large hat that would fit head circumference of 25 inches. He says he do not want to squeeze a hat on his head because the air will get through the holes… I am not sure how to get another 2 inches or so out of my 41 peg loom… do you have any suggestions?


    • Denise Canela December 12, 2016 at 8:54 pm

      Lesa the measurements depend not just on the loom but the design – the yarn and the stitch. Here is an easy one: Click HERE

      • Lesa December 13, 2016 at 5:56 pm

        O.k. Thanks, I will check it out!

  2. Vonny November 30, 2016 at 10:04 am

    Hi Denise

    Do you have a version of the butterfly stitch


    • Denise Canela December 1, 2016 at 10:07 pm

      Hi Vonny – thanks for asking – no – but I am big time going to consider this one – just awesome !

  3. Cruz Flores November 15, 2016 at 5:04 pm

    Hi Denise,
    I just recently started loom knitting and I’m already obsessed! I have made two scarves and two baby hats. I’m currently working on a scarf and I am getting some curling on the edges. Any advice on how to reduce or eliminate this problem? The first scarf was a flat panel and I thought the curling was because of the type of yarn I used. The second one was a tube so I didn’t have that issue. Just so you know I’m working with two strands of yarn. Thank you sooo much for your videos. They are by far the best! I love all the details and repeating of steps. XOXO

  4. Roli Agrahari November 11, 2016 at 4:37 am

    I have just started looming and made my first hat watching your video. turned out very good. Tried to read few other designs online. I was very much intrigued by Sonia Cataquet’s brown shawlette . I searched for the lacy design she has used and found the following much similar pattern. http://www.knitting-and.com/knitting/patterns/lace/vintagefineknittedlace.htm . Although the steps mentioned are for needles , I just wanted to know if it is possible to do the same through round loom. Can you also put up a post about K2TOG, YO , YO twice and other confusing terms used in looming world! Thank you so much.

  5. Jessica November 2, 2016 at 11:02 pm

    Hi Denise!!

    Intermediate loom knitter here… Wondering if you have seen/know of any patterns or stitch guides for a star-stitch on a round loom. I’m adept at it with knitting needles doing a flat panel, but just can’t get it together when it comes to the loom. Am I not going to get small, closely spaced stars or am I just looking in all the wrong places? Any help would be appreciated. ✌

    • Jessica November 2, 2016 at 11:04 pm

      Also… For reference, I’m trying to make it in the round for a beenie. ????

  6. alexandra abraham November 1, 2016 at 8:30 am

    Hi Denise, I left a post on your facebook page for you… I’m in a real quandary… I promised a very good friend of mine that I would try to knit him a ‘Buddha hat’…(I can’t post a picture, just google ‘knitted Buddha hat) but basically, it looks like a popcorn hat, with an extra dome on top and a pair of long flap-ears on either side… I’m having real difficulty understanding a simple popcorn stitch and wonder in fact if it would be the best stitch to use. I’ve come across a raspberry or trinity stitch, but don’t know if that can be adapted to a loom? Couple that with the fact that my friend’s head is B-I-G! (Maximum size loom!) … I definitely need some guidance here! Please help! Thank you so much for any input you can provide…. Kindest regards, Alexandra – avid UK-based fan!

    • Denise Canela November 1, 2016 at 8:55 pm

      Wow – I love it ! Tuteate has a cool technique – I would just suggest 5 repeats instead of three. Try it on a tiny hat first. Your other option could be the Double moss. Let me know how it goes – I might consider a version of this – VERY CUTE !

  7. Rose October 12, 2016 at 9:53 pm

    Hi Denise! I love everyone of your patterns. Thank you so much! Do you have any afghan patterns? Thanks!

    • Denise Canela October 12, 2016 at 10:19 pm

      Thanks for asking Rose – no not yet …

  8. Tina VanVactor October 3, 2016 at 9:37 pm

    Oh, I was commenting on the hat in the top right corner. It looked brimless, with just a clean edge and the body a close snug fit. But now I see its all the same hat lol. Thank you!

  9. Angela Stringfellow September 29, 2016 at 9:04 am

    Hi Denise,
    Thank you for your YouTube videos. It made looming a lot easier for me. I wanted to know if you could show how to loom a fadora hat and different stitches for the fingerless gloves? Also I notice that when you do the other stitches they are flat, could you please show an example of the same stitches like the Celtic knot in a hat or a slipper?

    Thank you, your videos are the best.


    • Denise Canela October 6, 2016 at 12:04 pm

      I Angela – I had never heard of a Fadora hat until your comment – GoodKnitKisses has one very similar but for kids – THIS might help some. As for the diffirent stitches on the gloves – you can substitute any rib stitch for the one in the basic pattern. I will put links below. About the celtic stitch on a hat – there is one on the post.

  10. Tina VanVactor September 27, 2016 at 9:27 pm

    I want to make the colorful hat in the figure 8 video. Not the one with the yellow brim. The one is just the figure 8 stich and looks like it doesn’t have a brim. How do I get started?

    • Denise Canela October 3, 2016 at 8:37 pm

      Hi Tina – that hat in the video does have a brim – Here is the full picture: Click HERE But if you want a brimless one Click HERE

  11. Barbara Barati August 26, 2016 at 10:14 am

    I asked a question through your Contact Us link but haven’t known where to look for the response, so I will ask again. I seem to have a tightness to my loom knitting. My four rows do not make 1″ like you say they should. Mine are much tighter and I need about 7 rows to make it. I have even tried putting the loom on a lap desk in front of me instead of holding the loom itself on my lap. Do you have some tips for how to not have so much tension on the yarn? Thank you.

    • Denise Canela August 26, 2016 at 10:10 pm

      Barb, I use the word approximate a lot in the tension I come up with is different from the readers. Now the fact that it takes you almost twice the amount is really odd. Hard to make any suggestions. Unless I can “see” you knitting I can’t say what you need to change. What version of the knit stitch are you using. The four rows per inch is for the e-Wrap version of the knit stitch on a large gauge loom.

      • Barbara Barati August 27, 2016 at 10:23 am

        I have been using the u-wrap stitch lately. Let me experiment with the e-wrap and measure. I know you recommend making a sample swatch, but I don’t have much patience for doing that and I want to always jump right in. So let me practice a bit of patience and make some samples. I am enjoying learning to loom knit but want to be doing it correctly. My round looms are from Michaels, so that is large gauge, i believe.
        Also, I was glad to see you go on camera yourself, We have been watching your hands but it is nice to see a pretty face to go with those hands. Barb

        • Denise Canela August 28, 2016 at 9:53 pm

          Thank you Barb for all the sweet words – let me know how it goes – I can sooooooo relate to the swatch issue 🙂

  12. Michelle August 6, 2016 at 9:01 pm

    i need to thank you for explaining the stitches in a way i can understand. i have watched hours and hours to figure out how to do the different stitches.i am loving the looms even more now that i know some different stitches that i can make each item i knit to be a fun and different project and as individual as the person i am making them for

    • Denise Canela August 6, 2016 at 9:24 pm

      Thank you for the Thank you Michelle. Very much appreciated !

    • Denise Canela August 3, 2016 at 9:51 pm

      Hi Kathy, I like the adjustable hat loom a lot but if you just started this is NOT the best loom to get. Better to start with a basic 4 piece set. Click HERE

  15. Lynn Smith June 28, 2016 at 10:48 am

    Hello! PLEASE help. I am working on a figure 8 stitch blanket for my grandson on the S loom and I lost my row count. I am making a Paw Patrol blanket with lots of bright colors and I was counting my rows so they would be even rows of color. I have sections of even solid color then smaller mixed color sections between the solid colors. Could somebody Please tell me how many rows of figure 8 are in a inch. I’m measuring about 7 inches in the solid colors and 2 1/2 inches in mixed colors. I think I did 20 rows in the color but not positive and maybe 8 in the mixed but like I said not positive. Thank you so much!!!
    Lynn Smith

    • Denise Canela June 28, 2016 at 11:15 pm

      Lynn – I suggest making a swatch. Its the only way to get an exact count for your loom and yarn. Knit a few rows – measure as you go.

  16. Samantha June 10, 2016 at 10:39 pm

    I just wanted to drop a line and say THANK YOU! I am just starting to loom knit and your “How to loom knit a hat for beginners” was perfect! My 4 year old son picked out a yarn and I made him a hat in no time at all…he LOVES it!! Looking forward to exploring your other instructional videos. Take care and God bless!

    • Denise Canela June 12, 2016 at 2:59 pm

      Thank you Samantha and Welcome to the Family !

  17. Jan March 9, 2016 at 8:48 pm

    Your blog is so wonderful! I am would like to use the double basket stitch with cotton yarn to make a table runner. It appeared to me that the bottom edge will lay flat. Is that correct? Or should I make a bottom edge of garter stitch?

    • Denise Canela April 9, 2016 at 6:27 pm

      Jan, sorry about the delay in responding. I’ve been ill and way behind on comments. Yes this stitch is really good about not curling. It does however have curving edges on the sides because of the ribbing nature of the stitch. You can always try steam blocking in order to better shape the fabric.

  18. Sophie February 26, 2016 at 12:27 pm

    Hi! I’ve been looking at the Bluebell Rib stitch for a while and absolutely love it. I’ve been trying to recreate it on my loom from knitting needle instructions, but I’m not quite getting the results I want. Do you have any tips/tricks/ideas?
    Thank you!

    • Denise Canela March 24, 2016 at 10:41 pm

      Hi Sophie – so sorry for the delay in responding – can you give me a link where I can see this stitch?

  19. Megan February 5, 2016 at 12:29 pm

    Hi Denise,

    First of all, thanks for your great site! I’ve been learning to loom knit from you and loving it! My question is this: I once saw in one of your videos (can’t recall which) that you used a thinner yarn (a 4 I believe) to make a bulky yarn. I have a great 4 yarn that I want to make a hat from but I need a 5. In the video it looked like you were double strand knitting…how??

  20. Amy S January 15, 2016 at 2:01 pm

    Hi! I’m trying to find instructions for an awareness ribbon. I’m making a earwarmer headband and the receiver would like a Breast Cancer Awareness Ribbon either included in the band or applied after its finished. The problem is I cannot find a pattern for it inclouded in the hat/earwarmer/stitch patterns. Also, I haven’t been able to find a separate pattern for a flower loom (or whatever) for a separate ribbon that could be applied to the headband.

    I’m a newbie so I’m not sure how to do it on my own. Is there a way you could help me figure something out that doesn’t include me actually using knitting needles?

    I have four sized even numbered round looms, I have four long looms, and I have a Dritz brand flower loom kit.

    • Denise Canela January 17, 2016 at 11:25 am

      Sorry Amy – I don’t – this is the closest thing to answering your question: Click HERE

    • Michelle C. July 26, 2016 at 11:58 pm

      Hello Amy,
      In my opinion, Denise really is the very best at teaching nicest looking loom knitting. Because of some of her special techniques, I have “messed” around with my looms a little and am coming up with a few ways to incorporate a few little designs into my project. One just happens to be an awareness ribbon much like you are asking for, except that mine is not pink for Breast Cancer awareness. It’s actually a darker blue color for Transverse Myelitis(TM) awareness. I’ve been trying to explain how to do it to a friend, but she suggested I make a video of it. If you email me and let me know how large you would like your ribbon to be I can create written instructions (essentially a pattern) at no cost to you. Otherwise, I guess I’ll have to take my friends advise and create a video. Have a great day.

  21. Karen E. Jones January 11, 2016 at 11:15 am

    Hi Denise,

    Do you have the instructions for: “Venetian Lace” I just saw it on another site, and I think it would be perfect for summer. What do you think?

    • Denise Canela January 12, 2016 at 7:14 am

      I think yes ! Will consider this – also take a look at Renee Von Hay – she has a pattern which includes this stitch.

  22. Karen E. Jones January 11, 2016 at 10:58 am


    I have a problem with my stitching. For some reason, my loops are too tight and I can’t pull them over the page. I wrap the yarn over the peg loosely, I’ve even had to undo several rows to loosen them up. But, then I start again and they are way too tight.. HELP~-~
    BTW Love your videos, so helpful. I just don’t get the whole knitting language:)

    • Denise Canela January 12, 2016 at 8:25 pm

      Karen – its just as important how you place the yarn on the peg as how you pull the loop over the yarn. Not sure if you have watched the video on this post – but just in case – Click HERE

      • Karen E. Jones January 13, 2016 at 9:48 am

        Hi Denise,

        Thank you for the reply. I will watch the video.

  23. Kimberly December 16, 2015 at 4:18 pm

    I tried standard knitting a few years ago and was completely overwhelmed by the complexity of stitches and the terms. I decided to stop because I just couldn’t find anything to really help me get started as a beginner. I recently found out about loom knitting and decided to give it a try. I love it! So much easier than traditional knitting!
    I just wanted to say “Thank You!” for all your great videos. Watching your videos actually make me feel confident when trying new stitches! You have really helped me to love knitting!

    • Denise Canela December 27, 2015 at 11:07 pm

    Hi there. I have just been bitten by Looming, and already a granny, imagine the speed of the hands and brains converting everything. Nevertheless, I have bought EVERYTHING of the Looms, and packs of wool. I also started knitting and crochet (done when child and mommy trying her best to show me how!!!!!!! she must have wanted to scream her head off. LOL Know Loom knitting is the first on the list to be learned.
    The one thing I really would like to mention is the patterns that are only on video or you tube. Firstly my mind won’t take everything in to remember afterwords and secondly as pensioner I cannot use the internet daily and have only a small “Bundle” account. So please everyone out there, if you want to give a freebie on video, please make it available on a PDF file also. Love LOOMAHAT , its special. Regards Joyce

    Hi, thank you so much. I had a back operation in April, so I knew most will be 6 weeks in bed. Just before April I found you on the net, and went to the wool shop and bough the looms and wool. So I had something to do while in bed. It really helped my mind and body to start something new.
    Just one question so far, can the videos be downloaded? If I have some problems in the pattern, I would like to go to the video, but that means going into my internet every time. Any help will be appreciated as I am not clued up with laptop and internet, as I am 62 and a granny. LOL
