Round Loom: 100 Projects with Free Patterns by 2014
100 Round Loom Projects with Free Patterns by 2014 is certainly a labor of love. Because I know I can’t do it alone I am asking for help from other Loomers . This will allow me to give you folks cool easy projects and introduce or reintroduce you to great sites and awesome loom knitters.
Here is the story behind the challenge. I was teaching a beginners Round Loom knitting class during a warm South Florida weekend. One of the ladies asked me if she should spend her money buying more round looms. What kind of stuff could she make. I thought about all the things can be made on a round loom. A simple knit hat, scarves, bracelets, umbrella holders, ties and belts can be made using circular looms. She was shocked to discover that not all the finished work had to be round. You can get a square from a circle. I think a kinder-gardener would freak-out if you told them. A square peg in the round hole. Well let’s not get distracted with that subject..
I told her there was an endless list of projects that could be made when you consider all the sizes and brands of looms available. All the different textures of yarn. My head went to spinning. Picture The Exorcist, no better yet don’t. I want you thinking pretty thoughts here.
Continuing with the story, my thoughts and ideas about patterns for circular loom knitting were running at a 100 miles an hour. I have mild ADD so for a few minutes I even forgot that she was standing right in front of me. I figured I should be able (along with a few friends), to come up with at least 100 circular loom knit projects with free patterns.
Some of the projects and/or patterns are mine, others I hope will be offered. A few will be included because I asked another Loomer for permission to share and he or she agreed. Several are included just because I REALLY liked them. If your work is here and you want it removed just email me email@example.com and I will take care of it immediately.

I hope you find something to take with you from this page and please leave the knitter that was nice enough to give their talents for FREE a nice Thank you comment on their website comment section and if you’d like you can come back and leave feedback about your experience here.

Note: If you are new to loom knitting, got inspired and want to try making some of the projects on a round loom then go Buy One ! There are several brands to consider. I use the Knifty Knitter brand. There is the Boye brand and the Darice. I find that there is little difference between them. Unless you’re going to use a high-end, hand-made loom, you won’t be able to tell the difference between most of the mayor brands. Just get one that fits your budget and don’t worry too much about the rest.
I have put some hat patterns in this list, but just a few. You will find alot more on a chart of free hat patterns I created. I will update this list every time I find a new hat on the internet that includes a free pattern and will try to work on a hat pattern of my own at least once a month.
