Loom Knit Simple Slouchy and Cowl Pattern

Simple Slouchy and Cowl

I wanted to design a Very Simple Slouchy and Cowl pattern specifically for the true beginner. This project turned out even nicer then I had expected. Not just cozy and warm but with a splash of cool elegance which makes it great for anyone.

Best Part of All: I used 1 loom, 1 skein of yarn, knit with 1 strand of yarn and finished the set in just 1 day.

Skill Level: Beginner Easy

Stitches:  Knit (e-Wrap)

Loom:  Extra Large Loom – 11 inch or Larger. Yellow 41-pegs Knifty Knitter used with sample.

Yarn:  Approximate 165 Yards of Worsted weight. Lion Brand Wool-ease in Cranberry used for sample

Notions: Any Loom Hook and a Yarn Needle. Used the Knifty Knitter with a Grip

Patterns:

Slouchy and Cowl

 

Slouchy Hat  

 

Start / Cast On:

Wrap all the pegs twice

Knit-off (Take bottom loop over the top)

This makes First 1

 

Knit:

To knit additional rows – wrap every peg once, knit off.

Knit 50 Rows

 

End / Cast-off

Wrap the working yarn around the loom 1 ½ times. Cut the yarn.

Thread a needle with the yarn. Feed the needle through the first peg from the bottom up. Repeat until you’ve reach the last peg. Then feed the first peg again.  Remove all the loops from the pegs.

 

Pull the working yarn until the whole closes. Sew around the opening. Then tightly pull on the working yarn again. Make a knot.

Weave in the sends.

Stretch your stitches.

Note: Before wearing the hat spray it lightly with some water. Place it on top of a towel. Let it dry overnight.

 

Cowl

 

Cowl is made EXACTLY like the Slouchy – but your cast-off is a little bit different.  Read the instructions below.

 

Cast Off:

 

Wrap the working yarn around the loom 1 ½ times. Cut the yarn.

Thread a needle with the yarn. Feed the needle through the first peg from the bottom up. Then for the next peg feed the needle from the top down. Repeat until you’ve reach the last peg. Then feed the first peg again.  Remove all the loops from the pegs.

 

Pull the working yarn – but only a bit. Do NOT close it.

Weave in the sends.

Stretch your stitches.

Note: Before wearing the cowl spray it lightly with some water. Place it on top of a towel. Let it dry overnight.

    Denise do you have a video on the pony tail hats, or if not maybe some one you does if so can you send me the link, thank you again.

      Hi Judy thanks for asking but I don’t – you can do a google search for a loom knit pony tail hat. I believe Isela Phelps has one and Tuteate

    I’m using a 42 peg loom and the yarn I have says Medium 4. Will the “holes” on the cowl and hat be too big or should I use two strands? I want to make these for my SILs for Christmas. Thanks can’t wait to start it

    • Denise Canela December 7, 2016 at 7:22 pm

      This sample was made with Medium 4 – I didn’t have a problem with holes. You can if you want to “make sure” only because your tension may not be exactly like mine.

      • Dawn December 7, 2016 at 8:22 pm

        Thanks I’ll keep at it and see how it looks.

    Just wanted to let you know that I am 54 years old and have never been successful with knitting or crocheting until I bought a round loom set and watched a you tube video that you put together for beginners. Now my entire family has knitted hats and all of them were very excited to have a hand made gift by me. Yours was the first video I watched and now I exclusively learn from your videos. Thank you!!! I have a new hobby and cherish making gifts in the evenings after work instead of staring at a TV. I appreciate the detailed information and dedication you give to your work. I’m sure you have helped thousands learn to loom knit. Again, thank you and keep up the fantastic work!

      Pinky THANK YOU Thank you Thank you – from the very bottom of my heart. I can always use a little positive feedback. It nourishes the soul and fuels creativity. Some days I’m just totally maxed out (today and it’s just 8 am) and a verbal hug goes a long way.

      Big Hugs Friend !

    This is wonderful sounds like it’s what I’ve been looking for. Just started loom knitting due to arthritis in fingers & inability to crochet after surgery to lt thumb. Other patterns without rows listed harder to make. THANKS so very much.

    • Denise Canela December 1, 2016 at 10:18 pm

      Thanks for the Thanks Beverly – I really appreciate it !

    I signed up as a Patreon when it first came out. I cannot cut and paste any of the directions.

    • Denise Canela December 1, 2016 at 10:25 pm

      Hi Maria, thanks for being a patron. But yeah, this website is content protected – nothing can be cut or pasted here. This pattern and the yarn holder are currently live and available on Patreon until January and the Staggered eyelet stitch and the ladies slippers until the end of this month.

    Can I use this pattern for a infinity scarf? Or do you have a pattern I use round knitting looms. I’m just looking for a simple pattern for a infinity scarf. Thanks

    • Denise Canela December 1, 2016 at 10:26 pm

      Hi Cindi – None yet but I have one planned for this month

  7. Annette November 26, 2016 at 9:37 pm

    Quick question 50 rows is about how many inches? I usually lose track of counting rows. Thank you.

    • Denise Canela November 26, 2016 at 10:56 pm

      Depending on how you knit and your yarn – it’s about 4.5 rows per inch

  8. Angee November 26, 2016 at 12:28 pm

    I can’t wait to do this project. I was wondering if the person is a full figure person, should I use the scarf rectangle loom instead of the round?

    • Denise Canela November 26, 2016 at 2:06 pm

      Hi Angee – this stitch has a lot of stretch – may work fine
