Textured Stripes Square on a Loom

This textured stripes square Free Pattern is for an  8×8 inch or 20×20 cm square.  It is perfect for a dishcloth, washcloth, blanket,  lapghan or afghan. Put enough of them together and you can make yourself a very nice bedspread. Below the post is chart to help with sizes and number of squares for your project.  A short video tutorial coming soon will make it even easier to learn.

It is made up of two simple stitches a knit and a purl. Make note of the fact that it is a Rib Stitch pattern and so it has an elastic quality.

Supplies Needed

Textured Stripes Square

Loom: ANY large gauge loom with at least 23-pegs. I used the small pink 26-peg long Knifty Knitter Loom sometimes called a Slim Jim .This is my favorite loom for square. It’s small and narrow so it travels well. Note:  this loom has a gauge that is just a tiny bit smaller than most KK looms .

Yarn: Worsted weight. I used the Red Heart Super Saver. NOTE: If you plan to make a dishcloth or washcloth please remember to use Cotton Yarn.

Hook: Any  loom hook will work well.

Stitch Counter: There are many to choose from. I used my $2 manual hand counter.

Textured Stripes Square PATTERN

.

Pattern Notes: I did slip the stitches on the edges. Some folks do not do this with squares that they intend on sewing together.

Stitches: Knit and Purl.

The pattern could have been easier. but I wanted a more textured look – if you don’t want to complicate things then just do the Knit 2 rows, P 3 rows for 65 rows or until you reach 8 inches.

 

Cast-on: 23 pegs . Wrap every peg – Knit a row using the U-wrap knit stitch

 

Note: Remember to slip stitch edges

Row 1: Knit

Row 2: Knit

Row 3: Purl

Row 4: K1,P1

Row 5: Purl

  • Repeat Rows ( 1 – 5 ) 12 times = 65 Rows in Total

Row 66: Knit

Row 67: e-Wrap Knit all pegs

 

Cast -off : I used the Crochet Cast-off. You can also do a Modified Basic Bind-off

May Sound Crazy but Your Stripes are on the Reverse Side
As much as I tried to get it to work on the front – can’t translate the Flat stitch on the reverse. 

 

The Reason for This FREE Pattern is KAS

The Lakota children and their families living on Pine Ridge Reservation need items like slippers, socks, hats, scarves, mittens, gloves, sweaters, and blankets.

These are things that most of us take for granted but the children need them just to make their daily lives bearable. The children come in all sizes and ages (newborn to high school ages)

Need Squares in 6 inch, 8 inch and 12 inches

    Do you think this square would be good for a blanket?

    • Denise Canela September 9, 2016 at 9:20 pm

      Yes Judy – it should work just fine.

  2. Judy Byers September 6, 2016 at 12:26 pm

    I would like to try your Textured Stripes Square. Can you tell me if you used 2 strands of worsted weight yarn or 1 strand?

    • Denise Canela September 6, 2016 at 10:14 pm

      Yes it is just one strand

  3. Judy Byers August 26, 2016 at 10:48 am

    I was looking at your Double Moss Stitch. Do you think it would work good to make 6 x 6 or 8 x 8 afghan squares in? If so would you slip the end stitches or what way would work best in or to sew them together.

    • Denise Canela August 26, 2016 at 10:12 pm

      Yes Judy you can make a 6×6 or the 8×8 and yes I would slip the edges. Funny that I thought about this exact project.

    Waiting for video.

  5. Michelle Fitchett February 9, 2016 at 12:02 am

    I do not have that loom. I only have the round ones. Did you use 1 or 2 strands of yarn

    • Denise Canela February 9, 2016 at 10:30 pm

      You can use your round loom and yes I only used 1 strand

  6. Michelle January 31, 2016 at 10:41 pm

    Have you made a video for this one? I do better when I see a video

    • Denise Canela February 1, 2016 at 9:44 pm

      I totally understand – the plan is do to it for the summer – I just keep forgetting. Adding it to the calendar. Make sure that you’re on the mailing list.

  7. Michelle January 31, 2016 at 5:36 pm

    What cast on stitch do you do?

    • Denise Canela February 1, 2016 at 9:46 pm

      Hey Michelle – THANK YOU for the pattern. I just update it.

  8. Judy Byers July 6, 2015 at 4:16 pm

    Could you tell me what the guage is of the loom is that is being used for this Textured Square 8′ x 8′. The different brands don’t measure the same so I am not coming out 8″. with the one I have. It would be nice if all patterns on the gauge measurement so we can match out looms.

    • Denise Canela July 6, 2015 at 6:51 pm

      Hi Judy,
      I believe its 5/8

      • Judy July 7, 2015 at 9:54 am

        Thank you so much. Love your website I have learned so much from you. I am new to loom knitting but I am getting better with help from people like you.

        • Denise Canela July 7, 2015 at 7:50 pm

          I’m glad I can help Judy. Big Thanks for the Thank you – I really appreciate it !

    Hi! Is the video out for this project yet?

    • Denise Canela March 11, 2015 at 12:09 am

      Not yet – Sorry

      • Mary March 15, 2015 at 4:57 pm

        Denise, which cast on do you recommend ( I’m making a dishcloth). Thank you!

  11. Angie November 25, 2014 at 1:48 pm

    I have tried many times to make squares, but mine always turn out all different shapes. How do you get yours so lovely? I mean it is a perfect square, what am I not doing?

    Thank you!
    Angie

    • Denise Canela December 4, 2014 at 9:26 pm

      Hi Angie – I believe I answered this for you on Facebook but in-case you’re a different Angie… you would need to pull the loops – start with one end and pull them one at a time until you read the other end- you should end up with a long tail and your work should look smaller.. Hope that makes sense.. A bit hard to explain – hope to do a video soon.

    I am a new knitter on round looms and long looms so I need relatively easier patterns. I saw the two patterns for squares and thought they would be good to practice on. I tried to print them and had no luck. Is there a reason I cannot print them out? Is it copyright infringement? I like the site very much and feel as my skills advance I will take advantage of more patterns and stitches. Thank you for any help you can give me concerning this issue

      Hi Ken,
      I have not put my patterns into PDF format yet – people steal patterns so those of us that design them have to do our best to protect all of our hard work. When someone copies and paste my patterns on their site – Google makes note that they are not the original source .
      For now I can only suggest that you use your left clicker to select what you would like and then paste it on a word document in order to be able to have a print copy.

      I will be making PDF’s available later on next year through an Etsy store, Amazon and eBay – but those will be sold for a small price.

    Is there a way to print the pattern with the picture?

    • Denise Canela November 29, 2014 at 5:00 pm

    Like both of the new stitches. Will be purchasing the book of stitches. That looks like a very helpful book.

  15. Damaris November 23, 2014 at 6:22 am

    Gracias Denise por tan valiosa información. La textura del punto es bellísima y versatil.
    La tabla guía para hacer mantas es genial. Es otra bella opción para cuadritos a donar.
    Otra organización que recibe cuadros tejidos es:
    http://www.facebook.com/lovesquared2
    Hacen mantas para niños sin hogar en USA, y aceptan todos los cuadritos 8×8 tejidos en telar, 2 agujas y crochet.
    Me gustaria saber tu opinión sobre el telar púrpura de Knifty Knitter . Yo lo uso mucho y me encanta. La gran mayoria de los gorros que he donado son en ese tamaño.
    Pero nunca he visto una tabla que lo incluya en su tamaño para la clasificación de small, medium…etc. Porque el verde mide 9″diametro, el purpura 10 1/4 “de diametro y el amarillo 11″diametro. Se que varia el espacio entre las clavijas porque el purpura mide 5/8″y los otros 3/4”. Te hablo sobre esto porque a veces me siento algo confundida en la clasdificación de los tamaños para hacer el donativo con el gorro identificado por tamaño.
    Gracias por toda la gran labor que haces y por compartir tu conocimiento.
    Recibe un gran abrazo de sincero corazón,
    Damaris
