How to Knit a Flat Panel on a Loom
Loom knitting can be quite some fun. But you know what? It’s not always about circles with these things. You can actually do beautiful flat paneling just like so and you will have perfect edges that are just absolutely gorgeous and people will honestly think that this stuff is hand or store buy instead of handmade by you and it all depends on your level. But you know what? It doesn’t matter with these rings. I just started using these last week and look, my knitting looks absolutely perfect. Look at those lines.
So let’s do something like this. So if you wanted to do scarf this way, it’s so easy. It’s actually very incredible. So you just take your ring and now you are looking for the knot that will be on the top because there’s only one of these all the way around the ring.
First of all, we are going to create a slip knot. So let’s do that. So just wrap it around your finger twice pulling it in your hand right there, pulling the back over the front and grabbing it. The back one now and pushing up with your hands and you have the perfect slip knot just like so.
So what we want to do is we want to look at our ring and you see this particular knob access the actual starting point of any thing and it gives you really good idea where to start. Because I am right handed, I'm going to be working starting point toward the left so I'm going to put on the actual left hand side of that knob. And putting my straggler on the inside of the thing I'm going to pull it nice and snug but not too tight. You can still see that there’s a little bit of gap and it’s pretty lossy goosy.
What I am going to do is I'm going to wrap it around seven post so I'm using, I'm going to hold this out of the way so we are going to go to the very next peg wrapping up okay out of the ring and then back in, going to the next peg wrapping up and coming in. we are going to the next peg wrapping up going in. going to the next one wrapping up coming back down, wrapping up and going back down.
Okay let’s go one more for seven going wrapping up and going down. Seven is just a number I've chosen ladies and gentlemen and it means nothing to me at this point. So I'm just going to use this hand and hold the string and we are going to move these halfway down. You can move them all the way down but its kind point once you do that. You are kind of wasting your own energy if you do.
So now we have to come back going in the opposite direction just like knitting we work back and forth back and forth so we want to come up to the next peg and then out so wrapping it to the next peg coming out that and coming back into the ring.
Okay let’s go to the next one okay coming out and then back in go to the next one out and back in coming out and back in coming out and back in and going right to the very edge one. You are coming out and coming in. so what we want to do now is hold this firm. Okay I can like well that’s just a straggler and what I want to do is just rotate it toward me. I like working with the tip down so I just pulled this but which is the last one up and over the actual peg like so.
So now, when you have done that, you have now just secured that so none of these will actually follow off. And now, what we will do is just work with our needle pulling up towards you over the tip pulling up towards you or the tip and w go all the way along until there is no more to pull over the top and this is not an oversight here. It should not be able to do that one.
There’s a purpose for that so we are going to just use our hands and push bak on both half to the halfway point. now we have already wrap the edge one right in the very beginning so we are going to come back and now we are going toward the left in. so we are going wrap underneath that peg coming back in going to the next one coming back in and w are going to go all the way to the last peg that you can see. And just like before, we are just going to add that very end pull up and over. Okay it’s kind of lossy goosy now but that’s because we are establishing a pattern and so now we just work our way back. So I am just grabbing the bottom lens which is the bottom of the ring like I have always explained it and playing it up over the tip until you can't see it anymore.
And now, what we want to do is just push down and as it gets thicker it just gets easier and these are to push down. So coming back across the other way, so we are just coming up underneath that first one and pull me back into the center and we will do that all the way across again to the very last peg available and then just tick in your needle up and over up and over up and over and I can let that go right because I see that one when I did the first one. Okay up and over, up and over up and over and to go back all the way across again
So, we have already done this one on the edge as you remember so coming up and out and back in up and out and back in up and out and back in all the way to the end. Okay and get to the end up and over up and over up and overt up and over up and over and up and over. And then just fill those people that are having garnered on so up and so under and back in and we work our way all the way across again to the very last peg that you have available and we just put it over the top yet as that simple ladies and gentlemen.
So that’s what you have going on and then the inside of the pattern which is the underside of the ones that are creating that lines up beautiful and even this side of it is actually quite starting as long. And you can see this sinkage factor there for those seven. It comes back down and this so privately general with the bit when it all stretches back to normal when you look or put off your loom.
