How to Knit a Wine Bottle Corset Cover with a Loom Part 2/11
The first thing that we need to do for the bottle corset is that we need to create a flat panel using the round loom and these looms are provided by Wal-Mart, and they are the actual smallest ones available and they used to come in a four pack just so that you’re aware.
Now, when it comes to looking at this bottle or corset holder, we can see that we got the three separate strings going on at one time and when this happens, it doesn’t allow flexibility, and that’s exactly what we’re looking for in this section but not down here. We need this area down here to be stretchy in order to make it possible because we need to create this being flat and if you noticed that on round looms is that you can never have a flat panel if you come around the edges here. You’ll have to tie it all shot and then you’ll get a point, very much like a hat.
So, we need to create this flat paneling and that’s actually pretty simple. So, let’s go into it and so because it doesn’t stretch as much with using three materials, I would suggest whatever color that you’re going to do with, I recommend doing two at one time anyway, but pick a color that you like and we’ll go from there. So we need to create the actual flat paneling of a loom. So you’re going to look at your actual loom here and you could see that there’s cheats and there’s a knob and use that knob as like a center piece for you.
And what you need to do is you need to count backwards. So, let me get our slip-stitch started. So round your finger twice, then back over the forward. Then back again, and push up and there is your first slip-stitch there, slip-knot.
So now, what we need to do is that we need to create the flat panel. So we’re only going to work with just a section of this actual ring. We’re not going to do all of it at this time. So, what we need to do? Look for the knob, and if you’re a left-handed, then you might start the other way. If you’re right-handed, you’re going to go on my way.
So, let’s count over four. One, two, three, and four, and put that on. So now we want to begin to cast on. So the cast on – what we’re going to do is just wrap it pulling toward the center of the ring, pull to the next one up and over, and then back into the center. See that? So, up and over, back to the center.
So now we’re back. So you got there four that you did. So, let’s count our four this side. So, let’s count as we’re casting on. So, one, two, three and four and now you have the four on each side of this knob. So, let’s just push this down on both halfway. You don’t push them all the way down if you want to but halfway is sufficient because you’re going to have to pick it up and go over.
And now, this is not casted on completely yet. This is just the first stage. So now what we need to do is watch for it carefully. We’re going to come underneath the one that is pulling back towards you, and over, and then back down. You see that? So, that’s to the next one and we’re going to do all of it the same way until you get to the starting point which is your one left right there.
So now, let’s begin the cast on. So grabbing your hook, you’re going to start where this each stitch or slip-knot. And you’re going to pull it up, and I will equip my rings upside down. You’ve seen many tutorials where everybody’s the other way. I think it’s just easier to pull towards you and push down and then using your needle, you can just push up like so.
So now that you’ve done that, you can let this go because you have sealed it off so that you will follow up. So let’s continue to go. So just pull up and over. So now, what we can just do is just use your fingers, and push both halfway down. So, let’s go again. So that was actually your official round number one. I don’t have a row count for you because you don’t need one because what you need to do is grow the material from the center up here to the center of the bottom. And by growing it, you’re just going to keep working your way and tilt this piece of material, and then you can actually reach over.
So, let’s go to your next one here. So wrap just like you did before. This is called the Twisted Stitch, just so that you are aware – and this is also called E-wrapping because you’re making an E-shape as if you are waiting.
So when you get back to the other side, obviously just pull the bottom one, push over, and then you can let this go because you’ve just trapped it from actually coming off. So, let’s work our way back over.
So, let’s use our fingers and push down. So as so you can see that it’s starting to grow, and that’s exactly what we’re looking for. So, let’s continue along, and what I’m going to do is that if for the people that don’t want to continue to watch, this is about maybe a 10-minute thing to actually get the material to grow. So we’re just going to keep going and I’m going to meet you back. I’m going to stop this video, and I’m going to allow my material to grow. So, I’ll just keep going back and forth, back and forth like you see until the material reaches the bottom of the ring. And if you’re not sure what I mean, just go to my next video and you’ll see. So, keep going and I’ll see you back when this reaches up.
