I love small projects, they give me a sense of satisfaction in the midst of an ever moving world. Create hundres of this to decorate around this holiday season, or simply to use them as small companions to holiday presents.
Loom: Loom with 12 pegs in large gauge. Sample was knit with Flower Loom (orange loom) by ProvoCraft. Pattern can be created on another loom with a different gauge but size will vary according the gauge of the knitting loom.
Yarn: Aprox., 30 yards of bulky weight wool. Sample was knit with Lion Brand Thick & Quick
Notions: Knitting tool, tapestry/yarn needle, size G crochet hook
Gauge: 12sts x 16 rows=4 inches
Size: 4 inches x 2 inches
Entire pattern is worked in stockinette stitch (knit every row).
Worked clockwise around the loom (from right to left).
Yarn should be by first peg (on the right side).
Wrap: lift the loop that is currently on the peg, take working yarn to the inside of the loom, wrap the peg in counterclockwise direction if peg is on the left side, wrap the peg in a clockwise direction if peg is on the right side. Place the loop back on the peg. Leave the peg with both loops on it and continue as pattern directs.
