Mimirose Scarf

Dominee 1

A stunning and elegant scarf that will have everyone turning around just to look at it again and again. Knit with Circulo Renda Trico yarn this scarf knits up in just a few hours making it the perfect "gift" for the holiday season. Gather up your materials and let's get started.

*A special thank you to model, Dominee Rose.


Knitting Loom: All-n-One Loom, set with the knitting board 1-inch spacer.

Yarn: 1 skein of Circulo Renda Trico Margarida or similar style yarn.

Notions: knitting tool, tapestry needle.

Size: 34 inches x 5 inches

Pattern notes: This yarn is very similar to the ruffle style yarn that we have used previously in many of the scarf projects. This particular yarn looks like lace and it has small orifices that are used to knit. We will place those small holes on the pegs and knit with the "yarn"

We will be using the loom in a special way, set it up as if using it as a knitting board with the 1-inch spacer. We won't be knitting as a knitting board, rather, we will use first the front rail, then we will switch the loops to the back rail and knit there, then we will switch them back to the front rail and knit there. We will repeat this process so that the ruffles go on the front and back of the piece and not just on the front side.

Directions Dominee 2

Step 1: Place a loop on 6 pegs of the front rail of the loom.

Step 2: Place a second row of loops on the pegs.

Step 3: Knit off (Lift the bottom most loop up and off the peg).

Step 4: Move the loops from the front rail to the opposite 6 pegs on the back rail.

Step 5: Place a second row of loops on the pegs.

Step 6: Knit off (Lift the bottom most loop up and off the peg).

Step 7: Move the loops from the back rail to the front rail.

Repeat Steps 2-7 until item reaches desired length.

Bind off with basic bind off method. At the end, thread the end through a large eye needle, pass it through the last stitch that was on the loom. Pull gently on the yarn until all the slack has come through. Tie it securely with two knots.

Weave in the ends as invisibly as you possibly can.

Wash it in Eucalan woolwash to soften up the fabric, I recommend let it soak for about 15-20 minutes, soak it in cold water as warm water can make the color run.

Lily's Pixie Hat

Hello my loomy knitters,


I bring you a new pattern for your AllnOne knitting loom, the whimsical pixie hat! I loved knitting this precious little hat and I was so excited when I finished it to find a little someone to wear it for me so I could take pictures. I looked and looked for about two weeks and I couldn’t find a little girl model, then came to the rescue little Lily, she is precious and so sweet and she has the perfect little face for this little hat. Thank you to the Pace family for letting me model my little hat on their beautiful daughter and to Wendell Pace from for taking the pictures for me. I hope you all enjoy knitting the little pixie hat!

Storybrooke Cloche Pattern

Cloche 005 croppedI have to admit that I am a lover of all accessories, if I have a choice of an item to knit, it will most likely fall in the range of scarves, mitts, hats, socks, or something “chic” to enhace the wardrobe. The Storybrook cloche was inspired by one of my latest show-series obsessions, Once Upon a Time, the actresses are always wearing gorgeous hats! Choose any episode and they have a new hat, I want to have a wardrobe full of hats, one for each day of the year, or at least a full month’s worth! The lace section is only 8 rounds, after that it is just a matter of knitting and purling to the very end! Go ahead, give it a try!

Items needed:

Top Load Washer
Zippered pillow case
1 tsp of Eucalan Wool Wash or baby shampoo
Pair of jeans
2 towels

How to:
Insert felted pieces inside zippered pillow case. Set Washer to: Hot and Small cycle. Place 1 tsp of Eucalan Wool Wash or Baby Shampoo in the wash. Place the pair of jeans in the wash. Place the zippered pillow case in the wash. Allow the wash to start its cycle. Pause the wash before it goes into the Rinse cycle. Take out the zippered pillow case and check the felting process of the slippers. The slippers need to shrink to the desired size. If the slippers are not the desired size, repeat the wash cycle from the start. Make sure to remove the felted fabric before the Spin cycle. Leaving it in the spin cycle will create wrinkles. When item has reached desired size, remove items from the zippered pillow case, place them in between both towels and squeeze out as much water as you can.

To mold the slippers, have the recipient wear them for a few minutes. Once they have the foot shape, allow them to dry completely, away from the sun.

When slippers are completely dry, sew the buttons to both straps, one button on each strap. Sew the strap to the toe area of the slippers.

Puff Paint or glue: place small dots on the bottom of the sole to make the slippers less slippery.
Enjoy :).

Hostess Gift: Washcloth & Towel Set

I have to admit that the only reason this set made it into “real life” was because of the color of the yarn-HOT GREEN, or as I like to call it “Zumba Hawt” It is the color of many of my Zumba clothes…hey I should probably take it as my new towel during class. I saw it at the store and it was an impulse purchase. I had to get the yarn and knit something with it, it didn’t matter what, just something. Then it occurred to me, my bathroom downstairs could use a splash of color and voila the little set was born. I hope you enjoy knitting it and gifting it or keeping it :).

Happy looming!
