Martha Stewart Crafts Lion Brand® Yarn Alpaca Blend Loom-Knit Diagonal Lace Scarf

Introduction

INTERMEDIATE

SIZE
About 6 1/2 by 72 inches (16.5 by 183 cm)

MATERIALS

  • MARTHA STEWART CRAFTSTM/MC LION BRAND® YARN ALPACA BLEND (Art. #5500) #599 Buttermilk 2 balls, or color of your choice
  • MARTHA STEWART CRAFTSTM/MC LION BRAND® YARN Knit & Weave Loom Kit

GAUGE
Exact gauge is not essential to this project.

Loom Configuration
Use the following pieces:
(2) 36-hole pieces
(2) U-shaped pieces

Connect pieces to form a rectangle as follows:
36-hole piece > U-shaped piece > 36-hole piece > U-shaped piece.

Insert 16 large pegs into every other hole along one 36-hole piece (16 working pegs placed). Insert a contrast color peg into each connecting hole to hold loom together.

STITCH EXPLANATIONS
Knit 2 stitches together: Skip next working peg, move yarn loop from the following peg to the skipped peg above existing loop (2 loops on peg). Knit both loops together to knit 2 stitches together.
Yarn over: Wrap yarn once around empty peg to inside of loom, then back to outside of loom to work next peg.

Notes

  1. The instructions provided in the loom manual for casting on are the same for both flat knitting and knitting in the round (when you make a tube). These instructions are listed under the heading of SINGLE KNITTING.
  2. Once you’ve cast on for the Scarf, begin working back and forth for single knitting.
  3. Loom is configured into a rectangle to make the loom easier to hold. The Scarf is knit flat on only one side of the loom.
  4. Scarf is designed with a Garter stitch (knit one row, purl one row) border on each of the sides. The first and last 2 rows of the Scarf are worked in Garter stitch and the first and last 2 stitches of each row are worked in Garter stitch.
  5. The lacy pattern in this Scarf is created by knitting 2 stitches together, followed by a yarn over. The yarn over will create a decorative eyelet in your knitting.
