Knifty Knitter Techniques - Making a Lacy Appearance in Knit

If you are skilled at E-wrapping the knifty knitter loom and knitting off, you can create a bit of a variation to the knit with this technique. (For those that need more information about E-Wrapping the Knifty Knitter loom, visit E-Wrapping a Knifty Knitter.)

1. Ewrap and knit off from the loom. (Lift the bottom loop over the top loop with the Knifty Knitter tool.) Do this 3 times.

2. On the 4th row, do not wrap. Remove the loop from peg 1 and place it on peg 2. This leaves peg 1 open and peg 2 with 2 loops. Continue to do this around the Knifty Knitter loom. When you have made it all the way around the loom. Begin knitting off on the pegs that have loops. When finished every other peg should have one loop as shown in the photo.

3. E-Wrap the Knifty Knitter loom again. Now some pegs have one loop, some pegs have two loops. Knit off the pegs that have 2 loops. When finished, all the pegs will have 1 loop.

4. Keep repeating steps 1 through 4 until the knit reaches the desired length.

This is the hat I created using this "lacy pattern." The full pattern for the hat is (here).
