How to Knit a Scarf on the Knifty Knitter Round Loom

I get a lot of questions as to whether it is possible to knit a scarf on a round loom. It is indeed possible. What you will end up with is a tube of knit that lays flat into two layers. You sew the ends together with a whip stitch. Long looms lend themselves to knitting scarves because there are more stitches you can do on them, however, it is possible to knit a scarf on a round loom too. It can be done with the e-wrap stitch or the no wrap stitch.

Another option is to knit the scarf around the loom using 12 pegs and then stopping and reversing direction, knitting back and forth on the loom rather than all the way around it. This will create a flat, single layer scarf. Doing it this way, the knit will be prone to rolling at the sides and you will have to block it.
