Knifty Knitter Spool Loom Projects

Free Patterns and Projects for the Knifty Knitter Spool Loom

Knifty Knitter Spool Loom
The first thing you should know about a spool loom is that it has 2 ends and both may be used for knitting. There is a wide end and a narrow end. Spool looms are generally used for knitting long ropes or cables. For example, the strap of a loom knitted purse is often made with the spool loom. Here are a few patterns to get you started using your Knifty Knitter spool loom, including some ideas you wouldn't expect, such as a Valentine's Day card and a scarf! 

Braided Tube Scarf Pattern

for the Knifty Knitter Spool Loom

Knifty Knitter Spool Loom ScarfThis scarf is made by knitting 5 long tubes on the spool loom and braiding them together along with some fun fur. It adds depth and dimension to the finished scarf. You can experiment by mixing and matching the knitted tubes in different colors. I've seen one done in the primary blue and yellow. It was adorable. This can be a very long project for a beginner, because it takes a while to make all the tubes.

Skill Level: Beginner

You will need:

* Knifty Knitter Pom Pom and Tassel Maker
* Knifty Knitter Spool Loom

Braided Tube Scarf for the Spool Loom
 This is the Knifty Knitter spool loom by Provo Craft. If you haven't seen one, you may not realize that they have 2 sides with pegs. One end is slight smaller than the other, so you can make 2 different widths of knit on the same loom. The smaller side can also be used to make the thumb of a mitten or glove.
