knitting loom Loom Knit Wrist Warmers
 
I've been playing around with ideas for loom knit wrist warmers. They have become very popular lately. Here are some instructions for 3 different pattern ideas. All were done on a small gauge sock loom.
Wrist Warmer (A) Golden Sparkles: You will use one color of worsted wt yarn. Cast on and knit 1 row, then begin with a rib stitch (K2, P2 around, ending in P2) for rows 2 thru 10 / Rows 11 thru 20 are a basic single knit (1 over 1 stitch) / On row 21 begin knitting a flat pannel (Do not cross from last peg to first. Instead wrap last peg and reverse direction. Repeat when at first peg to reverse direction again.) Do this for 6 rows. / Row 28 - 33 are knit in the round. Remove warmer from loom with the crochet method (putting 1 chain stitch between each loom stitch)
Wrist Warmer (B) COLTS envy: You will need small amounts of blue (main color) and white (accent color). Cast on and knit one row. Starting with row 2 wrap even # pegs with main color, and odd # pegs with accent color. Repeat for rows 3 thru 15. Snip the accent yarn and continue on with only main color for 6 rows (rows 16 thru 21). Knit a flat piece for 7 rows (rows 22 - 28) (Do not cross from last peg to first. Instead wrap last peg and reverse direction. Repeat when at first peg to reverse direction again.) Rows 29 - 34 go back to knitting in the round. Rows 35 and 36 are knit with accent color. Remove from the loom with the crochet method (putting 1 chain stitch between each loom stitch).
Wrist Warmer (C) COLTS envy 2: You will need blue (main color) and white (accent color). Cast on and knit 10 rows with main color. Then bring up for a cuff (as you do with hats). Rows 6 thru 16 single knit (1 over 1). Rows 17 and 18 are knit in accent color. Rows 19 and 20 are knit in main color. Rows 21 thru 27 are knit in flat panel (main color)(Do not cross from last peg to first. Instead wrap last peg and reverse direction. Repeat when at first peg to reverse direction again.) Rows 28 thru 33 are single knit in the round again. Remove with the crochet method (putting 1 chain stitch between each loom stitch).
