How do I take off stitches when finished with a scarf on the Knifty Knitter?
By Zeenabeth from Wolcott, NY
There are two ways to do this. The first (and easiest) is to take a length of yarn (as long as your scarf is wide plus 2 or 3 inches) and thread it onto a yarn needle. One should have come with you Knifty Knitter. It will be blue and look like a sewing needle, but plastic. Tie off your thread to your scarf and then stitch through the stitches on your knitter. All you will do is lace through the last stitches. Then carefully remove from your knitter and tie off at the end of your scarf. Don't pull on this yarn because it will gather your stitches (something you may want to do at other times.)
If you are a bit more familiar with other yarn methods you may want to use method number two. In this you will not cut your yarn until you are finished. Start with the last stitch on your loom and do a single crochet stitch picking up the next loom stitch. I like to have at least one stitch between each loom stitch. You can vary this depending on your yarn or the pattern you are knitting. Continue crocheting to the end then remove from the loom. You can also remove this as you go keeping the completed scarf inside the loom as you go. This will look nicer than the 1st method and will not run. Good luck. I love my loom. (03/11/2010)
