Here is a link to a pattern for 44" x 70" afghan. It requires the 28" long loom that has 84 pegs:

I always go to youtube. Mickey is fantastic with loom knitting, on all different looms, he crochets also. Good luck.

I just got a Knifty Knitter round loom set on Saturday, and so far, I've made 2 hats. I'm going to attempt to make a scarf. Is there a way to make an easy afghan with the round loom set? I've been searching all over the internet and I can't find a pattern. I need something simple.

The easiest way is to make a few strips all the same length and sew or crochet them together. If you can make a scarf you can make an afghan. An afghan is just a bunch of scarves (strips) sewn or crocheted together. On a piece of paper I keep a record of how many rows are in a finished strip and how many rows I've worked in the current strip. I have a friend who alternates colors every other row to make counting easier. In that case you don't have to cut the yarn every couple of rows, just carry it up the side of the strip. When you put the strips together, the yarn carried up the side can be hidden in the seam. Have fun making your afghan.

Also check the web site of the manufacturer of your knifty knitter. They may have free patterns.

I have the round knifty knitter and was wondering how I turn to avoid making a complete circle to make a blanket? I don't really understand the instructions and can't find anything online. Anyone have any simple instructions to make a blanket?



Thanks,
Winter from Red Deer, AB

Mine has a switch on the side that moves up and down.Put switch in opposite direction and the machine stops at half way and goes bacwards instead of making a whole turn.This way it knits back and forth instead of a circle.

Hi,

Nothing to it. To make a square or rectangle, just stop one knob short of a complete circle, and then go back the way you came. If you were knitting clockwise, when you get to the 2nd to last knob, you'd just knit your way back counterclockwise. Just be sure to knit twice in your end stitch, of course, to keep the corner square. Great way to use up yarn.

I'm trying to make a panel for a blanket on the orange knifty knitter long loom; one side detaches so I'm just using one side. One side is straight, but the other side edge is what looks to me as shrinking or decreasing. I'm doing the same thing as the other side, at least I think I am. And the first row keeps curling up. I'm using a sort of stretchy yarn. But I want my blanket to look semi decent as it's a Christmas present for my daughter. Thanks.

The curling happens when using a stretchy yarn - when finished you'll just need to 'block' the project (wet and shape. Use rust-proof pins to hold it in shape as it dries, and yes this works with acrylic yarns as well as with wool or other natural fibres).

Looking at the photo you've posted, it looks to me as though you're wrapping tighter where the rows have gone narrow, OR that you're decreasing somehow.

Try unwrapping to the point it's the width you want, and then slowly rewrapping each peg with the same tension as you used previously. And be sure you're not decreasing accidentally at beginning, end, or middle of the row.

Pretty yarn, I hope you'll post a snap of the finished blanket:)

I'd whipstitch, or slipstitch it together.
