Can I knit narrower than loom length? I've been searching the net for this, but haven't found anything useful. If I have an extra long loom (22 inches), can I still use it to knit a narrow scarf (8 inches or so)? I am an absolute beginner at this and any help will be greatly appreciated.
Yes, you can, and it's often done! I've often seen knitters wrap rubber bands around two parts of their loom to serve as a reminder of which pegs they're using.

Editor's Note: I believe the long loom is a Knifty Knitter.

Does anyone know how to make a scarf with the Knifty Knitter kit? If you do, please leave instructions.

I just finished making a scarf with the Kniffty Knitter, I used the blue one. The instructions I found were at Walmart in a pamphlet put out by the Kniffty Knitter company that cost me .97. You knit around only 12 pegs, turn and come back over the same 12 pegs, basically you go back and forth as if you are making a hat only you are using the same 12 pegs over and over until you get the length you want. When you finish simply single crochet each stitch as you are pulling it off of the peg. I hope this helped. Any questions email me. kathee68 @ hotmail.com (remove spaces) (12/30/2005)
The manufacturer of the Knifty Knitter has a website,www.provocraft.com. They have a project area. Just click on projects and then Knifty Knitter and you will find several projects. You can also download a video of instructions as well that I found very helpful since the diagram of instructions that came with the long loom was confusing. Hope this helps. (12/31/2005)
I used the yellow one. Went around 18 pegs. Nice width. (12/31/2005)

Using one strand of yarn, start by wrapping over to the 12th peg. Turn on the 12th peg and wrap back to the first peg. Continue knitting back and forth until your scarf is the length you would like. Cut 12'' length for fringe. Put 2 pieces of yarn in each stitch along the ends of the scarf. There are 22 fringes so you will need to cut 44 lengths of yarn.

Using 2 strands of the Micro Spun together, wrap the first 2 pegs and skip the next peg, then wrap the next peg.
Continue on around the loom, wrapping every other peg to the last 2 pegs.
Wrap these and knit, using the pegs wrapped and missing the pegs that are in between.
Knit until your scarf is 36" long or the length you would like.
Using the yarn needle, weave the Incredible Ribbon through the bars in the knitting. (This will take some time to do.)
Weave 2 strands in each of the bar rows.
Weave like a basket. Leave about 24" of fringe on each end.
Tie 1 or 2 love-knots in each of the ribbon fringe strings, and you have a fun scarf that will flaunt your creative flair.
