Basic Loom Knitted Cloth

This tutorial/pattern requires basic know how on the long loom but if you are a beginner, I’ve included links that were helpful to me of the techniques mentioned below from other knitters on Youtube.

Supplies Needed

  • Knifty Knitter 10” Long Loom which can be found in the Knifty Knitter Long Loom Set though you can also purchase it separately.
  • 3 oz worsted weight cotton yarn, such as Lily’s Sugar and Cream, Peaches & Cream or Lion Brand Cotton, wound into 2 balls.
  • Hook tool
  • Plastic Needle


Using two strands of yarn held together, cast on filling every peg except the two on each edge. (I did an e-wrap cast on).Here’s a video to show you how to cast on like this CLICK HERE.

Knit 20 rows wrapping back and forth across pegs on the top and bottom of the loom to knit a double thickness panel. This method is also known as double knitting on the long looms. (Click here to see how to do Figure Eight Wrap knit on a Loom)

Cast off and weave in tails. (Here’s a helpful video showing how.) One cloth takes me half an hour to an hour to complete without any interruption. The cloth measures at 7×7 completed but since it’s cotton note that it’ll shrink about an inch. 

Enjoy for yourself or gift your cloths to someone you know! These eco friendly wash cloths make great use in the bathroom and the kitchen!
