Trendy Loom Knit Fall & Winter Ear Warmer Headband

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 48 peg round loom (Purple) You can purchase the Knifty Knitter Purple Adult Hat Loom on Amazon.
  • 1 skein of Hometown USA
  • Hook tool
  • Plastic Needle
  • Optional: Flower loom to make a yarn flower, scraps of fabric, buttons… anything you’d love to use to style it up!

Instructions

Using one strand of yarn, e-wrap cast on.

For the first 9 rows, do a knit 2 and purl 2 pattern for the brim. Row 10-24 knit stitch. Rows 25-31 repeat the knit 2 and purl 2 pattern you began with. Finish with the stretchy bind off in which a video example can be found HERE. You’ll want to wrap your yarn around the loom 4 times and then cut so you’ll have enough yarn to bind off and weave in. Voila! You have a trendy ear warmer headband for the Fall and Winter season.

Loom Knit Bear, Mouse, or Monkey Ear {Tutorial}

This tutorial/pattern requires basic know how of chain casting on, e-wrapping, and the gather bind off. This pattern basically makes a half circle which makes the perfect Bear, Mouse, or Monkey Ear !

Supplies Needed

  • A Knifty Knitter  loom which can be found in the Knifty Knitter Round Loom Set though you can also purchase it separately. I used the red loom for this tutorial.
  • Any yarn works but I used one strand of Charisma Brown and the weight is 5.
    I’ve also done it with 2 strands of thinner yarn.
  • Knifty Knitter Hook tool
  • Crochet Hook
  • Plastic Needle or Metal Needle ( I prefer metal)

Instructions

  1. Chain Cast On 10 pegs. You can use your knifty knitter or crochet hook. I find the crochet hook easier.
  2. E-wrap knit four rows onto the 10 casted pegs.
  3. Gather Bind Off. To do this, you’ll need to bring the first loop over to the second peg and knit over. Continue doing this with the remaining loops…2 over 3, 4 over 5, 6 over 7, 8 over 9, 9 over 10…
  4. Cut working yarn and leave a long enough tail to for sewing and pull that piece through the last remaining loop on the peg. This would be the 10th loop.
  5. Repeat step 1-4 and make another ear and sew the two wrong sides together! Or you can sew it differently together to get a different look.
  6. Repeat  steps 1-5 two make one more ear!
  7. Attach both to any hat you desire!
  8. Take lots of picture of your completed work!
  9. Share this Tutorial with others via Twitter, Facebook, and more!
