Free Loom Patterns

When I bought my first set of Knifty Knitter brand looms, they came with no instructions or patterns. That was years ago. I searched for free patterns online, hoping to find something to make with my new looms. It was unbelievably difficult to find patterns or instructions for these looms.

Years later, here I am designing this page to help others locate Knifty Knitter patterns online. Some of them are mine, I wrote them myself with trial and error, others are from the loom manufacturers website. If you are looking for brand new, just cracked open the box, beginner instructions check here first: Using Knifty Knitter Looms

I think it's also important to note that "Knifty Knitter" is a specific brand of loom distributed by Provo Craft. All the patterns you see here are for those looms. There are other brands of looms, such as Boye and Martha Stewart. Those brands are perfectly fine, but those looms aren't compatible with the patterns below, as they are different sizes. Have fun knitting!

Hat Pattern

for the Yellow Round Loom

Knifty Knitter Hat This is a quick and easy hat pattern that is perfect for the beginner. If you’ve never made a hat on the Knifty Knitter looms, you can still do this in an hour or two. Many people mention that it has holes. Look closely at the picture, it’s supposed to be that way. It has a lacy look, probably best suited for women’s hats.

Scarf Pattern

for the Pink Long Loom

free knifty knitter scarf patternThis is my free scarf pattern for the Knifty Knitter loom. It took me approximately 8 hours to make it. It is tube knitted, by going around the pink long loom in a continuous spiral. Since the pink loom is 10 inches and the knit draws in slightly when removed from the loom, this scarf is about 8 inches wide. Because it’s tube knit, it will not curl at the edges. It’s also double thickness. The no wrap stitch is used and because of that, the knit is quite dense and warm.

Skill Level: Beginner

You will need:
*a crochet hook
*a skein of medium weight yarn
*knifty knitter hook
*pink knifty knitter loom (10 inch loom)

Sachet Pattern

for the Blue Round Loom

Pattern for a Sachet bag made on the knifty knitter round loom This is one of my own patterns. The little sachet was made using the smallest Knifty Knitter round loom. It wash knitted using a cast on drawstring to cinch the bottom closed, then the “no wrap,” stitch is used to knit the sachet. Chain stitch a cord approximately 12 inches long to tie the sachet closed with a bow. This is a simple pattern to get a the beginner started loom knitting. Some basic crochet skills and a crochet hook are needed. I use the sachets in my bathroom. I find that using cotton yarn allows the sachet to breathe and exchange air more freely for freshening the room.

Skill Level: Beginner

You will need:
*Knifty Knitter hook
*Worsted weight yarn
*A crochet hook
*Knifty Knitter blue loom (5 inch round)

Baby Blanket Pattern

for the Red Round Loom

Free Blanket Pattern for the Knifty Knitter Looms This is one of the patterns available for free on the Provo Craft website. It is designed specifically with the Knifty Knitter looms in mind. The patterns says 3-5 hours, but that makes me laugh. There is no way the most experienced loom knitter can finish this in less than several weeks. Be prepared for the blanket to take a while, but It’s worth it because it makes a warm, cozy gift for those new blessings.

Skill Level: Intermediate

You will Need:
*Red Round Loom (Any loom with 32 or more pegs)

Figure 8 Wrap Scarf

Free Pattern for the Knifty Knitter Pink Long Loom

free knifty knitter scarf patternThis is the method for making a scarf described in the free instruction that come with the long looms. It’s referred to as the eight wrap stitch in loom knitting because you wrap back and forth across the loom in a figure 8 pattern. This is a very fast way to knit a scarf and you can be finished in 4-6 hours. Because it is “double panel knit,” or knit across both rakes of the long loom, it will not roll or curl. Double panel knit is always a great way to make blankets, scarves or other warm knit items that you want to have lay flat around the edges. It will not ever roll or curl.

Baby Blanket

Free Knifty Knitter Loom Baby Blanket Pattern

This is my own design. I made this blanket using the fashion stitch. It’s knitted as two long panels that change colors halfway down. After knitting two individual panels on the long blue loom, you sew them together using a hidden seam down the middle of the blanket. Made from baby yarn, it’s a warm and cozy baby or toddler blanket. This pattern would also make a nice throw or lap robe. It measures 3 feet by 3 feet when finished.

Favorite Knifty Knitter Scarf

Honeycomb Stitch for the Pink Long Loom

free knifty knitter scarf patternThis is my favorite free scarf pattern. I love it because I’m partial to the stitch. It features the honeycomb stitch which is beautiful, bulky and quick for knitting. The honeycomb stitch is also a double panel stitch, so the scarf won’t curl at the edges. Yes, that is important! If you’ve ever made a scarf or blanket from flat panel knit that curls, you know it’s an epic fail. This stitch is a bit more complicated than the other stitches and will take a bit of time to understand the wrap used. Once the wrap is mastered, it’s easy peasy! The scarf requires about 8 hours of your time.

Skill Level: Intermediate

You will need:
*knifty knitter hook
*2 skeins of worsted weight yarn
*crochet hook
*knifty knitter loom (9.5 inch long loom)

Many, Many More Knifty Knitter Patterns

Collecting patterns specifically for the Knifty Knitter brand looms has become is a hobby of mine. After collecting many patterns here on this page, I soon realized that there were too many. So, I began making other pages, breaking them down by categories. You'll find collections of patterns by garment (such as socks, or hats), by the type of loom used to make them (blue round, yellow long, etc.), or by holiday (such as Halloween or Christmas). This page serves as the main page that linking to all the patterns I've collected.

Choosing the Right Loom

Are you wondering which loom set to buy? Learn which looms are best suited for blankets, scarves, socks or hats. The truth is that you can make just about any project on any loom. New knitters are often surprised to hear that you can make a blanket on a very small round loom that is only 5 inches in diameter. You can also make hats on the small long loom. Anything is possible with a loom, however, some looms are better suited for specific jobs. Round looms for hats and socks, long looms for scarves and blankets.

Binding Off a Knifty Knitter Pattern

How to Finish a Knifty Knitter Pattern

Trouble Shooting with the Looms

The patterns on this page are for a specific brand of loom. One of the most frequent problems that I see is people thinking they have “Knifty Knitter” looms when they really don’t. This phrase is often used as a generic term for knitting looms and that confuses some people. These patterns work only with the Provo Craft brand and shouldn’t be used for any other brand of loom as the sizes may not be the same.

Another problem that I often see is the looms being wrapped to tightly. Wrapping the yarn to tightly around the pegs will make it very difficult to knit. This can be avoided by making an effort to relax the tension a little as you wrap.

Understanding the patterns is sometimes difficult for new loom knitters. When people begin loom knitting they often don’t understand the patterns. This is because they don’t understand the basic flow of loom knitting. There are 3 general steps: 1. cast on 2. knit 3. cast off. Cast on means to place the first row of yarn on the loom. Cast off means to remove your knit from the loom. I think the easiest way to understand how to knit is simply to watch a few videos. Soon you will realize that all loom knitting projects are knitted in much the same way.

    I want to make my daughter a winter headband to wear instead of a hat. Do you know of a pattern or could I just start out like a hat but bind off with a finished edge & make it as wide as I need?
