    My Latest Creations

    Pretty in Gold Hat (girls)

    My daughter fell in love with this hat and wanted to walk around the house with it on. I used gold yarn on a 41 peg loom. There was no long thought out pattern, I just went off my creative mojo. I wish I had written down my steps, but I’m pretty sure I can duplicate again 😀.

    Baby Booties (My very 1st pair)

    I came across this tutorial and decided to give it a try. I love the pattern, but the yarn was a little difficult to work with. I think I’m going to give it a try once more with a different yarn. The pattern was simply Purl & Wrap/Knit and a 24 peg loom. Maybe I’ll make a matching hat and blanket the next time. 

    On to my next creation,


    Slouchy Beanies

    The slouchy hats pictured above were made on a 41-peg round loom. The black and brown ones are similar in designed using the e-wrap stitch which is really easy and simple. I used two strands of yarn to prevent the hats from being thin and airy. The only variation with the multicolored beanie is the brim, in which I used the seed stitch (Knit 1/Purl 1) without breaking the sequence. 

    Children’s Cowl

    *This was made specifically for my daughter*

    Supplies used: 41 peg loom (or any size loom with at least 22 pegs); bulky yarn of choice; crochet hook & tapestry needle*I used black and cream yarn*

    1. Cast on 22 pegs (wrapping each peg 2x)
    2. Knit & Wrap each peg (rounds) until you reach a length of 50 cm
    3. Place the first set of loops back onto the loom and bring the bottom loop over the top loop for all 22 pegs
    4. Leave a long tail of yarn and bind off.
