Let’s loom knit a pair of Double Knit Mittens!
It’s February and that means two things: love is in the air and it’s cold outside. The Spruce Berry Mittens pattern from KB Looms will have you falling in love all over again with the Rotating Double Knit Loom. These adorable 3-color, double knit mittens are loom knit in a flat panel and then seamed.
I know mittens have always been a challenge for loom knitters because of the dreaded thumb. The thumb is knit right into the mitten as you and is much easier than you would expect. Seriously, you’re going to love this new technique.
You have been asking for more videos for the Rotating DKL, and KB Looms reached out to me. In addition to providing the pattern they are sponsor this video just for you.
