Loom Knit Baby Monster Pants

Designed by: Jeanne Knuth

After seeing Monster Pants on the Baby Gaga Facebook page; my niece asked me to make loom knit baby Monster Pants for her almost 10 month old daughter on the loom.

My inspiration came from The Wandering Lady‘s needle knit Grumpybum Monster Longies.    This pattern is uniquely designed for the loom and I hope you enjoy it.

 

Materials:

Knitting loom:

31 peg round loom was used in the sample. (a Knifty Knitter type or use a small long loom with clips)

The Ultimate Oval Loom 3

 

Yarn:

Worsted weight yarn (#4):   Red Heart::  purple, turquoise, red and hot pink

Caron Simply Soft Party: Royal Blue Sparkle & White Sparkle

 

 Notions:

Yarn, needle, knitting tool, scissors, crochet hook H, stitch markers or extra yarn to mark pegs

 

 Gauge:

10 stitches across & 13 rows = 4″ x 4”

 

Abbreviations:

“ = inches

EW = e-wrap knit

P = purl

 

Pattern notes:

Pattern is made to fit a 9 month old baby with specified loom. Use larger loom with more pegs for larger size.  Make a swatch and check gauge for changing size or loom gauge.

All stitches are e-wrap knit with 2 strands of yarn.  The inseam of the pants is joined using single crochet.

For all color changes: Add new color yarn with a secure knot, e-wrap the new color twice around the loom; yarn over the previous color then yarn over the next color

 

Instructions:

 

Belt in the pants (make first):

Make an i-cord in hot pink, done with 2 pegs, 35” long.

 

Pants:

Cast On: e-wrap cast on 31 pegs in the round.

Rows 1 – 14: EW; with purple yarn

Next place the i-cord around the inner circle (behind the pegs and just under the bottom of the loom) and bring it through the knitted stitches on opposite end of anchor peg, in the middle, 1.25” apart.

Place stitches from row 1 back on loom like you would a hat brim & knit over. (Making sure to trap the i-cord inside the hem/brim as you go). (figure 1)
