Loom Knitting for Beginners – E-Wrap

Loom Knitting for Beginners – E-Wrap

Getting started on the loom? START HERE for your first cast on and stitch technique.

First Loom Stitch: E wrap or Single Stitch

When you first pick up a loom, the instruction book usually teaches you ONE stitch.  It is called the Ewrap or in regular knitting also called the single stitch. These stitches are abbreviated as ew or ss respectively.  The Ewrap makes a stockinette type stitch.  This type usually curls on you. Lets say you make a hat. If you don’t make a brim from the instructions (or pattern) then the end of the hat will curl.  You can solve this by learning new stitches to start a project in and then continue in the ewrap for the remainder.  Many times I will start with a garter stitch as my brim and then ewrap.  BTW a hat is the quickest beginner project.  It works up fast and tells you you’re doing well.  Be sure to pick up a Bulky #5 yarn for your first project or 2 skeins of worsted yarn in a #3 or #4 to use together at the same time.

The ewrap simply wraps the peg in a lower case “e” fashion where it crosses on the inside of the loom.  Check out this beginners tutorial below to see it and hear some tips along the way.  As always..I’m a goof.

(Stay tuned fairly quickly for I will show you both the knit (k) and purl (p) stitches to make the garter stitch pattern.)

Have fun! Be sure to come back and tell me what you’ve made and your progress! Happy Looming!!
