Loom Knit Cast On Overview with swatches

Loom Knit Cast On

In this article you will find links to videos of Loom Knit Cast on Methods for the knitting loom.  Most are for single knit and some are double.  They are shown on a loom in a flat panel but can be connected to be used IN THE ROUND (or in a circle) for a hat, bag, tub scarf, etc. It doesn’t matter what loom this occurs on,  just make sure you use an appropriate yarn or number of strands for the gauge (spacing from center of peg to center of peg – CTC) of that loom.

(***loom shown in the first set of links is Knitting Board AllnOne loom with 3/8″ small gauge; again your loom could be a large gauge plastic loom and it will work the same.***)

*We will add more Cast On methods as they are filmed and uploaded.  If you would like to contribute writing the directions for these cast on methods please contact us to contribute.  This site is a collective effort for the knotty public to benefit! 🙂  Thanks everyone!
