Loom Knit Granny Round Pattern

Loom Knit Granny Round Pattern

Designed by: Kristen at GoodKnit Kisses

Hello friends! Are you ready to make my Loom Knit Granny Round Pattern?!
This Loom Knit Granny Round Pattern makes a great community project for making rounds and coming together to connect them for giveaway blankets to homeless, cancer patients & survivors, nursing homes, grieving widows and family.



Green Round loom or Knifty Knitter 36 peg was used in the sample


 loom knitting hook
crochet hook (J or K)


3 balls of color (any) med worsted weight if using for potholder use cotton (great for scrap yarn!)

3 strands of yarn was used in the sample

OR 1 strand of Super Bulky #6 yarn.


KO = Knit off EW = E-wrap P = Purl


E-wrap or Twisted Knit Stitch (also called TBL through the back loop) for all stitches

Purl Stitch for one row

Feel free to change the stitches and make it your own. I’m keeping it basic but adding the banding for fun and non-curl.


Skill Level: Beginner, level up

Uses: Stitch circles together for a funky blanket, use as a base to a cylinder bag, large coaster for large mugs or small plant or a potholder. Many uses!

MAKES 1 Solid Circle 6 ½” wide in 3 strands #4 Medium Worsted

SPECIAL NOTE: Keep your stitches loose only row before moving stitches.  Snug or tighten up after moving to remove extra yarn.  When wrapping before decrease be loose with your stitches especially if using more than one strand, as it can become to tight to pick off the peg and move.

Cast on to KK with all 3 strands in the E-wrap method or crochet cast on. Place your slipknot on peg 1 and let the tail fall inside the loom. (Weave this in last to edge of circle. Cast on wraps all pegs one time all the way around the loom and then wrap around again. Knit off (KO) which is lifting the bottom 3 loops over the top 3 loops (the 3 strands together at one time over the newly wrapped 3 together or 1 over 1 if using the super bulky yarn).

Your cast on row is round 1 or row 1.

Row 2: P
Rows 3-5: EW

We are going to divide our loom visually into 6 sections (6 pegs in each section for a 36 peg loom). In round 1 of this section we will move the 2nd peg loop over to the 1st peg. Do not KO at this time. Move to the next section and do this again. Repeat 5 more times. Now KO. Wrap all remaining pegs again & KO. This completes hat Row 6. (You should have 30 pegs remaining).
Now take peg 4 over to peg 3 and wait to KO. Repeat for all sections. KO all 6 pegs. Wrap all remaining pegs & KO. This complete Row 7. (You should have 24 pegs remaining).
Now take peg 6 over to peg 5 and wait to KO. Repeat for all sections. KO all 6 pegs. Wrap all remaining pegs & KO. This complete Row 8. (You should have 18 pegs remaining).

Using the draw string method(**Gathered bind-off). I don’t use a tapestry needle here but you can. Leave the balls of yarn attached & wrap the loom 2 times all the way around. Cut off the strands from the balls of yarn.
Start to the left of the peg where the working yarn is coming out of; Leaving the yarn attached take your working yarn under the loop on the peg & with your loom tool reach under the loop & scoop out the working yarns (like a purl) continue pulling all the extra yarn through the loop. LEAVE the loop on the peg. WEAVING IN THE LOOSE YARNS

Notes for beginners:

This Loom Knit Granny Round Pattern uses a **Gathered Bind-off.  See below for details:

Move to the next loop to the left and pull the working yarns through again and leave loop on the peg. Continue until ALL pegs have the working strands woven through, including the beginning loom the strands came out of.

Take all loops off of the loom & pull the drawstring. Feed the extra through the top & turn your circle upside down. Using a crochet hook loop the extra through a few spots tying off to secure. Weave the excess.


Weave in all loose strands from end (or any color changes made).

  1. I’m new to loom knitting and was wanting to know how to connect these for a blanket?

  2. I was testing out your design, and grabbed my 24-peg circle, and was too lazy to go grab the correct one. So I did 24 divided by 6 got 4. So I put a marker on 4 pegs … And it worked perfectly fine. I loved it. Grandson loved the finished “cushie”…

  3. hi…i am curious about the 3-strand wrap. is that only for the cast on or is it through out the pattern. so wrap 3 times then wrap once more and knit off. purl would be the same? one working yarn and 3 wrapped? then when you reach the starting peg, re-wrap 3 times? i am all for a tighter and neater knit even if it takes a little longer.

  4. If i use the largest loom to make placemats must i still mark every sixth peg or should i change the amount?

  5. Hi, a question about making a cat “blanket” for a shelter animal. I bought a larger loom, 40 pegs I believe. Can I use that to make a blanket, not sewing them together but just “knitting” until I get the right size? I cannot crochet/knit and am truly TRULY 🙂 a beginner and have no idea what to do or how to do it but will watch your video. Any suggestions at all? Thanks so much.

    • Hi Patty,
      You can use a 40-peg loom to make a blanket that doesn’t need to be sewn. I’m not sure how big you are looking to make a cat blanket, but for a very small blanket a flat panel using all 40-pegs could work. If you need it wider, Kristen has a video on her YouTube channel for a hexagon blanket that is knit in wedges and, as the name implies, is hexagon shaped. Here’s the link to that video. The other method to knit a blanket any size is the Ten Stitch Blanket, but some of the techniques may be a bit too much for a beginner. Kristen demonstrates the technique using 5 pegs on the jumbo Zippy Loom. I hope these help! Joann

  6. Is there any way to get a video how to connect these. My daughter has tons thrown in my box. And was thinking of suprising her with an afghan of all the rounds she has done. Can’t seem to find a tutorial of sewing them together as I don’t know ho to knit or crochet.

    • Yes! I actually have a video on how to connect them. It does use single crochet but its fairly simple to learn that stitch. You can also connect by way of a tapestry needle and yarn in a whip stitch or invisible stitch.

  7. Thank you for this! I’m a beginner, and have two questions:

    1) Would using one strand of medium/worsted instead of three strands work? Or would this give the finished piece a web-like look?

    2) Is this pattern adaptable for a 12-peg loom?

    Thank you for a great site and videos.

  8. I watched the video and this is so easy to make. I am thinking about making afghan for my twin brother, who is ill and bed ridden.

  9. I just recently purchased my looms and love them,and your video has also shown me a new design.Thank you for being so clear about how you do this.

  10. I would like to change colors somewhere in the middle for a turtle shell. Is there a better way then creating a knot and trying to hide it?

  11. very interesting.

  12. I love these! Do you have a tutorial showing how to connect these to make the afghan?

    I am having so much fun with the round! I now have 50 or so completed for an afghan for my fourth grade daughter. I have solid pink, solid brown, and multi-color pink and brown rounds. The brand is Loops & Threads Charisma for all colors. THANK YOU for sharing! Because of you, I am passing on a beautiful keepsake for my daughter! She can’t wait to cuddle up with her new blanket on her reading chair and get into a good book. THANK YOU again!

  14. This is great!! Thanks for such a clear YouTube video. I think I will actually be able to
    do this now.

  15. this is vabulous – enjoy this a lot – thank you so much

  16. Oh, I love this! I love to learn new and different things to make with my knitting looms. This is super nifty. Thanks so much for sharing.
