It has been a bit since I had a ‘Try it Thursday’ but I saw this wonderful tutorial by my friend Melli, of Melli’s YarnWorks. I asked her if she would like to be a guest on my blog to share her tutorial with all of you. And she was happy to. I am so honored to share my blog with a talented friend! Melli’s blogs all yours!
Thank you so much Kelly! Okay, everyone for this tutorial you will need:
- Largest round loom in the set (mine is a 41 peg round loom)
- Loom Knitting Hook Crochet Hook (I used a size J)
- Yarn (you can double or single strand, any size yarn will work)
To do this tutorial you will need to know how to make the following stitches: E-wrap method, knit stitch, purl stitch, and how to bind off/single crochet off (all of these stitches have been linked to YouTube tutorial videos for your convenience).
To begin, cast on and e-wrap your first row. E-wrap your second row and start your project just like you would a hat.
Continue e-wrapping and creating rows until your project reaches between 14 and 18 inches in length. The length is up to you, the cowl will just be shorter the less rows you make.
To finish your piece, simply take your crochet hook, and crochet off your project. Because it is a cowl, you do not want to completely shut off the other end. Be sure to make your stitches as loose as possible! This end will be a bit tighter than your beginning opening, but the looser your stitches, the more it will remedy this problem.
Make sure to tie off both ends. The two ends will have a rolled brim to them. If you do not want this to happen, you can do four rows of knit 2 pegs purl 2 pegs at the beginning of the piece and at the end. This will reduce that curling/rolled brim effect. I have done it both ways, and honestly prefer to the rolled brims on both sides!
And there you have it, and easy cowl/infinity scarf made on your round looms! If you want to make a children’s size you can always go down round loom sizes.
