Square Circle Forum

As this month's theme is striped squares, here's a very quick way of doing them on a round loom.

STRIPED 8 INCH SQUARES on a round loom

[Note - re: finishing off the top and bottom edges, this pattern involves the use of the techniques shown in my YouTube video "Loom knit squares - strengthening the edges".]

Cast on 23 stitches of double strands of colour 1 (leaving 36 - 40 inch tail for finishing off) - after which yarn should be back at peg 1.  Count this as Row 1.

Row 2: Join colour 2 at winding peg, wrap above colour 1, secure at peg 23, then knit by hooking colour 1 over colour 2.

Row 3: Wrap colour 1 above colour 2, secure at peg 23 (see photo for example of how this would look) ,  then knit by hooking colour 2 over colour 1.

Row 4: **Wrap colour 2  above colour 1, secure at peg 1, then knit by hooking colour 1 over colour 2.
Row 5: Wrap colour 1 above colour 2, secure at peg 1, then knit by hooking colour 2 over colour 1.
Row 6: Wrap colour 2  above colour 1, secure at peg 23, then knit by hooking colour 1 over colour 2.
Row 7 : Wrap colour 1 above colour 2, secure at peg 23, then knit by hooking colour 2 over colour 1.**

Repeat ** to ** ( ie do alternating rows of colour 1 and colour 2) until you have completed 27 rows.  At this point you should have colour 1 on your pegs.

Row 28: Wrap colour 2  above colour 1, secure, then knit by hooking colour 1 over colour 2.

Row 29 - Wrap colour 1 above colour 2, secure, then knit by hooking colour 2 over colour 1. 

Row 30 - Wrap colour 1 above colour 1, secure, then knit by hooking colour 1 over colour 1.

Remove stitches (which should all be colour 1) onto large (eg 9mm) needle.

Do knitted cast-off, leaving 20 inch tail for butterflying.

Finish off bottom edge  if you have not already done this.

I have been considering striping and you've just confirmed how to do it.  I thought it would be this easy.  I admit I don't finish off the tops and bottoms but perhaps it's my method of casting on....the edges are firm enough it seems.  Anyways, thanks for the clear photos! I haven't thought to use just single strand worsted on these larger peg looms yet....I'd thought they'd make squares that were too gappy...you're not running into this problem?  

(so far I'm using two strands together to do a square...one of worsted, one of sport--using up my yarn stash ta da)
