Try It Tuesday: Loom Knit Ruffle Scarf


To make these scarves I used about 3/4-1 skein of Red Heart Sashay Yarn, depending upon the size of the skein. The video will show you exactly what I did and you can look at the pictures of the some of the ruffle scarves I have made. There are some I made that I did not take a picture of.



** (UPDATED, 1/4/14)  I was asked on the video how to finish this off and what I did was I used either a thick thread (like upholstery thread) or DMC floss (the whole floss, not an individual thread) and thread it on to a needle. Then ran it up the hole space on the edge of the yarn first (this will being that unfinished edge up so it is not seen) and then through each of the loops on the pegs to take it off the spool loom. Then just double knot it. That's it. The ruffles will drape over it and you will not see the end that is tied up.


This is one of me showing what the scarf look like before I gave this to a friend for her birthday, along with some coordinating earrings and bracelet.


This is one that I made for a Christmas present, maybe it is for you!

(UPDATED! 1/4/14 - I gave this to my mom. When my grandma saw it she asked me to make her one of these scarves - she also really liked the Ribbons Scarf I was wearing at Christmas. So, I made her one of the pink/purple/gray ones that are pictured above. It typically takes me about 2 1/2 hours to make one of these scarves.)


This one is also a Christmas present. It is for my daughter in her school colors. They make a line of this Sashay yarn that is available in the typical school colors. This is the smallest skein. I think she will be excited to receive this because she doesn't have too much in her school colors yet since she is only a second grader.

(UPDATED - 1/4/14 - I recently bought a skein of this yarn that has small sequins in it. It is so pretty! I have no idea who I will make it for, maybe me! I just thought it was gorgeous and would make a great gift when I decide on the right recipient. There is also a line of this year that is called "Sparkle" and has a thin strand of sparkly thread running through it in either the same color or silver.)

absolutely love this, Just finished one using the Sashay metallic in diamonds and I love it. It was quick, only took me an afternoon to finish. I used all 30 yards to make one scarf.Will definitely be making a few more of these and can't wait to try some of your other loom knit projects.

Thank you for sharing. Question: Where did you find your loom that you are working with?

Diane Houdek said...

Someone at work is selling these scarves and I was curious.
Also loved the Chocolate Quinoa Pudding recipe. Can't wait to try it!
