Loom Knit Headband

This is what I made today while babysitting my grandson!

I'm going to try to write up the pattern once I have tested it out again.  This headband is so stretchy it fit my grandson who is almost two as well as my head. It was done on the Martha Stewart loom using just the two 1/2 circles with the blue pegs in all 56 holes.

Loom Knit Leaf

Someone in one of the Facebook Groups asked if you could knit a leaf on the round KK looms. Here is my rendition of a leaf on the 24 peg kk loom.

All knitting is done with the e-wrap. Leaf is done as a flat panel (knitting back and forth in rows).

Ewrap cast on 3 pegs.
Row 1: Slip first peg, purl next peg, knit last peg.
Row 2: repeat row 1.
Row 3: Increase row. Move the end loops over 1 peg so you have a loop, an empty peg, a loop, an empty peg and a loop. Slip the end peg, wrap the peg, knit one, wrap the empty peg, knit one.
Row 4: Slip, purl, knit, purl, knit
Row 5: Repeat row 4.
Row 6: Increase row. Move end loops the same as in row 3. Slip the end peg, wrap, knit 3, wrap, knit last peg.
Row 7: Slip, purl, knit 3, purl, knit.
Row 8: Repeat row 7.
Row 9: Decrease row. Lift the end loops and place the loop next to them on the peg. (eg:The loop from peg 6 goes on peg 7) put the original loop back on the peg knit off. Move this loop onto the empty peg. You should be down to 5 pegs with loops on them now. Slip the first peg, purl, knit, purl, knit
Row 10: Slip. Purl, knit, purl, knit.
Row 11: Decrease row. Repeat row 9. You should be back down to 3 loops on your loom. Slip, purl, knit.
Row 12. Slip, purl, knit.
Row 13: Decrease by lifting centre loop and placing one of the other loops under it, knit over, lift the loop again, place it on top of the remaining loop and knit over. Wrap and knit. Cut yarn and pull through last loop.

I hope this pattern works for you!
