I have found that Loom Knitting Patterns or at least, good ones are quite hard to come by. On doing a bit of searching, I came across this EBook called Looney for Looms by Linda Spangenburg.
At the bottom of this post, I have included a simple loom knitting pattern for a cowl.
It was great to see that there were loom knitting patterns out there that were for items other than just hats and scarves, which for some reason seem to be the most common garments to knit on a loom.
Loom Knitting Patterns
Looney for Looms is filled with many mixed patterns including:
- jerseys/sweaters for small dogs
- sweaters for babies and toddlers
- dolls clothes and so much more……
Best of all the patterns are easy and inexpensive, and they are made on the Knifty Knitter Looms, like these ones below, but the patterns in the Ebook can be adapted to any loom knitter of your choice as long as the pegs are spaced 3/4 inches apart.
You can click on the pictures if you would like to find out more about the Knifty Knitter Looms and how they work or even buy some looms at the best prices.
Loom knitting is great for people who cannot knit with two needles, or even if you want to get a project done in a hurry. Many knitters as they get older get arthritis in their hands. Fortunately, they can still do loom knitting without too much difficulty.
Looms, unlike knitting machines, are portable, so you can take them anywhere you go. I knit while I am waiting for my daughter to finish her extra-mural activities in the afternoons.
The adult slippers are my favorite, as they come fully lined and knit up in once piece quickly and easily. These slippers make great gifts for your loved ones and they will think of you when they wear them on those cold winter nights.
Looney for Looms only costs $9.99, and if you purchase now, you can start knitting Xmas gifts for the entire family that they will love. You can also save money by knitting for baby showers or even to sell and make some extra cash.
The book can be downloaded straight away after you have purchased it and you can either print it out or keep it on your hard drive.

Please share with us below when you knit your first garment and tell us what it was.
Here are some video tutorials about knitting on a loom for beginners that may help.
Free Loom Pattern
If you want to try an easy loom pattern, here is one for a toast and warm cowl for the winter.
This loom knit cowl is made using worsted weight yarn, and a large oval or circular loom (70 pegs).
You will also need about 320 Yards of wool. It could be different colors or all in one color, the choice is yours.
How To Knit Your Easy Cowl:
- Cast on (E-wrap) all the pegs, then E-wrap again and pull the bottom loops over the top loops (twisted knit stitch).
- E-wrap around and pull bottom loops over top loops (twisted knit).
- Rows 3 – 30 repeat last step.
- Pull the fabric up through the inside of the loom.
- Place the first loop from round 1 on the peg above it and try to line up with the stitches as best as you can.
- Pull the bottom loops over the top loops. (This is the same way you make a foldover brim on a loom knit hat).
- Now you can either change to another color or carry on in the same color. Wrap the yarn around and pull the bottom loops over the top loops.
- E-wrap and pull bottom loops over top loops (twisted knit).
- Do another two rows like this in the same or a different color.
- Repeat these last 4 rounds 3 times.
- With your main color, E-wrap and pull bottom loops over top loops (twisted knit).
- Repeat the row or stay in the same color.
- Bind off, leaving a long tail of yarn.
- Turn the cowl inside out and you can fold over the first 30 or so rows to double them up for a warmer cowl. Use Whipstitch or backstitch or simply leave the cowl unsewn for a long more bunchy scarf.

Great site, enjoyed reading your article. I have tried knitting in the past but never got the hang of it. It was very difficult for me to control!
Loom knitting sounds great. And I think they would be great for Christmas presents, people appreciate things more when you have taken the time to make them something as opposed to buying them a gift that they probably don’t want anyway.
Too true Jenny. As long as you have time on your hands.
I just found the perfect gift for Grandma! She is just getting into this, and I know for a fact that she doesn’t have a whole kit. I’ll get the kit and that book, and she will probably be excited!
Of course after that, I’m thinking our family will get a lot of knit sweaters, gloves, and shoes for birthdays and Christmas.
Thanks for posting this, it solved a problem that I was thinking about for the past 2 weeks!
Glad I could be of assistance Keoni. Hope your Grandma enjoys her Loom Knitting Patterns.
I never thought knitting could be a real big thing but you’ve sure opened my eyes up to it. I did laugh when I say the title Looony for loons though haha. With a name like that I’m sure this product is selling well. I need to get into knitting just to see how hard or easy it is.
No harm in trying Chris.
Your article was very interesting to me today, I really did not realize knitting was so popular and in demand today. The last time I knew anyone who knitted was my grandmother, I did not realize knitting was still done regularly today.
How much do you think it would cost to get started in this hobby?
As much as a ball of wool and a set of knitting needles – extremely affordable. Thanks for the comment.
I am not a knitter myself, but I was looking for gift ideas for someone who is. Enjoyed your post, it was very detailed and explained the information well for someone like me who does not know much about knitting. I did dig the idea that you could also make money from this. Appreciate the help. Cheers
I know of quite a few people that make beautiful knitted and crochet products and sell them for a profit. It is time-consuming, but at least it is something you can do while watching the tele.
