Circle Loom Knitting

Created: October 5th, 2018
For this project I wanted to further explore knitting with a circle loom because I have never done so before and hadn't had a chance to try it during class.,
For my project I wanted to try to use a couple of different sizes of circle looms to see what they would create. From using different sizes, I found that each one could be used to create different wearable objects, for example making socks with the smallest, a scarf with the slightly larger one. From these different sizes I think I could eventually create a turtle neck sweater and worked slightly towards it as I began to get better at making tighter knots. I really liked the idea of the different parts changing colors so I researched how to change yarn while still on one of the looms and did so while creating one of the arms of a sweater. I found it hard to figure out how to end the pieces or connect them to each other to create the sweater, and I thus left some on the looms to figure out with more research.
In the end I ended up creating a scarf, that could eventually be turned into the tech of a sweater if I wanted to and a few other pieces, one potentially being either a leg warmer or sleeve of the scarf if I were to pursue that further. I'm very happy especially with how the scarf turned out and am excited to use it in the winter. I used different size circle looms, as pictured, and created them by stacking loops on the pegs of the circle loom and pulling them over each other, eventually creating the knit.
I really liked doing this project because it allowed me to create something that I can actually use later and as well learn a new skill. If I were to do this again I would choose a thicker yarn that would make knit thicker especially for the scarf so that there weren't so many gaps between the knots.
Bellow are some of my samples from my book!
