Loom Knit Stripes

Knitting Stripes on a Round Loom is easier than you think. Skipping pegs and using multiple strings are the trick.

You can skip just 1 peg or multiples but the more you skip, the more yarn is carried in behind. I find the advantage with stripes is that you are carrying yarn, so you can unintentionally thicken up your hat as there is more yarn. You can basically make the hat warmer to wear. Depending on your climate, this could be a great thing.

I created a hat using Patons Alpaca Blend with this technique. Be sure to watch the peg counts as the small ring shown here has an odd number 31. It is impossible to make every other peg striped with that. If you have an even number, it doable. Different brands have different peg counts.

Mikey, aka Michael Sellick, of The Crochet Crowd, started this online journey back in 2008. A mere hobby in trying to reach out to others as he was mentally struggling with his own issues. His goal was simple, find others in the yarn communities, like him, that have a common interest.

The journey and main baby of the whole idea started with a YouTube Channel and then in 2011, an official website was developed. Michael is not only the face of The Crochet Crowd but also the working engine behind the crowd in self-taught programming, social media and so much more.

Enjoy the stitching journey. Life is short, enjoy this wonderful hobby and all of the learning opportunities that come with it.
