Loom Knitting Double Wrapping

The transitioning of a beautiful ball of yarn can be maintained by double wrapping the loom instead of using 2 strands.

When we look at yarn balls with a transition, sometimes adding a second ball to make up for the thickness ruins the look or makes the loom unpredictable.

Double Wrapping allows the stitches to be more organized as the layers always go in the same order. If you are double stranding and only wrapping once, the two strands can constantly change positions which makes it still pretty but not as organized.

Casting on requires you to wrap the loom 4 times to begin. Then between each round of stitching, you have to double wrap the loom.

The hat shown here is the real sample from the introduction of this process. You can see, the yarn is completely organized and the fading in and out of colouring is really lovely.

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.
