How do I make it for a 3 year old?
STiiTCH (5 months ago)
Is there a way to tighten the seam, make it look neater? I don't want to try because this one had such an open seam, you quickly folded it the rest of the scarf around it so I am hoping it is not supposed to look that way, you just had some bad luck and didn't want to make a new video?

How many skeins did you use?
Samantha Lucas (8 months ago)
Can you use regular yarn not chunky for this tutorial?
Esther Erickson (8 months ago)
Is there another way to finish off the infinity scarf? It looked a little loose and holey when you took it off and completed it.
Kathy Hall (7 months ago)
Esther Erickson I am still trying to find something showing how to finish off on rectangular loom can you help...

What's the perfect length it should be ?? (because I'm a beginner)
Misty Hodges (1 year ago)
This is stunning. Thanks for sharing.
Ruth Smelcer (1 year ago)
That connection seems very sloppy to me. Wouldn't it make a neater finish if that last row was knitted off first, and then weaving top to bottom to cast off.
Pamela Jimenez (1 year ago)
If I were to make this for a five year old, how long do you think I should make it??
dolores lucas (1 year ago)
can i use the long knitting to make the infntiy
Tavia Thiessen (1 year ago)
I just finished mine based on the easy and simple to follow instructions of this video in one day!! ! I'm a brand new loom knitter and I love it!! 💖🤗 I'm soooo excited and I can't wait until winter time in order to show off my lovely creation!! great video and so happy to have another stitch style under my belt
Emma Sorensen (1 year ago)
I spent a few months knitting it because I started and then got really busy. I finished connecting the 2 ends and I pull it off the loom. I connected the two ends and trapped the loom in the middle. To be completely honest, I cried.

if u have thinner yarn do you just do it or do u have to layer the yarn
Ann Balfour (1 year ago)
Use 2 strands of yarn for a thinner yarn. Should be thicker. Just remember, when you are working with the hook, you are always hooking 2 strands of yarn with both the knit stitch and the purl stitch.So, you will have 4 strands of yarn, not 2. Just double everything she does and you will be fine.. I do it all the time, works good for me when I don't have a thicker yarn.
Michelle irby (2 years ago)
If people are looking for replacement needles for their loom kids the type of needle that you're looking for is called a tapestry needle not an embroidery needle tapestry needles have larger holes to accommodate yarn and blunt points

For some reason I thought infinity scarves were gonna be way harder to do. This looks super easy!
Irene mary (2 years ago)
are you use 36 pegs round loom?????
Jacob and Julia Becker (2 years ago)
Thanks for the nice tutorial! It's a little hard to see with the dark yarn, beautiful project though :)
Ana Ventura (2 years ago)
How do you do the fucking knot on your hands
Shelly Waite (1 year ago)
Ana Ventura rude
Martha Macias (2 years ago)
This is probably a silly question but why use a round loom?
Robin J (1 year ago)
My straight looms have thinner pegs than my round looms, so I use either one depending on the wool I want to use.
Adrianne Surian (2 years ago)
Martha Macias not silly at all! The shape makes no difference. I own a round loom set. You don't have to purchase a different shape as long as the loom you're using has enough pegs. I was just using what I have!
Maria Pilar Piamonte (2 years ago)
I bought the same yarn and loving it 😍
pafcaf (2 years ago)
you keep losing me on the ends. Tried about 10 times and still no go.
bakayaroonna8 (2 years ago)
Because we cannot see it.
Chrissy Barmoy (2 years ago)
What happens if you go all the way around the circle and instead of alternating directions, continue around the circle until the length is what you want?
Adrianne Surian (2 years ago)
Chrissy Edmonds then you will have a tube shape, and when you wear it it will automatically be two layers (think of a flattened tube - its double the thickness). There's nothing wrong with that but I wanted mine to be one layer.
krystal young (2 years ago)
how much yarn did you use?
Ann Balfour (1 year ago)
A cowl is typically 60-70 inches so you can wrap it around your neck once or twice. If you are a smaller person, maybe less, taller, maybe more. When you get to about 50 inches, test it out and wrap what you have already made and see how it fits. Alot depends on the size of the person you are making it for. Obviously, children will be alot smaller. I would then cut the size in 1/2 and see where it takes me. That's what is so cool about loom knitting, you have lots of choices.
Adrianne Surian (2 years ago)
krystal young 1.5 ish skeins, really close to 150 yards.
Val Faulkner (2 years ago)
I love this Scarf! Thanks for the easy to understand instructions.
saturena gail (2 years ago)
Thanks for sharing , I will be trying this tomorrow
Kate S.R (2 years ago)
Its Hard for me to See what you are doing
DI Milano (2 years ago)
maybe you should use a clear color for your wool!
Maria Justiniano (2 years ago)
can i cast on going to the right instead of the left???? Going to the left is kind of hard for me.
Adrianne Surian (2 years ago)
Maria Justiniano absolutely. I am awkward casting on to the right! Lol. You'll be going both directions anyway, your starting direction can be anything you want.
Chad Chang (2 years ago)
Hello there! I was just wondering, how wide did this scarf end up being? It looks about 5 inches wide, but I couldn't really tell from the video.
Adrianne Surian (2 years ago)
Chad Chang a little wider, like 8 ish inches? The width will vary a little based on the bulk of your yarn. This is very bulky. A thinner yarn would yield a slightly thinner scarf.
Irene Rojas (3 years ago)
Thank you for helping me achieve my very first knitting project! This tuturial was very clear. Gracias!!
Priscilla (3 years ago)
I just made a scarf. Instead of pulling one stitch at a time, I did 2 rows. Then pulled the stitch over each one. Repeated till done. It worked with less time. Thanks for your tutorial though.
Lydia Davenport (3 years ago)
Great Video!
Toni Raibick (3 years ago)
Hi AdrianneI was wondering if you know how many rows you didthanks Toni
Adrianne Surian (2 years ago)
Toni Raibick a bazillion. lol I'm not sure but I just kept going until I got the total length I wanted. If I had to keep count I would have quit I think. ;)
LindieLee (3 years ago)
Lovely cowl, thanks for the tut. To make an infinity you have to twist one end so it doesn't lay flat.
LindieLee (2 years ago)
Adrianne Surian (2 years ago)
LindieLee yes this is true if it's more important for you to wear it flat. I like the wintery look and I'd rather fold it up flat for storage in the summer months. But you are correct that when you loop it around, there will be a twist in the scarf if you don't twist it before connecting the two ends.
Black Sunshine (3 years ago)
I think I need to dust off my looms and try this pattern. I been knitting freehand lately but it takes a lot longer than a loom. This pattern looks like free hand knit- I should have made a bunch of these for Christmas. There is always next Christmas...
emi (3 years ago)
i just got the same loom and i'm very new to knitting. i've got the first 17 pegs down (going to the left) but the purling is very confusing to me. i keep rewatching in slow motion but i'm still not getting it. what would happen if i just continued to use the kitting and didn't alternate styles between each peg?
emi (3 years ago)
+Chelsea Pruett thank you for your response! I'm going to start off doing that instead
Chelsea Pruett (3 years ago)
+emiomlet you just get a scarf/cowl with less varied texture. The e-wrap knit is perfectly fine if you don't want that variation, but it is a slightly looser stitch.
Ellie Merc (3 years ago)
I found that the dark wool made it difficult to see because I'm a beginner. Love your voice (soft), patience and instructions. I'm knitting a hat at the moment and did not realize that we could purl which is silly (of course purling is part of knitting hahaha). Thanks Adrianne, Merry Christmas to you and yours. (Dec. 13/15)
Michelle irby (2 years ago)
This pattern is called the rib stitch these videos are very nicely done the sound quality is great I'm even able to understand despite the fact that I am blind
TankBritz (3 years ago)
Awesome. I needed this, as I want to make for Christmas for my wife, daughters and daughter in law,. Any suggestions for heavier yarn?
Ashlee Danielle (3 years ago)
I don't think I counted the stitches , how much yarn did u end up using out of the 150 yrds?

Adrianne Surian (3 years ago)
It was about 6 hours all told. I did it in 2 afternoons - but I am rather new to working with yarn myself, so I imagine an experienced knitter could do it in 3 or 4 hours.
IA Diva (3 years ago)
I'm starting this now and am excited to figure out the purl stitch. I heard that you said it took a skein and a half of yarn. I'm clearly a beginner, but what did you do when you had to start a new skein? Do you cast on again or just do another slip knot of something? Sorry for the dumb question.
Adrianne Surian (3 years ago)
I just tied two ends together, and tried to weave the tails into the knitting so they wouldn't show. When you look for it, you can see it, but if you don't know, nobody sees it. :) Not a dumb question! I make things specifically for beginners trying it for the first time.
ctriple33 (3 years ago)
Thank you for the video! I really like this scarf. I just have a problem with the edges of the scarf curling, and I don't know why that is. I notice that your scarf doesn't do that, and I'm wanting to know if there is something that I can do to stop it?
jeanette221 (3 years ago)
+ctriple33 I am so glad :)
ctriple33 (3 years ago)
@jeanette221 it does, thank you!
jeanette221 (3 years ago)
+ctriple33 If you only use e-wrap / knit stitches you are going get curling edges you need to add purl stitches to avoid curling. So you can knit 1 peg and purl one peg until then end or you can do 1 row of knit stitches with 1 row of purl stitch which will give you a garter stitch. Hope this helps. :)
Rebeccista (3 years ago)
+Adrianne Surian i think it curls with thinner yarn? i'm using very very thick yard and it lays very stiff so far but i made it with medium and it was perfect
Adrianne Surian (3 years ago)
I am going to have to leave this question open to other knitters to chime in on. My guess is to wonder if you're knitting more tightly than I did?

+Robbin Runtas There must be something wrong with your speakers. I can clearly hear this video at half volume
Ashlee Danielle (3 years ago)
Ok so I'm finishing the looming burning forgot how long do we make it before to attach the end to the loom again??
Adrianne Surian (3 years ago)
+Ashlee Danielle anywhere from 48-54 inches. Depends on whether you like it to wear closer to the neck, or hang down a little more!
Catherine Veleker (3 years ago)
good demo but that nail polish is just awful. Creates a distraction and looks cheesy.
Catherine Veleker (2 years ago)
You are completely right.
t M. (2 years ago)
Catherine Veleker didn't notice until you said something. pay attention to why you pressed the play button. people do videos for you to watch free of charge and you bitch about nail color!
Ashley (3 years ago)
+Catherine Veleker lol seriously? it looks good.. also it really isn't distracting at all. Some people...

I love making cowls. :) Which yarn did you use for this?
Adrianne Surian (3 years ago)
+vegangelist It does have a bit of shimmer to it, which is most of the reason I picked it to begin with. :)
vegangelist (3 years ago)
beautiful color.  i don't know if I've seen W.E. T&Q in this color or not.  it almost looks like it has sparkle in it, but that may just be the camera.
Adrianne Surian (3 years ago)
+vegangelist I used Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick in Cabernet.
Adgurl Oone (4 years ago)
Love your scarf!! But I'm having a hard time with the purl stitch. Can a different stitch be used? Like maybe the figure 8?
vegangelist (3 years ago)
@Adgurl Oone what problem are you having with it? I know I like to hold the loom upside down when I purl. I find it easier and faster and less awkward to do that way. Maybe that would help? Once you get going, you can get into a good rhythm doing purl. There is a single knit, figure 8 stitch, that you could do. It will just give you a totally different look - not bad, just different. This k, p combo creates a rib stitch. You can also vary that by the number of k and p you do (e.g. K2, p2 or k2, p1 or p3, k2 etc).
Adgurl Oone (4 years ago)
Thanks. I'm going to keep practicing the purl stitch as I'm starting to see it in a lot of patterns. 😊👍
Adrianne Surian (4 years ago)
Gosh, I'm such a beginner, I don't know all the stitches, but I will say this: many stitches can be combined in different ways for a totally different look.  My advice is give it a try, and see how it looks after a couple rows.  If you don't like it, you can always pull it all oout and start over.  Good luck!

Debby Berg (4 years ago)
Thank you this is great and so very easy to follow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Adrienne, is there another way to finish the scarf. Rather than using a needle? I have made a scarf on the round loom before and never saw it taken off this way. Thanks enjoyed your presentation. Well done. Just became reacquainted with my loom again and be trying a K& P project next.
Adrianne Surian (4 years ago)
Hi Catherine - there may be, but I don't know it.  I have always used a needle to bind off the last bit.  It never occurred to me that there might be another way - the loom knitter set comes with a hook and needle and I've always used both.  Would be really interested to hear if you spot another way!
danielle rollins (4 years ago)
hi....just started with the loom....im a crochet-er lol....and ive searched HI AND LOW all these darn loom videos and have to say im into the first few seconds with yours.....I LOVE YOURS.....very little background noise....your voice is great....and you are clear and your instructions are clear and you are showing VERY CLEAR you would be surprised at the people that so do NOT and i have to stop rewind....love your video im so subscribing....
Maxine Schmidt (4 years ago)
The seam did not look tight?
Adrianne Surian (4 years ago)
@shelly m Awesome, thanks for sharing that advice with us all!
shelly m (4 years ago)
when you put the starting loops back on to do the seam, you can knit them over, like how you would for a brim of a hat, to close them up, then bind off.

Adrianne Surian (4 years ago)
I was really disappointed that OF COURSE when I got it on video it looked a bit messy!  Here's what happened to me: it actually is plenty tight, but I stitched the end yarn actually a little *too* tightly.  You'll see that throughout the scarf, the rows come together at about half (or less) the width of what I've knitted.  When I knitted off the end row and joined it with the beginning row, I made my yarn too tight.  So those stitches didn't fall into place like the rest of the scarf - instead of settling to the center of the stitch, they were tightly wound around the sides of the stitch which caused the holes to look WAY bigger than the other stitches in the scarf.  It took a bit of stretching and moving on that seam before I got it to compact to the size of the rest of the scarf and blend in.  That's a great point, and thanks for asking about it so I could explain!
Kadie Arrington (4 years ago)
You did a great job! I haven't ever done much with a loom, but I think I need to start!
