How to do loop knitting

loop scarf

This loop will take you safely through the winter

Knitting a patent pattern sounds complicated, but it is no more difficult than right-left knitting. Let them show you how to knit patent patterns! This pattern is particularly suitable for a loop scarf because it looks identical at the front and back. The scarf can turn around as you like, it always looks great!

What else are you learning today? How to get a great edge stitch. Have fun with this course!

Knitting instructions for the loop:

2

Knit row right-left, right-left alternately. The last stitch of the 1st row is not knitted, but simply lifted off. In this case, you simply go into the stitch with the needle from behind and lift the thread. ATTENTION: Lift off every last stitch of the following rows like this!

3

You knit the second part of the edge stitch after turning the piece. The thread is now at the back between the first and second stitch.

4

The first stitch of each row is knitted like a right stitch, but with one difference: the needle is not inserted into the loop in front of the needle, but in the loop behind it. ATTENTION: knit every first stitch of the following rows like this.

5

In the end, this creates an even finish, which is particularly important with a loop scarf.

6

You now have right and left stitches alternating on your needle. The 2nd row of the piece is worked as follows: The first stitch is the edge stitch and is knitted as in step 4. The second stitch that you have on the needle is a purl stitch. With the purl stitches you now place the thread in front of the work and lift it off together with the purl stitch.

7

Don't knit off, just take off!

8

The following re. Then knit stitches normally again, then put the thread in front of the work and together with the purl. Take off the stitch. You do this alternately until you have reached the last stitch. The last stitch is lifted as in step 2.

On row 3, the stitches you have on the needle look a little different. But don't worry, you have already mastered the most important moves and you don't have to do anything else in this series.

9

With every purl stitch lift the thread in front of the needle and lift off together with the purl stitch. On the right stitch, two threads are now close together.

10

They are knitted together like a single stitch. Voila! That's it.

11

You repeat this until you have reached the desired length. You can always put the scarf on to see how much is still missing.

When you start a new ball, knit through to the end of a row and start the next row with the new ball (do not change the thread in the middle of the row!) Finally, these threads are simply sewn.

12

You can turn a loop scarf once or twice, decide for yourself how it is best for you. This one is a simple loop and is approx. 40 cm long.

When you have reached the desired length, you have to decrease the stitches on the last row. To do this, knit the first stitch as usual like an edge stitch. This stitch is now on the right needle.

13

From there the stitch is lifted back onto the left needle.

14

If the 2nd stitch of the last row is a right stitch, you knit the double stitch together with the stitch that was lifted back like a normal right stitch.

15

If the 2nd stitch in the last row is a purl stitch, you knit the purl stitch together with the stitch raised back like a normal right stitch. You continue like this until you have reached the last row.

16

When there is only one stitch left on the left needle, cut the wool thread at about 30 cm length (because you still need it for sewing) and pull the thread through the last stitch.

17

You can now sew the scarf together like a ring or “incorporate” a twist, as in this example. So turn once!

18

The short ends of the scarf are now loosely (!) Sewn together with a thick needle and the 30 cm long wool thread with very simple stitches. Your scarf is ready!
