Stockinette Stitch – Double-Knit Loom Technique

 

Stockinette Stitch is the basic knit stitch for the loom.  Easy and quick, you can’t miss once you’ve learned this stitch!

 

Cast on by tying a little slip knot on the top (back row) left-hand pin (or peg).  Bring down your yarn to the 2nd pin on the bottom and just wrap around and bring the yarn to the back row again, skipping one pin:

Continue wrapping to the end of the row and turn your board around, bringing the yarn around both of the end pins.  Continue wrapping the yarn around the open pins – every other pin.  Now all pins should have a loop on them.

Repeat the first set of stitches one more time.  You should now have two loops on each pin.  Starting on one end of the front pins, insert your hook into the bottom loop and bring that loop over the pin so that you now only have one loop on the pin.  Continue along both sides until all pins are left with one loop.  One row has now been completed.

    My corner pegs only have one loop. How can I keep this from happening?

      Hi! The only thing I can think of is that you may not be wrapping the ends correctly: Continue wrapping to the end of the row and turn your board around, bringing the yarn around both of the end pins.

      Let me know if you still have issues and I can email you instead.

      Chris
