Who Says We Can’t Knit a Quilt?

Who Says We Can’t Knit a Quilt?

Among the many crafts I’ve dipped my hands in, quilting is another favorite.  So what would happen if I melded quilting and double-knit loom knitting?  I designed a simple block and here’s what I came up with.


I used a 10″ Knittingboard and medium weight yarn.  Instead of knitting one block and binding off, I decided to knit a couple back-to-back.  One thing I should have done was knit a row in between the blocks.  I know better for next time!


Download chart here.


Each block in the pattern represents one stitch.  The green blocks represent the green stitches and the white blocks represent the white stitches.  Viewing the chart, we will work from bottom up. In this pattern, you’ll want to always wrap your green yarn first in the row, then follow with wrapping the white yarn.


Working in the Stockinette stitch, cast-on your first row in white.  Continue by following the pattern from the bottom up.


Here is the first pass of Row 1 in the chart filling in the green:



Here is the same row, filling in the white:



Now hook over.


Continue following the chart, wrapping the green yarn first, then the white yarn in each row, and finally, hook over.


Once you complete the entire chart, you can go back to the bottom of the chart and repeat knitting the block.  Once you have a good length, bind off.  Continue making a couple of more long pieces then connect those pieces along the sides into a small lap blanket, or even something larger.


Happy Looming!
