Warm Winter Loom Knitting Patterns

Loom Knitting PatternsYou can use a loom or a knitting board to make theseknitting board patterns for warm winterwear. Loom knitting patterns like these are the best way to stay warm in cold weather. Nothing beats a hand-knit hat, scarf, or gloves. They just don't make them like this in stores! You'll love making a loom  knitting scarf pattern and other free looming patterns for winterwear.

  1. Cable Hat, Scarf, and Mittens: This beautiful free knitting pattern to make a matching hat, scarf and mittens involves smooth stockinette, ribs, and cables. Bulky wool makes it all very warm and cozy.
  2. Broken Rib Hat and Scarf: This hat and scarf is a fun and easy variation of the basic rib stitch. By shifting the wrapping pattern one peg to the right every five rows and then back again, the ribs stagger back and forth across the knitting, appearing to be broken. The pattern is subtle and shows up best if using a solid colored yarn. The hat can easily be adjusted to any size by changing the number of stitches cast on and rows knitted. Give it a try today!
  3. Open Weave Scarf Head Wrap: This is a great accessory. Once you have knit it once, you can do many variations. It also makes a wonderful Holiday gift, and it can be knit up in a matter of hours. The entire garment is knit in Stockinette Stitch, and consists of two triangles. It’s the yarn that gives it the wonderful, swirly edges.
  4. Julianne Fingerless Gloves: These knitted gloves offer lots of warmth for the hands and wrists with the fingers free. This glove is shaped to fit comfortably around each finger.
  5. Open Weave Knit Poncho: An oversized, relaxed fit makes this a very comfortable poncho. The fast and design design makes it perfect for beginning knitters.

More Loom Patterns

Loom Knitting PatternsFinally, we have included loom knitting patterns for miscellaneous pieces, all of which would make great gifts. If you're looking for a loom knit pattern that isn't for keeping warm in the winter, try one of these knit loom free patterns. These miscellaneous loom knitting patterns include something for everyone.

  1. Set of 4 Knitted Coasters: This set of four, different-colored knitted coasters is a fun and easy project and makes a delightful gift. It’s also a great way to use up some left over yarn.
  2. Made to Fit Double Knit Slippers: With a few simple measurements and calculations, you will be able to make slippers for anyone, from your child’s baby doll up to Great Grandpa! Not only that, but you will be able to use any weight yarn, the stitch of your choice, and different gauge knitting boards. You truly get to be the designer. Make them big and bulky or lightweight. Design them with a stand up, bootie style, or moccasin cuff. Or, make them with no cuff at all. Stripes, novelty yarns, and different stitch patterns are all ways to make slippers that are unique. Let your imagination soar. These make great gifts, and are quick and easy. This may be the last slipper pattern you will ever need!
  3. Angels Baby Bunting: What a great way to keep baby extra warm and cuddly with easy open button front and drawstring hood.
  4. Two Hour Knitted Potholders: It seems that we have a fabric eating monster in our home. Socks, dishcloths, hand towels, and potholders seem to disappear with alarming regularity. Or maybe it’s just my 2 and 4 year old throwing things away when I’m not looking! It finally got so bad, I could hardly find a potholder to get things out of the oven. Well, with plenty of cotton yarn in my stash, I thought that, surely, I could knit up a much needed potholder without running to the store. The key was to get it thick enough. I’ve found that using two strands of cotton yarn and the double stitch works very well. These are so much nicer and thicker than the potholders you can buy in the store, and now you can make them to match your kitchen décor. Plus, they are easy to knit and work up quickly. So, save yourself a trip to the store and knit a few today.
  5. Diver Down Flower: Use your knitting loom to make this pretty diver down flower, an essential part of safe scuba diving. This free knitting pattern is from craft designer Maria Nerius.
  6. NEW!  Diver Down Flower:  Use your knitting loom to make this pretty diver down flower, an essential part of safe scuba diving.
