Another Invisible Loom project. I can’t get enough of their patterns! From the Loom Knit Shawls book. It’s lace, and I love it. I used a yarn, smaller than worsted weight, but not lace, just the right size for this project. It’s called “Ice Cream” and I used the blue and white ball. I also have a pink and yellow ball I’ll probably be making another shawl with. The entire shawl took less than one ball of yarn!
Here it is after Section 1 was finished,
Here is the 2nd section
In the third section I’m shaping the back.
I didn’t take a pic of the fourth section, but it’s the same as the first, just shaping around the shoulders. Here’s the finished project on the loom.
And finally, the finished product off the loom, before weaving in ends.
I didn’t block it, I don’t think it needs blocking, and here it is on me.
You can see the lace more here.
I love this shawl, it’s so soft, and I love the book I got it from. I strongly urge loom knitters to pick up an Invisible Loom book because they’re the best patterns I’ve ever found and almost all my projects are from their books. The books changed loom knitting for me. I realized you could do so much with them.
This shawl was made on 40 pegs, you don’t need fancy looms for most, most of the projects take 60 pegs, and I have several looms that can hold them. I use CinDwood Looms, and love them. They’re definitely worth the extra couple bucks and they last forever. I got my first one (a 90 peg small afghan round loom) last year and it’s still in great shape and I’ve never had a problem with it. I use it all the time. It’s my favourite loom.
So, go loom knit! For the Invisible Loom books, if you can e-wrap knit and purl, you’re set!
