Loom Knit Cables Tutorial

Note, this tutorial is old (2002), I am rehousing it from my other website. I don’t want to lose it and I think people may find it useful, although the knitting looms shown are no longer being manufactured, the techniques still apply to other knitting looms. This is a PDF document.

Blanket sizes and suggested yardage

When in doubt about how much yarn I will need, I consult with a yarn calculator. I recommend the one from Jimmybeanswool.com.

Yes, youContinue reading “Oasis Headband”

E-we’s Cable Beanie Video
