and thumb looms used were 'In the
18 peg Mitten loom but they are now out of business.
Their mitten loom had 16 pegs 3/4"
apart, and the thumb loom had 12 pegs 1/2" apart.
2 ways of
making the mittens, and I am sure you can think of more! The ones
pictured will fit age 10-14 year olds. But you can also do
more rows and use the double knit method with 1 or 2 strands-- lifting
1 wrap over 2 wraps.
Using 2 strands of yarn together, E-Wrap around the looms twice.
Now knit 1 wrap over 1 wrap (single knit stitch) for 12 rows.
Fold up to make a cuff (brim) Knit that row
E-Wrap again and knit 6 rows, up to the thumb.
After you have knitted off the 6th row, carefully remove the wraps from
pegs 1 and 2. Thread a 4" piece of matching yarn through those 2 sts,
and tie in a knot. This leaves a 'hole' for the thumb.
TOP OF HAND/PALM
E-Wrap pegs 1 and 2 twice and e-wrap the other pegs once. Knit
Continue to e-wrap and knit 1 over 1, for 15 rows from thumb hole to
method to remove.
Using the little thumb loom, e-wrap twice around the loom. Knit
Knit 9 rows total in this manner (1 over 1)
Remove with gathering method.
PUTTING TOGETHER MITT
Flip the mitten hand inside out.
Place the thumb in the hole provided with right sides touching each
other, and whip stitch the thumb onto the hand part of the
mitten. Finish off, and flip mitten right side out again.
Make another mitten in the same way.
