35+ Free Loom Knitting Patterns and Projects

You have found the holy grail of loom knitting patterns!  We have gathered many fun and useful loom knitting projects and patterns to enjoy. 

I’ll give you a little refresher on loom knitting, but if this is your first time with this textile art, there is a wonderful topic page on our site explaining the what and how of loom knitting. Then, head back here to start your first loom knitting project!

What Is Loom Knitting?

Loom knitting uses a loom and a loom hook to create beautiful pieces from yarn fabrics that you make.

There are many types of looms, and the projects below specify which type of loom you will need to create loom-knit blankets, loom-knit hats, loom-knit gloves, and so much more!

What Type Of Yarn Is Used For Loom Knitting?

For most loom knitting projects, you can use a double strand of yarn weight 4, 5, or 6.

Textured yarn is fun, but it is not a great choice for beginner knitters.  With textured yarns, it is more difficult to see your stitches, but those more experienced with loom knitting will not find this a problem.

The projects below will suggest the types of yarn that are best for whatever project you are working on.

Loom Knitting Patterns

Loom knitting allows you to create so many different things. Circle looms are great for knitting items such as beanies, simple hats, cowls, and more. Below are many loom knit hat patterns.

The circle loom is also perfect for the Easy Loom Snowflake pattern you will find in the list below.  It’s surprising what you can make with a knitting loom!

We have some great loom knit blanket patterns below that you will love!

There is a special loom called a serenity loom, which has the structure of an infinity figure eight. This is the perfect knitting loom for knitting blanket patterns, afghans, or large panels of fabric that you can sew together.

With many knit blanket patterns, you can also use a small round loom or rake loom to knit panels of fabric that you can sew together later.  

This is a great way to create a patchwork knit blanket or afghan, like the Patchwork Baby Throw pattern by Lion Brand. This advanced loom knit blanket pattern makes a gorgeous baby blanket.

A rake loom works well if you plan to loom knit a scarf or shawl. All you need to do is find a cozy yarn and a loom knit shawl pattern like the Double Knit Shawl pattern below.

We have a fun pattern for a T-shirt Yarn Rug that is loom knit using, you guessed it, T-shirt yarn!  The double knit creates a thick, comfy rug.  If you want a lesson on making T-shirt yarn, visit our page, and we will show you how. 

The list of free loom knitting patterns below is so extensive that you will surely find a project that calls your name!  Gloves, pillows, cat beds, mug cozies, headbands and more!
