Over 30 Free Loom Knitting Patterns

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

I’ll give you a little refresher on loom knitting, but if you are just getting started in this textile art, there is a wonderful topic page on our site of the what and hows of loom knitting. Then head back here to start your first project!

What Is Loom Knitting?

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

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

What Type Of Yarn Is Used For Loom Knitting?

You can use a double strand of size 4, 5, or 6 yarn for most loom knitting projects. Textured yarn is fun, but this is not a good choice for beginner loom 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

There are so many different things that you can create with loom knitting. Circle looms are great for knitting items such as beanies, slouchy hats, cowls, and more.  You will find many loom knit hat patterns below.

The circle loom is also perfect for the Easy Loom Snowflake that you will find here.  It’s surprising the items you can make with a knitting loom!

We have some great loom knit blanket patterns below that you are going to love!  There is a special loom called a serenity loom that has the structure of an infinity figure eight.

This is the perfect knitting loom to use with knit blanket patterns, afghans, or even for crafting large panels of fabric that you can sew together.

With many of our 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 is an advanced loom knit blanket pattern that turns out to be a gorgeous baby blanket.

If you are planning to loom knit a scarf or shawl, a rake loom works well for this. All you need to do is find a cozy yarn and a loom knit shawl pattern such as 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 would like a lesson on making T-shirt yarn visit our page that 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!
