More Loomy Goodness

Well this was a super fast knit. I used Rowan big wool in color Tricky.

I used the red KK loom and the pants took about 1 hour and the hat about 20 minutes because I had to stop a couple of times for life.

Here they are.

Ok So here is what I did.

I took the red KK loom. and I cast on 14 stitches then I used 2 by 2 ribbing .. thats knit 2 purl 2 for 4 rows.
then I just knit a flat piece for 25 rows using the ewrap, measure the infants leg.. i just guessed at the row number for newborn size. I cut the yarn and left it hanging in the middle of the loom.. then I skipped to pegs and cast on another 14 pegs (you should have two empty pegs on one side and one on the other) so then do another 2 by 2 ribbing for 4 rows. then another flat piece for 25 rows. using the e wrap. then I did NOT cut that yarn. I simply started knitting in the round along the whole loom even the pegs in between that where bare. I knit for 14 rows then started doing my 2 by 2 ribbing for the waist. I did this for 4 rows. then I used the super stretchy bind off. and seamed up the legs and crotch. and voila! wool longies.

then I just used the small blue loom to whip up a hat really fast.. this hat has NO brim I think it is less then 20 rounds though.

Good Luck!

Those are absolutely adorable! I've been having a similar pattern floating around in my head, but hadn't actually put it into reality yet. So glad to see it works! But now I want to see them on a model. Got any kids the right age you can show them off on?
