Loom Knit An Easy Poncho
Learning to loom knit a poncho maybe a good idea now that cooler weather is approaching. You can see just how easy it is to knit your first poncho by following along with Mumtazm in this loom knitting video. In the video you are shown two different ways to loom knit a poncho. The first was more difficult to follow along with because the bright red color used in loom knitting the poncho faded with the lighting. The second loom knitted poncho lesson was much easier to watch and also less involved. It is not the close-ups you get with most of the other videos you will find on loom knitting videos dot com but I thought the verbal instructions and the explanations included in the loom knitting tutorial made something loom knitters could gain some good loom knitting tips from. I do like the detail and the time Mumtazm takes to draw out the loom knitting pattern. Let me know what you think about this loom knitting video. How easy is it for you to follow. Please include your level of loom knitting expertise so I’ll be able to gauge the appropriateness of Mumtazm’s loom knitting videos for this site.

This video doesn’t show how to actually make the rectangles and how to join them together as in how to stitch it together. Too much talking and not enough showing. If you want to teach people how to knit on the loom, show them step by step, not talk about it, too confusing!

This is not a good video. The speaker hasn’t rehearsed enough and isn’t sure of what she is doing. Very disjointed and too much flipping back and forth.

Showing the instructions for the red poncho, she stated that you cast on and then do a knit row and a purl row five times. Then she said, “You do the long piece like that,” like what? What stitches were used in the body of the panel? I would assume we have the option of selecting a stitch we like, but it was not clear. And again, how do you join the pieces, single crochet them? She also doesn’t state approximately how much yarn will be used in this project. I am a beginner loomer, I have made some hats, scarves, and an afghan. I want to branch out into other projects.

Hi there I am a very new knitter if the loom. I have made a couple baby blankets using the e wrap stitch and a couple small baby hats and a couple headbands I would love to learn more It takes me a bit to learn because I’m a bit of a slower learner and need step by step directions. ( like you are teaching a young child). I appreciate all the help you can give Thanks.

Thank you for visiting LoomKnittingVideos.com. This video was made by Divya Dayan and unfortunately a written pattern was not provided with video. Others have asked the question about how to make a poncho for a younger or smaller person and one suggestion provided by someone who also wanted knit a smaller poncho was to multiply by .75 the directions given. I did not try this but she said this worked well for her. If you would like to take a look at another great poncho video tutorial that takes you step by step check out this loom knitting tutorial by Tuteate. http://loomknittingvideos.com/2020/02/loom-knit-a-poncho-the-tuteate-way/ I hope this helps.
