You could do a row of knit and a row of purl on one side of the loom as about 4 pegs wider than you want the head band..the sew it together when you are finished.

Jeannie, you make it sound so easy, lol.

I think I need to learn the knitting terminolgy, I feel kinda dumbConfused I think all I have done on the looms is the ewrap, is that what you are calling knitting?

OK Jeannie, I was brave and I am doing the knit and pearl thing. It is going pretty well, much, much slower then others I have done and is straining my hands more but I'm gonna get er done, lol!!! Good thing I only have to do about 23 inchs, lol. I'm at about 15 now.

I have mild arthritis in my hands which is scary because everything I love to do I do with my hands, scrapbooking, photography, jewelry making and now knitting and also 20 years of using the mouse on the computer, ugh!!!

Thanks again for the help and education!!!

The knitting and purling gets much faster after you get use to it..I can now knit and purl faster than I can ewrap...but it still takes more rows per inch... you will be able to do so much more!!.. you are going to love it!!... I can't wait to see your head band!!

I have arthritis from my Lupus so I understand!!! I am sorry you hurt!

ok, I've got it the length I need it to be. Now when you say "sew it" together, do I somehow attach them with a stich using the yarn or sew it some other way?

Thanks for your help!!!

Thank you for sharing.

Wow, thanks for all your great comments everyone. I am very happy with how it turned out and my DD loves it. She had enough scarves, lol, so I came up with something else to make here, lol.

There is a link above from Jeannie that explains the Knit and Pearl stitch, it really helped me learn, so you might check that out.

I made it on my small pink long loom, used 9 pegs (one side) and it ended up being about 2 1/2 inches wide. I just kept K&P'ng until I got close to a length that would be good for a headband then measured it around my daughters head. It ended up about 22 inches long. I used the same yarn and stiched the ends together (i did overlap it a bit).

Hope that answers everyones questions, if not just let me know. Everyone is so helpful on the forum it is so great. Thats how I've learned almost everything (that and youtube) I am such a visual learner, the youtube videos help me so much.

Thanks again, Kay :)

I never thought I would find another person with Lupus! I have been battling it for 18 yrs. They actually call it "Rupus" because I have Rheumatoid Arthritis and Lupus both Angry Angry Angry I was so glad when I found the knifty knitter because I can't use knitting needles--my hands are too swollen and stiff and starting to deform so no way! But now I can knit a few things---I just need to learn the other stitches!!!

Your headband turned out really nice and I just love the cute flower you made. Way to go!! I am also trying the knit, purl stitches. I am struggling a bit. I have only done the e-wrap and it goes so fast. When you are doing the knit stitch do you do the flat knit stitch? That is what I have been doing. Is this right? Thanks.

I had to start my knit stitch doing it like you do the purl stitch but from the top... or I got it too tight... after some practice I like to do the Uwrap/knit stitch... this give me good tension... that is just what works for me... you will love these two stitches..they get much faster... much faster after practice!!
