I have seen in video people e-wrap all the way around then knit off. I was reading in isela book she suggest e-wrapping and knitting over one peg at a time. Just wondering what you ladies do?

I wrap all the way around and then knit off. I heard that doing it this way leaves some kind of noticeable line in your work, but I have not seen one.

Same here I wrap all the way around and then knit off. I have never seen a line in my work. I have tried one at a time but it was too confusing at least for me.

I e-wrap and knit a peg at a time... I use to do it the other way.... but when I started using the knit and purl stitches lots...I find I like this much better...I love that when you get around the loom once you have finished a whole row... I found also that you find your mistakes much eaiser this way... I now do two pegs at a time on the doubleside looms too.

I tend to do it a peg or two at a time. for some reason when I try to ewrap it all the way around I find that often it starts to unravel and I have to start the e-wrap again. Other times I will e-wrap till it starts acting up again

If you knit over the last ewrap first then it will not unravel on you.

I mean it unravels while I'm doing the ewrap. I get a wrapping then I hit a peg or something and loose the tension so it starts to unwind. I do make sure I knit over e last ewrap if I make it all the way around LOL

i did notice a "ladder" so to speak that was loose and not so great on my first couple hats, i covered it with loom flowers so it didn't ruin my project, but I do one at a time now! BigGrin
