Subject: [ROUNDLOOMS] can this be done?
Hi, as a newbie even to this craft, I am sure I have lots to learn. My question today is: Can I use a round loom to flat weave an item?
I want to make a gag gift for one of my favorite people, who is my long distance pastor. He lives in Australia, and is a dj on my favorite radio station on the web. I will give the contact info privately if requested.
His favorite saying is "When I get around to it." So, I am wondering if I can use a round loom to flat knit or weave a round, and then topstitch in the word ROUND TO IT. I would love to be able to do this for him. He is 80+ years old.
Thanks in advance!
- Sure, just dont knit in the round. When you get to the next to the last peg go back around the other way. You might want to do the border stitches differently so the piece wont curl. Thats if you want a flat rectangular piece.
If you want a circular piece its a different method. There are videos on that, too.

- Eve, ThankYou for this. This was exactly what I was envisioning, but did not know exactly how to do it. Now, I can do this little surprise for my favorite pastor/radio presenter.Hugs, IvaOn Sun, Jan 13, 2013 at 7:08 AM, eve schuld <evesch@...> wrote:http://beesybeefiber.wordpress.com/2009/08/11/circular-weaving/ here you go, this site looks really good for a how to do it.
