How do I knit back and forth on a round loom?

by Kathryn Collier
(Caldwell, Idaho)

I am trying to follow a pattern for washcloths and am stumped. I am to use 12 pegs and so I e-wrap the first 12 pegs but it says to go and knit back and forth for the next 18 rows. I have tried several ways that I thought it may be but I am really confused. Please help.

Yarn gets too tight
by: JennyM

OK, so I followed the instructions from above on how to knit back and forth on a round loom but I've run into 2 difficulties:

1) No matter how loosely I wrap the yarn, it gets so tight half way through that i cant pull the yarn over the top of the peg.

2)I'm making baby booties that call for this procedure and it also call out using two pieces of yarn at the same time. Doing this compounds the tightening of the yarn haldway across.

What am I doing wrong?
Is there a pattern that I can make baby booties just in a circle rather than back and forth.

Dishcloth help
by: Anonymous

If you your loom you are using 12 pegs on the 2nd row you would skip peg 12 ewrap pegs 11-1 then knit off. Your working yard should be at peg 1 right now. Skip peg 1 and start ewrap peg 2-12.knit off.
hope that helps

Cris Cross Stitch
by: Joan Wolckenhauer

I finally taught myself the Cris Cross Stitch. I have followed directions from the Authentic Knitting Board online directions and also from a DVD. I am disappointed in the stitch because the two outer stitches on both ends appear as Stockinette stitches, because they are wrapped consecutively. The stitch itself is great, but I don't like the "bordered" effect on the edges. Am I doing something wrong?

Also, where does one look for the answers to the questions that one posts here?
