  1. Leanne Burlew

    To Isela,
    I just wanted to say thank you for posting such great ideas and patterns. I just received my own all in one loom. I have a few other projects to finish first but I look forward to casting on with you here at AKB in the very near future.

    1. Thank you Leann :). You will love this loom, it is my favorite!!!

  2. If you don’t have the loom you used what would be the next best loom. I have the round knifty knitters and the Martha Stewart loom set. Would any of these work?

    1. I would recommend the Martha Stewart with the small little blue pegs.

  3. Love this pattern but… there seems to be an error in the welted rib. The directions state “Row 1: k2, *p2, k2; rep from *, IMO it should be Row 1: *k2, p2, k2; rep from *. I have tried to make this using the original instructions but the pattern I get is all wrong.
    Please let me know if I am reading the pattern correctly.

    1. The stitch pattern for knitting in the flat is a multiple of 4 + 2. I put the +2 at the beginning of the stitch pattern, the k2, then I put the multiple *p2, k2. If we were to repeat the entire thing of *k2, p2, k2–it would be a multiple of 6, instead of a multiple of 6. Also, if we were to have the multiple as *k2, p2, k2–we would have 4 knit stitches together in between each p2. I hope this makes sense. Thanks for your feedback.

  4. Forgive me for doubting, you are correct! Tried this again as written but this time relaxed my stitches on the board to account for the cotton yarn. The pattern really comes alive after washing and blocking the piece.

    The cotton yarn was throwing me off, but had faith and kept working along, with looser stitches which appear to be the key, what a learning experience!

    Keep up the great job, you are awesome!
