    I love your stitch markers how did you make them or did you buy them if so where? I tried the jewerly rings for necklaces but they won’t fit over the pegs even the toggel rings.

    The video’s were great and you did a great job explaining and demonstating it too! I feel confident that I could reproduce it!

    Hi Bethany and Happy New Year! You have such a delightful website and blog.

    I just purchased your pattern for, Girl Gauntlets, and have a question. At the beginning of the instructions you say to use the “Fine Gauge” method cast on. I’m not familiar with that term or method. Is there a place I can look it up to learn it? Thank you for your help. NO Hurry! Enjoy these Holidays with your family.

  13. ANNMARIE says:

    Hi Bethany,

    I am new to looming and I trying to loom your mittens. I am having a problem with the fingertip shaping rows. The k1, e-wrap1 instructions. Could you please help me with this. Hope to hear from you soon.

    Have a nice day!

  14. Deanna says:


    I am a beginner kniffty knitter and I’m trying to do the cable mug hug, I know I’m ambitious. When it says Rows 1 & 2: slip turning peg, k1 p1 k4 p1 k2. what does it mean to ‘slip turning peg’?


  15. gettinitpegged says:

    Hi, Deanna!

    It’s excellent that you’re being so ambitious! You’ll love the mughugs…they’re so cozy. 🙂

    Okay…to slip a peg means to just not knit it. So you will just skip the first peg in each row, and begin knitting with the 2nd peg. This give your edges a nice braided look when complete. 🙂 It’s that easy!

    I’d love to see a pic when you’re done…we could post it on the Clique Pics page! ;D

  16. Marcie says:

    Love the video’s excellent work. Love listining to you talk.

    Oh how I love your site as well at the patterns and tut’s!!! I just finished my first Scrubby!!! LOVE IT!! I am going to make a ton of them and use them as stocking stuffers for the family!!! One thing I think I might do different on the next on is cutting the end tail really long so that I might do an I-cord for hanging purposes, ie the shower. Other than that it was an easy project to do even with 4 kids 3 and younger running wild in the house!!!! Thanks for being so talented so that the rest of us may learn from your experience!! Can’t wait to try the many other patterns!!!

    I’m so excited that you’re embarking on a new crafting adventure! I think you’ll find loom knitting very enjoyable. 🙂

  26. crw says:

    I LOVE the scrubbie-O’s & had made several including making them smaller & larger. After a couple of weeks I tried to do it again, after I made the first one I realized I made a mistake but I really liked the result….when I went back to watch the tutorial I figured it out: you knit over first then pearl, I pearled first then knit over, the result was that there is now a really neat edge – the loops that you refer to counting in the middle to verify the number of wedges is now on the outer edge making it look so much neater – though it doesn’t change the rest of the scrubbie-O at all!

    Keep up the good work I LOVE your web-site – I’m going to try the beading next. I never would have thought of that in a million years – but I also LOVE making I-cords. :o)

  27. gettinitpegged says:

    crw: I’m super glad you’ve enjoyed making the Scrubby-O’s…they’re such a wonderfully fun and simple project to whip up in a flash…kind of addicting, too, lol! That’s a very interesting discovery you made with the chained edging…I’ll have to give that a whirl the next time I make one. Thanks so much for sharing that! 🙂

    Have fun with the loomy jewels…another addicting little hobby, lol! 😉

  33. Barb says:

    I just tried making your scrubbie o’s and i found the exact tulle you had gotten from the dollar store but i cut them at 1 and 1/2 inches vs 2 and i ran out of tulle. I had one row left on the last wedge and the bind off. Is it just my gauge? I thought i would make it easier to tranport so i wound the two colors of cotton yarn and the tulle together in one ball. Could that make a difference do you know? What do i do now?


  34. gettinitpegged says:

    Hi there, Barb! 🙂 I’m so glad you like the videos and that you’re cruising your way through some Scrubby-O’s! What a great idea to wind your own “Scrubby-O Yarn”…that’s very organized thinking and probably makes knitting them much easier.

    As for the tulle…I really wouldn’t worry about it. Just cast on another little bit of tulle (you can tie in a square knot to secure the ends together) until you finish your project. I would think that occasionally those rolls of tulle you find at the dollar store might not be measured exactly right and therefore you might find yourself a little short. 😉 No worries, just get as much as you can out of the roll and consider it a great deal for the price paid.


  35. Dee says:

    Dear Bethany,
    I was hoping to see how to cable stitch on a rectangular loom, for a scarf project. Unfortunately, I’m very new to loom knitting and was hoping to see a video. Maybe someone can explain or demonstrate with a video. Thank you

  36. gettinitpegged says:

    Hello Dee! 🙂

    The cable stitch is really the same no matter what type of loom you use…you can find a few links toward the bottom of the Twisted Stitches page for videos on this technique by Isela Phelps….hope that helps! 🙂

  37. StacyJ says:

    Bethany, thank you soooo much for the instructions on the I-Cord seaming! I saw that on your pinwheel and fell in love with it. I’m to the point where I’m doing the edging now and I needed to research how to seam the two pieces together! I’m so glad you were kind enough to put that on here for all of us to enjoy! I’m sure I’ll be using it on much more than just this blanket, but it’s a start! Thanks again!!!

  38. gettinitpegged says:

    Oh, you’re so welcome, Stacy! 🙂 As it happens, I’m working on this very same technique right now! I’m really enjoying how this one is coming out…sweet!

    Just a little reminder on this technique: make sure to make your I-cord stitches fairly loose so that your I-cord matches the same tension as your blanket stitches. 😉

    Happy Looming!


  39. Bethany,
    Just watched your tutorials on here for fun while waiting for the dryer to finish it’s thing! I have so enjoyed all of your tutorials, and they keep inspiring me to try different things on the looms. Thank you, again, for all the videos and the time you put into them:)

    I am learning to loom. I have a problem following the patterns until I see a video. I practice what I see on the videos until I can get them right. The wonderful women I work with all benefit. We are all new to looming, but are already trying to loom for charity or churchs. We are growing everyday and I see how it has brought a lot of good women together.

    Bethany, Thank you so much for the video on the right cross on the mug hug pattern. I just could not get it until I saw the video. God Bless you.

  41. gettinitpegged says:

    Dina, I’m so very glad to hear that this video series has helped you on your loomy adventures! 😀 Thank you so much for letting me know so! How exciting to be able to be learning with a wonderful group of ladies that are sharing the love of loom knitting…that’s just so terrific to hear!

    Loved the beaded jewelry video – do you have any instructionals (video or written) on how to actually do this?? Is it only using a few pegs?? I guess I am confused since I am a beginner, but I LOVE making jewelry and would love to incorporate this into my projects.

  44. gettinitpegged says:

    Hello, Kris! 🙂 Isn’t playing with beads on the loom fun…what a great concept, right?

  45. Michelle says:

    Hi Bethany
    I am trying to do scrubbie o’s and when you finished the first wedge you said do it all over again without taking it off …. guess i got lost i didnt know if you could send me the info on how to keep doing it . I guess i wish the video kept going after you finished the first wedge as it showed on your part 2 video. My email is baybbug2@yahoo.com. I look forward to seing how you kept making it past the first wedge.


  46. gettinitpegged says:

    Hi Michelle 🙂

    You’re exactly right about just starting the wedge instructions over again (minus the cast on steps). Just take a deep breath and give it a try. You’ll see how it forms the different segments of a “pie” all connected as one. It’s really cool how it works and you’ll see how amazingly simple it really is once you dive in. 😉

    I’ve only done the ewrap knit over stitch. I didn’t realize you can do so much more. Your videos have sure inspired me to try more. thank you for your time. I’ll be back to watch a lot more to learn!

  49. Hi Bethany, I had the same question as Michelle. I ordered several of the patterns and can’t wait to get started. I have been shopping for tulle and found so many wonderful colors. I haven’t started on the Scrubby-O’s yet. Thanks for the information to just keep going on to the next wedge without casting on again.

  53. Stacey says:

    I need help please. I am double loom knitting and I notice that my pattern has flipped sides That is, the side that looks similar to a knit pattern and the alternate side that looks like a fancy braided design just reverse themselves and flip to the alternate side. I have no idea what I am doing that causes this to happen. Please help!

  54. Hi Stacey 🙂

    Hmmm…the only thing I can think of is that maybe you’re accidentally switching which side of the loom is facing frontwards as you turn it while working the rows.

    Have you tried putting a peg markers on your cable pegs so that it is unmistakable which side is which?


  55. Nannie Coetzee says:

    Morning can you please please mail me a few different stitches to cast onfor patterns besides the normal zig zag stitch I cannot find any pattern books nowhere to buy

  61. belinda says:

    Love these. Now I just need to find something about cleaning up a loose edge where my turning peg is… My cast on row and bind off row are perfect… But that one long side is a mess.

  62. Hi Belinda!

    Something you might try is to slip the first peg of each row. (Slipping a stitch means simply to not knit it…just skip it entirely) This provides a lovely finished edge on both sides. 🙂 The only thing you would do differently with this method is if you are working in a garter stitch, you will need to knit the last stitch on your purl row, rather than purling it. Voila! Pretty, matching edges!
