Day 4: How to Knit the Bow Knot {31 Days of Knitting Series}

Today is Day 4 of our 31 Days of Knitting Challenge. It’s really fun to figure out how to do these stitches on the loom & hope you are all enjoying them & learning a few new skills! Today’s stitch is the Bow Knot Stitch. I was immediately drawn towards this stitch, just because I think it’s cute. And it’s really not super difficult to replicate on the loom.

Knitting Loom: Regular Gauge Kiss Loom {with 1 r in between the pins & the pegs} – We are working with just one side of the regular gauge modular loom.

Knitting Tools: We are using the knitting tool that comes with the kiss looms, but the tool that comes with your loom usually works best!

    Dear Elaine: Your tutorials are very informative. Does the pattern appear the same way if I use a regular loom like ? I tried your zig zag lacy stitch on the knitting board loom but was not successful.

    • Kelsey Elaine

      Hi Anita,

      Yes all of the patterns and tutorials are the same for any knitting loom that you might have. The only difference is that you’ll want to omit any comments or instructions that involve the pegs – since you’re loom doesn’t have that feature. So when I say, make sure to go behind the pin, just ignore that and continue on in the tutorial.

      I hope that helps! Thanks for watching!

    I haven’t a clue as to what I’m doing wrong. I’ve paid close attention, paused and replayed the video and mine looks nothing like yours. I end up with a bunch of lines and nothing resembling a bow. I’m using a round loom. Please tell me what I’m doing wrong. Thanks..!!

      Hi Darla,

      It’s hard for me to tell you what you’re doing wrong without being able to see your work. The three lines should be tied in the middle with a knit stitch, so if you’re only getting lines, then most likely the issue is around making the bow knot. You need to bring those stitches back behind the knitted stitch before you knit the stitch, so that they will all bunch together and create the bow!
