Loom Knit Linen Stitch Cowl Pattern

The present is finished! It is a scarf + cowl! Here I am wearing it!

It is quite warm because it is knit with the linen stitch to make a very thick cloth that looks woven. The cowl is knit long enough to wear as a hood and still cover the back of your neck. I accessorized mine with a ribbon woven around the top and tied in a bow!

Knifty Knitter Long Loom (62 pegs)
Approximately 240 yards super bulky yarn (I used three skeins of Lion Brand Hometown USA)
2 yards ribbon (optional)

- This scarf is knit alternating a knit stitch and a slip stitch (in front).
- To slip a stitch when loom knitting just skip the peg with the working yarn in front of the peg.
- Knitting a peg that was slip stitched in the previous row/round may seem confusing at first, but it is very simple. Begin by moving the slip stitch below the working stitch. Knit only the working stitch, but move the slip stitch off the peg before placing the knit stitch.

1. Cast on 61 pegs using the e-wrap method.
2. Knit 1, Slip 1, repeat until approximately 2.5 - 3 yards of yarn remain.
3. Bind off using the super-stretchy bind off.
4. Optional: weave ribbon through scarf approximately 1.5 inches from top and tie in a bow.
5. Enjoy!


  1. Nice! And I know JUST the person for this! Thanks for sharing.

  2. I really want to make this, but I just can't figure out how to do the linen stitch on the loom. Is ther a video somewhere?

    1. Here is a video I found that should help:

  3. Do you use all 62 pegs? I know you say to cast on 61 pegs but how do you avoid the gap between two pegs if you only use 61?
    Beautiful cowl!

    1. Use only 61 pegs, this is easiest on a long loom, cutting across the loom and skipping an end peg. Once you are finished knitting stretch your knitting repeatedly in all directions to even out the stitches and block if needed.
