Loom Knit Decorative Ball or Ornament for the Holiday

Hi friends!

I have a fun & quick Holiday project to start, loom knit with jingle bell balls inside for you!!!

Use your scrap funky yarn for this and start churning them out!! :-) My idea for these fun decorative balls were to use them as ornaments, in a cluster hanging from a door knob or wreath in a bowl in holiday or non holiday colors, or any other cool idea you can come up with!

Watch the VIDEO below,  Here are your supplies pictured below:
  • Knifty Knitter or Boye 12 peg bloom loom or other 12 peg large gauge loom.
  • scrap yarn with sparkle or other funky or special yarn you like
  • 2 1/2" syrofoam ball or plain ornament ball about 2 1/2 "- 3"
  • jingle bells (optional)
  • felt or scrap contrasting color fabric to your yarn choice (covers ball inside)
  • scissors & something blunt to poke & scoop the styrofoam (can just use kid safety scissors)
  • loom knitting tool & crochet hook

Use a 12 peg bloom loom. Give as gifts or tie to a wrapped packages as well.  Instead of styrofoam balls that I show with jingle bells inside, you can put these around your plain existing ornament balls as well.  As a bonus i included my gift bow tutorial below it if you'd like to add a bow at the base of these balls or in a cluster on a door.  (Learn How to Make a Bow)  Have fun!....Here is the LOOM ALONG Video!

Need MORE?  Watch how to Wrap a Package!..yup I'm whipping these out!  LOL!  Have fun everyone.

My name is Kristen. I’m an Interior Designer & knitwear designer as well as a YouTube Tutorial filmmaker & Video Host for crafts, knitting and more. My Loom Knitting tutorials are great for Knitters (or any crafter) who wanna try their hand and want to know how to convert their stitches over to the loom. Many do it to ease their hands/carpel tunnel or work faster. It’s definitely a growing trend for traditional knitters to take up or people who love crafting with yarn! My site is GoodKnitKisses or YOUTUBE. I also write and sell my own loom patterns on my ETSY shop and on  I look forward to meeting new people and sharing the love of fiber arts :-) -Kristen
