Picot Layette Pattern

Hello everyone!  This month is a Facebook Loom Along for the Picot Layette set.

Loom knit the whole set or just what you need.  The Set: A Picot Lovey (mitered square with picot optional add-on edge), Picot Booties, and a Picot Bonnet.

The set is girl centered but there are alternate to tweak for a boy or more unisex.

These patterns are written out in separate blogs and have a few video references.  There are no full video loom alongs at this point.  I'm finding my full time job and home life has hindered making one.  However, I challenge you to stretch yourself if you find you rely on full loom along videos too much.  The technique visas help demonstrate the techniques spelled out in the patterns.  This blog is a quick reference to all of the patterns in the layette set.

The set was conceived by me and I partnered together with Charity, to design a mitered square that will work well for you. You can actually do this on any loom and with more stitches. This particular pattern was created to go with my Picot Layette set and was inspired by the new sock loom 2 from Authentic Knitting Board. I was privileged to get an advance preview of the loom and got so excited that I created 3 new patterns.

If you are familiar with Charity Windham's Hexagon baby blanket you will be able to make the mitered square in no time. The video for the Hexagon will help you understand the principle

Here are the pattern links below. I might create PDFs individually on Ravelry for convenience to have on your mobile device or to print off for personal use.  Enjoy!

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 Vivaloom.com  I look forward to meeting new people and sharing the love of fiber arts :-) -Kristen
