Draw up a loop Video
by: Ratchadawan

Hi there again,

I just finished upload this video on how to draw up a loop to form a butterfly loop. Maybe you've already figured it out.

I will add a video here just in case someone else need help with this same problem.

Here is the video on how to make a butterfly loop as instructed in a butterfly loop hat by yarns-orations.com.

How to do butterfly loop stitch ( a butterfly loop hat from yarnspiration.com)

Hi Cathy,

I needed more info on the pattern and I found this pattern at; https://www.yarnspirations.com/on/demandware.static/-/Sites-master-catalog-spinrite/default/dwae851919/PDF/CAK0116-029295M.pdf

I tried to make a video but I didn't have enough memory on my phone and I didn't want you to wait too long. Let's try doing this without a video.

So, basically you want to knit into a second stitch on the left hand needle that is at a 3rd row below the current row. You'll get a long loop. Then k3 normally. Then knit a long loop into the same 2nd st on the 3rd row below again to make second loop. P1, k1tbl, p1 and then repeat the loops again.

On the 5th row, you will get to knit these loops with knit stitches together so that you'll have the same # of sts as row 1.

I don't know if this makes sense to you at all. I'll try to get the video out to you as soon as I can.

Have a great day!
