Basic instructions for using Oval Looms are in the book: Beginner's Guide Oval Loom Knitting from Leisure Arts, and videos at www.Leisure Arts.com.


Also, here is a video showing how I knit on the Oval Loom:

To make the Twisted Garter Scarf with Flowers, I followed the basic instructions in the book Beginner's Guide Oval Loom Knitting** page 36.  I adapted the pattern to suit my needs.
 To begin, I used the Ultraviolet Yarn and wrapped 23 pegs going clockwise.
For Row one, I knit across.
Row 2 Purl.
Row 3 knit with the Smoke Yarn by skipping every other peg.
Row 4 is purled across in Smoke Yarn skipping every other peg.
Repeat Rows 1-5, until scarf is the desired length.
Bind off.

To make flower embellishments I used some other round looms I have in my stash.

To complete the scarf I sewed the flowers onto the project.
