How to Make a Knitted Scarf on Your Rainbow Loom

knitted scarf

This gorgeous knitted scarf was made on our Rainbow Loom! We used soft acrylic yarn in a lovely shade of green. We love how it turned out! Honestly, this is one of our favourite Rainbow Loom projects! Although it is time consuming (1-2 hours depending on how fast you are at knitting), we didn’t find the project difficult.

We loved making this scarf so much, we are already taking orders for Christmas presents! rainbow loom scarf

We used Craft Life’s tutorial, which we thought was very easy to follow!

  10. Annabeth Chase says:

    Wow! this is so so so pretty! I was making one for myself and i made it about maybe 2 inches long and it looked really awkward and loose; and then i realized my yarn is quite thin:( i opened the whole thing… Anyways, yours looks really nice, how thick yarn did you use? it’d be great if you could let me know the brand too!

    This is the most amaaaaaazzziiiinnnggg thing eeevvverrr!!!!!! i love you craft life!!!!!!!!! u r the bessttt!!!!!! I’m switching colours, its really easy, when she shows you how to put on another ball of wool ( i’m from England so i don’t say yarn) you just put on a different colour instead of the same colour you already have!!!!!!!!!! BTW, if you wanna know, i am 10 yrs old and yes, i know i made loads of capital letter mistakes and everything!!! Love u loom love!!! although i would like you to update the website a teeeeeensy bit more often!!!!! 🙂

  15. Lily says:

    WOW! I’m going to have to get my mom to get me some yarn, so I can make this adorable scarf!! 🙂 LOL!! Do you have to know how to knit to make this???

  17. Meow says:

    How long did this take for you guys to knit? I’ve only knit like 6 inches and 20 minutes have already passed. Other than that, this tutorial is absolute plain old AMAZING!

  18. Alison says:

  20. Rosie says:

    I love this technique! I made one for myself with tassels and now I’m HOOKED. Now I’ve made four more as xmas prezzies for friends and family.

  21. Eendys says:

    That’s really cool! Though I haven’t used my loom in a month! Also loom love, I have made some really cool off-the hook loom bracelets too!

  22. Tia says:

    Can you make this with actual rainbow loom bands 🙂 I should try it and let everyone know soon but of anyone has tried it let me know if it works with single bands or double 🙂

  23. Moriah says:

    The scarf is sooooooo easy I wonder if you can make more knitting videos on the rainbow loom except the fingerless gloves

  24. Kens says:

    I made this scarf from looser yarn in turquoise and pulled it every once in a while! Then I made a thicker one and connected the ends for an infinity scarf for my mom for Christmas!

  25. RainbowLoomFreak says:

    I am really looking forward to making this for the 2015 winter.
    Thanks for the idea.

  27. Loomy Leopard says:

    This is so awesome! Before this I had to knit it the harder way but now I can just do it on my loom. Thanks alot guys ????

  28. seojung says:

    This is soooooooooooooo awesome! I like the pattern and design but my scarf is way too loose, maybe somehow i didn’t use right yarn…..


  29. AlexB says:

    I am making the fingerless gloves at the min but I will make the scarf once I have finished how long did it take you loomlove?

  30. Skyfalconz says:

    Just watching tv and saw this….. This is a must make for me! Also, I have No idea how anybody could come up with a way to do this! Keep posting bros!!!

  31. soph says:

    Hey LoomLove I knitted this project today and I did it a BIT differently and guess what? It looks like your adorable baby hat! It looked so cute. I put the hat on my WWF ted and I finished it off with pink loom bands to tighten it.

    From Soph or Sophie.

    P.S. Sorry if I’m over chatty because I’m just so excited about it. 😉

    • This is what she replies or says:

      Then you wrap the wool around looser. I don’t think that Cathy Overtuf can see it apart from the fact that LoomLove sees it so yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

  32. This is what Loom Love says:

    Just out of interest, do u guys know how to knit using needles? It would be great if u guys made a video on that as knitting with awesome nice traditional needles is just as important as knitting with a modern loom!

  33. Loom Love Fan says:

    Awesome! Takes like a few hours but cool. This really impressed my friends (they actually thought I knitted this). I really recommend this project it’s so cool and easy to make. For your info you should make this in your spare time.

  34. Cathryn says:

    OMG!!!!!!!! I didn’t make a scarf but I made a cute purse using the same tech- neak!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 😀
