When knitting with a loom, you may create different stitches by wrapping the loom in different patterns, or by varying the method of knitting off the loom. One of the most basic loom wraps is with the "ewrap." The steps below will guide you through the process of ewrapping a knifty knitter loom.

First create a slip knot. Secure the slip knot to the anchor peg on the side of the Knifty Knitter loom.
Beginning with the first peg, pull the yarn completely around the peg wrapping from the side furthest away toward the side closest. This will create a cursive letter "e." The "e" should cross on the inside of the loom and the top of the "e" should be on the outside of the loom.
Continue this pattern of ewrapping until all the desired pegs are wrapped. It is common for beginners to wrap the pegs too tightly. Wrapping too tightly makes it difficult to "knit off" when you begin to knit your project.
The number of pegs wrapped will depend on the type of knitting you are doing. "Panel knitting" is done by wrapping only some of the pegs and leaving the knitted work open. "Tube knitting" is done by working continually around the loom without an opening.
When all the pegs are wrapped, wrap each peg a second time for the one-over-one, one-over-two, and one-over-three stitches. You do not need to ewrap the loom a second time for the no wrap stitch.
