Let me begin by saying I am by no means an expert. I am merely sharing knowledge I've picked up over the past few years. I've technically known how to needle knit for over 30 years -- I learned when I was 8 years old or so. I did not, however, devoted too much time to needle knitting since there were many other crafty sort of things I was more interested in. Loom knitting piqued my interest almost 3 years ago and then I became a lot more interested in needle knitting as a result. I starting truly studying needle knitting and playing around with it so I could convert it over to the loom for my own personal use and to open myself up to more design ideas on the loom.
How to make the magic scarf: You need a round loom, how wide you want the opening will depend on the size you want. I have done one on the red kk, and a couple on the yellow kk. The red kk one opens up and form fits around the face. The yellow kk one opens up much wider and forms around the face like a cowl. People have used the blue kk to make a very small one or for children.
