Original Ten Stitch Design by Frankie Brown

Loom Conversion of Ten Stitch by Charity Windham

A version of the Ten Stitch Blanket originally designed by Frankie Brown. This version was intended for Jumbo gauge loom measuring 1 1/2″ center to center peg with a peg circumference of 2 1/2″, specifically the Zippy loom from KB. A video tutorial was made and will show techniques in the following pattern (

Use any gauge loom. Need minimum 6 pegs. 5 main working pegs; 6th is used for pick up stitch. 2 Zippy Looms by KB used in sample; connected


Use appropriate yarn for loom gauge (or hold multiple strands as one as needed). Super Bulky ruffle yarn used in sample.


On Zippy Loom sample, With Ruffle Yarn sample measures roughly 4 stitches = 3″ and 9 garter ridges = 5 3/4″

For alternate loom to try that gauge used two pegs as one on a 31 peg loom for the five stitch blanket. So use 10 pegs for a 5 stitch blanket. The 31 peg loom used in the sample is a knotty Knitter with a regular C2C peg spacing of 11/16″ LG Large Gauge or use similar loom. Yarn used in other test sample was Super Bulky acrylic- Premier Yarns Mega. Super Bulky 6. Thank you to Heather Clark DuLuard for her feedback and valuable contribution! Her width is a snitch under 3″ for 4 stitches and 9 ridges are about 5 1/4″, so just a small variance under the zippy with a Super Bulky Yarn.
