    My wrists swell if I do too much knitting. (I have arthritis.)
    Recently I have been learning “loom” knitting. It is easier on my wrist!
    It is difficult to find patterns on your site for loom knitting.
    We have a “great-grand baby” via c-section today.
    I would like to loom something for the new baby.
    Could you help me?

    I have been looking for a pattern to make a knit hat/scarf in one. It is about 3-4 feet long, and the extra hat can be wrapped around the neck as a scarf. They were popular in the 70s and 80s. If you know were I can get the pattern for this item, please let me know. TY!
