Abstract: A yarn includes a continuous strand formed with equally spaced equally dimensioned loops for knitting a multi-colored design in a knitted work formed of “p” courses or rows and “q” wales by sequentially pulling one loop in one row through a previously applied loop in an adjacent loop. The continuous strand is sequentially colored along its length with colors “Ci”, “C2” . . . “Cn” to correspond to the colors of the stitches of the design over said p courses and q wales. A method of producing a single strand of yarn formed with equally spaced equally dimensioned loops, segments or section includes creating a grid of “p” courses or rows and “q” columns or wales; mapping a non-random distinct design on the grid to be formed by stitches of one of n colors; translating the grid to color sequences in each row corresponding to the color stitches in successive rows in the grid; and coloring loops, segments or sections of the strand of loopy yarn with the color sequence represented by the successive rows of the grid.

Abstract: A universal hand loom kit includes a peg board with an array of holes. Long pegs are provided each configured at one end to be releasably inserted into one of the holes in the peg board and having an exposed length when mounted on the peg board within the range of 2?-4? or approximately 50 mm-102 mm. Short pegs are provided each configured at the one end to be releasably inserted into one of the holes in the peg board and having an exposed length when mounted on the peg board less than the length of the long pegs. A shuttle stick, a long needle weaver, a short tapestry needle and a comb are included. The kit can be used to create two dimensional woven tapestry-type products and three dimensional embellishments such as flowers, pompoms, tassels and fringes.
