2.
Cast another round on the knitting loom and secure the yarn around the small peg on the side of the knitting loom.

Continue knitting with different colours according to your taste until the knitted tube is approx. 30 cm long. NB: Knit the two last rounds slighly loose.

Finish: Lift 2 (two) stitches onto the knitting hook. Pull the outer stitch through the inner stitch on the knitting hook. Now there is only one stitch. Pull the next stitch from the knitting loom (clock wise) onto the knitting hook. Pull this through the inner stitch as described above. Continue all the way around the knitting loom.
