Welcome to LovelyLoomies! I’m Christa Staunton-Plat, and I’m delighted to have created this website to share my passion for designing and loom knitting stuffed animals using knitting looms. I lovingly refer to my creations as “Loomies,” and I hope they bring you joy, inspiration, and a smile.

I’ve always adored knitted animals and toys, but the thought of relearning knitting or crochet techniques deterred me. Frankly, I never excelled at them in the past, struggling with dropped stitches and the complexities of needles and hooks. However, everything changed when I stumbled upon a loom-knitted teddy bear on Pinterest. It instantly captivated me, and I embarked on learning the basic loom knitting techniques. From there, I began designing my own unique creations. And now, here I am, happily loom knitting away, usually accompanied by my favorite TV shows. I highly recommend loom knitting—it’s foolproof, relaxing, and a wonderful escape from the demands of daily life.

Loomie patterns
If you like to recreate my Loomies or are seeking inspiration to design your own creations, I invite you to visit my Etsy shop and explore my portfolio. In order to support the creation and maintenance of patterns, I kindly request a small fee for their purchase. Although the pattern library is currently limited, I am committed to expanding it over time, introducing new designs. However, if there’s a specific pattern you’re interested in and it’s not currently available, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I’m more than happy to assist and discuss the possibility of making it available for you.

If you’ve fallen in love with a specific Loomie and would like to purchase it as a gift, I invite you to explore the finished creations available in my Etsy shop.
