I'm a new loom knitter and so far only use the knit stitch.
I would like to do a scarf with two colors, but not just starting the next row with a new color and continuing on. I would like the finished scarf to have a diagonal pattern with the new color, maybe adding one stitch each row of the new color, but I can't figure out how to do this.
Does that make sense? Thanks for any ideas.
Yes it does make sense.
Basically what you need to do is to carry the second colour at the back of your scarf like you would if you were knitting on single pointed needles.
The method you would use would depend on what type of loom you are using.
I find Youtube is a great place to find knitting instructions for this type of question, because if it is possible to ask the question, someone will have created a video to show you how to do it!
For example, this video shows you how to do two colour double knitting on a double rake loom:
