A Beginner's Guide to Knitting on a Loom
The new edition of the essential guide to loom-knitting for beginners, including techniques, information on equipment and more than 35 projects to try out your new skills.
For those who have struggled in the past to knit with needles, loom knitting is an easy craft to master which children and adults alike can learn in a few hours.
Loom knitting is a revolutionary way of knitting that uses a circular or rectangular loom, or knitting board, consisting of a frame with pegs. Looms are easy and fun to use, even without conventional knitting experience. An individual can create almost anything, from knitted tubes for hats or socks to flat panels for scarves, shawls and sweaters.
This new and updated book is designed as an essential reference and a hands-on project resource for the loom knitter. The first part of the book provides loom-knitting techniques for both round and rectangular looms, and knitting boards. An inspiring design section presents more than 35 patterns to get the new loom-knitter started. Also included are a handy stitch pattern section and a glossary of techniques.
