The first half of the booklet covers loom knitting basics. You’ll learn about the tools used most often in loom knitting, a couple of cast on methods, how to e-wrap, knit, and purl, and how to bind off your project. Then, the booklet goes into some slightly more advanced techniques, including how to create a few cable stitches on knitting looms.
The second half of the booklet has 6 new patterns so you can put your loom knitting skills to good use. The projects in the booklet use the yellow round Knifty Knitter, the green round Knifty Knitter, and the purple round Knifty Knitter. The loom knit designs include a cute baby blanket, a lovely full size blanket, a gorgeous lace shawl, a flirty ruffled scarf, a sweet hooded scarf, and a fabulous cabled hat. The instructions are easy to understand and the photography is really excellent. At the very end of the booklet, there is also a little information about yarns, gauge, and how to block a project when it’s finished.
Whether you are thinking of learning this fun skill, or you are already an experienced loom knitter, this booklet will be a welcome addition to your crafting library. You can download the booklet right from Red Heart’s website or find it in stores that carry Red Heart products. Happy Loom Knitting!
