Loom knitting is fun, easy, and faster than knitting with needles! You can make scarfs, hats, sleeves, leggings, and many other things with a knitting loom! In this instructable I will give you easy instructions for casting on, knitting, and casting off with a knitting loom.

Step 1: Supplies

You will need yarn, a knitting loom and if you want, a knitting hook. I find it easier working without a hook so I don't use one, but some people thinks a hook helps. Knitting looms come in many sizes so pick a loom depending on how wide you want your knitting to be, not how long. You can knit two colors at once, if the two yarns you use aren't too thick. In this instructable I used 1 yarn.
The instructions are confusing
<p>i dont really understand</p>
<p>I learned to knit following an excellent guide I found <a href="http://easy-knitting.weebly.com" rel="nofollow">HERE</a>.</p>
Is this akin to spool knitting? <br>Just out of curiosity. I've done spool knitting before, but never loom knitting. :3
Yes and no. Yes because the process is basically the same. No because the different sizes and shapes of looms create a much wider array of projects that can be completed (chain vs socks, hats, scarves, sweaters, afghans, pot holders, you name it.)
In a way you are right. I had a spool knitter when I was young with four nails on it. The best ones have four pegs or wire loops for easier access lifting the yarn and then pulling the tail down into the hole. I am making a spool knitter at the bottom of my P knitter for making hat cords or for making projects. I loved it as it was the first knitting I ever did.
Yes it is! I love both! :) But in loom kniting you usually use thicker material like yarm, and in spool knitting thinner material.
Love this!!! I loom knit, and have heard needle knitting hurts your hands! You can even do an amigurumi-esqe things with looms,too!! It Is VERY fun for small children too! Instead of the hook they provide, a latch hook works better and faster in my opinion .
Thank you!!! :) I actually never use hooks, i use my fingers.
Its also good if you loop it too tight
I love loom knitting too.. Recently I made a loom out of the letter D and added removable pins so I could work with sock weight wool. Please take a look if you could. Your instruction was very well done.
If you work the yarn towards the inside the tube will go down thru the ring and you wont have so much trouble with the anchor pin catching on your work AND It's easier to see your work that way. Use a Crochet hook with skinnier yarn so it is easier to work.
I've tried that before, and your right it does!
poor kitty
What a wonderful, beautiful and patient cat!
Ha ha thanks!
