If you are not sure how to go about with your loom knitting, here are some loom knitting instructions and tips for you on video.
Loom knitting is fun and easy. Loom knitting is a lot faster than conventional knitting with needles!
You can make things like scarfs, hats, sleeves, leggings, socks and many other things using loom knitting instructions.
Loom knitting is much like the spool knitting we used to do as youngsters, just with more stitches. I remember spending hours with a cotton reel with four nails jammed into it making long chains of knitting to turn into mats for my dolls.
We are so lucky in today’s world to have loom knitting instructions online and we don’t need to wait for granny to show us what to do.
To start with loom knitting, you simply knot the wool around the spool at the side of the loom and then wrap the wool in a counter-clockwise direction around each peg on the loom until you get back to the beginning. Then repeat this process so you have two stitches on each loom needle.
Next, you would take your hook and hook the bottom thread over the top one, leaving one stitch on the loom needle.
Then you simply rinse and repeat. As you get better with a bit of practice, you get faster. Before you know it you will have your first homemade knitted item.
