A Beginner's Guide to Knitting on a Loom

With Over 30 Fun Projects

Häftad Engelska, 2008-08-26

Slutsåld

If you have struggled to knit with needles, loom knitting is an easy craft to master - 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. You can create almost anything, from knitted tubes for hats or socks to flat panels for scarves, shawls and sweaters. This book is designed as an essential reference and a hands-on project resource for the loom knitter. Throughout the book you will find loom-knitting techniques for both round and rectangular looms, together with practice projects. An inspiring design section presents more than 30 patterns to get you started in your new loom-knitting adventure. Also included is a guide to the similarities between loom knitting and needle knitting, and a glossary of techniques.

Nov 08 Here is a knitting book with a difference, and not a knitting needle in sight. If you think you can't knit, or fancy trying something new then how about giving loom knitting a go? These simple plastic looms are a larger version of the old "knitting Nancy" so many of us played with as children, but can be used to make all manner of useful and attractive items. I had heard of these items, but had never seen one until I opened this book. In here you will find all sorts of useful advice on how to choose one, what yarns to use, other items you need to obtain and of course what to do with it. There are projects for mats, hats, socks, baby sweater, blankets, scarves and more to keep you warm in winter and give away as gifts. Learn how to do cable stitch on a loom, make cords, and work in patterns such as Fair Isle and more. There is even a section on felting with typical Search Press thoroughness. Like me you will probably start knowing nothing and finish knowing...enough to make some practical items, which is what a primer like this is all about (or ought to be). The large, colored photos show in easy stages how it is done, and manages to answer most likely questions about things like tension, choosing yarns, how to use the various items that are bought with the looms and more. I haven't seen another book on this subject so maybe it is unique (at least in the UK) and certainly another beginner's book is not needed. * Myshelf.com * July 09 Loom knitting is an easy craft to master; children and adults alike can learn in a few hours and looms are fun to use, even without conventional knitting experience. You can create almost anything, from knitted tubes for hats or socks to flat panels for scarves, shawls and sweaters. The design section will get you started and the book is an essential manual to supplement the often scant instructions supplied with the looms. * Machine Knitting Monthly * Apr 10 This book includes everything you need to know to master round and straight loom knitting, quickly and easily - from technical know-how to instantly appealing designs. It will supplement instructions supplied with the looms and there are more than 30 quick and easy patterns for sweaters and accessories, including projects to felt. * Machine Knitting Monthly * Jan 09 Isela Phelps reminds us that loom knitting is an easy craft to master - especially if we've struggled to knit with needles. Here's a technique you may have tried in years gone by. Children and adults alike can learn in a few hours on either a circular or rectangular loom.
