Loom Knitting Primer by Isela Phelps
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.
