Ever felt clueless about where to start with loom knitting? Fear not! I’ve got you covered with some fabulous video instructions and tips to kickstart your loom knitting journey.

The magic of loom knitting? It’s not only super fun and simple but also way quicker than the traditional needle hand knitting. Imagine crafting stylish scarfs, cozy hats, trendy leggings, and snug socks. The possibilities are limitless!

Did you know? Loom knitting dates back to the 16th century and was originally termed as frame knitting. The genius behind this invention, William Lee from Calverton near Nottingham, introduced the concept of machine-knitted stockings to Queen Elizabeth I in 1589. Rumor has it, his motivation was a woman more smitten by knitting than by him.

Loom knitting feels nostalgic, reminiscent of childhood spool knitting. Remember crafting long knitting chains with a cotton reel and four nails? Ah, those were the days! Luckily, we’ve advanced, and the internet offers a plethora of loom knitting tutorials. So, no more waiting for grandma’s lessons.

Loom Knitting 101:

Starting is a breeze! Knot the yarn to the loom’s spool side. Then, wind the yarn counter-clockwise around every peg, circling back to the start. Do this twice to get two stitches on each needle. Using a hook, pull the lower thread over the upper, leaving a single stitch. This resembles crochet. Keep repeating, and with practice, you’ll be a pro in no time, flaunting your handmade knitted masterpiece! ✨
