What is Loom Knitting?

Loom knitting is a great way to make simple hats, a scarf, or larger projects like baby blankets and shawls. Plus it’s easy for beginners to learn!

A loom knit hat makes a great gift and they’re easy to whip up in a short amount of time, especially if you use a large gauge loom and chunky yarns.

There are lots of different types of looms to choose from! Here are a few examples:

Basically, a knitting loom consists of a frame with a certain number of pegs that you wrap with yarn, and you use a special hook to make different stitches.

You can change up the look of your loom knit creations by using a different stitch pattern, different colors of yarn, and using different sizes of looms.

The yarn weight you use with your loom will depend on what gauge it is.

There are large gauge looms and small gauge looms, and each type uses different sizes of yarn.

All of the loom knitting patterns below are done on a large gauge loom. I think that’s a great place to start for beginners.

My favorite loom set is by Kb looms. It comes with several different sizes and is really high quality.

You’ll want to use bulky yarn, or multiple strands of yarn if you’re using something like worsted weight or sport weight.

My Loom Knitting Journey in a Nutshell

Long long ago (back when dinosaurs roamed the Earth), I wanted to learn how to crochet. But for the life of me, I could not figure it out.

I tried to get people to show me how, but no luck.

I managed to figure out the basic stitches, but every time I tried to make a blanket or a hat, things got weird. Sides of blankets got bigger or smaller, and I couldn’t figure out how to do hats at all.

This was when YouTube wasn’t quite as big, so I didn’t have that amazing option yet.

I’m a very visual person, and the written instructions in the books I had just weren’t cutting it for me.

One day while perusing the yarn aisle, I came across a set of Knifty Knitter looms. I decided to give them a try.

At first the instructions were a little confusing, but then it clicked. Total game changer!

I finally was able to make a hat! That I could WEAR!

We still have that hat, and about ten million others I’ve made over the years both with loom knitting and crochet.

It wasn’t long after that before I found some YouTube videos on crochet, and I haven’t looked back.
