What is loom knitting?

A loom has pegs that stick upward from a solid base. Yarn is wrapped around the pegs to form loops. Using a tool one loop is pulled over another loop and over the peg to drop into the center of the loom to form a stitch. Many people find loom knitting easier than needle knitting and it is a popular craft on Krafters Korner. Anything that can be needle knit can be loom knit.

 

Supplies For this craft include:

  • Knitting looms come in a variety of shapes and sizes. A loom can be round, rectangular, oval or square. A loom can have as few as three pegs or as many as over one hundred pegs. Looms can be purchased having pegs that are placed further or closer together thus creating the knitting gauge.
  • Loom tools are a small straight object with a handle on top, with a small pointed end at the bottom that points outward ninety degrees or curves downward.
  • Yarn comes in many different thicknesses or ply. The yarn you use will depend on the pattern as well as the size of the loom gauge you will be using.
  • Tapestry needles come in various sizes to fit the thickness of the yarn. Generally, a#16 needle is used with worsted weight yarn while a#20 needle is for bulky and super-bulky yarns. These needles are used to weave in ends when the project is completed.
  • Stitch markers come in a variety of shapes, are usually plastic and come in a package. There are locking stitch markers, which close around a stitch like a safety pin. Split ring markers are a circle and a half, allowing the marker to be quickly attached or removed from a peg or stitch
