Let’s start at the very beginning! These two videos are an introduction designed for those that have never loom knit before. They answer some of the basic loom knitting questions. I’ve also got a whole post dedicated to the subject that includes 13 Questions I Wish I’d Asked as Beginner Loom Knitter.
1.2 Knit Stitches
In loom knitting, unlike needle knitting, we have four ways to work a knit stitch. Each has advantages and disadvantages. This video teaches the difference between the stitches and how to knit each one.
1.3 Beginner Loom Knitting Playlist
This playlist contains some basic cast ons, bind offs, stitches and easy projects for beginner loom knitters.
Many people love the look of earflaps for photo props, for fashion or simply to keep ears warm. Learn how to calculate that formula and apply it to the loom you need.
Take loom that knits in the round (a circle or rectangle or square all work) peg count.
Divide # of pegs by 3 & round up = front of hat # of pegs to leave empty. Remaining pegs divide by 3 for ear flap peg # of stitches. 1/3 will leave empty in the back (opposite of front.) 1/3 is the right earflap final stitch count & 1/3 is the left earflap final stitch count. Either start earflap with all stitches and knit as same width or increase evenly from 1-3 pegs starting to that 1/3 number. https://youtu.be/CW_1BZILnIQ?t=4m3s (video jumps to explanation and shows loom examples)
The Ten Stitch Blanket pattern is a classic for loom knitters because unlike other blankets that require lots of stitches you never need more than 10! The calculators below will help you figure out how big your blanket will be and how much yarn it will take.
This is a terrific introductory article. Thanks so much.
