Loom Knitting: Beginners Basics | RedHeart

Why Loom Knit?

Loom knitting creates a knit fabric just like needle knit, but the process is super simple, extremely easy to learn and to do! Great for anyone from experienced knitters to ‘want to be knitters’.

Instead of working on 2 needles, the knitter works along the loom where stitches are easily seen; you cannot loose your place, and it’s easy to see if you make a mistake. Keep it simple, or learn intricate advanced stitches with free patterns.

Double knitting is so easy on looms! It works across 2 rows of pegs, and create a 2-sided fabric with no backside. This is great for afghans, shawls, scarves, and any item where you want to see both sides. Learning to double knit is actually the easiest way to loom knit and super fast!
