I just finished my first loom knitting project. This was so much easier to make than I thought it would be.
I used the new oval loom, in the kit pictured below. This product is from LeisureArts.com
This kit comes with two oval looms, a hook/stitching tool and a book with instructions on how to use the loom as well as patterns for 7 projects.
As you go through the book each pattern will tell you the skill level. Since I have never knitted before, I decided to start with the very first project in the book . . . a basic hat with a rolled edge.
Not only are the instructions in the book easy to follow, but the loom itself is so light and easy to hold onto, which makes this a great kit for a beginner. The pegs on the loom have a slight indentation on the side, which is perfect for sliding the hook into when you are working the stitches. And speaking of the stitches . . . will you look at how PERFECT they turned out! I cannot believe how easy this project was! The whole project went really quickly also. I made this hat while watching television over the weekend.
