Common Questions about Loom Knitting
A knitting loom is used for knitting all kinds of items just like with a knitting needle. You can loom knit a baby blanket, knitted scarf, infinity scarf, cowl, or even an entire sweater! The best thing is that the finished items look just like needle knitting.
You can work the regular knit stitch and purl stitch on a kitting loom, and you will never be able to tell it wasn’t knit on two needles. It’s easy to work garter stitch or Stockinette stitch, twisted stitches or even a more complicated stitch pattern on a loom.
There are many different types of knitting looms on the market today. You can use circle looms (also called round looms) for hats and other round items, and there are also flat looms and even double knitting looms. I am really enjoying the Flexee Looms that allow you to configure the loom in many different ways. Be sure to check the loom gauge when choosing a loom.
Circular looms are a great way to make mug cozies or boot topper patterns (you will need a small round loom for these), and there are a ton of amazing loom knit hat patterns you can make on a round loom. You can also work back on forth on a circular loom or use a long loom to work flat panels.
