What's up with Loom Knitting??
Hi everyone..I bought a rectangular Knifty Knitter Loom ( for fifty cents) cause it was out of the package at a craft store..anyway I thought I would get home and just Google the instructions and loom away...Well, I am not finding any "understandable" stuff online..even you tube is kinda fuzzy...any thoughts out there? Thanks

Cannot say I have made anything with mine but AC Moore had a class using this. I attended the class, just haven't taken the time to make anything.Might want to check them out if you live near one.

I just found this video for using a round one, and I don't imagine it would be TOO different from using a rectangular one. What do you think? Is it helpful at all?

I just looked up "knitting loom instruction" on google and got a bunch of hits. Make sure you scroll down for other info on these sites. I've seen patterns on Rav a few times, too.

I've never used a knitting loom. However, I did find these sites, hope they are helpful.

http://www.knittingboard.com/category_s/98.htm

http://www.loomknitting.com/pages/definitions.php

the second link should take you to a list of videos.

Well, Provo Craft (the manufacturer of the Knifty Knitter Looms) has a page with instructions for a scarf (click on the pictures to enlarge). http://www.provocraft.com/projects/k...ngle.loom.html

You could also try your local library, I saw these two books on Amazon.
