Loopy!!!!
Hi, I have wanted to learn how to do loopy knitting since I was a child of the seventies and saw all the lovely bolero jackets women wore then. Does anyone know of a website where I could see it being done step by step and I could copy. I can't find anyone in the UK who knows how to do it let alone teach me. Funny but everyone I ask remembers it. Thanks Lisa :D

Thanks Ingrid, I would love to watch your first link you posted but there seems to be a problem with it.

if it is just seeming like it isn't loading that is because it is a big file. give it time... if you are on a dial up connection give it a LOT of time.

hmm...wonder why that is. i just watched it and it was fine. maybe a virus blocker or something? i wouldn't give up on it....it is a good one. maybe try it again later.

Thanks Knitters!! Do you know how long I've waited to see someone doing loopy stitch, YEARS!!!!! I've just watched the link that Ingrid posted and it's sooooo easy. I'm off to practice, to think you knitters were here all along and I didn't know about ya. Thanks sooooo much, I'm sure to be back soon with more questions but for now this loopy stitch will keep me busy. Thanks Angels! :D :D I'm so happy!!

I knew I'd have another question...What thickness of wool gives the best results for loopy stitch please. Thanks :D
