Kathy Norris is one of the most innovative loom knitters around and her current book is a testament to this talented designer. Written for use with the plastic round and long looms, this is one of the best and most well organized loom knitting books for both the beginner and for those of us who want to learn new techniques and stitch patterns.

The first part of the book lays the ground work needed by offering several versions of basic hat designs. Next is an overview of general stitches and techniques required to make more advanced projects featured in the remainder of the book. The basic hat designs are the only easy skill level projects in the book and are included mainly as an instructional module for beginners. The other projects are high quality intermediate skill level designs that anyone would be proud to create or give as gifts.

The projects in this book include:
* Three hat patterns that focus on teaching the basics for beginners. These are the only easy skill level projects.
* A stunning sampler afghan that utilizes twelve different stitch pattern blocks with an attached I-cord edging that is loom knitted directly onto the afghan.
* Two hat and scarf sets; one in a corn-on-the-cob stitch pattern and another in a honeycomb stitch.
* A felted basket weave pattern tote.
* A versatile hooded sweater vest.
* A lovely lattice patterned throw pillow.
* Fingerless loves with individually knitted "half" fingers.
* A beautiful green hooded scarf called "Robin's hood" that incorporates cables along the edge.
* A striped garter stitch baby blanket worked in eight short row wedges.
* A ridged lace hat with a picot hem.
* A gorgeous lace wrap worked in a wavy lace pattern.

I never could get the hang of needle knitting, so I was really happy to hear about loom knitting and find out how simple the process is. I ordered this book as a kind of Loom Knitting 101 course and have been pretty pleased so far.

Since I'm a beginner, I can't really say how innovative the designs are or anything like that. I can say that I was able to get started right away and produce hats and scarves that were of professional-looking quality. I made a striped hat for my little boy and had friends ask where I bought it, so that was pretty good!

The problem I have with the book is mainly with the instructions for cables and the pattern given for the basketweave section of the 12-square afghan. While the cable instructions say you must "loosely" knit, they don't really emphasize just how loose they should be and the best way to go about ensuring this. I wound up searching on YouTube until I found a video of someone knitting cables. Once I saw that you should use markers on your cable section and double-wrap those pegs on the row prior to the cable, I was able to produce beautiful stitches.

The other thing is that the pattern listed for basketweave seems incorrect. Again, I'm a beginner and it's possible that I just screwed up. However, when I finished the square and bound it off and pulled it to examine the swatch, there were no horizontal lines. It was only vertical squares. In my thinking, if it was an error on my end where I missed a line of instructions, only a portion of the swatch would have been messed up. The swatch was consistent, though. Now, it's still a cute pattern. I kind of like it more than the basketweave. It's like a funky, retro look that brings to mind Flint Lockwood's "coolness enhancement" paint job from Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. But, if someone is really wanting the basketweave, she would be understandably upset with the results.

ok, 1st off I'll say that I'm a beginner at using the rectangular loom (14in) however, the book seems to be easy to follow for the simpler stitches. Not sure about the more complex ones but I'll update this review later.
I'm newly retired who picked up the rectangular loom at a local craft store because I thought it looked simple to use and wanted to make a heavy men's scarf.
I did get some help from youtube tutorials and completed my 1st scarf and it turned out quite well. I'm happy with it and serves its purpose of providing warmth against the biting cold wind.
Not sure that I would make knitted hats but maybe will continue to work on scarves to give as gifts for next Xmas.

I'll update this review once I try some of the more complex stitches in the book.

This is the first time I have written a review but felt compelled to let everyone know how great this book is. It is the best $10.00 I've ever spent on a book. The "look inside" leaves alot to be desired but I ordered based on all the high ratings/reviews. They were not wrong. I am a newby to knitting and loom knitting. I had recently purchased Learn to Knit Cables on Looms from a local store thinking it was a beginners book to knit on looms. Needless to say, I started a project and found out (from this books clear instructions) that I wasn't doing the cables right. This book assumes you have never loomed and gives 3 different hat patterns to familiarize yourself with(3)basic stitches which are building blocks to other great stitches. There are 13 additional patterns and each uses a new stitch pattern. Each of the 13 patterns are something you would be happy to make and be seen wearing. Very fashionable and the knitting results look as if the pattern was complicated but not. I just love the fingerless gloves (half fingered) since I had been searching for a pattern for them. Can hardly wait to make each project.
