Editorial Reviews

Review

You may never have dreamed of knitting without needles before, but if you're game for trying something new then you should have a go at knitting on long looms. It's a technique that's easy to pick up and allows you to produce double knit fabric. This use of the term 'double knit' isn't referring to the type of yarn, but rather a style of knitting where both sides of the fabric are knit stitches. It's one way of creating garments that are extra warm, and gives you more options for surface texture and two-colour work. The designs in this book include easy coasters, scarves and slippers, as well as a more engaging arrowhead double knit scarf and pair of moccasins.-Knit Today

This book gives very clear directions for using a long loom. It has made it possible for me to help some people with disabilities to learn to use the long loom. I think that the long loom is easier for some people to use than the circular loom, once the threading process has been learned. The clear and detailed photographs are key to setting up the long loom, learning to use it. I am most grateful to the author and publisher for this book. Thank you.

I had no idea you could do a zigzag pattern etc on a loom!
This small book is very helpful in showing how to thread looms for a few different patterns or ideas. When I bought my looms there was no real instruction included. I wish I had had this book then.

Although this is not great...it is helpful if you are new to looms

The book is not everything I was hoping for. I have been loom knitting for a couple of years now and am always looking for new patterns and stitches to try out. I bought this book in hopes that I might learn a couple of new techniques. While I did like the pattern for the baby blanket and was happy to find out how to make an infinity scarf, I was not pleased with the incorrect stitches presented at the beginning. From what I've read and looked up what the author says is a stockinette is really the double [knit] stockinette. A regular stockinette is where you only go down the loom once to make a row using all pairs. And what she shows as the double stockinette is really just a variation of the original. Also, it doesn't tell you to wrap the yarn criss-cross around the pegs, as this is the only way to make the stitch work. If you don't do this the stitch comes out really loose and one end looks awful. And if this is the correct way to do, she doesn't show you how to tighten up the end without the working yarn. Most of these patterns are just variations of scarfs, while I was hoping for more variety of things to make. I do, however, like that she shows you have to make something with different color sides, as I like her instructions for how to purl and do an invisible stitch to connect things together. Overall, I don't think this book is total loss, but I don't think it was worth the ten dollars I spent on it, as I only learned a couple of new things.

I LOVE this book. I've been working my way through each type of stitch and the directions are very easy to follow. I haven't gotten around to making any of the projects in the book, but the projects look great and they are actually things that I would use/make for a gift.

The only downfall is that when I'm done knitting a certain stitch it doesn't look as it does in the picture. I'm using the correct weight of yarn, so that shouldn't affect it, but my stitches just are as tight as the photo graphs. However, this may just be a beginner's problem. Otherwise, the book is great!
