Knitting Looms

Knitting looms are the new thing for crafters. For those of you who remember French knitting, with a wooden cotton reel with four nails in the top,  this will be of no great surprise. I purchased mine just after Christmas and have made a selection of hats so far. The looms come in four sizes to fit a baby; toddler/child; child/adult and large adult.It is easy to made a hat in a couple of evenings whilst chatting or watching TV.

The manufacturers suggest using chunky yarn, but, in the hat displayed above, I have used two stands of cream Aran and one strand home spun.

If you want to try this, I know of friends who have found unused kits in charity shops at a reasonable price.

Give it a go, it’s fun.
