Today I’d like to provide my review of I can’t Believe I’m Loom Knitting. Kathy Norris has written a very informative book on loom knitting. In the first part of the book she lays out the basics including the basic loom knitted hat. She shows several ways to make the basic hat. This is a great loom knitting pattern for the novice.
The overview of the knitting stitches and techniques in I can’t Believe I’m Loom Knitting is a good guide for the more intermediate projects. She has written details and pictures of the stitches which will guide the beginner into the intermediate steps. The book covers all the steps from casting on methods to the ways of casting off.
The designer also shows how to do cables on the loom, lace stitches, and multi color loom knitting. I can’t Believe I’m Loom Knitting will broaden your knitting loom horizon.
The projects in this book will take you to the next level of loom knitting. They offer a wide variety using both the long and the round looms. You might try a stitch sampler afghan, a panda hat for that special child in your life, or even a lovely hooded vest. There is a lovely lace wrap which would make a great gift. The projects are all stunning and I am currently working the lace wrap up on my Knifty Knitter for a Christmas gift.
Get I can’t Believe I’m Loom Knitting and become a believer.
The loom knitting projects include:
