The websites KnittingBoard.com, AllFreeKnitting.com and KnittingPatternCentral.com offer free loom knitting patterns. These include patterns for scarves, socks, afghans, baby booties and bags. Patterns are available at various difficulty levels and for a number of loom sizes.
Loom knitting requires yarn, a knitting loom and an optional hook. Yarn is wrapped around the pegs on the loom board and then hooked over to create stitches. Single- and double-knit stitches can be made. Different projects require looms of different shapes and sizes. Quicker projects use looms with large pegs and bulky yarns. Loom knitting creates a two-sided fabric, making it good for projects such as afghans.
