Do you ever loom knit? I do from time to time, though I still feel like knitting with needles is faster, it’s sometimes fun to do something a little different.
This loom knit hat tutorial from Do it Your Freaking Self (great name!) takes you through all the basics of loom knitting to make a simple hat.
She adds in the use of a paper straw to help hold the yarn, which I have never tried before. Has anyone else used this technique?
Even if you don’t, this is a great basic hat pattern that’s good for teaching kids how to use a knitting loom or to learn for yourself.
If you have any favorite loom knitting patterns, I’d love to hear about them!
