Learn How to Knit with Leisure Arts

I have never known how to knit, so when I had this opportunity, I took it immediately. Loom knitting is extremely easy. It took me a bit to figure out the directions but once I did, this is one of the most relaxing crafts I have been able to do on my own!

Leisure Arts includes a Beginners Guide for Oval Loom Knitting with easy to follow instructions for 7 different patterns, including knit hats, a scarf and fingerless mittens! The best part ~ you can make them yourself! 

My cat loved helping :)

I started at the beginning of the book, naturally, as that is the easiest project for a beginner. The hat turned out awesome and my son loves it! It even fits great which I was worried since I didn't measure at all, I just eye-balled the length.

Knowing how easy one little hat can be, I am excited to make more for the shelters in the area. Yarn is quite inexpensive and this hat took maybe a quarter of a skein of yarn.

The kit contains the Beginners Guide, a stitching tool, a small loom with 54 pegs that is 11 3/4" x 5 1/2" and a large loom with 70 pegs that measures 15 1/2" x 9 3/8". I used the small loom, which is meant for making children's items, to make the little hat. The size and shapes of the looms are extremely easy to hold. 

If you have ever wanted to learn to knit, this kit is for you! It is less expensive than those in the stores. I went around and compared prices and this one took #1 for quality and price in my book. Click the link below to get yours today!
