Knitting Loom

knittingloom#1
2014 was the year of the pompoms and I get the feeling that 2015 will be the year of the knitting loom. So watch out friends and family, you’ll all be getting a new scarf at some point this year (unless I find something else to make!).

Ever since ordering my knitting loom after my best friend shared this tutorial with me, I haven’t been able to stop knitting with my loom. It’s the best £3.55 I’ve spent in a long time. I love a good chunky knit scarf and even on colder Spring days, I’m sure I’ll be rocking one – especially now I’ve learnt to make my own!

I have never been particularly good at knitting, and at the start of last year I really tried to improve, but I still ended up with dropped stitches, uneven scarfs and unfinished projects.. but this knitting loom is really easy to use, I can be watching a film or a TV show (currently can’t get enough of the Walking Dead!) and I don’t have to be counting stitches or worrying about what I’m doing. I’v finished one scarf, and now I’m on to a second for my best friend (as she kindly gave me the idea), with the wool ready and waiting for a third! I think I have a bit of a thing for wool projects.

This is definitely my new favourite hobby. I just need to find some new patterns or other things I can make. Have you come across any tutorials? What have you been making lately? I’d love to hear about your projects!

  • Ohh this looks really cool! I’ve never tried a knitting loom before, I will have to grab one and give it a try. I do like normal knitting but I’m the same, always dropping stitches. I do find crochet much easier! x

      I’ve never learnt to crochet, but I’d really like to. I’d love to be able to crochet teddy bears and animals etc.! I will definitely learn one day! xx

  • I agree with 2015 being the year of the knitting loom because I’ve been seeing a bunch of people doing it. I actually never tried it but I’m quite curious, it seems to be relaxing and I’m sure it’s great to wear something you did yourself! And I love the color of yours! :) x

      Oh really? I haven’t seen many people using the knitting loom myself. Thank you, I do find it really relaxing :) xx

  • I’ve never heard of a knitting loom before! I can’t knit or crochet but I really want to learn. Your scarf is looking fab already! x

      I hadn’t either before my friend shared this post with me! I’d love to learn to crochet. Thanks Josie! xx

  • OK so this looks awesome. I’m absolutely pants at normal knitting as well, so intrigued to hear that you find this super easy (it looks so complicated?!)

    Think I’m gonna have to Youtube it and see what it’s like!!! :D
