For Christmas I received a set of Knifty Knitter round looms. I thought this might be a way to use some of my vast stash of yarn in a new way. So, for the last few days I have been playing around with it. I think I have a tendency to wrap too tightly, but so far, so good. I had some Lion brand Fancy Fur that I had purchased for a dollar a skein which was a pain in the neck to crochet with, so I figured wrapping it on the loom would be much easier. Here is my second attempt at a hat (My daughter has the first one for her doll):
I checked a book out of my local library that has been a great help so far. The little page of instructions that come with the looms is not very helpful and really does not give one any idea of the possibilities with these looms.
Here is the hat I made from the first pattern in the Loom Knitting Primer, with an added crocheted flower:
This hat is made with two strands of worsted weight yarn held together. I happened to have a couple partial balls in my stash, so I am not sure if it is Red Heart or Caron since the skein wraps are long gone. I plan to make a matching scarf for this hat, with some added crocheted flowers at the ends.
