    I have done plenty of knifty knitter loom crafts. They have wonderful patterns at their Provo Craft site. I cannot tell you how many baby and child size hats I have done for hospitals!

    I have made some hats, including some with beads (really cute!).

    So far I have not been able to master the long loom, for scarves and blankets.

    these youtube videos really helped me.


    this guy has awesome patterns.

    also a tip: if u take a pen apart, u can run ur yarn through the empty pen before u cast on and that makes way easier to wrap the pegs.​

    Well, that sure is neat! I'm a crocheter myself. My grandmother used one of those looms--it was nails on a board though, and it looked like it would be fun. Those yarn daisies are cute too.

    I make doilies. Takes me a long time, but I love doing it.

    Take care,
    Sharon

    I could never get the hang of crochet. Couldn't keep the yarn straight [​IMG] My Mom-in-law crochets and she makes some beautiful things! I was glad when a friend showed me these looms cause they don't take much coordination. [​IMG]
