Loom knitting is knitting using the two stitches of knitting: The Knit stitch and The Purl stitch which are the reverse of each other. Knitting is using a single strand of fiber, (or multiple strands used and held as a single strand,) to form a fabric of interlocking loops a/k/a stitches. Weaving forms a fabric from strands of fiber that interlock by crossing each other in an organized way. Nonwoven forms a fabric from a disorganized interlock of fiber. Loom knitting can be humdrum, I made 3 adult hats in a day of other chores, as did a stick knitting friend. Part time of several weeks of very tranquil space has given me a third of a fine beaded (a #12 steel crochet hook to "set" the beads) in a scarf of lace weight, mohair and other fibers.
How do you go from "nice hat." to "wow you made that?"? Look up Purling Sprite and Good knit Kisses on You Tube, add www.cindwoodlooms.com www.knittingboard.com and come back to "Knitting Paradise" and let us know how the trip into Loom Knitting lore is for you. Have fun Moon Loomer I PS: There is more!

Hi Designer 1234,
If near the top of your hat, purl 3 rows, knit 5 rows, then e-wrap loosely one more row, knit over, then k2to (take the loop on peg one put it on peg two knit 2 over, peg one is now empty, continue around the loom. If there is one peg left e-wrap it and knit over.) Wrap the working yarn tail around the loom 1 1/2 times, cut, thread the yarn tail on a big eyed needle,
sew up through each loop on a peg, check to see that all were sewn through, then remove from loom, draw tight, sew to finish, cut tail, and the hat is done. See picture attached, Moon Loomer I

Designer 1234 here: I just tried my first loom hat (ribbed with a band around the bottom. I have instructions - however I couldn't find any information as to how to drop off the stitches. Then remembered this section. I will go and check the places you suggest. I find it quite interesting that so many different results can be done on a loom. Mine is a Knitfty Knitter medium round (for hats) look and is made by Prove Craft & Novelty Inc.

I will go look but will likely start a topic asking for help. I have looked at some of the work you all do and it is fascinating! Shilrey (Designer1234)
