You may be surprised to learn the range of knitted projects you can make without knitting needles! Long looms are another way to knit and this technique can be easily learned. The ability to make double knit fabric gives more options for surface texture, two-color work and larger projects. The resulting projects can be extra warm and give these items a wide range of uses. The designs in this book range from simple scarves and shawls to the more detailed felted slippers and a beaded mitten/hat and scarf set. Small projects such as the Garden Party Coasters and Place Mats are quick to knit, while the Color Block Baby Blanket and the Reversed Checkered Afghan offer more hours of happy knitting. A gift of the padded-sole Toasty Toes Moccasins is sure to be welcomed. Knitters who lack the dexterity to use needles may find that long loom knitting will enable them to create many beautiful and functional items. Making the useful and attractive designs in this book will enhance feelings of accomplishment and creative expression. Perfect for younger and mature knitters, long loom knitting can ensure hours of fun for knitters of all skill levels. Designer Anne Bipes is an experienced teacher whose designs are sure to inspire you. Her hints and directions will lead you to complete projects which will be worthy of your time and attention. You'll have fun being creative and know your work is well done!

Christmas 10

You may never have dreamed of knitting without needles before, but if you're game for trying something new then you should have a go at knitting on long looms. It's a technique that's easy to pick up and allows you to produce double knit fabric. This use of the term 'double knit' isn't referring to the type of yarn, but rather a style of knitting where both sides of the fabric are knit stitches. It's one way of creating garments that are extra warm, and gives you more options for surface texture and two-colour work. The designs in this book include easy coasters, scarves and slippers, as well as a more engaging arrowhead double knit scarf and pair of moccasins.
