Loom Knitting Stitches – A Guide by Isela Phelps

Loom-Stitch-Guide-CollageLoom Knitting Stitches An Easy to Follow Guide

I am always researching loom knitting stitches to put together a comprehensive list. While online I bumped into a guide in a downloadable pdf format. It was written by Isela Phelps, author of  “Loom Knitting Primer”, Amazon’s best-selling loom knitting book, pattern designer, online moderator and blogger.  If you like to loom knit you know that this lady is a loom knitting genius.

She is also generous  and in her generosity she has given us loom knitters the gift of this great resource. I can’t believe it’s free! It has such easy to read instructions. Personally I love the diagrams of the  stitches which I can follow so much easier than a written list of rules. This list can be used for any project you might have in mind from hats to scarves, socks to sweaters. They are all are awesome!

 

Download the Guide

The guide is in a pdf format so you can easily print and keep a hard copy. Like having your own free book. I put my in plastic page protectors so that I could share it with my students.  If you don’t have the ability to download in this format there is a free software download available through Adobe. If you need this: Click Here  and look for the Reader. If not, just lick the picture of the cover below the list of stitches for a link.

The stitches included in this Loom Knitting Stitches guide are:

Box 

Basket-weave

Diagonal Rib

Double Moss

Garter

Moss

Rib

Zig-Zag

Note: That the cover says Guide I and so the only obvious conclusion is that there is a Guide II. Well, I have searched the web to exhaustion and have not found that second part. If anyone knows what the web address it is please share it with us in the comment section of this page.

Start using the loom knitting stitches guide with these great books by the author.

You’ll learn how to make some really awesome stuff. The stitch guide gives you a head start on a lot of the patterns. The books that say ” LOOK INSIDE”, give you a sneak peek of the content and what kinds of projects you can expect to find. I have great appreciation for this feature because not every list of projects is for everyone.

All the books are not just great pattern resources but also great for loom knitting stitches. I am a huge fan of the Loom Knitting Socks book for this exact reason. I don’t enjoy knitting socks maybe it’s because I haven’t made enough of them or maybe it’s because I have made enough of them. I can’t exactly decide but I do love interesting stitches especially for hats, scarves and squares and this book is chuck-full of them.

 

Loom Knitting Stitches

.

Name of Stitches you’ve always wanted. Am sure that like me everybody has had a stitch they wanted to learn but couldn’t ask for help because they didn’t know the name. I have seen so many beautiful hats and scarfs where the knitter just takes a picture but never tells you Anything about how to make the darn thing. If they would at a least give you the name of stitches you would be one step closer.

Note that this list was compiled for needle knitters but it can be of great use to us loom knitters because although the technique may be different if it looks like a rib stitch in a needle knitters photo gallery – it will most likely look like a rib stitch in the loom knitters photo gallery. In other words Loom Knitting Stitches made be done differently from those that have been done with needles but the end product generally looks the same. I hope you can understand what I mean.

Well while trying to translate a stitch from Spanish to English I pumped into this website called Knittingfool.com. WOW.

      Hi Pamela, sorry for the delay in responding I’ve been ill for a bit.
      I would tell you that you don’t need a specific pattern – a basic beanie pattern would work. Just substitute the stitch used by the designer with a zigzag stitch.

    I have just discovered the delights of loom knitting but I cannot work out how to do a purl stitch! I have tried wrapping around the other way but I just get into a muddle! I would love to make the mens’ hat, have all the equipment except the right stitch! Please could you help?
    Thanks,
    Jenny
