In this book you will learn basics, find valuable reference information, math explained, and simply find how to get the most out of your knitting skills. **UPDATE: 2nd Edition just released 05/20/16**
Learn abbreviations and their meanings, stitches explained, how to work stitches, and patterns to get you started. Skills for this book range from absolute Beginner to Advanced loom knitters. If you have already loomed before feel free to dive right in or visit the Loom Basics Chapter first to get a jump-start. Intermediate and advanced loom knitters will find valuable reference materials in the Knitter’s Math and Charts Chapter.
I’m excited to have put together a valuable chart on looms listed in their gauge, with suggested needle ranges, including suggested yarn weight, stitches per inch ranges and even the right crochet hook to go with it all. Metric numbers are also included for the UK/AU standard for yarn. This was a true labor of love and dedicated a whole Chapter on Gauge! Also found here I’ll teach you How to Read Patterns and Charts, convert a needle pattern with a handy reference chart, and calculate formulas for how much yarn you need or how many stitches to cast-on! Check out the Tips and Techniques Chapter for even more!
Besides all the reference materials, you will find 10 patterns by me, including some new and some favorites.
This book has been requested by many of my friends and followers over the years and is dedicated to you all. Thank you for believing in me and allowing me to teach and guide you with my own style and words. Thank you so much for your words of encouragement, they mean more than you know!

NOTE: This is currently a DIGITAL E-BOOK. I will be adding to Amazon asap and making the option to print to hard bound book. Currently this book will print to standard paper and fit in a notebook. Pattern comes with an extra file that is smaller with a large chart of looms for handiness. It is also in the book but won't print legibly.
