Loom a Square

A place for Loom Knitters to share their knowledge and creativity to benefit the children of South Africa.

Loom knitting has it's own pros and cons. Many special and unique methods of accomplishing what needle knitters do and so we need each other. I hope to meet many other loom knitters here but anyone is welcome.


PATTERN and VIDEOs are on the right side of the page, under the list of members.

Your video included in your pattern on how to do several types of knit stitch, and how to purl, is brilliantly clear and easy to follow because it is in close-up, thank you very much for that.

Just so that all the stuff on loom knitting is available in one place, here are the links to the three videos I did for KAS.  The main message is how quick loom knitting is, and how thick, warm and stretchy loom knit squares are. Loom knitting is a great way to produce basic squares very fast if you are pressed for time.

"Loom knit squares - strengthening the edges"

 "Create a flat panel on a round loom" (for people who don't have much experience of loom knitting. It covers how to cast on, how to continue knitting, and how to change yarn colour).
