Today I will introduce a great machine for kids to make basic kitting stitches – the wood knitting loom! As you can see from the picture, this machine set has a square knitting loom, a warp weft rod, a shuttle and a comb in it. Do not worry if you've no idea about it! I will show you in details.
To get started, you will need:
Wood Knitting Loom
Warp Weft Adjusting Rod
Explanation on How to make the basic knitting stitches with the knitting loom tools:
Placing and fixing the cotton threads
1st, cut a long piece of cotton thread, fix one end to the corner of the loom;
2nd, anchor the red yarn to the first wood peg of your loom;
3rd, anchor the yarn to the peg back and forth from one side of the loom to the other as pictured.
Making Stitches on the knitting board
1st, pay attention to the comb teeth on the warp weft adjusting rod, place the rod under the strings in the middle position of the square knitting board;
2nd, adjust the strings, and always make one string anchor in the comb teeth and the next one above the rod. Place the strings in and above the rod alternatively;
3rd, now you've come to the important procedure: switch the adjusting rod, and you'll see the strings are arranged as the 2nd pictured shown, if not, try to adjust them, making sure the strings are placed in and above the rod alternatively;
4th, shuttle the working yarn under all the strings above the rod (or all the odd-numbered strings) from left to right;
5th, now it's turn to switch the rod in the opposite way, then you'll see the strings are placed in and above the rod alternatively, if not, adjust them;
6th, shuttlecock the working yarn under all the strings above the rod (or all the even-numbered strings) from right to left;
7th, you've knitted 2 rows of basic stitches so far. Tighten the cast on with a comb if you need;
8th, keep going back and forth, shuttle the yarn under every string above the rod (or above every string in the comb teeth) until you get to the end of the loom. Then reverse direction, going back and shuttle the working yarn under all the strings above the rod;
9th, keep repeating these steps until your work reaches the desired length. When you have finished the knitting stitches, use your pick tool to lift the bottom string on the each peg off, and gird them.
I've knitted a reasonable length in 10 minutes!
