There are two types of loom knitting: single-knit and double-knit. Single-knit uses one row or circle of pegs when wrapping yarn. Double-knit uses two horizontal rows of pegs and yarn is wrapped back and forth between the two rows.
Single-knit is a great way of producing hats, scarves, afghans, etc., and there are plenty of patterns and videos available for the single-knit loom project. I, however, prefer using the double-knit loom. And here’s a few reasons why:
Reason #3: Straight Edges
Since you control the number of stitches, you don’t end up with too many or not enough while knitting – which, for me, always resulted in warped sides when knitting traditionally.
Reason #5: No blocking
When double-knit loom knitting, the edges don’t curl and there is no reason to block.
Overall, these 5 reasons to love Double-Knit Loom Knitting are a great start. But don’t forget, there’s a lot more to reasons to love double-knit loom knitting so dive right in and explore all the possibilities.
