I have seen lots of this lately....loom knitting aka rake knitting....<br><br>
Would like to see some patterns and how they do this....I would think that you are limited to only certain sizes of knitted items if using a loom...or you would be using lots of seams.....<br><br>
Just wondering!!!<br><br><br><br>

Yes, loom knitting *is* quite limited - very little shaping can be done, and unless you have an adjustable-peg rectangular loom, the sizes are very limited, too.<br>
That said, all of my kids enjoy doing loom knitting. We have a set of circular Knifty Knitters (4 different sizes), and I might get them the rectangular scarf knitter at some point as well. *I* think the stuff they turn out is rather ugly <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag">: but they like the fact that they have knit something themselves, so I would never say so! :LOL

There is a kids loom knitting book out there that is pretty good. It has instructions on making your own looms of varying sizes, and things to make. Lewiscraft is where I got mine, and I think it was put out by leisure arts. (but it was a thin book, not the booklets they usually make)
