I've been loom knitting using various instructions on the internet for about a year and decided to read an actual book about it to fill in my skills. This primer reads easily and has some pretty good illustrations. There are also some nice reference charts about yard and loom specs. I only got to do two of the patterns in the book before I had to return it to the library, but they were successful. I think there some unclear points in her instructions, and one stitch simply didn't seem to work the way I interpreted what she wrote, but in general, I think new loom knitters will find this the best reference out there. It's worst failing is very strange organization. ( )

I've just started reading it and I'm eager to make some of the projects in this book. However, I've come across several typos that are rather jarring ; I really hope the projects themselves don't have typos. The text includes a basic introduction to knitting on looms and has a list and descriptions of tools needed to begin. Some of the steps and procedures are a bit confusing when read at first, but become clear when read while working on a loom. The author also explains the differences in yarn and what type of yarn should be used on which loom. I can't wait to get started! ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0312366612, Paperback)

Knitting looms are flying off the shelves in craft stores because loom-knitting is such an easy craft to take up—it can be learned by both children and adults alike in just a few hours. If you have fond memories of spool knitting (a round wooden spool with a central hole surrounded by four small nails) when you were a child then you know how easy it was to create yards and yards of knitted tubes. Today‘s loom are just as easy and fun to use!
Widely available in craft stores, looms come in a variety of shapes and sizes, some are circular, others rectangular, some tiny and some large. The size of the loom dictates the size of the knitted piece although you can easily join smaller panels together to make larger items.
This book is designed as a hands on project resource as well as an essential reference for the growing band of loom knitters.  Clear step by step illustrations throughout show how to cast-on, bind-off and knit a wide range of stitches on both round looms and knitting boards.  Practice projects are provided for each technique, and there are more then 30 attractive patterns to get the crafter started.
-         the first book to provide patterns for an increasingly popular tool
-         comprehensive techniques and information provide the essential back-up manual to supplement the minimal instructions that come with the looms
-         over 30 quick and easy patterns for sweaters and accessories
-         written by an expert in the field
