NOTES

  1. Follow loom manual instructions for SINGLE KNITTING for how to cast on, knit, and bind off.
  2. For Body Front and Back, the loom is configured into a closed semicircle for stability. All work will be done on 28-hole semicircle piece. The curved shape of the semicircle piece does not affect the shape of the finished knit fabric.
  3. Loom can be configured into a variety of shapes to suit your preference. If desired, use additional loom pieces to configure loom into any shape, then knit back and forth in rows on just one side of loom.
