Description

Class Experience

Students will improve their fine motor skills as they learn and practice various ways to hold their loom and hook and manipulate their yarn. They will also have a chance to improve their social skills as they interact with other, young loom knitters.
I have been loom knitting since 2011 and have been in love with it ever since. I have written many of my own patterns, converted patterns over from needle knitting, and have even taught several of my friends how to loom knit (including my crocheting mom). I look forward to seeing your learners grow their confidence in this new and underrated skill.
Students are welcome to practice their new skills outside of class, but it's not required.
Students will need: • A knitting loom (Any size or shape will do, but small, round looms are easier for beginners. Bigger ones or ones that you "can shape to your liking" are difficult to handle even for experts.) [Usually around $7-$25, depending on quality, where you buy it, and how many looms are in the set. I recommend this flower loom for smaller hands https://www.joann.com/boye-bloom-loom-set-/8373300.html] • A loom knitting hook (Usually comes with a knitting loom) • At least one color of yarn (Any size or material will work) • A pair of scissors • A yarn needle (Not a sewing needle, this will be bigger with a much larger eye. A plastic one usually comes with a knitting loom)
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Students will be using scissors to cut yarn. Younger students and students with difficulties that could make this a danger to them should have an adult closeby for assistance. (Please remember that Outschool policy requires parents and guardians to stay out of view of the camera.)
Students will also have the option to work with a yarn needle, but yarn needles are much bigger than sewing needles and the tip is blunt, so it doesn't split the yarn. Also, most loom knitting kits come with a plastic yarn needle, to make it safer.
