No Knitting, Knit Techniques for Fun ~ #Craftastherapy

Yarn Month Title Image

This is a great way to relax, and/or to gain an understanding of how this whole knitting concept works. At the end of the day, it’s all weaving. You can make, belts, bracelets, headbands, mug cosies, narrow scarves: anything which needs to be simple, narrow or easily circular. Multi-coloured or patterned wool would be great!

Please share any ideas that you come up with in the comments and share what you’re making with me on Twitter via catephoenixproj

I had this Knitting Nancy set when I was a child, which is basically a French Knitting tool. It intrigued me, but I could never come up with any good ideas on what to make. You can now get these types of loom devices in all kinds of sizes and as an adult, and thanks to Pinterest, there are all kinds of projects which are easy to make. Try this account for ideas.

A video featuring a larger, circular loom is included at the end of this post.

If you would like to try French Knitting, this video will help you to get started. All you need is glue, toilet paper tubes, rubber bands and a few popsicle sticks.
