I was at the craft store and found several pamplet-style booklets and Provo's book #3 has something they call a Carnival Throw - looks perfect for a baby. You could email me at kultgirl (at) hotmail (dot) com if you want a scan of it :)

I need help with the purple rectangular Knifty Knitter. The instructions of how to get started on this loom are impossible to understand. This loom doesn't have the rounded ends with a peg, just 18 opposing pegs. I can't find any videos on the web to help. Once I understand how to put on the yarn and knit the first row, I can take it from there. Thank you kindly!

Yahoo groups has a few groups of knifty knitter groups. They are VERY helpful and have instructions, videos, books and free patterns as well as being able to ask others about problems and questions.

Just go onto Yahoo, then to groups and do a search for knifty knitter, and loom knitting.My first project was a dog sweater for my poodle. It was VERY easy to do.

Do you have any instructions on circular knitting on a long Knifty Knitter loom?

I bought some "Loom Clips" for less then $4.00 that allow me to change the number of pegs on my long loom to any size I need. For instance, if your pattern calls for 18 pegs, you just put the loom clips on your long loom so that you have an 18 peg oval, and then you follow the pattern the same way you would for a round loom. Here is a picture of the Loom Clips.

How do you use the rectangular (purple) Knifty Knitter loom to do a single knit scarf?

You just knit using one side. Youtube is the best place for videos that show how to finish off the end.

The first several rows on the oblong Knifty Knitter are too loose, even when I work with two strands of yarn at once. This makes it hard to join squares together firmly. Any suggestions?

Cathi, at Walmart you can buy the working tool and needle for about $1.00. As far as patterns, videos are on you tube. Just type in loom knitting, and if you google 'Knitting Looms' you can find great free patterns. Enjoy. (03/05/2009)

Instructions for Knifty Knitter Long Loom

I lost the tool that came with my Knifty Knitter, and I have discovered almost anything works in it's place. I have used a knitting needle, dull scissors, a metal yarn darner sewing needle, and almost anything else I can dig into the stitches without cutting them or shredding them. You can find instructions on the internet by simply typing something along the lines of: Knifty Knitter, Loom Knitting, and Rake Knitting.

Also go to the Knifty Knitter website. Lots of information there. Or stop by your local library and see if they have any books that can help you. There are some good loom knitting books out there that the library may have. If they don't have the books, ask them about interlibrary loan. (03/05/2009)

Hi Cathi, I am sorry to hear that you got shorted when you bought your Knifty Knitter. I got mine at Walmart and did get a tool and pamphlet with it, so I am wondering if you got a returned item. Unless you can return it to where you bought it (which I am assuming you can't, since you got it on vacation), you will have to invest in a 99 cent tool and a 99 cent pamphlet. Anyway, the YouTube videos may provide you with better instructions. Happy Knitting! (03/05/2009)

What kind of store did you buy it from? If it's a national chain, you might take it to a local one and request another kit with the tool and instructions. I checked at my library and they had a knitting loom instruction book with lots of great photos. Best of luck on your projects! (03/05/2009)

Instructions for Knifty Knitter Long Loom

Several years ago, I received a gift and when I went to open the box to use it (a few months later), there were no instructions. I just e-mailed the manufacturer, and they quickly sent me a set of instructions.

Even if they won't mail a physical copy to you, they might have a pdf of the instructions online. Can't hurt to ask! (03/24/2009)

Instructions for Knifty Knitter Long Loom

I got mine for Mother's Day and could never figure it out. Then, yesterday, I went on to youtube.com and found a girl named Joccy who puts videos on that show you how. She's a young girl and she explains it perfectly! I actually finished a scarf today. Just go to youtube, search Knifty Knitter and you see Joccy. She has about 3 videos. Perfect!

I bought the Knifty Knitter long loom series and there was no instructions with it. I know I should be smart enough to do it without instructions but I guess I'm not.
