Loom Knit Stitch Dictionary–My Review

Leisure Arts provided this book for my review. When I flipped through the book, I was struck by how explicitly each stitch was explained. Techniques are illustrated with great pictures and instructions.

One stitch caught my eye: Bargello Stitch. In my late 20s, I was a big fan of needlepoint and the bargello stitch. I had to give it a loom knitting try.

Loom Knit Stitch Dictionary–My Project

  • Project:  Reading Glasses Case using Bargello Stitch
  • Yarn:  Leftovers of 3 worsted weight #4 yarns.
  • Loom:  Blue oval loom from Leisure Arts Ultimate Oval Knitting Loom Set. (Read my review of this set here.)
  • Knitting:  After deciding how wide I wanted the case, I cast on 17 stitches because the Bargello Stitch Pattern requires a multiple of 4+1. Following the pattern steps, I knit until I reached the length I needed for the case.

Below are pictures of the work in progress.
