ST. MARTIN'S-Knitting Board Basics. If you have ever wanted to try your hand at board loom knitting; here is all the information you will need to get started. Knitting boards differ from looms in that the material created is thicker and double-sided. All aspects of using the board are covered--from the basics to more advanced techniques--so whether you are just learning to cast on working basic stitches or looking for solid advice on how to shape and join sleeves you will find it here. Complete directions for thirty-four projects ranging in difficulty are also included starting with fast and fun weekend projects such as a colorful tote or adorable baby booties and advancing to more complicated projects such as a hooded cable-knit sweater for a child or a striped button-up jacket.
