When you get your first set of Knifty Knitter looms, it's confusing. Here is the information you will need to get started. First, to knit with the Knifty Knitter looms you will begin by tying a slip knot. Hook this slip knot around the anchor peg on the side of the loom. Now that you have your yarn in place, you will begin to wrap the loom. There are various ways to wrap the Knifty Knitter loom, but the first time we will begin with one of the most basic wraps, called the e-wrap. To do this begin by grasping the yarn between your fingers and loop it around each peg. As you do this, you are forming a cursive letter "e" with the top of the e toward the outside of the loom. Continue ewrapping until all the pegs are wrapped. When you are finished, draw your yarn across the top of the first peg you wrapped. Use your Knifty Knitter hook to knit off, by pulling the loop around the peg outward and off the peg. The yarn you had stretched across the peg should remain on it. This is a basic knit stitch on the Knifty Knitter loom.
