Spool Knit a Sweater!

This is for all the non-knitters out there!  Even if you don't knit, you can make your own sweaters .... on your spool knitter!

All you need for this project is your spool knitter (loom), 3-5 skeins of wool, and some scissors.

If you're new here and have never done spool knitting before, go to the tutorials tab up top for loads of posts on how to make your own knitter and what to do with it...it's EASY!

To make today's project, check out the video below:

                          

That's it!  So easy right?!?!  Have fun.  I can't wait to see what all of you cool creative people out there come up with.


Have you ever knit something to wear?  Did it turn out?  Any knitting disasters out there?  Leave a comment and tell us all about your knitting adventures~

Cute! Love the color. I'm working on a knitted scarf right now (with needles), cuz it seemed pretty safe and fast for the short time I've got left to get it done! :-)

My Aunt taught me all my sewing and handiwork skills: embroidery, crochet, knitting the works. If stitches were too long in my embroidery - they were to be pulled out. So...knitting and the tension thing were beyond me. It took me a year to knit a long sleeved,v-neck sweater. I sewed it together as I was taught etc. When I proudly displayed it to my Aunt, her reply without blinking; "THROW IT OUT!". I'd put a sleeve in backwards, neck wasn't the same on both sides and so on. I haven't knit since.
But, I still sew up a storm, love to embroider and hesitate to crochet.
haha... Cant win em' all.
Cheers from Oshawa Ontario.

You are just too adorable in that sweater. I am jealous of your knitting abilities! Thanks for linking up to my Linky Party!

I've tried knitting with needles and just can't work it. I really want to try loom knitting. I had no idea you could do a sweater with a loom! Thanks for sharing.

I'd love if you came and linked up at my Show & Tell party this week. http://www.gingerlymade.com/2012/12/show-and-tell-4.html

I made a knitted sweater for my brother about 40 odd years ago. It was the first sweater that I ever knitted. I came out way too big. We all had a good laugh over that. I haven't knitted since. I do crochet now.

Thanks.

An entire sweater on the loom is impressive. This makes me want to give my looms another try. I couldn't get the hang of them and gave up, but this is a reason to pick them up again. Thanks for linking to Craftastic Monday at Sew Can Do:)

I can't believe you were able to knit a whole sweater on a spool knitter - that's fab. And can I just say, I think you are so cute(In a totally not-creepy kind of way):) Thanks for the inspiration!

This will be my first project making this sweater. Do I use the regular knit stitch that you demonstrated for the scarf?
