Loom FAQs: Is It Garter, Rib, or Seed Stitch?

February 2017 edition of Loom FAQs is up and ready for reading!

This month I explain the differences between the Garter, Rib, and Seed stitches.  All 3 involve knit and purl stitches.  But all 3 are different.

I also explain the difference between the true knit and purl stitches on the knitting loom.

All with pictures.

You can find the article here on the KB blog.

Loom FAQs Articles on Authentic Knitting Board Blog

First of all, I would like to apologize for neglecting my blog.  Starting now I will be sharing more on what I am doing with my loom knitting and crochet projects along with anything new I may venture into as well in regards to fiber arts.

Over 2 years now, I have been writing a monthly article for Authentic Knitting Board called Loom FAQs.  Each article answers frequently asked questions that I see in the loom knitting groups in social media.

Some of the topics that have already been covered are converting, felting, blocking, types of knit stitch, gauge, selvages, socks, decreasing, copyright and trademark, along with calculating amount of yarn, peg counts, and more.

Just when I think I am running out of topics for my Loom FAQs article on the KB blog, several new topics pop up out of nowhere.

Loom FAQs is published on the 3rd Monday of each month. The 3rd Monday will be here before we know it along with a new article chock full of useful loom knitting information.

Until then click here to find all of the Loom FAQs articles that have already been published.

Until next time!
