I have recently become interested in knitting with looms and found
your group. My husband and I are 18th Century reenactors-he builds
colonial and 'camp' furniture and I portray as seamstress/mantua
maker. I have heard the term loom knitting used in the 18th century
and have also seen reference to this as far back as the 16th Century
and was wondering if anyone knew anything about the history of this
form of knitting or could direct me in my search for documentation. I
would like to be able to learn and demonstrate this at events as
another form of clothing manufacture that was used in the colonies.
My husband is also interested in making the looms, but we need much
more information!!! Any info that you can pass my way will be

I use the second loom. Stack them inside each other
with the smallest in the middle. Count smallest as first
then the next loom works for young children. I like to make
roll brim hats,as they have give and can be rolled up or
down to custom fit. Have fun looming.

like 3 to 6 years old. What size round loom do I need. I
