A loom is a device used to weave cloth and tapestry. The basic purpose of any loom is to hold the warp threads under tension to facilitate the interweaving of the weft threads. The precise shape of the loom and its mechanics may vary, but the basic function is the same.

Loom knitting is a great way for people who haven't mastered or struggle with knitting needles to experience the joys of creating their own knit fabrics. What better way to start using that knitting loom than to knit yourself, your bff, your mom (or any other relative) this super cute trendy and easy ear warmer?

Looms can also be used for knitting. There are various types of looms for knitting, such as a circular loom or a line loom, that create different effects when used with different knitting styles. Looms can be used to make scarves, hats, of even stuffed animals.
