If you’ve ever wanted to try your hand at board loom knitting, here is all the information you’ll need to get started. Knitting boards differ from looms in that the material created is thicker and double sided. They have become a popular tool of crafters, since they are easy to use and projects knit up quickly. Pat and Kim Novak, entrepreneurs and the designers behind the Authentic Knitting Board company, share their expertise on how to use their popular boards. Core techniques are described in detail and shown in step-by-step, close-up photography, along with easy-to-follow directions. All aspects of using the board are covered---from the basics to more advanced techniques---so whether you’re just learning to cast on, working basic stitches, or looking for solid advice on how to shape and join sleeves or add finishing details such as pom-poms or a drawstring, you’ll find everything you need to get started and more.

Complete directions for thirty-four projects ranging in difficulty, are also included, starting with fast and fun weekend projects, such as a colorful tote or adorable baby booties, and advancing to more complicated projects such as a hooded cable-knit sweater for a child or a striped button-up jacket for yourself.
