I am left handed

I just purchased a Learn to Mini Loom Kit. I am left handed so would I follow the instructions give (I assume for right handers) or would I reverse the direction?

Left-hander advice from a leftie NEW
by: Anonymous

I am also left=handed.

I just reversed the instructions, did them "mirror image" and it works just fine. It helps if you have really good spatial skills as some of the things like binding off can get a little complicated if you are double-knitting.

One of these days I was going to post a youtube video for left-handed knitters but... I have a lot of half-chewed projects lying all over my house :-)

left handed directions NEW
by: Jen Tavernier

Hi There,

I believe you simply reverse them, (if you are looming in reverse.) There are some youtube vids on loom knitting+lefties, but you can also go to Facebook, search loom groups, (there are several!)

For any questions and help, plus lots of crazy loomers, right, left, and ambi!

Some of the stitches, and flat panels, have one going back and forth, so you might find you are more ambi than you think! (you will find yourself getting comfortable.)

Off the top of my head, look for Good Knit kisses, knifty knitter loom group, simply intertwined, and check out blogs, (you can find them by searching loom knitting+left handed directions.

Hope this helps!

Jen
