Are these looms easy to learn? I am thinking of getting some for my 11 year old grandaughter. What would be a good beginner set?

I would buy her the 4 loom round set...you can use them and get your % off coupon.

They are pretty simple...you can use the basic stitch and get more intricate with other stitches and patterns as you go.

Last Wednesday evening, my 7-year-old sat next to me on the couch and asked if I would teach her to loom knit. I had planned on doing that the week after Christmas when she was still on holiday break, but I went on and showed her that night. While we watched TV together, she made a hat for her doll using a round loom. It was a simple project- rolled brim, gathered cast off, and only e-wrapping, but she was thrilled and her doll has been wearing it ever since.

I think this is perfect for kids. You can learn tons of new stitches and do complicated things, but you can also do simple, quick projects! It is a good craft that will grow with them.

Both my boy and girl love them and have made their own hats. Scarves take a little more time but hats go quick.
