Easy loom knit hello kitty bow + how to use a Knifty Knitter
This is both a tutorial for the Hello Kitty bow AND how to use a Knifty Knitter.

This can work on ANY size loom. I used the smallest Knifty Knitter loom (the peach one), but for tinier bows i use the bloom-knitting loom. All of the steps apply, but you have to turn the bottom out the top of the loom much sooner.
