  • i emailed before and you asked me what would be nice . Sorry about not answering right away. It just that my daughter is a full grown woman and the hat was just to tight for comfort. It could be a little bigger as it would not fit a person very well if they were a larger person the size is great for a smaller person. There should be some way that there could be a larger size on the outside same style loom maybe the out side rim bigger? With the two same rings on the inside that exist now? I have made several things on this loom and love it. I tried to use the inside ring by itself and could not because there were no groves on the outside of the pegs. The size of the loom on the inside ring would be about the right size for a new born or a premie, Too bad. Thank you for your concern about this. Valerie Vaughan

  • Hi Valerie,
    I’m not sure who who talked to before regarding a hat pattern. It sounds like you are referring to the ‘Rotating’ Double Knit Loom. If so what hat are you having troubles with?

  • Will there ever be a video on the his and hers sock looms
