  • Can this be made in one piece? So no sewing parts

  • Can this be made as one piece.

  • Yes. You will need a knitting loom that has twice the amount of pegs as called for in the pattern.

  • Hi Gin, yes, you can. You will need a knitting loom that has twice the amount of pegs as called for in the pattern. You will still need to create the bottom piece separately though as that goes in the opposite direction of the hood.

  • Hi Isela, love this hood, and would love to make it. But l don’t have the all in one loom. Can it be made on any other loom?

  • Kathy, you can make it on any other loom that is similar gauge to the All-n-One loom. You will need the same amount of pegs too.
