NEW…’His and Her’ Sock Loom Set

 

“OH look, honey, we can have matching socks”….

Brand new to the sock loom collection!  His & Her Sock Looms are here!

Now available, stationary fine gauge sock looms, with plastic pegs. The pegs are engineered specifically for ease of use, lifting yarn over pegs, and ‘staying put’ in the loom.

There are 2 looms in the set, the purple loom creates a large adult size sock, 64 pegs (HIS) and the orange loom creates an average adult size sock, 56 pegs (HERS).  In sizing, we refer to the width of the sock, or size of the leg opening. The length of the sock, and foot can be knit as long as desired.

No more counting pegs. Easy and superb for beginners!

 

The sock loom set includes full ‘step by step’ instructions for knitting socks in both sizes, adult and adult- large. DK weight sock yarn is recommended for best results.  Worsted #4 sock yarn can be used for a tighter knit, thicker sock.

Check out our new basic sock patterns!  Bethany Dailey’s  Keepin’ It Simple Socks, is great for men or for anyone with a larger width- knit with the purple loom.

For average adult size (width), use the orange loom, and knit the new Comfy Footies! designed by Isela Phelps.

For quick reference, check out the Heel & Toe video. Work your sock while following along with the video.

…We hope you enjoy! Happy Knitting!

  • Congrats on the new products. It says fine gauge, but doesn’t mention an actual number so what’s the p2p gauge on these sock looms?

  • These beautiful new sock looms are listed as Fine Gauge. Does that mean the measurement is 5/16″?

  • Love the idea of the looms themselves. Hate the (hetero)sexist stereotype your marketing is feeding. Human beings really don’t have that much sexual dimorphism. In general, males and females share most of the size range. Many men need smaller, many women need larger. The ‘his and her’s’ is appealing to the vision of the big strong man and dainty little woman that ends up causing a lot of harm for all of the people, and couples, that don’t fit that. It is a slap at the woman who needs a larger sock with all the implied message that she is not feminine,, that she is coarse and masculine. While the man (or even boy) who has to use the ‘girl loom’… well, obviously I’m not going to repeat here the slurs about men and boys who are considered feminine.

    And those are just the basic binary issues. The second you look outside of those, it gets worse.

    I love that you are doing two sizes of looms. People come in enough sizes, I’d love even more.
    But I’d particularly love it if you didn’t define my gender and the gender of everyone I’m making socks for by the size of their feet

  • I have had eperiance this type of knitting. the tenches is very good.

  • Hi, You have brought up a good evaluation. Thank you for your thoughts, and we will remember this in the future. Thanks

  • Yes, that is correct. 5/16″ from peg2peg.

  • Hi, Thanks for asking. The looms are 5/16″ from center of peg to center of peg.

  • i recently ordered these looms, always wanted to make socks,but found instructions to difficult to follow, now will try these and see what happens …

    happy sock making to me…

  • I love the new products! Thank you, as for me, I LOVE the his and her label! My husband was happy that he was going to get a pair of socks! Haha. I read about your company and I applaud you and your success. Keep up the good work! Thank you again : )

  • I amiss very excited by the new looms that are coming out . With the Oval shape I hope to be able to do toe-up socks more.

  • I am very excited by the new looms that are coming out . With the Oval shape I hope to be able to do toe-up socks more.

  • Thanks Carol,we appreciate all feedback. So are you working on your husbands socks?

  • I’m looking forward to trying it out, I think having oval loom will help, even though I knot and crochet my socks I do love loom sock knitting

  • I can’t wait to get these looms and think I will have to order today! I have all of the KB adjustable sock looms and like them well enough but these new ones sound so much easier to use, especially since they don’t need adjusting. I also have to say that I don’t have the same mindset as a previous poster and can’t say that those kind of thoughts ever entered my mind. My husband has small feet and would probably need one made on the “Hers” and I highly doubt that he will feel very feminine. People that I make things for aren’t going to care, or feel defined by, which loom I use. I love the “His and Her” name!

  • I have a question I saw online that 5/16 might be considered a SG = Small Gauge (5/16?,). So should I look for sock yarns that are “2” weight and not fingering weight 1? Maybe to use my sock stash combine 2 strands of weight 1 together. Or do I need baby weight or 3 light worsted or sport yarn for this loom? Sorry for so many questions. ….
    Well can’t wait to try it out already thinking of what yarns I may have. Thanks for any help.

  • I love all the AKB looms! I look fw to getting these. I also love thinking of them as his and hers. It makes it easy for me quickly recognize which one I need to grab, especially when I am in a hurry. Keep up the good work!!!

  • I totally agree with Amber – I think you should have used large/medium/small.

  • I got it today and started a sock. I LOVE IT!!! No more awkward end pegs so easy to use. Love the light weight of it to. It’s very easy to use on my hands. I have few different looms This is my favorite sock loom by far!! I????????????I may have to order second set so I can make two socks at a time. Thank you Pat for very fast shipping and coupon.

  • Oops my emojis went as question marks not happy faces

  • I have a question about one of the patterns for this loom. The Comfy Footies pattern. It says the cuff and leg should measure 7 inches. Is that correct for a footie sock?
    I love the feel of these looms and am anxious to try them out! Thanks for your help.

  • I just ordered my set and am looking forward to making socks! I ordered the Premium round loom set and the shipping was so quick! Love it! I have pretty much all of the other KB looms and I couldn’t be happier!! I think these new sock looms will be fun to take on little trips, so easy to tuck into a bag and go! Thanks KB looms!!!

  • Hi Sally, The designer feels that you are looking at a different pattern. There is no mention of 7″ for these footies. Please be sure you have downloaded the footies pattern. We will also check to be sure we have the links correct.

  • Will all of your new looms eventually be available in stores? I have purchased all of your other knitting looms either at Hobby Lobby or Joanna craft stores.

  • Hi Mary, It takes awhile for the store chains to order and receive and then get them into the planned stores. Just keep checking with your local stores, but realize that the chains choose which of their stores will receive each product. So some locations may have a product and another location may not. Also, large chains plan in advance, so it may take awhile.

  • With the double knitting, if connected as a hat, is it ‘trapped’ and limited to the 8 inch height? I’m thinking of the magic scarf type, you knit for say three feet in the round. I see if you double knit fkat it can come out and flow somehow but in the round, the legs limit flow-correct?
    I ordered mine so when it gets here I will experiment and enjoy all the new patterns.
    I love how it rotates.

  • Hi Jeannette,
    I agree that this is the first impression, but the hat scrunches and you can make it as deep as desired. There’s a lot of room for the round item as the space in the leg area is large. Once it is complete, you just slid it off the top of the loom.

  • I have just about all your looms. love them all but use s loom most, and sock looms

Sunshine Shawl

I have always wanted a larger scale of the Inara Scarf and after many years, that dream has become a reality. Featuring the drop stitch with different lengths of elongated stitches, the shawl is perfect for those brisk morning or evening walks. The Sunshine Shawl has a diamond design worked with yarn overs on a background of garter stitch. The background of garter stitch makes the design pop even more. A yarn with wool (or natural fiber) content is recommended as the shawl needs to be blocked to show the stitches at its best!

Enjoy!

  • Will there be a video of this stitch? :)

  • As of right now, there are no plans for a video. The stitch breakdown is included and it is a fairly easy process.

  • What Cast On did you use? Is there one that will match the basic bind off? It’s absolutely a beautiful pattern! I can’t wait to make it!

  • It used the ewrap cast on and it was tightened after the item was completed.

Make another Garter Stitch Band as instructed above, except, instead of working the button hole opening row as instructed, simply “knit to the end of the row).

Assembly

Position the narrower edge of the Garter stitch bands around the bind off edge of the shawl. Using the mattress stitch, seam the Garter Stitch bands to each side of the shawl.

Secure button to the Garter Stitch Band that does not have a button hole opening (be sure to line up the button hole opening to the button).

Tips: if you want to make the shawl longer: simply follow Rows 1-23 as stated. Work more rows of Row 24 and Row 25, where this symbol ^ is located in the pattern.

If making it longer, the Garter Stitch Bands must be longer too. Count the Garter stitch ridges on the shawl (the edge stitches created a garter stitch edge), and match the number of garter stitch ridges on the shawl onto the Garter Stitch Band.

  • I don’t understand what are garter stitch ridges
    Where the pattern says work78 garter stitch ridges and th directions on how to make it longer
    Can you clarify this for me in some way?

  • Also there is a *K2tog*;rep from*
    Should there be a yo there?

  • Ginny, what number is this row?

  • Ginny,
    At the beginning of the pattern, it has a description of how to create a garter stitch ridge:
    Row 1: k to end of row.
    Row 2: p to end of row.
    These two rows create 1 garter stitch ridge.

    The Bands at the front of the Wrap are created in Garter Stitch. What you are doing is basically the following:
    Row 1 and all odd rows until you reach row 155: k to end of row.
    Row 2 and all even rows until you reach row 156: p to end of row.
    The above instructions should give you 78 garter stitch ridges.

    Hope the above helps.

  • The row is after it say to work 78 garter stitch rows
    Also question why does this have to be done with garter stitch bands?

  • No, that row does not have YO. You are decreasing from 20 sts to 10 sts.

    Why the garter stitch bands? That is the way I designed it. I wanted the front to have these bands. Also, the width of the Wrap is too small without them.

  • Thank you so much i am new to loom knitting
    Now I feel ready to start
    The shawl is gorgeous
    I just hope I can make it
    Thanks for all the help

  • Sorry me again
    I need to understand the CDD-centered double decrease

    The explanation indicates
    Over 3 pegs
    Move loop from peg 1 to peg 2
    Take yarn behind peg 1 and 2
    Knit peg 3
    Move loop from peg 3 to peg 2
    Lift bottommost 2 loops off peg 2

    The pattern has
    Yo,CDD,yo
    Question-When you lift buttommost 2 loops off peg (leaving 1 stitch still on peg 2 -the stitch brought over from peg 3 correct?)
    Then do you go ack to peg 1 and put yarn over then knit peg 2 then yarn over peg 3 then continue with rest of pattern

    Is there avideo on this or can there be one?

  • How do you do a CDD?

  • Ginny, the description for a CDD is above, by the abbreviations.

  • I think I have a video of the CDD but not with the YO next to it.

    This is the way I would do it:
    3 2 1

    Ewrap the peg to the right of peg 1.
    Move loop from peg 1 to peg 2. Take yarn behind peg 2, knit peg 3.
    Move loop from peg 3 over to peg 2. Lift bottommost loops off peg 2.
    Move the ewrap you placed on the peg to the right of peg 1 to the empty peg 1. Working yarn is at peg 2. Ewrap peg 3.

    You should have an ewrap on peg 1, one loop on peg 2, ewrap on peg 3.

    Hope the above helps.

  • Lift buttommost loom off peg 2
    I need clarification
    Does that mean knit them over peg leaving 1 loop on peg?
    Or
    Does it mean take top loop off take 2 loops off and return top loop on to peg?
    Or
    Does it mean something else?
    Thank you once again for your help

  • You lift them off, also known as knitting over, leaving only 1 loop on the peg. Simply go to the peg, lift the bottommost two loops up and off the peg. If you are on Facebook, we have a FB group where we are discussing this wrap and we have file on the stitch breakdown. https://www.facebook.com/groups/1278218605557139/

  • Beautiful, beautiful pattern and thanks for sharing. love love

  • What method of cast on do you use.

  • Hello,
    Could you tell me what the best way to make this wider would be? My mother in law is a much bigger woman than the girl modeling this cape, but she fell in love with it.
    Any help is appreciated

  • This might sound silly-but where do you start the heart pattern?

  • The heart stitch pattern starts on row 11 of the pattern.

  • Mary, I used the ewrap cast on. I use the tightening technique to tighten the cast on when I have completed the project.

  • Thank you!

  • Hi Deb,

    The easiest way to widen it would be to create two pieces of the main panel, the area that says Cast on 167 sts, but instead of casting on 167 sts, cast on 161 sts, omitting the first 3 sts and the last 3 sts that are done in garter stitch. Create two of those panels, seam them together. Create the garter stitch bands as instructed. This will create an item that is twice as wide.

  • Thank you!

  • Thank you so much for the video Isela
    It makes things clearer for a newbie
    Much thanks

  • I have braindead, Could you please explain this.

    Row 11: k3, *k4, ssk, yo, k4; rep from * to last 4 sts, k4.

    Just the rep from *to last 4 sts, k4

    I have skip around and just picked out one that is used a lot.

    Thanks! appreciate it.

  • Which way do you cast on? Right to Left (Clockwise), or Left to Righ(Counter Clockwise)?

  • Is there any way you could do a video on the following section of the pattern, I don’ understand it, thanks so much,

  • I’ll try to explain it in another way.

    You will need a stitch holder (a safety pin works) for this method. Let’s say you are doing the shawlette.

    Assume you are on the first section. You have 4 pegs on the left, (pegs 18, 17, 16, and 15) peg 15 has the YO (an extra ewrap, correct?

    Place the YO (the ewrap) on a stitch holder and leave it there.

    Move the loop on peg 18 over to its neighbor empty peg to the left, peg 19. You have just moved one of the stitches over one spot.

    Move loop from peg 17 to the peg vacated previously (peg 18).

    Repeat the same process with loop on peg 16, (moving it over to peg 17).

    Repeat the same process with loop on peg 15( move it to peg 16) Peg 15 is empty.

    Place the ewrap that is in the stitch holder on peg 15.

  • Hi Raelyn,
    Cast on from left to right so that the first row is from Right to Left.
