Introducing…Loom Holder Connectors!

Now any loom can rotate on an elevated base!

The Loom Holder Connectors convert the ‘Rotating’ Double Knit Loom base into a Universal Loom Holder.

Kit includes: (3) loom holder connectors and (6) fabric bands (3 smaller bands are attached to the holders.  To attach wider looms, replace the small bands with the larger ones.)

 

 

How it works…

The loom holder consists of a leg connector, and a ‘tray’. Each holder connector snaps onto a leg of the rotating base.  The ‘tray’ or, top part of the connector,  holds the loom. The trays rotate around to adjust to each loom.  This allows the holders to work with various loom sizes.  The connectors are very strong and sturdy.

 

 

 

 

To begin set up, simply evaluate your loom size, and insert the 3 legs into the rotating base using either the outer, or the inner openings on base. If you are setting up a large round loom, the outer leg locations work best, and smaller looms use the inner leg locations.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rotate the trays to best position to fit your particular loom. Now take your loom and set on top of the 3 trays. Turn and adjust the trays so that they are balanced with the rotating base. Once loom is placed comfortably on trays, simply wrap the fabric bands around loom and secure to bottom of tray.  The bands will hook over one of the knobs, located on bottom of the tray. You can use your fingers or knit hook to attach bands.

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you are working with a larger loom with wider base, for example, the afghan loom, remove the small fabric bands and replace with the larger fabric bands that come in the kit.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The connectors work to hold many loom shapes and sizes.

  • WOW! This is just wonderful news. Thank you to the folks at Knitting Board!

  • OMG!!! I had asked you if you could make a rotating loom with 36pegs, and if not, could you make something rotating to hold looms. You answered back by saying to watch for something new at the end of the year… And you did it. Actually you made 2 new items, but you made the rotating loom bigger, not smaller. But, unfortunately, I cant purchase both items because they are a little to pricy. I will not use the original loom that comes with the rotating base, so it would be a waste to purchase it. All in all, it is a terrific new concept.

  • Can the looms that are made for the rotating loom, be put on this one? I Have the orginal and just bought the new one Without the base). Was wondering if it can be put on this so that I can have 2 projects going at the same time.

  • This sounds great, what is the price of the Loom Holder connectors.? I already have the rotating double knit loom……..Jettie

  • I think that is awesome

  • I like it! I have enjoyed all the looms I have purchased over the years. This is the best idea so far. As soon as Christmas is over, I’m purchasing this!

  • Wow this is awesome. Looks like it will come in handy for all KB loooms

  • Brilliant! This will help me continue to work a a blanket using the S KB loom?

  • I have made a similar set up with some blocks on my KB rotating loom so I could use my KB orange loom, and it worked, but I seriously love what your team came up with, and would love to give these a try? Thanks to your team for always coming up with great ideas?

  • Where is the add to cart? Can’t find the option to buy….

  • This is an awesome idea! When will it be available?

  • Interesting

  • Hi
    Can I use the rotating connectors on a loops and thread s loom ?

  • Is there a round loom I can make a hat with Chunky wool.(6). Also
    is the small loom on the Rotating Loom the hat size for a baby?

    Thank you kindly

    Fran

  • Do you have a bigger floor version?
    I have a set of the table top connectors.

  • Will you be selling the loom holder and connectors separately? I do not need anymore looms, but I would really love to have the holder and connectors and would purchase them immediately if they became available. Buying more looms would just be a waste of money for me as I have all I need or want. Just the holder and connectors would be wonderful.

INSTRUCTIONS

Cast on 64 sts in color A, prepare to work in the round.

Rnd 26-80 (or 4.5”): In color B, k 64 sts.

Heel

Join color C and use color C for heel. Do not cut color B.

Place peg markers on pegs 1 and 32. Pegs 1-32 are all the pegs that will be worked for the heel. Pegs 12-21 are the pegs that will be left unwrapped during the w&t process.

Refer to Short-row heel/toe instructions at the end of the pattern for specific details.

Foot

Work appropriate length for foot size (5.5” for men’s 10.5 US size foot) in the following pattern (sample used 70 rnds);

For the first round, * knit in color C from peg 1 to 32. Next, knit pegs 64 to 33 in color B. You will now have two yarn strands between pegs 32 and 33.
