  • I would love to know how many Zippy corners would I need for the gray cowl on the right that’s included in the patterns that come with the corners? http://www.knittingboard.com/zippy-corners/

    Thank you!

  • Hi, 4 corners.

  • Thanks!!! :-)

  • I just started using your zippy looms. The only drawback I see so far is that I have to be really careful not to snag the yarn on the cute little smilelyface on the first peg. I guess I will jist have to be extra careful. It slows me down, but I have to deal with it. Otherwise, I can’t wait to try some of the different patterns you offer. Thanks for a great product.

  • Love the new zippy loom. Its fun to use thanks to the cute smiley face. I love the ease of which projects can be made and that I can use either the hook or my fingers. The price is right and the possibilities are endless!

  • I love looming its my sanity! Would love to win a zippy loom

  • Can’t wait to use the Zippy. Love the thick scarf,

  • OMG I love my Zippy looms.. Would love 2 more.

  • I like the Zippy looms but is Savannah, GA it is to hot for me to use the thicker yarns what ever I make I have to send North to my family members that have lots of cold and snow so I have just pushed my Zippy to the side for the moment. I would like to see more ideas to use my Zippy Loom with lighter weight yarn

  • I covered another looms collar, but I’m sure it will be better zippy loom.

  • Love Zippy cannot wait to make many more projects.

  • Also I shared on FB

  • Just ordered Zippies for my grand daughters AND myself! Can’t wait to receive them, also I just taught them how to use the other looms and they love it! Their ages are 13 and 11

  • Oh boy! you will not know how much I love the new Zippy. Everything I make I donate to charity. I do not sell anything, I make just to let you know. I have 7 Zippy looms. I kinda changed the looms to fit my project I was going to do. So, I pictured the loom with my project which I was making a scarf. I need 400 scarves by fall. They have to go with all the hat’s that I already made.

  • Posted on Twitter. I love using the knitting looms here in the United States. They make the work go so fast. You don’t have to be concerned about rows becoming uneven, etc.

    Thank you,
    Patti Bublat

  • I have 2 zippy looms just as of the other day. Im already falling in love with them. Post shared on facebook. ?

  • These zippies are so much fun to use! Most everything I make is given away. Sharing this on Facebook.

  • I purchased 3 of the Zippy looms and I love them!

  • I Ordered 2 zippy looms today. What’s the best yarn to use?

  • How would you make a ruffle scarf using either Red Heart Sashay or Starbella yarn? All loom directions I’ve seen prevously use a rectangle loom so you can move the loop from the front to the back peg.

All-n-One Knitting Loom Launch!

All one one 2 jpg

The All-n-One knitting loom by the Authentic Knitting Board company.

We have all been waiting for the much anticipated release of this new knitting loom by the KnittingBoard.com company. I have had the pleasure to work and create with this knitting loom for the past two months.

The moment it arrived, I rushed to open the box and was immediately in love with the knitting loom. Hundreds of design possibilies came to mind. It is a knitting loom that can go from making a little itty bitty baby bootie to a shawl, even a blanket!

Down to the knitty gritty of the loom. Gauge: it is small gauge, pegs are at 3/8″ apart. The knitting loom consists of 2 long rails (48 pegs on Kids and all n one loom 028each rail), 2 sliders–with 5 pegs each slider, for a total peg configuration of 106 pegs. It also comes with two spacers to use the knitting loom as a knitting board. The pegs are made out of nylon, giving the user a very smooth peg to slide your knitting tool on. Speaking of the peg–it is grooved to facilitate knitting and the pegs also have a small cap at the top to prevent the yarn from accidentaly sliding off the peg. The knitting loom itself is made of hardwood giving you a solid, strong loom. The wood has been varnished to provide you with a smooth, glide-your-hands-on-me knitting loom.

All-n-One loom will include the following:

  • 2 long rails (48 pegs each)
  • 2 sliders (5 pegs each)
  • 2 spacers
  • Knitting tool
  • Booklet with basic instructions and patterns.

The knitting loom is a delight to work on. It is so smooth to the touch and since it is made out of Allnone-2wood, it feels warm the more you use it. The pegs are smooth but not so smooth as to make the yarn pop off the top. They have enough grab for the yarn to stay on but yet smooth enough so the knitting tool slides easily on it. Adjusting it was a breeze too. All you have to do is loosen the wing nuts at the ends and slide the slider up/down, tighten the wing nut and you are good to go.

And now that I told you all about the knitting loom, let me show you what I have created on it so far.

AllnOneProjects1

 

Three of the patterns are available through the KnittingBoard.com website, in the free pattern section, the Lacy Shawl and the Cowl. The purple hat instructions come with the knitting loom.  Look for another pattern (the slouchy hat in the center) coming shortly.

I have used DK weight yarn (the gray hat that my daughter NyNy is modeling and it gives me an impressive 11 sts per 2 in. Worsted weight, I had 9.5 sts per 2 inches.

Here are some quick numbers for your use:

Hats with Worsted Weight yarn

Adult Men: 88 pegs

Women S/M/L: 76/80/84 pegs

Youth: 72

Children: 64

Toddlers: 60

Baby: 54

As I play more with the knitting loom, I will be posting peg numbers for socks and other basic items.  Coming next…the Last Minute Slouchy Hat!

  • I want one! Great looking loom.

  • With the hat pattern that’s included with the loom, there are instructions for k1tog that require moving the 5 peg piece as the “round” decreases…. this is very confusing as a beginner! Any chance there is a video somewhere that might explain it better?

Loom Extender Projects

RUGS, all kinds of rugs, they are so easy and quick to make with the loom extenders. This is a rug made by weaving FABRIC STRIPS using the 28″ Knitting Board and the 10″ loom extenders. 2 X 3.5

Fabric strips make great rugs and home decor. This rug was made with 4 woven sections. You simply start with 4 yards of jersey knit fabric in 2 colors, cut them into 1″ strips with the grain of the material. Then weave the strips across the loom, wrapping 2 pins at a time and with one peg empty in between. Use the same color of fabric  until you are ready for the stripe, then switch colors

If you use the 10″ Knitting Board, 10″ loom extenders you can make a rug by creating squares. This rug was made with 12 squares.

Loom extender projects

Here are a few ideas using the loom extender.  The wall hanging was created by our Knitting Board group moderator Sue Kreitzer, this was her fist loom extender project. Margaret Conroy did the beautiful striped pieces. Both of you, nice work.
