  1. Thank you, Isela, for this adorable pattern that my granddaughter will love! If you recommend an AIO loom and are wrapping it in such a way that it mimics a large-gauge loom, is it safe to assume that if I have a large-gauge loom with a sufficient number of pegs that I could use that instead? I don’t have the AIO.

    Thanks again!

  2. It looks like it would work on a regular-gauge loom. 2 pegs = 1 peg, so I don’t see why not. Wouldn’t hurt to try 🙂

  3. We should do this as a loom along on Facebook. I would love to make his but i am not sure it would come out as it is suppose to.

  4. Can anyone help me out with the afghan loom? I have started over several times, but the knit is so tight that I am afraid the pegs will break. What am I doing wronge? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

  5. Knit one peg at a time. After casting on, knit one peg at a time, wrapping the entire loom and then lifting the stitches can make the stitches really tight. Also, you may want to try a yarn that has a natural fiber content, like wool, so it has some inherent elasticity and has a bit more give.
