  1. I just bought the Zippy. How many Zippies do I need to attach to make a full size blanket. Thank You!

  2. Hi Susie, what size of blanket? You say full size, as in a full size bed? Every peg provides about 1 inch of work, (depending on the stitch and the yarn weight). If you want a blanket that is about 30 inches wide, you will need at least 30 pegs (minimum).

  3. I just bought Zippy Looms but didn’t know that connectors are separate. I don’t see on the list connectors for Zippy Looms. Will you be selling them? Thanks!

  4. Steven, I bought 2 zippy looms and the connectors come with the looms. Its a small , flat yellow piece of plastic that slides into each end of the loom. You get one connector with each loom.
