7/16" 128 peg 4"x 26" Rectangular Afghan Loom
This new rectangular loom is 26" long and 4 inches wide. It is meant to be used for single rake stitches and creates a larger afghan than the large round afghan. The wider open helps to create less of s crease than on the long oval/panel looms.
Loom Details: 26x4x3, 128 pegs.
*This gauge works well with worsted weight yarn and creates a slightly tighter weave than our 1/2" gauge looms
The wide spacing between the “rails” of the loom allows the project to smoothly progress down as project grows. The pegs are very smooth and it’s easy to put on and take off the stitches. I particularly appreciate how easy it is to knit around the end pegs, spacing is nice and even. I sit in my recliner while knitting. A plus for me is that the loom rests very comfortably on my chair arms which prevents my arms from get overly tired. I’ve completed a lapghan as a test project and now knitting a larger project. Workmanship is excellent!
The loom looks cool! Can’t wait to try it. Is there a chart to match the looms to patterns for it?
I knitted laces and this gauge and the size of the loom is just so perfect to knit small blankets, wraps and cowls. Specially cowls are knitted in one circle with one of its edges all scalloped.
I have not done a complete project on the loom yet but have done a couple of test runs. It is the perfect length for each end to rest securely on the arms of my recliner chair. I really like it so far and am looking forward to starting a project on it soon. I think it is my new favorite but I say that everytime I get a new CinDWood loom!
