  • Hi there
    I’ve bought and I’m using the fabulous Sock Loom! And I wondered if someone could help me please?!

    At the start of the Heel & Toe Part 2 DVD, it tells me to continue wrapping until I have 5x pegs wrapped, 5x unwrapped and 5x pegs wrapped so I will then have two thirds of the pegs wrapped.

    So my question is should I wrap 5x pegs at each end of my ‘short row method’ or do I need to wrap two thirds of the number of pegs that I am currently using?

    I hope this makes sense.

    Thanks in advance!

    Genevieve

  • Yep, that makes sense. You will work with the amount of pegs that are being used. so the 2/3 rule will change with each sock based on the amount of pegs used. Does that make sense? pat
