Using Loom Extenders

Would you like to weave rugs, placemats, bags, and more? Just add the loom extenders to your Knitting Board or All-n-One Loom and turn it into a weaving loom. Check out the video that explains the process….

  • I’ve never seen that technique before for making the edges. That is really clever.

  • The pattern in the booklet that came with the loom extenders is checkered in some areas; I’m really confused on how to do that. Whenever I try, it just ends up being a solid color instead of alternating like a checkerboard. Any tips?

  • Hi Kalie, are you using different color yarns? The base yarn should be different from the one that you are weaving with. You can even use several different weaving yarns. Just drop the one you don’t want to show and continue with the color of choice. Then you can use both for a few rows and get all kinds of different looks.

  • Yeah I am using different colors; I don’t know what I’m doing wrong. Any chance of another video coming out?

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.

the Tadpole-the baby. Newest member of knitting boards.

Our newest member of the knitting board family is only 6″ long and 1.5″ wide.  It’s fine gauge which means the intarsia designs really come out looking great!  The spacing between the pins is 5/16″ like the small gauge boards, but the 2 rows of pins are only 1″ apart.  It’s so much fun to work with because you don’t even need to put it down-just turn your hand around to hook over the 2 sides.  Portable??  Oh, yes, it can fit into your smaller handbags, and go with you everywhere.  Fun projects?  It comes with 7 easy projects just to get you going and more are coming to the free library every week.  So, if you’re looking for a great gift for yourself, or maybe thinking ahead for the holidays, check out this cute little package. 

It comes with a new! knit hook and pattern booklet with illustrated instructions and the 7 starter projects.  Lots of Fun!

  • I got mine this week. This is a very cute little knitting board. Gotta start playing with it.
    The pattern book that comes with it is very nice too!
    Looking forward more fun patterns!

  • This is my first knitting board and I love it! However, I am having trouble understanding the instructions for Benny Bear. Need more pictures!

  • Hi, I know this is a late response, but are you still having problems? If so, please let me know and I will work with you. Maybe a faster resolve would be on the discussion group under patterns. I check that daily. thanks, Pat

  • This is my first knitting board too. I find the directions frustrating and uninformative. I’m understanding more from the website, but it does not have a pattern for the bear, which is absolutely impossible to understand from the book.

  • Hi, you are the second person to say that the Bear project is not clear in the instructions. I will go thru it by 12-12-09 and try to make things better. So sorry for the frustration. If you want to email me direct at pat@knittingboard.com and let me know if you have specific questions, we can work together with it. I knit him and wrote the pattern and would very much appreciate knowing how to make it better. thanks, Pat

  • I’ve had my tadpole for about 2 weeks now and I so love it! there are no wing nuts or any other metal pieces to get caught in your knitting and it knits so nice and tight,this is probably my favorite one and the one I’ll be taking on the plane with me in the summer.

  • One more thing… this little knitting board is so great,the tight knit and no metal pieces other than the needles, could there possibly be more of its kind in bigger sizes? not that I need more knitting boards, I have 3, but if there were… yeah I’d probably cave and buy some more! :)

  • Couple weeks ago I bought the cute little Tadpole kniting board to learn on and carry when traveling. I’ve made 1 scarf and working on the 2nd.
    I have since ordered the 18″ knitting board for larger projects.
    I’m really enjoying the experience of working with the Tadpole and know I will enjoy the 18″ knitting board just as much, maybe even more.
    Sincerely,
    Kathleen

  • Hello,
    I have made scarves with the tadpole knitting board, but would like to make a benny bear. Is there any explanation as to how to fil the bear with the poly-fil, since the stitches are so tight and there is now space how do we do this? Please help, i’m trying to make a benny bear for a close friend who is about to have her baby shower… thank you

  • Hi. I am trying to make two benny bears for my nieces. I am not sure if I am missing a page (my booklet is a bit beat up) or just not understanding the instructions. After making the main body, are there directions for making the head? I have arms, bottoms of feet, scarf, ears and then the sewing and finishing and filling but nothing about the head. Is the booklet somewhere online or instructions somewhere I could find and read online?

  • I cannot figure out how to do the head either. Right now I have a headless benny bear. I phoned the company and asked for further instructions but so far have not heard back. This is a shower gift and would prefer NOT to have to start a different project at this point.

  • I just got the tadpole knitting board a few days ago. I would love to make the benny bear for my god daughters birthday. I’m having a really hard time understanding the directions. I am fairly new to loom knitting and I do better with someone showing me how things work. Is there a video that shows how to make this bear?

    And to those wondering about the head….you just cinch off a section of the main body…just above the arms. :)

  • Hello. I just bought this tadpole kit with the knitting board and I’m having lots if trouble with the Benny Bear also. (I’m only 16) I want to make this for a couple of little ones and an incoming one here soon, but I just don’t understand knitting language. ( Joke(: ) I’m very new to knitting and the knitting board, so I don’t really know what most of the words/sentences actually mean. Hopefully I’ll get to make a dozen Benny Bears before I know it! Can you pretty please put a video tutorial of the whole thing up on here? (Sorry if I’m asking for to much) I just got really excited when I saw this kit and had to get it! Thank you!!!!

  • Yes I just got the Tadpolpe, I am wanting to make the Benny Bear…I am not understanding the instructions very well, especially when the instructions is telling me to make another loop on the 9th pin I am understanding this as I have to use another skein of yarn….please help me make sense of this…..Thwnk you
