Just received these and already I feel leary about their value. Using the smallest loom to make a baby's hat, I can't believe the large size of the weave makes a usable item. Anyone have experience with these looms? What do you do about it? I forgot to mention I am using two worsted wool yarns together.

People use them all the time for baby hats. There are tons of videos on uTube and several web-sites that have info and how-to's. Also if you go to the Home heading at the top of this forum's page, you will find an section entirely dedicated to loom knitting.

The weave tightens up as it relaxes. Also you can wrap your pegs 3 times to start(with one strand) knit off the bottom stitch over the 2 top ones. When you are ready for the 2nd row you just have to add 1 stitch per peg, continue knitting off this way. You can also do 4 wraps and knit off 2 over 2. This makes a tighter weave... hope this helps.

Thank you for your help, ladies. I'm using all info sent and hope education on the subject will make me less sceptical of looming.

We did some lovely ones with Homespun last year, you could try mixing it with your wool for fluffiness, or baby cloud. Good Luck Florence :)
