This loom has a lot of great qualities and some issues. Pros: Best part is that not only do you get 4 loom sizes but you can choose to have a large or small gauge loom. It’s made of a light weight plastic and a narrow design that make it great for transport. The pieces are interchangeable so you don’t need to have a lot of different pieces to create any of the four sizes. The little tips (the head of the peg) are rounded which helps when pulling the loops off your peg if you’re needing to do purling or the true knit stitch. Cons: Unlike other KB looms this one is a Very lightweight plastic. Funny that this feature is good and bad. But the loom feels a bit flimsy. In fact you should use some caution while you knit if you’re a tight knitter. I almost had a heart attack when I dropped it getting out of the box. Also, I didn’t like the hook. You’re better off buying the regular Authentic Knitting Board Ergonomic Knit Hook that is sold separately. It’s actually the BEST loom hook on the market. OVERALL: I like it a lot. I now have 3. Hope that helps… denise Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply 7 of 7 people found the following review helpful Love the knitting boared brand., March 25, 2015 By debra Anchondo – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Authentic Knitting Board Hat Loom (Misc.) It took some getting used to. I like the fact that I don’t have to use two skeins of yarn. I’ve used the Hobby Lobby circular looms for a long while and there sizeing is pretty spot on. With this loom the medium size seems to always be a bit two big even for the average size head. Experimenting with diffirent stitches helps a lot with that problem. I still love this product and I will continue to order from Knitting Board there products are well made and I really like that.

(Colorado) – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Authentic Knitting Board Hat Loom (Misc.) This is my first loom of this type so I’m unsure if other looms of this interchangeable type are like this, so I’ll describe what was new to me and what I found a little difficult for those that are new to this type of loom too. There’s an inset type of button that’s flush along the underside of the loom that you push to help release the inserts that you put together to make the various sizes. It’s a little hard to push, but I find that if you push and gently wiggle the inserts slightly it helps to break it down into it’s components. The pegs that aren’t removable are colored white, and the pegs which you can add to make the small gauge are colored gray, so it helps as a little bit of contrast. The removable gray pegs can be pretty rough on your fingers to insert and pull out tho. What I used to help with this was a flat leather cord that was about as wide as the peg. To insert the peg I put the peg in as far as I could then letting the leather hang over both sides of the peg I put one side of the leather into each hand and I gently pulled till the peg snapped into the loom. To remove the peg I wrapped and twisted the leather cord around the peg and pulled. I had a spool of this so not everyone may have this, but it’s similar to this product (LolliBeads (TM) 3mm Flat Genuine Leather Cord Braiding String Dark Brown Espresso (5 Yards)). But what helped I think was that it gripped, so possibly using something rubberized and strong might help to pull out the pegs. I found it a little slow going doing the large gauge as I had to put my finger behind each of the plastic pegs as I was working on the project so I wouldn’t accidentally snap it or break it, but it seems to only feel brittle when using 2 yarns as one. Overall tho I really do like this loom! I really love it when you use it for small gauge projects, it’s perfect for using 1 yarn instead of having to use 2 yarns as one. For me I’m keeping this as a small gauge loom and using other circle looms as the large gauge. What surprised me was how easy the yarn slides off when using a hook even though I’m a tight knitter. So it was a great little surprise since it helped my projects feel like they went faster plus helped ease my hands from hurting since I didn’t have to grip so hard to pull the yarn over the peg. The pegs are a bit rounded at the top but it’s not notched or grooved like the Boye brand circle looms, which I’m thankful for as the Boye pegs are a little more time consuming for me.
