The pegs can be easily broken. I doubt that it can be used for something heavier than a scarf. I was careful with it and it broke in the middle of my scarf project. Also the sides of the looms are caving in. Since Knifty Knitters are hard to find peoole have been getting this brand. Don’t. Suck it up and buy a better brand so that you will have a great experience knitting. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comments (4) Reply 29 of 31 people found the following review helpful Good loom set for the price, January 1, 2013 By nanu – This review is from: Boye Long Loom Set- (Misc.) This set differs from the Knifty Knitter and has some very positive points, there are some points that I am not super jazzed about also, but at it’s price point im cool with it. 1. The pegs come out, as in they are removable. As in if you don’t press em in really tight they might slip out while knitting. This is different then the knifty Knitter I have in that the pegs in that loom are not removable. In fact I bought this to replace it because a peg broke (got stepped on) on my KK loom. You can remove pegs etc which is a nice feature also the loom opens up into two pieces which is cool if you want to panel knit or move a large ball of working yarn from inside to outside. 2. The overall texture is smother and slipperier then the KK, I happen to like this, some people probably won’t. the KK brand looms are more textured, the heads are bigger on KK pegs also. I knit loosely and quickly so the small heads speed up my process. For some this could be frustrating. 3. As an earlier reviewer stated you can’t really select a gauge for this type of loom (can’t on it’s major competitors either) and everything could be done on the largest (orange) loom if you wanted. I find that a smaller loom is easier to work with and typically select the smallest loom possible for my project. Again at the price this set is pretty fun. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply 24 of 28 people found the following review helpful Outgrown in a Week?!?, January 1, 2012 By Keli C. Barnhouse – This review is from: Boye Long Loom Set- (Misc.) I begged my father for this loom “set” for Christmas. Here it is New Year’s Day and I’m already searching for my next loom acquisition and deciding whether or not I need to confess to him. 😮 My main complaints:1) It is impossible to alter the stitch gauge. Boye seemed to have had this option in mind, but unfortunately they only allowed one side to be adjustable! Additionally, all four (4) pieces have the exact same inside measurement.2) Because of the above static measurement, you’re basically receiving – storing and paying for – three (3) “extra” pieces of plastic. I came to this conclusion as it states in the provided instructions that you only need to wrap the loops to the desired length (meaning that you can simply knit 8 3/4″ on the 27 1/2″ loom).3) The placement of the “anchor: (aka: the “slip stitch catch”) is extremely awkward! Why isn’t it just placed to the left of the starting peg instead of on the opposite side? Oh wait, It can workout correctly, but the instructions are written to knit left to right instead of right to left 🙁 I’m on my way to the internet to check out: Kiss Looms & the Authentic Knitting Board Good luck in your decision making and shopping!😀 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comments (3) Reply Leave a comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
