To make your own knitting loom, you need a pen or pencil that can leave marks on ring material. You also need a ring, rubber and tape.
- Find a ring to use for the base
For a ring, you can use a wooden circle, a packing tube or even a needlepoint hoop. Make sure that the ring material is durable because this is what can make your loom durable as well.
- Measure the peg placement
Use a measuring tape to measure the peg placement. The number of pegs can determine the size of your finished project. This is why if you need to knit a larger item, you have to use more pegs. With a pen or pencil, mark the place where you wish to place each peg.
- Secure the pegs to the ring
Make sure that you secure the pegs to the ring. For this task, you need a hammer or duct tape. For a wooden ring, you can use the hammer. For cardboard or plastic materials, you need tape.
- Test your loom
Before beginning your project, test the strength of your knitting loom. You can do this by knitting a small piece of material. Check if the pegs are staying in place.
