Our Innovative Ultimate Oval Loom Knitting Set breaks the mold of a traditional knitting loom. At first glance, you might ask a simple question:
If you've ever held a traditional straight loom, you know spacing in the center of the loom can be tight. The all-new oval shape is easy to hold and use, since it is just deep enough to allow plenty of room in the center to work.
Oval vs. Straight and Round Looms
When compared to the straight loom, the oval loom is easier to use due to the room in the center to work.
When comparing an oval loom and a round loom with the same number of pegs, it's easier to hold the oval loom.
The peg spacing is ½” making it a small gauge loom perfect for lighter weight yarns. A single strand of #3 light weight yarn and #4 medium weight yarns can be used.
