Product Review: Worldwide launch of D. A. Looms Infinity Loom II 60″ (Decor Accents)
GoodKnit Kisses unveils the NEW Infinity II S Shaped loom together with Mikey at the Crochet Crowd, allfreeknitting.com & favecrafts.com. This item is released on May 1st, 2011. GIVEAWAY SOON! There will be a giveaway to win an Infinity II loom very soon so keep a sharp watch!
I’m thrilled to have had an early loom to test and review for viewers to get an idea of what this fabulous loom can do for you! In my video I show you how to cast on this S shaped loom and get you well on your way to making a 5 foot wide blanket. Knit till your heart’s content! The compact loom is 16.5″ x 10″, perfect for sitting on your lap to make any flat panel in regular gauge from a dishcloth to a 60″ afghan, it’s small size is deceptive. It’s high quality construction & nylon pegs, with a finer gauge (smaller holes in your design) than the Knifty Knitter or other plastic looms from big box stores (like Walmart) to get you a tighter or closer knit item. Your needle knitting friends are not going to know the difference!

You need to know that this loom makes a flat panel for single knit items. To step into a double knit item look to the Infinity line. Also this loom is RG or Regular Gauge. There a also Extra Small Gauge (ESG) for an even tighter knit. Use yarn that has a bit of a stretch or you need to watch your tension to not over tighten. This is a high quality loom and pegs to match but do be careful.
This is a great NEXT STEP for the now serious loom knitter. Make your friends baby blankets with this or your mom an afghan or lap-ghan for Christmas. You will not have to sew together any panels and for that alone it is worth the extra cash and wait period for this custom made quality loom.
I do cover more in my video preview as well as show the best cast on method to get you started. So please watch here and then if you like it could you please click to subscribe and comment on the video itself within YouTube. I’d really appreciate the support. Once I reach 500 viewers I’ll be giving away one of my boucle shawls! Please watch the video below!

Hi there l was wondering if you can cast on without a hook

I'm just getting started with looming and really want to make a blanket. What is the easiest way to start casting on, I struggle with the crochet method.

How long does it take you to knit a blanket on the S loom?
Sunday 28th of September 2014
It really depends on how much time commitment you have. Large panel afghans take a large amount of time. It took me several months to knit my first one. However I was working full time and could only knit a few rows at a time or on weekends between family things.
