24 peg round knitting loom

With this 24 peg round knitting loom I was able to create small dolls and the Rag doll. It was easy to knit the stitches was also neat. Since it is in round I did not have to stitch the side seams.

An ariel view . This will shoe the circumference of the circle

A closer view that will show you how the pegs are placed

The gap in the peg allows you to move the yarn freely.

12 double peg daisy flower loom

12 double peg daisy flower loom is used for small projects. Basically flowers are done in this loom. As the gap - distance between the pegs are apart the knit weave does not come close/ tight. Hence when I knitted the waist band , I realised the stitches are big and they create holes between the stitches. But I loved doing on this as it is easy to wind the yarns.

A closer view. See there are huge gaps between the pegs

6 peg knitting loom

AS requested by my friends sharing the knitting looms I use for knitting. With this loom I have created many a necklaces/snake. The stitches are tight and there is evenness.

Manga - Mango necklace

In South India the mango necklace is part of jewellary that every house has. Hence with the help of some embelishments have created this mango necklace. First I stringed the pieces into a plastic wire and knitted along with the yarn. After knitting the first row - shifted the stitches to a 10 size double pointed needles and knitted ithe necklace on a round. Hence you can see the finish is lit bit neat.

Ani the rag doll

I created this with the help of 24 peg roung daisy wheel or knitting loom. The entire body was knitted on the round wheel knitting loom.

This was gifted to my friends daughter who had come from Abu Dhabi for a vacation. The doll measures 16 inches long from head to toe

Yellow bangle

I was very eager to do a bangle. I browsed in the net- and realised that every one gave instructions to take a metal or plastic bangle and then wind the yarn tightly across the ring. I got so frustrated and finally created a bangle. The design is my own creations.This will fit a small doll or a new born baby.
