    1. You will need a loom that is similar in gauge as to the knitting loom I used. You will also need it to have the same amount of pegs, if you are going to follow the pattern as written. The loom I used has a gauge of 5/8″ and it is made by KB Looms. You can find it at http://www.kblooms.com and it is called the Premium Chunky Round Loom Set.
