        I made this cowl for my mother-in-law for her birthday:
        I used the largest loom that came in the 4-pack.  For me, it was the yellow large/extra large loom.  I used the Michael's brand yarn, #5, and used 2 strands together to make it extra warn.
        I also made another cowl with the same loom:
        Row 1:  Knit
        Row 2:  Purl
        Row 3:  Knit
        Row 4:  Purl
        then I e-wrapped until it was the length I wanted, then the last 4 rows, I did knit 1 row, purl 1 row, knit 1 row, purl 1 row, so it didn't have a top and bottom, but could be worn either way.  I used the Red Heart Boutique Magical, and it is very pretty yarn.
        The tablet covers:  I have done knit 1 row, purl 1 row, over and over, then a whip stitch/blanket stitch/mattress stick to sew up the edges.  I am sorry, I cannot remember the terminology.  I am not a seamtress.  I also made one using just knit stitch over and over.  I used the purple loom for both of those.  One I used a mohair yarn that I bought at Tuesday Morning, so I am thinking of lining it with felt to make it a bit sturdier. 
        My next project is a minion tablet cover for my son.  He is getting a tablet for Christmas from grandma, and he loves Despicable Me.  The link is:
        Good Luck!!!

        I've made hats and scarves on the looms, but I've also made sweaters, blankets, gloves, mittens, shawls, snowmen, turtles, owls, teddy bears . . . the list could go on and on.  There are so many things that you can make with the looms.  Now, I only needle knit and crochet a tiny bit, so I don't have anything like that to compare to, but there are soooo many things that you can make on the looms.  I've been looming for 10 years.  It's the only crafty thing that I do, but I love it.  I even teach looming to kids through our homeschool co-op.

        Have a great day!

        You said that you had Bulky thread?  I don't think you will need to double the thread.  I have made many baby hats and ever a few bigger hats.  I even tried to make an envelope hat.  was very disappointed in it.  I really do like the loom knitting.  but I do feel confined to a small list of things I can make.  (hat, scarf, flowers)  What I have found very useful is going to the you tube and checking out things.  Good luck and have a good holiday.

        I joined this group some time ago but hadn't posted or tried much looming.  It's cold here now on the Northern east coast and  my hairs a mess...yea I know you needed that information lol......so I wanted to make some fast cover up the hair hats.  My head is small so I don't know what size loom to make. I have a set of KK round looms and the hat size purple one.  The purple one seems to be way to big, and the green one in the set is about right.  I bought a yarn that is bulky sized at #6.......do I need to double the yarn with a yarn that weight?  I have been online doing lots of research but still have doubts........I hate the idea of having to rip anything I do out, but I may not have a choice.  Thanks so much for any help.
