Making the Stitches Tighter?

by Kaitlin Pace

I am just learning how to knit hats with a loom but I find the gaps between each stitch...from peg to peg is quite large. How do you reduce the distance between the stitches? HELP?!

Making the Stitches Tighter?

Hello there!

Once beginning looming, with an e-wrap stitch, you soon find that the gauge can be closed by using 2 strands of reg (#4) yarn, or a chunky/bulky (#5 or 6) yarn. BUT!

The knifty knitter looms (circular), and now the Boye looms, are a wider "gauge" (more space between pegs.) there are different gauge looms, But! there are also different and smaller stitches that will tighten up also -
