Picture of Making a Small Knitting Loom
This is a simple knitting loom I created out of wire for making cord cozies. A cord cozy is used by some to keep small pets from chewing on cords. I just think they look neat.

Step 1: Materials

No pictures for this step!

What you need is:
- 2 needle nose pliers
- 16 gauge wire
- A ruler

To knit with it later you will need:
- Some yarn
- A small crochet hook

human pets chew cords as well. The kind that are several years old and have a lust for destruction. I will definitely make use of this one!
I have a little brother named Silas(he is cute!)he is 6 monthts old and I will make some for my dad.But for now,I just make snakes!

you can also use a latch hook for knitting. If you use stiff cardboard, you can make one that way also

Looks like they updated there site. Not sure if this is the same video, but it should help http://www.decoraccentsinc.com/category_s/95.htm
Nice work on the cord cover, this is definitely a 5/5 project. If you've ever purchased these from a home store or decorator source, you've most likely experienced: the lengths are never a perfect fit, the colors are the most common standardized ones and the manufacturing is shoddy. Btw awesome first Instructable (faved till further use)

Looks neat. Which pets tend to chew your cords?
Cats may chew cords also... I am on my 5th pair of headsets due to this. Thank you for the Instructable, it is going to be put to good use. I will foil the feline cord bandits.

rabbits and chinchillas like chewing on cords. I lost my hamster once in my apartment and found her chewing on a playstation cable. =)

My dog did, but stopped when he got zapped a couple of times. He is still alive-that's good.

Sure wish I had seen this before I went out and spent $10 on a spool knitter. What I like best about this is that you can make them in several sizes. I'm thinking that my earbuds could use a cozy like this to keep them from getting tangled in my bag. :-)
Do your cords get cold?

Well, the wind chill here is -2 right now. So.. yes. =)
That is such a cool idea. And looking at the comment below, your dog got zapped? Good, he's still alive. Very good. Now he can chew on yarn, maybe you can give it a scent or something! No. He might eat it. Nevermind. :-)
