Step 2: Making a Spool Knitting Loom

Making a loom for spool knitting is easy and fast.  Plus, given that a homemade spool knitting loom can work just as well as a commercially available one, there is no reason you should not make your own.
First, cut the big sides off all five paper clips; save these and discard the small ends.  Take one of these U's and tape it to one end of the pipe so that the rounded part of the U protrudes between 1/4 and 3/8 inch above the top of the tube.  Then, tape the remaining four U's to the same end of the tube attempting to space them as evenly as possible.

This is so cool!! I had a wooden cotton reel with nails in to KNIT my strings. About six months ago I bought a plastic loom for my friend's little girl. What nice memories this brings back.
Togle is cute, I had a loom like that when I was a kid, it was store bought though.
