Finding Center to Center Peg Distance

The following is Part I of II in categorizing the looms by the actual center to center peg distance.  We have started with mass-produced looms, that are readily available in most areas. This list is not all inclusive of all the looms on the market, but are a representation of my loom collection. We have detailed how we came to the C2C Peg Distance below. The majority of the looms on this part of the list are classified as Large Gauge Knitting Looms which means they have a C2C Peg Distance of 5/8″ and up.

Numbering the Pegs: We assumed that the first peg to the left of the anchor peg was peg 1 and the next peg was peg 2. When no anchor peg was available we randomly chose a peg 1.

The Measuring Process

Step 1: Measured the distance from the outside of peg 1 to the outside of peg 2.
Step 2: Measured the distance from the right of peg 1 to the left side of peg 1.
Step 3: The difference of Step 1 from Step 2 gives you the center to center peg distance.

These are the measurements in inches that we came up measuring each loom in my loom inventory. The handcrafted looms were measured only for peg size, since handcrafted looms are assumed to have a variable of peg distance throughout the loom. We have listed the handcrafted looms manufacturers claimed center to center peg distance when it was offered.
