  4. I can't find the knifty knitter looms anywhere. I found the boye but the clips don't really fit. Is there anyway to make these booties without the clip? I love them. Thank you.

    1. They have been discontinued it seems. Went researching what I could find. You can get the knifty knitter long looms on ebay. I also looked to see if Boye had anything similar to clips. Nothing. You can do the pattern without the clips it just makes it harder. You would have to lift up every loop and move it to get the decrease. It makes it a pain. Sorry about not having much info that could help.

    2. Michael's loops n threads long loom set works just as well n clips work with these looms too.

  6. I'm back and I found that the clip sort of works on the boye ones. I made one bootie but mine look a lot bigger and "fluffier" then yours. What weight of yarn did u use. I used red heart soft which is a 4 but heavier then some but it's so soft. Thanks again.
