If you're not sure how a stitch is made, there are stitch instructions posted on our blog here: http://moxieandmel.wordpress.com/looming-basics/  Wink  Keep in mind that I'm not a knitter, so the 'pattern' is about as basic as you can get!

You will now have holes on each side of your loom.
R15: Reach in and pull up completed portion. Using the loops on the edge of the holes, place one loop on each of the empty pegs.
R16: Ewrap All Pegs

Continue to Ewrap all pegs to desired length. Tie off by using yarn needle to thread through each loop, then remove the loops from the loom and pull the yarn tight.

Use the large crochet hook to chain a tie off for the sock. Thread through cuff.

It's really easy when you're used to the looms, isn't it? They go really quickly too- and make great stocking stuffers!

I'm so confused. I started doing this, then I got to the part where you skip the first twelve pegs and braid stitch the rest to the end.
Do you wrap the extra yarn around the outside of the pegs, or do you have it go across the middle of the loom?
Am I missing something?
Thanks in advance. Tongue

So then you have a piece of yarn going across the diameter of the loom?
