The Knifty Knitter comes with 4 round looms.  I wondered if the smallest one could make a sock.  I have narrow feet, so I doubted it was going to work for me, but I gave it a shot anyway.  I used Red Heart Super Saver Seagrass yarn.

The shoe is about what you'd call an A width.  This gives you an idea how big this sock was.

I used 3 strands of yarn at once in an attempt to make it thick enough to make a mega-thick winter sock.  As you can see, this wasn’t going to work for me, it was still too big – but all is not lost.  It may be just the thing to make quick socks for those who have a foot width of E to EEE.  If you used wool yarn, you can also make a 1 strand sock with it and felt it to your size for a super warm sock.

If I fold it up, it can now be a preemie hat, or a hat for a doll.  I believe with 3 strands, it is too thick for a regular baby sized hat.
