Very good. Baby loom peg count was missing, but I watched so many other videos, so I used a 31 peg loom.

I loved this class. I am ready to purchase materials at the arts and crafts store to loom knit a baby hat and cocoon. There are lots of babies and although I don't have children, these will be nice to make, to give back, and make great gifts for families. Great project!
