When I made the loomed red beanie I loomed a flower to decorate it. It finished the beanie off and made it look really nice. That flower was made just using the inner pegs or the flower would have swamped the baby beanie. A flower loom can be handy to make decorations for the things you make and if you layer the colours you will get some interesting effects. This video explains it all very clearly. You can crochet through the loops of the flowers to make an edge which can then turn all the flowers into a cushion cover, jacket, blanket or something else you want to make. You can different sorts of flower looms. This is the one I prefer but often it is a case of what you get used to. I prefer this one because I can use the two sizes of pegs together or separately.
