Løken was capped 36 times for Norway national football team. Løken is a master of engineering and is currently also working part-time as sports commentator for Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation.
As a youth Karl Petter Løken played for Sarpsborg FK and Askim IF. When he came to Trondheim in 1985 to study at Norwegian Institute of Technology he phoned Rosenborg and asked if he could come and play for the club, and the answer was yes. Løken was a natural allrounder, but played primarily on the right side as defender or striker. Løken spent twelve seasons at Rosenborg, where he won the league seven times and the cup four times. He was the top scorer in Tippeligaen in 1991 and was capped 36 times for Norway. He scored one goal for Norway, in a friendly against Austria 31. May 1989. He was in the 1994 World Cup squad, as an unused substitute.
In 1997 Løken was transferred to Stabæk, where he played two seasons before retiring, briefly coaching a Stabæk youth team thereafter. While at Rosenborg, Løken attended the Norwegian Institute of Technology, where he got a Master's degree in chemical engineering. He now works for Lundin Petroleum, and is also a sports commentator for NRK.
