Spool Knitting

What is spool knitting?

For generations, people have been spool knitting. To spool knit, a spool with pegs around the top is used to produce a narrow knitted cord. Spool knitters usually have four or five pegs. Spool knitting and loom knitting are a similar knitting technique. However, in loom knitting the loom has many, many pegs.

Who can spool knit?

This fun, easy craft is ideal for kids of all ages, from 4 to 99. Spool knitting is a way to teach kids how to knit without knitting needles. It will be easier for a child to understand knitting with needles after mastering spool knitting.
Personally, I enjoy spool knitting while watch television since I do not have to concentrate because of the repetitive knitting technique.

What are the other names for spool knitting?

Spool knitting is also known as corking, Knitting Nancy, French knitter and Bizzy Lizzy.

What can you make with a spool knitter?

As a young girl, I enjoyed spool knitting but I did not know what to do with the long knitted cords. That has inspired me to create some fun and useful items using the spool knitter.
