No experience necessary! Re-using ordinary items from your recycling bin, make your own tubular knitting device, based on the version popular in 18th century Europe. Then you are set for knitting your own snake of yarn the way cords, ropes, and chains are created. Knit it long to wear like a necklace, headband, armband, or belt, or pet leash!
Working with a small number of participants at a time, means time needed will vary.
Best for participants 8 years and older.
Younger folks might find ROPE BRAIDING or FINGER KNITTING a good alternative to SPOOL KNITTING as it is related and in some ways, simpler.
70-90 minutes, depending on group size and age.
