Our Mushroom Knitting Spool comes a knitting needle and instructions. You supply the yarn and the finger power! This is a great way to make knitted ropes to use for jump ropes, horse reigns, and many other crafts. It is fun for children to take left over yarn from a knitter they know and create something useful. Mushroom measures 3-1/2" tall and 1-3/4" in diameter at widest point. The hole that the knitting goes down through the mushroom in is 3/8" in diameter. The knitting needle is 4" long. Recommended for children over 5 years old with supervision. Great gift for a 5-7 year old. Made in Germany.
