Our Spool Knitting Kit comes with everything your child needs to get started with this classic activity. It has a wood spool with four secure staples for wrapping yarn around. These staples are nicely rounded on top, no pokies! There is a knitting needle with an eye at one end for weaving in the ends of the yarn and a point at the other end for knitting the yarn. There are great picture instructions to get you started with ideas for advanced spool knitters. There is a nice bit of yarn for getting your eager knitter started. Once this runs out, Spool Knitting is a great activity for using up bits and pieces of yarn from other projects. This is a great way to make knitted ropes to use for jump ropes, horse reigns, and many other uses. Recommended for children over 5 years old with supervision. Great gift for a 5-7 year old. Made by Harrisville Designs in the U.S.A.
