INSTRUCTIONS

Note:
Nifty little spool knitter is known by many names; some people call it a Knitting Spool, while others know it as a Corker, Knitting Knobby, Knitting Nancy or Spool Knitter.
Bookmark or Pillow Applique:Weight (such as clothespin or clamp) and darning needle.
Pillow Applique:12" [30.5 cm] square pillow. Sewing thread, needle and straight pins. Tracing paper.
Put the end of the yarn through the hole and attach clothespin or clamp.
Wrap yarn around first peg.
Working counterclockwise, wrap around next 3 pegs. Now yarn is wrapped once around all 4 pegs.
Continue working around first to fourth pegs, wrapping yarn in the same manner once more above first loops.
With darning needle, pick up bottom loop from first peg...
... and Slip over top loop.
Repeat for remaining 3 pegs. Pull the bottom string every other peg to keep your knitting even and to prevent the loops from popping off the pegs.
Repeat steps 4 to 6 to create knitted cord. Make a cord 7" [18 cm] long for Bookmark or 50" [127 cm] long for Pillow Applique.
To secure end, when you have reached desired length: Take the last loop you made the peg and put it on the next peg to the left. Pick up the bottom loop and slip it off as before. Repeat until there is one loop left on last peg. Cut yarn, leaving end approximately 8" [20.5 cm] long. Thread end through darning needle and thread through last loop. Pull tightly. Leave enough yarn at both ends to attach tassel.
Tassel for Bookmark (make 2): Cut a piece of cardboard 3" [7.5 cm] wide. Wind yarn around cardboard 15 times.
Cut yarn leaving a long end and thread end through a needle. Slip needle through all loops and tie tightly. Cut through remaining loops and trim ends evenly.
Remove cardboard and wind yarn tightly around loops 1/2" [1 cm] below fold.
Fasten securely. Trim tassel evenly. Using long ends of cord, attach tassels to each end of cord. Bookmark is ready. Happy reading.
Applique Pillow: Enlarge template to measure approximately 8" [20.5 cm] diameter. Using tracing paper, transfer onto front of pillow. Pin end of cord to center of "Flower". Position all length of cord, tracing "Flower" line. Secure with straight pins. With sewing needle, sew cord in position. If you have remaining length of cord, coil at center of "Flower".
