What’s is a Wonder Knitter?
The Clover Wonder Knitter is an updated version of an ancient tool! Sometimes called spool knitting, corking, tomboy knitting, or French knitting, the tools were called knitting spools, knitting nancys, or French knitters. The oldest members of the loom family, these have a history dating back over 400 years – some think back to Roman times!
Essentially, a knitting spool is a hand-sized tube with pegs at the top. So you use the pegs as a knitting loom, working them off with a small hook or your fingers. As you work round after round, you have an icord tube forming, that goes right down the handle of the spool.
How to Use the Clover Wonder Knitter
So Clover took this simple idea and made it better!
There are two disks – one with 3 pegs to make 1/2 inch icords, and one with 6 pegs to make 1 inch tubes. These disks rotate on the handle with a flick of the thumb, for easier knitting. This lines the yarn up for knitting – no hand winding after the first round.
The yarn goes into the yarn holder on the side to load it onto the pegs in just the right place, and it doubles as a handy holder so it doesn’t get lost when it’s not in use. Finally, an ergonomic, sparkly handle is extra fun!
I could try to explain it in words, but this video is better! There are lots of tips and tricks in here too – Clover has lots of great videos on their YouTube to help you learn to use their tools. And excellent written instructions are always included too!
And then it’s time to get creative! Simple bracelets and necklaces for kids in bright yarns, delicate wire jewelry – with beads or without, stuffed animals, elevated gift wrapping, drawstrings, the beginning of an art piece… your imagination is the limit! You could even use it to turn thin yarn into jumbo tube yarn to crochet or knit with!
Here are some free patterns I found on Yarnspirations that show some more fun ideas for your Wonder Knitter icord! The Peppermint Coaster and Flower patterns are no longer available, but I think you can see how easy it would be with this tool. Patterns are available for the Mini Keychain Purses and Heart Bouquet!
