This French knitting spool from Seedling is the perfect gift for crafty kids. This kit contains: Knitting spool and wool. All you need for a busy, creative child.
French knitting otherwise known as tomboy or corking is a traditional way to knit which uses a spool and nails to produce a cylindrical tube of fabric. It is a perfect way to teach kids the basic principals of Knitting. There are a number of things that can be made from the tube of fabric including rugs, hats, dolls clothes etc. Let your kids use their imagination and come up with there own design. Historically it was used to make reins for a horses bridle - wow!
Seedling is all about encouraging children to make and explore their creativity. Developing basic skills to encourage creative thinking and problem solving. What I love about Seedling is their kits are not 'paint by numbers' style where you follow a prescribed formula. All of the kits allow for children to think and make something unique and extraordinary. To watch an interactive video on how to knit using a spool watch HERE
