I bought the 5 pin with the idea that I could use either as a 3 or 5 pin. Very nice quality wood. The shape makes it easier to grip. And I saved the links to how to use it so I could refer to them in the future. However, I would have liked to have included a little more written instruction with the product. That said, I felt this product was well worth purchasing and would recommend to others.
A timeless tradition that many will recall learning as a child has returned. The knitting spool you may have used with yarn or thread as a youngster has been reimagined for wire weaving. Try knitting using Soft Flex© Craft Wire, Soft Flex© Beading Wire as well as thread, cord, yarn, leather, etc. You can add beads. You can weave multiple and different materials together and create unique, one-of-a-kind, bracelets and necklaces. Not only are there three different styles of knitting spools available (3-pin, 4-pin and 5-pin), but there are several different ways to knit on each spool.
Note: The knitting spool works with copper or sterling silver wire, gauges 24-28. Any of our 4 diameters of beading wire can be knitted.
