This is a wonderful introductory knitting kit. Called a Knitting Nancy (or Ned), Knitting Spool, Knitting Knobby, or what we prefer, Knitting Tower, this wooden cylinder will enable children to get right into the art of knitting up tubes which can be used in many different ways: a strap to hold a doll in a stroller, a headband or scrunchie, friendship bracelet, a band to tie on a silk or a rope to hoist up a heavy basket or coil them to make hot pads and place mats. Or insert pipe cleaners through a couple and join them together to make a bendable animal. Vary the gauge knit by using either the 4 or 6 'towers' side. Includes 20 yards of 100% USA wool yarn (color varies).
