Spool-Knit Apple Coaster

Lion Brand« Lion® Cotton


Exact gauge is not essential to this project.


See our instructions on how to make a spool knitter and how to use a spool knitter. Even very young children can use this simple tool.

With 2 strands of A, and leaving a long end, make 18 inches (46 cm) of cord. Change to a single strand of B and make 1 more inch (2.5 cm) of cord. Tie off, cut ends and pull ends into the cord to hide.

Beginning with the A end , coil the cord into a circle. Thread end of yarn into the needle and use this to sew the coil in place as you go. Tie off end and weave in. Note: If you want to change the angle at which the stem attaches to the apple, you may want to take a few small, invisible stitches to position it as you wish. If you want to make an indentation at the bottom as on a real apple, simply stitch invisibly through the center of the apple. Tie off all ends and weave in.

If desired, use B to embroider a few leaves.

Every effort has been made to produce accurate and complete instructions. We cannot be responsible for variance of individual knitters or crocheters, human error, or typographical mistakes.
