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.
