INSTRUCTIONS

KNITTED CORD

Step 1. Draw an outline of your desired shape on a piece of A4 paper. Keep the outline simple. Lie a tape measure along the outline to measure the length of cord required to make the silhouette.

Step 2. Cut a piece of floristry wire to this length. Using the Pure Wool 8ply and following the instructions contained in the Automatic French Knitter pack, set up the French Knitter and turn the handle to knit 6 rows (about 12 turns of the handle).

Step 3. Place the cut length of floristry wire in the top opening of the French Knitter into the centre of the knitted tube. Holding the wire in place, turn the handle so the cord is knitted around the wire. The wire will start feeding into the French Knitter.

Step 4. Continue knitting with the machine until the wire is completely covered. Turn the handle about 4 times to knit a couple of extra rows.

Step 5.Follow the Automatic French Knitters included instructions to bind off.

TO MAKE UP

Sew in the ends. Lay the knitted cord over the drawn silhouette and manipulate the cord into shape. If making a circular shape such as a pineapple, sew the 2 ends together to form a loop.
