9:00 AM

Knitting on a spool continues to grow in popularity! Here is a tutorial on how to knit using Style 2. 

Style 2 - This style is yields a design with a tighter knit. This style is also featured in the book Show Your Colors.

1. String the wire down through the center of the knitting spool and use your hand to hold the tail down.

2. Notice that I numbered each peg on the spool in a counter clockwise fashion. Wrap the wire around Peg 1 from left to right (clockwise).
