Beautiful job. And love the butterfly touch.
I did miles of this when I was a young girl...wooden spool with four nails and I was a star in my own mind! Great job and great nostalgia for me...
Thank you for the reminder. Enjoy going through old posts. I called it knobby knitting
This is so lovely--I don't know what french knitting is but you sure found a beautiful way of doing this project. Something for me to Google I guess.
Thank you .. years ago we nailed 4 nails in a wooden cotton reel and used wool and a small knitting needle to make miles of rope like length.. cant remember what we used it for thiugh
Placemats, chair mats, small rugs. My grandfather made my knitting spool for me and my grandmother taught me how to use it. A sweet memory. I think the old spool is somewhere in with my sewing machine parts and tools.
Well this is really really lovely A+ hugsxx
Very smart of you! I love the delicate butterfly and SD designs. You did magnificent with the butterfly and the bowl. I can’t find the cotton rope here either or I would have tried these bowls before now. I don’t knit but think you are genius to make your own.
Hi Toogie thanks for the kind words I had to think of something to get it out of my system now have quite of few meters over will have to make a square bowl next
Really enjoy going through old post. Forgot about this technic. I called it knobby knitting. Thanks for reminder.
Never heard of French knitting. Seeing the bowl I guess it's what we used to do on a wooden thread spool where dad hammered in 4 nails or what's called I-cord nowadays?
Anyway, your bowl looks great!
Mops, look at her reply to peafarm above. ..I'm glad you understand, I am still dumbfounded. Maybe google knows. They say google knows everything-lol
OKAY???!!! It is brilliant!! Making your own rope by French knitting is a great idea. How enterprising of you? The bowl is a wonderful success and looks lovely. Congratulations!!
Where do I learn how to do these? Love it!
Thanks for your kind words ... I must admit I did go on utube to refresh my mind as to how the start. But it came back quite quickly
It turned out beautifully! Gorgeous! Would you please make one for me! LOL
Hi Carol, it has turned out perfectly and it will hold lots of goodies, I'm sure. Love Chris
Thank you have quite a lot over will make a square one next I believe the square shape is a bit more difficult ..
Very impressive work. I think that you have created a first for Cute in making your rope as well as the rest
thank you I also need to keep hands busy while watching TV in the evenings that does not require to much concentration
I love this - it looks wonderful! One day, I will try to make a rope bowl!! Hugs!
Thank you for the kind words
Well great Job you done!!! It is Beautiful!!!
Oh my! This will become your favorite bowl. I remember twisting rope as a young child, but never did I make the rope. Really beautiful and extra special.
I'd say it turned out much better than OK. I love the texture of your rope. I hope you make many more of these bowls. They are beautiful.
I have about another 25 metres of the rope so will try a square bowl next
Nicely done, Carol!
What a great idea and the result looks fantastic. What kind of material did you use to create the cord?
the cord is string which I made using French knitting
I know about French knitting just wondered if you had used crochet cotton or what the string was made of.
I am curious as well, although I don’t knit.
