The Clover tool offers the use of three interchangeable heads which allows you to make a variety of thicknesses and add complexity in your pieces. Complete instructions and some history about the tool are included to help you get started in making nine great projects in easy to follow, simple steps. Different types of materials, including yarn, nylon, embroidery thread, and wire can be used, as well as an assortment of beads. This technique is fun for crafters of all ages!

My bad....it never occurred to me to look at how many pages were in this "book". When it says it is a paperback book I would expect more than 19 pages. I thought there would be many more projects (only 9), better instructions, and more illustrations. BE AWARE that you are paying 8.99 for essentially a pamphlet and not a very good one.

I must confess, I am totally intrigued by the Clover French Knitting Tool. As a child, I remember my sisters and I making long strings with yarn and a spool with nails. Not sure we ever did anything with them but we loved making those strings!

When I saw Carol Porter demonstrating the tool and saw what she had created, I was really impressed. Carol brings this knowledge and creativity to her booklet. Her designs are beautiful, with a thoughtful use of materials and great results. I found the instructions to be clear and easy to follow and appreciated the large number of photos used to illustrate the techniques. I would love to see more designs and what others are doing with this tool.

I think Making Jewelry With a French Knitter is a good value and the description clearly states what the book includes, I also think that many will want to see more!

I have had so much fun with the French Knitter and get compliments every time I wear a necklace made from yarns or ribbon both with beads added and without. Looks similar to Kumihimo but so much faster and easier. Great for all ages too!!

Rather disappointing, shows many items made with the french knitter, but doesn't have clear directions on how to make them.

The book contained very basic information and only a few patterns or ideas. I thought it would be more in depth
