Ruffler Foot Made Sew Easy It's Hands Free!

If you've ever used a ruffler foot you will know you need to guide your fabric carefully.

I've been making a Victorian Gown. That means lots of ruffley goodness. I have about 150 meters of ribbon I'm using on this project most of which I've been pleating using my sewing machines ruffler foot. 
Carefully guiding that much yardage through would drive me insane!

I needed a way to make it easy and fast without needing a lot of concentration.

I needed to automate guiding that ribbon through.

It's so easy and simple and effective I can't believe I didn't think of this earlier.

How To Add Beads To Your Spool Knitting



If you're new to spool knitting check out our Spool Knitting Tutorial before learning to add beads.

  • learn how to use your spool knitter to make cord, 
  • learn how to make three different types of cord; and 
  • how to make a necklace with your finished cords.


Once you're up to speed on how to spool knit you can start purfylling (embellishing) your cords with beads.

Adding Beads To Spool Knitting:


 1. Thread your beads onto your yarn before you start. 





2. Start your knitting as normal and once you've completed the first round you can begin to add beads.





3. Push a bead up your yarn to the space in-between spool pegs and then make the next stitch (or loop).




4. Push your next bead up, make another loop and so on.




It's important your beads are small enough to fit through the centre of your spool knitter.



Try adding beads every other stitch to get stripes of beads on your cord.

  3. Love this! But does that mean you have to cut your yarn to the measured length first?

    1. Not at all, you can keep going until you've run out of yarn but you do need to thread all of your beads on first.
