Gather your materials.
Reference your Spool Knitting Set Quick Start Guide to learn how to cast on! For this project, instead of casting on every peg, you’ll cast on every third peg.
Continue knitting using the five pegs you casted onto. Stop when your spool knitted i-cord is the desired length for the word or letter you’re making.
Before you cast off, draw out your design to the scale you want it, and lay your i-cord on top to check for length.
Reference your Spool Knitting Set Quick Start Guide to learn how to bind off. Don’t pull the end of your i-cord closed yet!
Stretch the i-cord out and place it on a flat surface. Cut a piece of wire that’s 1 inch (or 3 cm) longer than the i-cord and cut.
Using your hand or pliers, bend the end of the wire into a small loop. This will make it easier to thread the wire through the interior of the i-cord.
Thread the wire into the center of the i-cord and pull it all the way through. Close off your i-cord by pulling the yarn tail on the open side and knotting the end. Weave in the tail.
Mold your letter into its desired shape.
Using a yarn needle and some extra yarn, add stitches where the i-cord overlaps to secure your shape.
Decorate! We used twine and wood beads to create a hanger for our sign.
