This is the tallest spool knitter of my collection so far.
This spool knitter is from France (tricotin is the french name for spool knitters). It is 17cms tall (6.5 ins). I am not sure if she is supposed to represent Becassine (a popular fictional children's book character in France). Maybe someone reading this could help me there.
Here is the smallest spool knitter that I have complete with its own box. This one measures just 2cms and is a working model as you can see by the length of "cord", called a *strickliesel* which is the german name for these spool knitters.
