1970 K-Tel Knitter Commercial


Watch this 1970’s commerical for a knitting/crochet instrument called the “K-Tel Knitter”. This does look kinda amazing, no? Looks like a fast way to knit too. Has anyone ever gotten one of these off ebay or played with one as a kid? If so, please post a comment! We’d love to know. (Note: Announcers voice is a bit loud and annoying.) Thanks Marie! [ via ]

    I got a K-tel Knitter for my son last year and he loved it! I got a few photos of him using one at my blog:
    He also likes knitting on a knitting loom, he needs a little help as he is only 5 years old but he gets really into it.

    I used one for years. To me, it was a crochet tool more than a knitter. It was the only way I could make consistently even stitches. With it, I could knock out a project very quickly. I wonder why they stopped making them.
