Knitted rustic band for a wagon wheel chandelier


For our guest house, we wanted to have wooden chandeliers for the kitchen and the living room. So we found an old piece of wood for living room and attached 12 lights. For the kitchen we found a wagon wheel and transform it in a chandelier with 6 lights.

As you can see in the photo of the kitchen table with the wheel on top, the chandelier has a big black part. Because we don’t have too much black around the house we decided to make something to break the black. I had some hemp rope and I knitted a small band.

It is 42.5 cm long and 7 cm wide. It has a simple pattern and I used a needle to fix it on the wheel.


Cast 9 stitches.

Row 1: K1,P1, K1, P1,….,K1,P1,K1

Repeat Row 1 for every row.

(K1 means knit 1, P1 means purl 1)

I like the way it looks on the wheel. It looks rustic like I wanted to be and breaks the black too.
