Curly Made: DIY Fringe Trim // Sweater update

Problem was, I didn't had any in hand and if I ordered it online it would take some time to arrive, so my option was to try and figure out how to make one myself.

Whether you call them Knitting Nancys, Bizzy Lizzys, knitting mushrooms, knitting spools, corkers, peg knitters, knitting nobbys (or knitting noddys) or knitting knobbys, these knitting devices all owe their existence to the medieval lucet. It's used by threading yarn through the hole then in a figure eight around the prongs. Knitting Nancys are four-prong variants of the lucet.

Versions like the one pictured above used to be made out of wooden thread spools, something difficult to do in these modern times since thread spools are now plastic. Yarn is fed down through the hole and left to hang. Different Stitches:
