- Follow the instructions in the video: How to Use the Artistic Wire Knitter Tool.
- Knit your desired length. Note: the clasp and cones will measure approximately 2 3/4 inches.
- While the knitted wire is still on the tool, carefully pour all of the bicones into the opening. You may need to assist them and scoot them down through the middle of the wires.
- Leave a tail of wire about 6 inches long. Cut the wire and carefully thread it though the top loops to tie it off. These ends will fit in the cones. You want to make sure that it is crimped enough so that the bicones fall out. Do this on each side. Then set the piece aside.
- Cut off about 20 inches of 18 gauge wire. Use the Conetastic tool to make two identical wire cones using the 11mm x 2mm mandrel cone. Watch the video: How to Use the Artistic Wire Contastic Mandrel Tool Set.
- Once you have your cone completed, clip the ends and tuck them in ever so slightly. Set aside
- Cut off about 3 inches of 18 gauge wire. On one end, make a simple wire loop. Use the loop to catch all of the final loops of your knitting. Close the loop. Thread it up through one of the cones that you just made. Make a wrapped wire loop to complete the cone. Repeat this on the other side.
- Open a jump ring and attach it to the loop of one of the finished cones. Close the jump ring.
- Open a jump ring and attach it to the loop of the other cone. Add the lobster clasp. Close the jump ring.
- All done!
