Steampunk Gear Wheel

The iconic Victorian gear - Steampunk style!

Careful stitch counting is essential, but my step-by-step tutorial guides you along in this interesting pattern which switches from an inner core of six cogs to the fourteen cogs around the outside.

My pink gear is worked in size 10 cotton thread with a 1.75 mm hook and measures 3”/8 cm wide. This would make a lovely applique.

A heavier weight yarn would be more suitable for a coaster.

The gray gear’s worked in DK weight yarn, also cotton, and a 3 mm hook. Measurement: 4 and a half inches/11 cm wide.
