It is a Pony French Knitter also called knitty knobby, knitting nancy, spool knitter…. The instructions that came with the thingummy weren’t too clear, but I found this excellent site with pictures and stuff.

Best of all, this toy is Made in India and for a change, it is actually available here. *clap vigorously* I got it for Rs 42 on my last trip to Hyderabad. (And yes, I do have rather a lot of lines on my palms.)
