It's something to do with knitting but no idea what it's called so can't look up how to use it!
I looked around here but couldn't really find the right place to ask.
MIL gave it to me but didn't know how it works either. She was sure I did so insisted I had it.
TIA

It appears to be a knitting loom

It's not a knitting loom. They have one ring of spikes. Could it be a braid maker?

DorisDances is right, its a flower loom. You can use it to make several different designs and they're quite effective. You can get all the petals the same length.
You can get free patterns online.
