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.

Is it to make friendship bracelets?
