Finger knitting is a really good way of getting children interested in wool crafts, and it is very easy to learn. It also helps to improve a child’s dexterity and ability to concentrate. No extra implements are required, just fingers, the best tools in the world! I often carry balls of yarn in my bag to pass the time in the doctors surgery or similar.
Finger knitting produces a long thin strip of stocking stitch and there are many things you can do with these strips. In this tutorial, which is suitable for children, I will show you how to finger knit. You can use any weight of yarn for finger knitting but for this tutorial I used chunky which produces a nice stocking stitch.
Finger knitting is very addictive and children love it for its simplicity and ease. I have loads of strips of finger knitting laying around the house and there are lots of things that you can do with them.
