I was reminded his fun finger knitting is when I taught the girl, who isn’t quite ready for knitting with needles just yet.
It’s a quick and easy way to makes all knit fabric, and a good entry into the world of knitting if you aren’t quite ready to use needles. And if you are a knitter already, it’s still fun to try something different.
Finger Knit Bracelet
Start with some bulky yarn, and use the fingers of your non-dominant hand as your “needles.”
Put the end of the yarn between your thumb and pointer finger, and weave the yarn in front of and behind your fingers.
Go around the other way.
Repeat so that there are two full loops on each finger. Spread your fingers wide so the stitches aren’t too tight to move.
Pick up the lower loop and pull it over the top loop and over the top of your finger. Repeat across.
Loop the yarn in the same manner so there are two full loops on each finger again. Repeat.
Continue in this manner for a few rows, then pull on the knit fabric to straighten it out and make it look more like knitting.
To bind off, I took the stitch from my pinkie and put it on my ring finger, then pulled the ring finger stitch up, then moved it to the middle finger and so on across.
Sew the cast on and bound off edges together.
Have you ever tried finger knitting? I’d love to hear what you think of it, or to see your results if you try this project. (Tag me with #ourdailycraft.)
