Of all of the “Knit Bits” we did for Knitty Gritty, the segment on finger knitting seemed to be one of the most popular. For years, people have been e-mailing, asking for tutorials so they can teach their kids how to knit without needles. Well, better late than never, right? Check out my step-by-step instructions up on the CRAFT website, along with the pattern for this Twisty Scarf!
Oh, and parents; I can vouch for finger knitting being a great way to keep your kiddos occupied this summer. Look, I have photographic proof!
For those of you playing along at home, that’s Yarn Goodness + Busy Kids= the Gift of a Little Summertime Peace & Quiet for the Parentals. Whaddya waiting for? Type on over to CRAFT now for the scoop!
Psst! Finger knitting’s fun for adults, too!
