Last week, I promised I’d share Teddy’s DIY finger knitted flower tutorial.
Teddy’s been finger knitting like a wild-man and we’ve made so many beautiful creations from the fruits of his labor.
I have already shared an easy finger knitting tutorial with you so that you can teach your child this wonderful skill. Finger knitting is a very calming activity and is great for strengthening hand-eye coordination in children.
Your little one will be so proud of the gorgeous goodies he can make from a few minutes of hard work.
- to make our finger knitted flower, Teddy finger knitted a three-foot length of yarn rope from lovely rainbow colored yarn.
- he then finger knitted this three-foot yarn rope a second time so that it was nice and fat.
- we rolled the fat yarn rope into a spiral and used a needle and thread to sew the spiral into place so that it will not unravel.
- with garden scissors, we cut a twig from the garden tree that had a small branch coming off to the left.
- we cut out a green felt leaf and stuck it, using a hot glue gun, onto the twig branch.
- we again used the hot glue gun to stick the yarn flower spiral onto the top of the twig and put our pretty flower into a vase.
Teddy’s pretty finger knitted flower is sitting on my desk and has brightened my day a million times.
Here is another great finger knitting project for kids. This finger knitted rug was made by the 9 year old children at Maple Village Waldorf School.
If you have enjoyed this DIY tutorial for kids, I think you’ll love my other yarn crafting tutorials too.
Here are some other fun spring crafting projects.
Blessings and magic,
I showed her how to finger knit yesterday – I’m not sure why I waited this long – she has become a finger knitting fiend overnight.
Thank you for all the fun things you share!
I know, Emily… my little one is a finger-knitting fiend as well. And now I’ve taken it up too!!
Thanks for your kind words.
