No Knitting Needles Required to Make This Finger-Knit Necklace
This easy knitting project is all about the fingers. All you need is a ball of yarn, scissors and two hands.
Finger knitting is great for little bored hands on car trips, for screen-free time and for building fine motor skills. Plus the end result can be used in so many creative ways, like as a necklace!
Start by lying the tail of the yarn across the palm of your non-dominate hand. This tail will be one side of your necklace so leave it about 6 to 12 inches long for adjusting the length.
With the yarn still attached to the ball, weave the strand over and under your fingers heading towards your pinkie.
Once you reach your pinky finger repeat going back to your ring finger.
Repeat this same pattern again until there are two loops of yarn on each finger.
Starting with the ring finger, pull the bottom loop closest to your palm over the second loop and off your fingers.
Just like before, weave the strand of yarn over and under your fingers until there are again two sets of loops and you can pull the bottom yarn over the top yarn.
Continue until a chain is formed.
Tie off the end of the finger knit chain by knotting the ends of the yarn. Leave the strand on the end long as it will be the second side of your necklace.
Slip a large wooden bead at each end of the necklace for added decoration. Check out these 5 ideas for giving wooden craft store beads a trendy transformation.
