What kind of yarn do you use for finger knitting?
The best yarns for finger knitting are styles which are chunky, thick to touch and easy to grab hold of. Using a thick yarn will help bulk out the project, fill the gaps between stitches and be easier to hold and work with.
How do you cast on for finger knitting?
Hold the yarn between your thumb and your index finger. The tail end (loose end) of your yarn to the left. The working yarn (still attached to the ball) to the right. Weave the working yarn (going from left to right) over your index finger, under your middle finger, over your ring finger and behind your little finger.

Is finger knitting easier?
Finger knitting is a fabulous and easy craft for kids of all ages (from around the ages of 5 and up, but younger kids may be capable also). It’s a simple stitch, requires no experience or expertise, no equipment other than yarn and scissors and it is much, much quicker and easier than traditional knitting.
What age should you start knitting?
About 5 to 6 is generally the best age to start knitting, but desire to learn and dexterity are also reliable indicators. If kids watch eagerly as you pull up a skein of yarn and needles or they can tie their shoes easily, they are probably ready.
How do you start finger weaving?
- Step 1: Turn your non-dominant hand so that your palm is face up.
- Step 2: Take hold of the yarn in the back of your hand.
- Step 3: Pull the string around your pinky and then weave back in the opposite direction.
- Step 4: Let the end of the yarn hang behind your hand between your thumb and index finger.
How do you teach a child to knit?
Here’s a few things I found helpful that I learned while teaching my girls to knit:
- MAKE IT FUN. Try to make it fun! Teach them rhymes/songs to help remember the steps.
- MAKE IT EASY TO SUCCEED. Start with a yarn that they can’t split or break.
- STAY ORGANIZED. Kids accumulate stuff.
