Magnolia has been wanting to knit like I do for awhile now but I don't think she's coordinated to handle the yarn and 2 needles so I found a solution...finger knitting. I found instructions on the internet and she took to it right away. The only thing that can be made with this knitting technique is a chain so we've had to get creative thinking of useful things Magnolia can make. Baby doll scarves, bracelets, belts and necklaces.
Here are the steps with a few pictures for finger knitting.
1. Hold the tail with your thumb and lay yarn across you palm.
5. Now it's time to "knit". One each finger pull the lower loop over the top loop and off your finger. Once you've done this to all of your fingers, each finger will now only have 1 loop left. Now it's time to repeat step 2 and 3 so that each finger again has 2 loops.
These dolls are now ready for the winter temps ahead!
