- chunky yarn in three colors
- see my previous post about how to finger knit here.
Decide how long a scarf you'd like to make, ours is 200cm, a good length for a scarf that would provide warmth. Make three finger knit ropes each the same length, and about 1 1/3 greater than your desired finished lenght. If you make a tight braid, so you may want to make the strands even 1 1/2 times longer. Not exactly sure, do a little test yourself, and do the calculations with your kids, a great way to show them how useful math can be for creative activities too!
Tie three finished strands together with a knot and braid. Tie another knot at the end of the braid, trim ends and proudly wear! Would love to see photos of any little artists who give this one a try! Happy winter crafting!
Whoops, almost forgot! While your kids are finger knitting you could make some fun hangers like the one in the photo by following my instructions for a crocheted wire hanger cover. Enjoy!
