Last December, I hopped onto Instagram Stories and made a quick finger knitting tutorial for those who were asking how I made the little wreath present toppers.  The quick tutorial went over so well that I decided I should make a proper video tutorial for my YouTube channel and to share here on my blog.  What’s wonderful about this project is that it’s super easy and a very quick project.  You can make one of the little wreaths to use as ornaments or handmade present-toppers in just a couple of minutes.  If you want to knit a garland to mix in with greens or swag on a Christmas tree, that would be an easy TV-watching project.  It’s also kid-friendly.

Here is the easy finger knitting video tutorial…

Finger knitting is easier shown than explained, so I would suggest watching the video and you’ll pick it up quickly.

Did anyone else do finger knitting as a kid?  I made a little strap for a homemade purse by finger knitting some yarn.  It was fun to dust off that old craft and bring it back again in a new way.  For this project, I use Lion Brand WoolEase Thick & Quick Yarn.  It’s a good chunky yarn that is perfect for Christmas projects like this one and my chunky crochet snowflake.

This is a knit garland I purchased a few years ago, but the Lion Brand yarn will give you a very similar look.  Other than the yarn, you just need your fingers and a pair of scissors.  Like I said…easy.

I think I’ll do something different this year, but last year I swagged some knit garland around my tree along with some wool pom garland.

Happy finger knitting!

    Wow! I’m so excited because I think I can actually do this! A few years ago my friend and I took a knitting class and every time we went back for the next lesson the instructor tore out half my work because I made a mistake waaaay back, 😕😕 I am left handed and have always had a hard time being taught yarn crafts but I love them so I’m excited! Thank you Marian! 🤗🤗

      I’m also a lefty who has struggled with knitting and crocheting, so I feel your pain! This is a great tutorial!
