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!
More Christmas crafts projects are coming soon…
