Handpaint Wool Finger Knitting Yarn - Burly Spun

  • Handpaint Wool Finger Knitting Yarn

Description

The thickest yarn we have is also our favorite for beginner finger knitters (as young as 5 years old) learning to make a cord. Divvy it up among the children by preparing several balls from one hank. Kindergarten teachers and many moms will undo the finger knitted cords at the end of each day, wind the yarn back into balls and fill up the basket once again so every morning yarn is at the ready to be finger knitted anew.

Children come up with all sorts of uses for their finger knitted cords ~ horsey reins, belts, garlands, crowns, lashing for play forts, string for making shapes and much more. Sew together in a spiral to make potholders, rugs, doll hats, hot plate pads, and table mats.

Look for finger knitting instructions in the books Kids Knitting and The First Book of Knitting for Children and many places online.

Children learn best with rhymes and repetition. Here's a helpful verse for learning to finger knit:

"In through the lake,
Pull out the snake!"

Dubbed the "Fastest in the West", Burly Spun is so thick you can knit up a beautiful gift in an evening. It can also be woven with and is very useful in needle felting. All around a very fun yarn that yields quick results!

Made in Nebraska from 100% USA wool.
