This is such a great skill to teach children. It teaches rhythm, eye/hand coordination, and a deeply refined level of fine motor skill. One of my students this year has not been overly excited about any project. After learning how to do simple finger knitting – she said repeatedly – “I love finger knitting!! I love it!” There is such a feeling of accomplishment!
This student had finished making one bracelet and was on to another one!
A short video showing how I teach simple finger knitting.
One child's finished knitting. It then became a bracelet!
Oh this idea looks so cute. Couple of questions. Does the first loop have a knot? How do you finish it off so it doesnt unravel?
Thanks for the video Sally. We had a teacher a few years ago, doing this when she taught kindergarten. My class was too young then, but they are ready now. Blessings,
