The girls are still enjoying making things from their finger knitting. Although, now that summer is in full swing the piles of finger knitted “snakes” have slowed down. They have enjoyed teaching a few of their friends how to knit as well. I enjoy listening to them explain how it works. The girls are now on a mission to find fun yarn at garage sales.
The girls wanted to turn their piles of knitting into something that they could wear. This cute little headband turned out so great, now all it needs is a chunky button to the center. What little girl would not love to wear a headband created by her! It was so simple to make.
Use 1 length of knitting wrapped around the head twice and tied to the length you desire. (Sorry for the lack of exact measurements, but each head will be different.) Since the weave of the knitting is very stretchy, make sure you make it smaller than your head. The flower was created by using another length of knitting. We chose to use the same color of yarn, but it would be cute in a contrasting color. Simply make tiny loops with the knitting working around in a circle until the flower is filled with loopy pedals. Use the tail of the knitting to secure the flower to the head band. A simple knot will work.
The necklace was created using the same techniques as the headband. I love how they turned out and the girls are so proud of their handiwork.
