Finger knitting















Assalm alykom:
I had my daughters who are ages 5 and 9 try this finger knitting. I tried it too and found it quite easy. Here is a tutorial on how to do it. It was a little difficult for my 5 year old daughter, but she was able to make a small bracelet. My 9 year old daughter became really good at it once she made few scarves. The first scarf in the picture is her first try. The next two are much better. The orange one is mine. I made a few of them and braided them. The one on her bear was made with a real chinky yarn, and she made it real long. You should try them with your kids, it is great for their eye hand coordination!

salaams,

we got the Alex Friendship Braclet maker. My daughter likes it and it makes nice bracelets and you get the same hand/eye coordination.

Assalamu'alaykum,

Jizak'Allahu Khairan for the nice idea masha'Allah and I really like you and your girls scarfs.

Me and my BOYS tried this a while back and it was lots of fun. Even now if they know that there is some yarn around, they sometimes like to sit and finger knit.

Barak Allahu feek,
