We love finger knitting! It’s fun and safe for everyone to try because no needles are needed. All you need is a ball of wool and some fingers to have a go!
You can share pictures of your woolly creations over on the Ribena Facebook page and if they’re purple knits then even better.
Right, let’s get started…
1. Hold the end of the wool between your thumb and forefinger
2. Weave the wool over your forefinger, behind your middle finger and over your ring finger.
3. Wind the wool anti-clockwise behind and around your three middle fingers.
4. Pull the lower loop on your ring finger over the upper piece of wool and away from you, over the top of your finger.
5. Move the wool held between your thumb and forefinger to between your forefinger and middle finger so that it goes over the wool in front of all three fingers.
6. Wind the long end of wool attached to the ball anti-clockwise, behind and then around your three middle fingers, and behind your little finger.
7. On your ring finger, pull the lower loop over the upper piece of wool and then over your finger again so it sits behind your finger. Repeat this on your middle and forefingers so you can see three loops left on your fingers.
8. Repeat the last two steps until you have knitted as much as you need. You can tighten the knitting by pulling the short piece of wool behind your fingers at any time.
9. Cast off (finish) by leaving about 15cm of wool free and then cutting with scissors. Thread this end through the three loops on your fingers then remove and pull tight.
Voila, your finger knitting creation is complete!
