Learn how to make this beautiful woven finger-knit rug in a fabulous video tutorial with yours truly! With the kids back in school learning new skills, I thought it was time to give you the opportunity to learn something new, too. I am very excited to share with you my latest video class on Creativebug for creating a Woven Finger-Knit Rug! I am always eager to share new classes with you, but this project particularly excites me because it is a favorite from my book Knitting Without Needles. It uses finger-knitting (which can sometimes be mislabeled a “kids craft”) in a truly beautiful way. Learn some weaving basics at the same time!
So whether you are new to knitting or already a prolific finger- knitter looking for a use for your balls of finger-knit chains, this class is for you! Creativebug is offering new members a 1 month free trial + 1 free class to keep forever, too! Use the code ANNEWEIL to get your bonus!
After taking this class you will realize, finger knitting is a great way to engage little and big hands alike. How fun would it be to buy yarn you like and work together with your kiddo on this finger-knit rug? The result is so squishy and fabulous, and each time you sink your toes into the thick yarn you will be reminded of making it together!
Here is the official class description and what you will learn:
Combine hundreds of yards of finger-knit chains to create a plush, one-of-a-kind cotton rug– no knitting needles required! Anne Weil teaches you the basics of finger knitting, then shows you how to make your very own weaving loom out of simple craft materials. You will learn how to weave your finger-knit chains to make a gorgeous, striped design and finish the rug with decorative tassels. Finger knitting is a fun activity for all ages and a great way to introduce newbies to knitting. Get the whole family involved in the project and you’ll have finished rug in no time.
