Teaching Children

Hi, this is my first posting on this board, and I’m looking for some help today. I have been teaching(trying to anyhow) my 8 & 14 yr old grandaughters how to knit, the oldest is picking it up easly, but not the younger one. She is a very coordinated young lady, but I can’t seem to show her how to control the yarn and needles at the same time. I have seen a method of finger knitting a long time ago, but can’t remember how it’s done. I’m hoping someone here can tell me how to do it so I can teach her.

Try this:


that is cute. I think I might teach my 5 year old how to do it. :slight_smile:

Thank you, that’s just what I needed, she’ll be a happy camper now.
