I have been thinking a lot about finger-knitting and have really wanted to add something new to the Five Fabulous Finger-Knit Progect series. This garland is easy and fun for kids to make. Finger knitting makes a nice, textured strand for hanging things. A similar strand could be used for many different kinds of garlands. Or, you could deck out an entire room in just a strand of black finger knitting–great for Halloween. I think it would make for a fabulous spider web–with lots of creepy spiders stuck in the strands! Ohh, I think I have next year’s project! For more fabulous finger knitting ideas, check out this gallery here, or by clicking this button:
Secure an elastic over the head. This step isn’t entirely necessary. You could go straight to tying with the yarn, if you want. The elastic just holds the shape of the head easily while you tie the yarn around the neck. If you found black elastic, you could skip the yarn step altogether, if you want.
Tie a piece of black yarn around the neck of your ghost.
Thread your needle with black thread. Bring the needle up from underneath the bottom of the ghost and through the top of the head.
Add your ghosts to the line of finger knitting by attaching like you would attach a tag. Wrap the loop around the strand of finger knitting and pull the ghost through the loop. This way you will be able to adjust the positioning of the ghosts as you see fit.
I’m a huge fan of this cheery, though black, collection. Bonus, I think it will last balled up in the decorations box till next season too!
