My kids are BIG TIME into Finger Knitting. They learnt how to finger knit a few months ago and now they can’t stop knit knit knitting away. Finger knitting, though a great way to introduce kids to knitting, can be a bit, well uhm.. sausage like. We have made lots and lots of toy scarves with it and one or two finger knitted flowers. So we were looking for other ideas to make out of finger knitting. And watching our cats lay with the the finger knitting the kids made, made us think of these: little finger knitted mice.. a perfect little cat toy. The kids do the finger knitting, and I finished them off with a couple of loops for ears and contrasting thread for whiskers…. check out our little “how to video” below.
