Finger Knit a Flower for Kids

Finger Knit a Flower for Kids

With Armistice Day upon us we wanted to make our own poppies in honour of those fallen soldiers who gave their lives. I had seen a while ago a finger knitting craft on Red Ted Art so we decided to use it to create our own poppy’s to wear, I know the red wool we have used is totally the wrong shade :)!

Needed to Make a Poppy

  • Red Wool
  • Black Felt
  • Broach pin

Finger knit to the length of around 30cm, then tie the ends together to make a loop. Then shape the loop into a flower shape, and use some of the wool to tie it in place. Use glue to stick a round piece of felt as the flower centre.
Sew the broach pin to the back to the poppy.

Alternatively you could make you length of knitting using French knitting.

Although we were making these flowers to commemorate Remembrance Day, you could use different coloured wool to make gifts for friends, or to sew a flower onto a hat or scarf as decoration.
