Fluffy Knit Garland
Eee! Do you ever have one of those projects that you just love to death? I made this gorgeous fluffy fingerknit garland this week and adore the way it turned out. I got the idea because I have some yarn ball garland I’d used on my Christmas tree in previous years, but it didn’t match my black and white color scheme… So, I had to think of something else to use.
I thought about making some new yarn ball garland in white, but while staring at the fluffy white yarn on my desk, I remembered my friend Anne’s book knitting without needles and promptly went to the shelf to look up how to fingerknit.
I followed the instructions in the book at voila! A really beautiful knit garland. I photographed the process, but after popping onto Anne’s site to link to her book, I noticed that she’d posted a fingerknit tutorial just last week… so she’s the expert and I wanted you guys to get the tutorial straight from the source! See the how-to on Anne’s blog, Flax & Twine right here. I used the Patons Cobbles yarn from Michaels to get this lofty, roving look. Your probably going to want to go ahead a buy the full book though after catching the fingerknit bug! I’m already half done with a pillow in just a day.
Didn’t the garland turn out adorable? I have a good eight yards to deck the halls with this Christmas.
So, tell me… any handmade treasures on your Christmas tree this year?
