French knitting & scrap fabric necklaces

We’re on half term this week, catching a much-needed breath, and we’re doing lots of fun, easy projects. I am a very basic knitter, and Little Miss was keen to learn, so we bought a Galt kit, which was well-stocked with needles and wool, but the knitter had hooks, which was tricky for little fingers, so we bought a Prym knitting dolly with round ends. Much easier! There is also a smaller version: Prym 4-loop Knitting Dolly.

We made some takeaway coffee cup holders (from this nice,Β simple pattern from Social Knitworking), a French knitΒ necklace, a bracelet, and a fabric necklace with scraps of fabric from other projects (instructions here).

    Wonderful, my daughter does a lot of finger knitting and craft things in her spare time. I will show my daughter the cup holders as that is something I am sure she will have a go at πŸ™‚
