Knitted friendship bracelets are an easy craft, fun to make, and are special gifts to give. There are several ways to make these colorful knitted bracelets. This tutorial will show a friendship bracelet diy project using finger knitting.

WHAT IS FINGER KNITTING?

Finger knitting is a way of knitting without knitting needles. It is also called finger weaving. You can finger knit with one, two, three, or four fingers depending on the thickness of the cord you want to use to make your project.  Finger Knitted Friendship Bracelet fb

WHO CAN FINGER KNIT?

People of all ages can finger knit - ages 4 to 99 year olds.  Finger knitting is a fun activity for young children to improve their motor skills and is a great way to introduce knitting to children. After learning how to finger knit, It will be easier for a child to understand knitting with needles.

The bracelets can be made from many types of yarn, even bulky yarn and chunky yarn. Check out our tutorial for making t-shirt yarn out of old t-shirts, which can also be used.

Finger knitting is a great project for children on rainy days. All that is needed is colorful yarn. This is also an excellent group project for Scouts, 4-H, school class projects, and birthday parties.

These finger knitted friendship bracelets can be made with several strands of yarn. For this tutorial, one strand will be used. This single stitch method result is similar to a finger single chain crochet.
