With Purls

I was always wondering how people do all those finger-knitted stuff from rugs and blankets up to scarfs and earrings. Being an expert knitter, I realized that the peak of finger-knitting still wasn’t conquered, so I looked through a lot of sites where someone writes essay with detailed instructions and patterns. Finally, i decided to knit a necklace (it sounds sooo weird).

Seems like choosing the pattern took me more time than knitting process itself. It is literally the most easy-to-do thing I’ve ever crafted.

You can find a YouTube tutorial to finger-knit as it is quite widespread technique. I saw even an online store, which sell finger-knitted outdoor clothes. It looked pretty cute and so much overpriced for extremely simple DIY stuff.

I also like this necklace fits the idea of recycling and is totally eco. It’s a bit massive I guess, but it will lay great on some tender silk shirt or tee.

And I’ll leave you with this pun ‘How do you make knitted jewelry? With purls’.

PS to the knitters: t-shirt yarn is even easier to do. It took me 15 minutes only. Just take some cotton jersey t-shirt and cut it in corkscrew way to get a long thread. Tug, tug and tug to make it curl. The end!
