Last Winter I did a lot of knitting. This year I am working on my ripple blanket which is a crochet project. But I’ve been thinking of teaching my 7 year old French knitting. I remember learning to as a child and it is easier than either knitting or crochet I think. I had a Knitting Nancy similar to this one. (Thanks for the photo B)
But I’ve always wondered what you’d make with the resulting chain of knitting? I don’t remember what I made with them. So I’ve spent some time searching the net and found some pretty and useful things to make. This first one is the nicest I think – I’d wear this. But the photo is copyrighted so you will have to click through to see it over here. The rest are clickable photos hat will take you to the sites where I found them.
So what do you think? Have you done French knitting? What did you make?
Do you think its a good choice for my 7 year old?
