French knitting is a brilliant fun craft project for kids where they can make their own knitted rope. It’s easy to get the hang of and produces a good length quickly (especially if you use chunky wool) so it’s satisfying for kids to learn. You can make lots of things out of your lengths of French knitting – check out some ideas here on Pinterest.
You can buy pretty French knitting dollies in craft shops. However it’s also really easy to make your own. Click here to find our Red Kite Days tutorial on how to make a ‘French knitting nancy’ out of a cardboard tube and lollipop sticks.
