    Chunky Throw Pillow

    Finger knitting may be easy, but the finished product doesn’t need to look like the work of child’s play. Flax & Twine uses Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick and Quick to create a textured accent pillow cover that adds polish to a neutral chair or couch.

    Pretty Placemat

    Though this craft from Flax & Twine might be something to work up to (it’s more time-consuming than the others you’ve seen), it's definitely a project to set your sights on. Use yarn and a hula hoop to create a bright rug, wall hanging, placemat, or table covering.

    Jersey Knit Bracelet
