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. Do you remember some of the craziest toy fads in history? You might want to try them out again.

Seasonal Ornament

We can’t get enough of Flax & Twine crafts—especially these sweet mini wreaths. The perfect project for a child or a finger knitting beginner, the simple technique creates an adorable decoration that’s perfect for fall. These new trends are more insidious–we hope they stay in 2019.

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.
