Please knit now

Finger-knitted snake
Get your fingers at the ready and learn how to knit without needles! Suitable for ages 5 and over.

During the Second World War, people were asked to knit socks for soldiers. Abram Games created a poster with the slogan 'Please knit now' to help encourage this.

Get inspired and try your hand at knitting. In this workshop, you'll learn how to create your own finger-knitted snake!
