KIDS CAN CREATE: How to make a ball of wool

This is a video series designed to help children learn how to knit! People often think knitting is hard – but it really is not. Once you get the hang of it, it is a simple and wonderful skill that allows you to create almost anything you can imagine with a simple piece of string!

This video is best suited to children 3-10 years old.

In this video, Marshall, 4 and Willow, 8, learn how to make a small ball of wool by wrapping the wool around their fingers loosely, pinching it off, then continuing to wrap the wool changing the angle slightly every 10-20 times to create a small ball.

Making a ball of wool is useful when:

  • You are making a pompom – your wool will need to fit through a small hole in the pompom maker so you need a small ball
  • You want to knit on the go and your ball of wool is too big
  • Your ball of wool is a mess and you need to tidy it up
  • You are bored and would like to make balls of wool
