In the Martin & Sylvia: Saturdays! story “Nippy Knitting Day,” the weather has turned chilly, and Martin and Sylvia are inspired to finger-knit a scarf.
If you’ve never finger-knitted before, you might need some help. Take one end of the yarn and tie it to your thumb. Then wind the yarn around your fingers once, twice, three times and four so that it looks like there are now two rows. One finger at a time, pull the lower row over the finger so that it is now at the back of your hand - then wind the yarn once and twice and repeat. The scarf will be as long as you wish.
When you are finished, tie the yarn and wrap it to keep your warm on ‘nippy’ days!
