French Knit Butterfly Kit contains specially designed knitting reels so kids can make their own yarn butterflies. Knitting without needles is a great beginning to this yarn craft. French knitting is also known as spool knitting, corking, tomboy knitting, and peg knitting. Knitting helps develop skills like focus and concentration, as well as increasing fine-motor skills that are needed for writing. Following patterns from left to right and seeing immediate progress helps build stronger reading skills. Step-by-step illustrated instructions. Everything included. Ages 8 and up.
