The longest piece of finger knitting measured 4,321.4 m (14,177 ft 9 in) and was completed by Niklas Bernhard (Germany) on 10 June 2004. Niklas, who used woollen yarn left overs supplied by relatives and friends, learned to finger knit in kindergarten and then used this technique to improve his concentration. The finger knitted chain took more than eight years to be finished and was wound into a ball measuring 34 cm (13 in) and weighing 5.62 kg (12 lb 6 oz).
