How to finger knit a scarf!
Knitting is something I've wanted to learn for years, however I've never been able to get the hang of anything off of a loom! I ran across a photo on Pinterest of a finger knit scarf! Unfortunately it lacked more than a brief description of what to do, so I was a bit clueless. I had to try it though- it looked so fun! All I knew was that it was like loom knitting, just with your fingers! Sounds simple enough? Well you're right, it is!

    Step 1

    To begin, use your index finger to tie a slipknot by wrapping the yarn around your index finger twice, then taking the bottom loop and pulling it up, then down through the top loop.Take it off your index finger and move it to your little finger, pulling it slightly tight.

    From there, wrap the yarn around each finger once until you get to your index finger. Once you're there, start wrapping again back the other way to make another row.

    Starting at your little finger, begin pulling the bottom loop over the top one, and up over your finger, continue until you get to the last loop. The last one will seem kind of loose but that's okay! Just push the loops down to the lower part of your fingers and repeat steps 1-3.

    The first photo is how it should look a few minutes through, from then on you should have the hang of it and be able to get a nice long amount of rows with ease! Just keep going until you have your desired length. To see if it's long enough for you, just keep it on your fingers and wrap the tail around your neck, I like mine to go around about 7 times. Just do whatever you like!

    Once you get it to your desired length, measure about 10 inches off your wrapping yarn and cut it. Take that yarn and weave down through the top of your first loop. Take that loop off of your finger then repeat with the next until they all have the string woven through them. Pull the string tight so it gets a bit bunched up.

    And finally, tie a knot or two as close to your scarf end as possible, then grab the beginning of your scarf and tie the two ends together, so you have one long loop. From here you can either wrap it around however you plea for ever, or wrap it around to where you like it once, and when it's where you like it you can add a button, or take a short piece of yarn and tie it somewhere to keep it in place!
