Craft or Crap: Finger knit warmth

Emily Bouta Juice Editor


 Instead of freezing our butts off, The Collegian thought it would be a good idea to make a scarf instead. With so many styles and ways to make scarves we thought trying a finger knitted infinity scarf looked the easiest. 

We had trouble starting it, but once we did it only took us 25 minutes to complete the whole scarf. Before starting it we suggest that you unravel the yarn and turn it into a ball – it makes it easier to keep going when you start. Another helpful hint would be to make sure the knots you tie are really strong. You don’t want to be halfway done and have the whole thing unravel. 

We’re glad to have come across this way of making a scarf. If we would have used needles, it would have taken us a lot longer than 25 minutes.

1.) Tie a knot and place around your pinky. 

2.) Wrap a loop around each individual finger, then wrap around all fingers. 

3.) Pull bottom piece of yarn over the top part on each finger. 

4.) After you are left with the single row on your finger wrap the yarn around your finger again, continue until you have a piece of yarn about as long as the part from your elbow to your wrist. 

5.) Tie a knot at the end of the scarf so it doesn’t unravel, tie the strings from each end together to make it an infinity scarf.
