Finger Knit Scarves

Finger Knit Scarves
A recent excursion to a local pioneer village (along with about forty 3rd graders) taught me how much I don't know about keeping house. While the lessons in churning butter and grinding corn might not come in handy this summer, a few of the tasks were real eye openers. Case in point: Finger knitting.

As an avid crocheter, I have yet to cross hooks with needles. Yet, the finger knitting method was easy to learn, and so useful that I can't believe I wasn't taught to do it as a child (sorry mom). It requires no needles- just a handful of fingers and some yarn. Here are a few ways to wear the stormy gray skinny scarf I finger knitted in about five minutes:

These quick tubes can also be fashioned into belts, wristbands, headbands and purse straps. It took me longer to put together a finger knitting tutorial than it did to make this scarf! It is worth trying at least once, and will become a useful skill to employ for years to come. Have you ever finger knitted?

Nice tutorial. As children, we used to make these as leis in Hawaii. Just tie the ends together when it is a desired lei length! Brings back a ton of memories!
