How To Finger Knit an Infinity Scarf

Today I will be showing you step by step how to finger knit an infinity scarf. This project is so easy and inexpensive that I wanted to make up a bunch of them to give away for Christmas gifts. It takes me 30 minutes to finish each scarf. The only things that you will need are yarn, scissors and your fingers. :) Kids love to finger knit but adults will love this project too. 

I made a video that will show you how I made my scarf as I do it. So if you have any questions, check out the video. 

The kind of yarn that I used was Lion Brand and it is listed as bulky number 6.
I got my yarn on sale for $2.50. We will be using only one spool of yarn to do this scarf. This is a wonderful price for such an awesome gift. It is stylish and the yarn comes in all kinds of colors. I plan on making some for myself too. :)

The first thing that I do is take off all the rings on the hand that I will be knitting with. I will be using my left hand. 

I make a slip knot on the end of my yarn and then slip the knot over my thumb. 

I give myself a little extra yarn in the beginning so that I will have enough to tie the ends together when my scarf is finished. I hold the yarn in place with my thumb as I begin wrapping the yarn around my fingers. 

I go in front of my first finger and behind my second finger.

I go between my third and pinky finger and then behind my pinky.

I wrap the yarn around my pinky and go back between my pinky and third finger.

I go between my second and third finger and in front of my second finger. 

Now I go between my first and second finger and wrap it behind my first finger.

I wrap the yarn around my first finger and come across the front of all my fingers like this.

I take the yarn that is wrapped around my pinky finger and pull it over top of the yarn that is laid across the top of my pinky finger.

Then I pull the yarn that is wrapped around my third finger over top of the yarn string laid across my fingers.

Now I do my second finger.

Now I do my pointer finger. 
You can do this by starting from the pinky OR starting from the first finger. I show you by starting from the pinky finger because I do not want you to skip your pinky. Sometimes when we first start finger knitting we might miss the pinky by accident because the yarn might fall off the pinky and then we skip it. So once you get the hang of it, give both starting points a try. :) 

Now I take my yarn string and wrap it around the back of my hand to the first finger and across the front of my fingers. Then we start pulling the wrapped yarn from each finger over top of the loose yarn like we did before. Keep doing this over and over again until you get to the end of your yarn.

This is what your scarf will start to look like on the back of your hand. You can pull the end of your scarf like this from time to time to check out how awesome your scarf is looking. :)

Once you get to the end of your yarn you can take the end of your yarn and slide it under the yarn on each finger like this. You can slide the yarn off of your fingers as you do it. Now you pull the end string to tighten it.

Now it is time to end our project. I take the end string of one side and push it through any hole on the end of the opposite side and then do the same thing on the other side. I tie the strings together a couple of times and then I push the end strings through each other's side again and double tie it again. Then I cut the ends off when I know that it is tied securely. Yay!! We are all done! That was so EASY! 

Don't forget to check out the video if you have any questions on how to do this. It shows you in more detail how to do it. :)
