Give the gift of warmth and fashion this holiday season with this quick and easy finger knit and crochet infinity scarf. A previous guest blog post written by a good friend of mine explains how this pattern helped save her loads of money for Christmas this year.
Assuming you already have a crochet hook, this is a very inexpensive project. This scarf cost me $4.50 plus tax. Now that is great deal! I used one skein of Michael’s brand Loops and Threads Charisma. The button, also from Michael’s is approximately 1.5″. Every woman on your list would love to have this! Follow this simple pictorial and you’ll be finished in no time.
Finger Knit Infinity Scarf: Pictorial

- Crochet hook size 5.0mm
- bulky weight yarn (5)
- Darning needle
- Chain (ch)
- Slip Stitch (slst)
- Half Double Crochet (sc)
We will start this pattern off by crocheting the button wrap, that way we can use all our remaining yarn for the finger knit scarf.
Create a slip knot and ch 27.
Hdc into the second chain from the loop and in each stitch all the way accross. Ch 2 and flip your work.
Hdc into each of the next 19 stitches. To start the creation of the button hole, ch 4. Skip 4 stitches and Hdc into the fifth. Hdc into the last two stitches. Ch 2 and turn your work.
Hdc into the first two stitches. Hdc four times into the chain gap space. Continue Hdc all the way across the row.
Bind off and weave in your ends.
Using a darning needle, sew on your button. The bulky yarn was a bit too thick for me to fit through my button holes, so I simply pulled apart the ply. This was the perfect thickness. You will want to sew your button to the right side of your wrap.
All finished with that part!
Now for the finger knitting part. Let’s get started.
Hold the tail end with your thumb and let it drape over your palm. Take the yarn (coming from the skein) under your index finger and drape it over your middle finger. Now tuck the yarn under your ring finger and bring it back around in front of your small finger.
Loop the yarn around your small finger and over your ring finger. Tuck the yarn under your middle finger and over your index finger. Then repeat step 1. You should have two loops on each of your four fingers.
Take the bottom strand and flip it over your index finger. Take the bottom strand and flip it over your middle finger. Take the bottom strand and flip it over your ring finger. Take the bottom strand and flip it over your small finger.
Continue to wrap your yarn around your fingers and flipping them over as in the previous steps.
After a few rows it will start to look like this.
Once you have reach the last 5-8 inches of your skein, bind off by taking the loop on your small finger and placing it on your ring finger. Then pull the bottom strand up and over your ring finger. Take the remaining loop on your ring finger and place it on your middle finger. Then pull the bottom strand up and over your middle finger. Take the remaining loop on your middle finger and place it on your index finger. Then pull the bottom strand up and over your index finger. Pull your tail end through the loop on your index finger and pull it tight.
Take your two tail ends and tie them together. You may either weave in your ends or simply trim them off.
Wrap up your scarf several times and use your buttoned wrap to hold it together. Lovely texture isn’t it?!
