Finger Knit Infinity Scarf: Free pattern

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.

Step 6:

DSC_0021        DSC_0024       DSC_0025

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.

Step 1:

DSC_0030    DSC_0033    DSC_0034    DSC_0035

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.

Step 2:

DSC_0036    DSC_0038    DSC_0040    DSC_0041    DSC_0042    DSC_0043

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.

Step 3:

DSC_0044    DSC_0045    DSC_0046    DSC_0047

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.

Step 4:

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.

Step 5:

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?!
