How to Finger Knit a Chunky Blanket: A Cozy DIY Project

How to Finger Knit a Chunky Blanket: A Cozy DIY Project

Discover the joy of crafting a chunky finger knit blanket, a project perfect for creating cozy, stylish additions to your home. This guide will lead you through each step of the process, from selecting your yarn to placing the final touches on your blanket. Suitable for beginners and seasoned crafters alike, this activity not only furnishes your living space but also offers a relaxing pastime.

How to Make a Finger Knit Chunky Blanket

Finger knitting a chunky blanket is an engaging project that yields a stylish and warm addition to your home décor. Here’s a detailed step-by-step guide to help you get started:

Selecting Your Yarn

Starting Your Blanket

  1. Making a Slip Knot:

    • Create a loop with the end of the yarn, then pull the working yarn through this loop to form a slip knot.
    • Place this knot on your thumb or wrist to begin casting on.
  2. Casting On:

    • Hold the tail of the yarn in your palm with the working yarn behind your fingers.
    • Weave the yarn through your fingers: over your index, under your middle, over your ring, and around your pinky.
    • Repeat this process in reverse, going back towards your index finger to create two loops on each finger.
  3. Knitting the Foundation Row:

    • Starting from the pinky, lift the bottom loop over the top loop and completely off your finger.
    • Repeat this process for each finger until only one loop remains on each.

Knitting the Body of the Blanket

During a chilly winter, I decided to craft a finger knit blanket for our family room. The chunky texture of the merino wool made the blanket incredibly soft and inviting. It quickly became the favorite lounging spot for our pets and kids during movie nights, proving that the effort was well worth it.

For an extra touch of comfort, consider placing your newly created chunky blanket on a Puffy Lux Mattress. The luxurious feel of the mattress combined with the softness of the blanket creates the perfect environment for relaxation and comfort.
