Finger knitting is a fun and easy way to create beautiful and cosy blankets without the need for any special tools or equipment. I love that with just your fingers and some yarn, you can create soft and warm blankets perfect for snuggling.
Finger knit blankets can be used to add a decorative touch to any room in your home. Handmade finger knitting blankets also make wonderful gifts.
Below, I have gathered 15 amazing finger knitting blanket patterns. Whether you are a seasoned knitter or just a beginner, I think you will love these blanket knitting patterns just as much as I do.
What is a Finger Knitting Blanket?
A finger knitting blanket is a blanket that has been made using the finger knitting technique. This technique does not use knitting needles. Instead, the blanket is made by weaving loops of yarn through the fingers. This creates a series of rows and stitches that build up into a larger piece.
You can use finger knitting to make blankets in any size. Since finger knitting creates a chunky and textured knit, the blankets are extremely popular for home decor. They are also perfect for keeping warm and cosy on chilly days.
