finger crochet cowl

Hey everyone! I took a ball of Lionbrand Heartland Thick and Quick with me to an Angel baseball game. I always bring yarn because while going to games is fun the boys in my life enjoy them far more than I do! This project to only took me 1/2 of an inning to create so it you want something quick this is your project.


I only used 1/2 of the ball but you can get an extreme one by using the whole ball... it would be perfect for cooler weather.

I started by making a slip knot with my fingers.
Then I wrapped the yarn around my index finger and pulled through so that I was chaining with my fingers. See photos below. After you have finger crocheted the length you want, I did 1/2 the ball knot the end, wrap around your neck to the desired length and use about 6 inches to wrap around all the strands like the photos show. I weaved in my ends or you can use fabric glue to make it super secure. Any 5 ply or 6 ply yarn can be used to make this.I have a kids tutorial for finger crochet here
