How To Finger Crochet A Blanket

Finger Crochet Blanket or Throw

At the moment I am really loving all things oversized and chunky. I have always wanted to learn how to finger crochet so I thought why not finger crochet a chunky throw? I love this Mondial Pronto Max yarn. It makes the perfect chunky throw! It is so easy to learn how to finger crochet and I have a YouTube tutorial and written instructions for you to learn as well. So check it out below!

You’ll be amazed at how quick it is to finger crochet! You can make this crocheted throw within a few hours! Finger crocheting is a fantastic skill to learn, especially if you have misplaced that pesky hook (seriously do you find that they just move out of sight all the time?) or you don’t have those large crochet hooks. All you have to do is use your fingers as the hook while still following the basic crochet technique.

I truly hope you enjoy the free pattern below.
