Finger Knitting FAQ

In this video, I share how to finger knit a chenille chunky blanket. No experience with crochet/knitting necessary!
The throw featured in this video is 3 ft x 4 ft
5 skeins Bernat Blanket Yarn (32 yards in each skein)
Starting chain approx. 20-25 chains depending on tension

For a 4 ft x 5 ft , I'd recommend 6 skeins.
Starting chain approx. 30 -35 chains depending on tension

I would highly recommend that you use a tape measure and chain to desired measurement.

Bernat Blanket Yarn - Chalk Pink

If you want to make with traditional knitting
25 mm needles are recommended for this yarn weight.
I like these:

Literally made my first blanket it took around 3 hours to make cause I kept making mistakes but literally worth it, this is the most warmest blanket I've ever had. I added a button to it so that it could wrap around me and I won't need to hold it. Thank you for teaching me this. 🙌❤

I've seen other tutorials, and while they're fine - yours is utterly perfect! You explain the general concept, give tips for adding skeins and maintaining the blanket, and it's concise enough for me to understand and follow. Thank you so much!

Out of all of the chunky blanket videos yours is the one I used the most and it helped me complete my very 1st blanket project! I was stumped about how to complete the final row and thankfully you explain it better than any other video I found. Thank you!

Had watched this several times and had taken a break from making blankets. Since Christmas is really soon, I decided to make my younger cousins small blankets. I’m 13 and turn 14 on Christmas Eve. Thank you so much for the video!!

Being a guy I find this method super easy. Just started one today and it is my first time EVER doing anything with yarn and I am really enjoying this method. Making a blanket for my Mom for Christmas. Thinking now I may need to make more for friends and family. TY so much for this amazing video.

Pattern was amazing and easy I downsized it and made a winter blanket for my baby due in January ☺️

I have never in my life done knitting, but after watching your video, I am trying to make my cosy blanked soon! It's the proof of how great teacher you are. Your instructions are clear and inspire the spectators!👏🧿💛

Actually this is a brilliant idea! I was thinking of knitting a blanket to give to my mother! But that would take too long....until I found this video! This is the best blanket I have ever seen!

Thanks to you ive been able to make 2 blankets this summer. The first time i was in a rush and did a speedrun to turn it into a gift. This time around with more time on my hands the blanket is a lot less looser, and i can already tell it will hold a lot of heat for the winter.
