A few weeks ago one of the sweetest (and cutest) bloggers on the block, Lauren from The Little Things We Do shared some pictures of her adorable baby shower. Her friends used finger-knit garlands as decorations and I immediately became obsessed. I had to know how to do it…and so the research began. I tried many different methods, types of yarn, watched lots of tutorial videos, and then arrived at the method I liked best. My crazy obsession with this absurdly easy craft is now going to benefit you. Or at least I hope so.

Above I’m wearing the garland as a scarf. It makes a fabulous child’s scarf. And here are some pictures to inspire and entice. To make this garland I drilled holes (I know, I’m insane) in the deer and used fishing wire to tie them on. The trees I just tied right on.

It’s really easiest to learn if you watch a video…so here you go. A video of me.

And here are a few shots of a garland (well 3) I made for my tree!
