DIY Finger Knitting - 30 Minute Boot Cuffs


I'm back with a new knitting tutorial! Excited? I am! I made those boot cuffs in 30 minutes with just my fingers!...Okay you'll need some scissors, buttons, needle and thread too, but all of the knitting was done with just my fingers! Pretty cool, huh?

I had spotted some boot cuffs that I wanted for Christmas (which I still hope I get lol), but you know me, I thought to myself, "I can make those!"...or something similar.

We've been iced in here in Texas for the past few days, yes, I said Texas, so I haven't been able to buy any knitting needles (or send my husband to get them, since I'm on bed rest). Being bored on bed rest AND iced in will lead you to some pretty clever ways of teaching yourself a new skill, so what did I do? I taught myself to knit with shish kabob skewers! It worked, but the things were so dang pointy of course the yarn snagged, so I switched to knitting with my fingers!

I've seen finger knitting before, but never done like this! Using a simple Knit Stitch (forgive me if you've been knitting for years and I'm totally wrong) I created my very own boot cuffs, fo free!! I already had all of the supplies and all the time in the world. I think they turned out pretty darn cute!

Of course you can accomplish this using knitting needles or crochet hooks with a much tighter knit result, but I like the loose and chunky look. If you like it too, take a peek at the YouTube video I created below for all the steps to create your very own boot cuffs. Happy "knitting!"


Yarn used:
- Lions Brand - Wool Ease Think and Quick - Grey Marble

FAQs Answered:
- To achieve this look you will need 1 skein of #6 super bulky yarn
- Your tail will get shorter when casting on, but should not get shorter once you start knitting
- My dimensions: 8 stitches x 20 stitches (depends on how large your calves are)

  14. A lot of lending institutions deal with mortgage brokers whitby as a brand-new financing application, and also if the financial institution has actually raised its needs regarding credit rating, yet your credit history is still listed below that brand-new minimum, you do not get approved for refinancing.

  15. I was a HIV-AIDS patient and I got it from cheating on my wife. It was sort of a payback but a week later I was told by a friend that the person who I cheated with had the HIV-AIDS virus and did not tell me. I was so stupid by not using a condom I thought since he was an old school friend he was trustworthy. But I was wrong. I cried and cried. Two days later, I got a phone call from my friend and he told me about a person who is known by another friend, who can help me. I could not let my wife know what I was going through. I finally got his email address: oseremenspelltemple@gmail.com and I emailed this man my story and he replied me immediately saying i should be calm and told me that everything will be OK. I could not come to terms with what I was hearing but then I concluded it did not matter because I was so broken I just needed help. I was going out of my mind literally. I was confused with what he was telling me, but I listened. He told me about some materials i need to buy that he needed to cast the spell and I said OK. I bought the materials to him, I sent down my picture to him and my positive result sheet and he replied me that i am going to be negative under 3days. I message Him every 2hours for 2day and I knew he thought that I was crazy but I did care I needed a shoulder. Behold, the third day he messaged me i should go for a test that i will be negative. My marriage could be broken because of a stupid mistake and my life was on the line. I remembered when I was going to get the results of my re-test I called him up again and told him that I was going to get my results today and his reply was “so" and that everything will be as he explained. I knew then that he was getting tired of me calling him, maybe I was wrong. Well I got my results and the first person I called was him - again. As he said hello I started to cry and cry. I could not believe it. I was given a second chance in life.This man is a great spiritual HIV/AIDS healer, his healing spell on aids healing is very powerful .please brothers and sister, contact Dr Ose oseremenspelltemple@gmail.com
