Pinspired Finger Knit Garland with Pom Poms

Pinspired Finger Knit Garland with Pom Poms by ngnrdgrl.wordpress.comAs part of my New Year’s Resolutions I made a Pinterest Resolution to actually make my pins. Crazy, huh?

This one was a twofer from my to do board. Two pins combined into one! I should get double brownie points on my Pinterest Resolution. Haha!

As soon as I saw the finger knit garland, I ran into the guest room and pulled out some yarn I had in the closet. In no time I had this cute garland!

My goal was to make a finger knit garland for the Christmas tree. I even picked up some white yarn to work with. I was a tad late so I have stashed the yarn with the Christmas stuff for next year.

This garland sat in the yarn bag for a couple weeks, but then I needed a White Elephant gift for a New Years get together. I thought it would be a cute, inexpensive (free? since I already had it on hand) gift.

I wanted to add a little flair, so I found a pom pom pin that I had seen all over Pinterest. I made a pom pom for each side of the garland. They are extra cute and super easy to make! 

Here are my two pinspirations:

Finger Knit Garland

Finger Knit Garland – Alison has a wonderful video tutorial on how to make these finger knit garlands. I love how she draped them around her Christmas tree. I want!

Pom Poms

Pom Pom Bookmarks – This Pom Pom tutorial by Design Mom is a really great tutorial with crystal clear pictures. I’m quite jealous of the quality of her pictures.

I love her finger knit garlands. Mine turned out a little looser than hers. I think she used a larger gauge yarn, but mine still came out cute.

I’m going to keep this in mind the next time I pick out yarn for a finger knit garland. When making the pom poms, I used 70 wraps instead of 90. You will want to count your wraps when making them so you are consistent.

What do you think of my Finger Knit Garland with Pom Poms?

I almost couldn’t bear the thought of giving it away. It was too cute! The person who opened it immediately put it on and wore it the whole night, so I consider it a success.

I am planning on making a longer one to drape over the window in the guest room. This yarn was picked out to match my updated guest room decor.
