What kind of yarn do you use for finger knitting?
The best yarns for finger knitting are styles which are chunky, thick to touch and easy to grab hold of. Using a thick yarn will help bulk out the project, fill the gaps between stitches and be easier to hold and work with.
How do you cast on with finger knitting?
Hold the yarn between your thumb and your index finger. The tail end (loose end) of your yarn to the left. The working yarn (still attached to the ball) to the right. Weave the working yarn (going from left to right) over your index finger, under your middle finger, over your ring finger and behind your little finger.
How do you start finger weaving?
- Step 1: Turn your non-dominant hand so that your palm is face up.
- Step 2: Take hold of the yarn in the back of your hand.
- Step 3: Pull the string around your pinky and then weave back in the opposite direction.
- Step 4: Let the end of the yarn hang behind your hand between your thumb and index finger.
Is knitting harder than crochet?
Again, speaking in generalities, crocheting is a bit easier than knitting. When you want to fix a mistake in crocheting all you have to do is pull out the yarn (called frogging). But when you need to fix a knitting mistake, you have to undo the knitting (called tinking).
How do you finger knit for beginners?
Slip the end of a ball of yarn between your thumb and index finger, pinching to anchor the yarn as you knit. Then loop the yarn around your pinkie finger and weave it through your fingers. Loop the yarn around your index finger completely, and weave it toward your pinkie. Make a full loop around your four fingers.

Is finger knitting easier?
Finger knitting is a fabulous and easy craft for kids of all ages (from around the ages of 5 and up, but younger kids may be capable also). It’s a simple stitch, requires no experience or expertise, no equipment other than yarn and scissors and it is much, much quicker and easier than traditional knitting.
Can you finger knit a blanket?
The Velky blanket comes with instructions for arm knitting. So I opted to make my blanket by finger knitting. My instructions are a bit different from what they supply, simply because I chose a different knitting method. But my blanket knitted up the same way and ended up the same size 70″x 50″.
Can you hand knit with regular yarn?
You can arm knit a blanket with thin yarn, but it requires using multiple strands. The look of the blanket won’t be the same if you use just one strand of thin yarn so you need to make your own bulky yarn.
