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.
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.
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.
What type of yarn is used for finger knitting?
Working with bulky yarn produces the best results (the yarn in the sample is T-shirt yarn ), but you can hold two strands of worsted weight yarn together for a similar look. Using one strand still works, but the knitted cord is a lot looser and doesn’t have the density that some projects need.
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).

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.

Yes, you can. You can finger knit with thin or thick yarn. It will be thin though so you might need to double up the yarn.
