Finger Crocheting

I first learned how to finger crochet in Girl Scouts and I’m pretty sure I made 50 crochet ropes that day! They’re super easy to make once you get the hang of it and can be used as accents, coasters, and to hang signs. Here are the steps to make your own chrochet rope. Scroll down to see the video!

Begin with 2 pieces of yarn. Tie a knot at one end.
Hold the knot with your thumb and middle finger. Using your index finger, make a loop. Hold the other strand off to the side.
Using your other index finger, go through the existing loop in the same direction as that index finger.
Hook the left strand with your left index finger
Pull the new strand through the existing loop.
Now you have two loops
Move the knot over to your left hand. Hold it between your middle finger and thumb, just like before.
Pull the original loop tight. Now you have a new starting point.
Stick your right finger through the left loop.
Grab the right strand and pull it through.
Now you have two loops again.
Pull the left strand tight and repeat this process until it’s the length you want.
This is what it will look like after you’ve chrocheted a bit. Now it’s time to close your rope.
Pull your second strand through just like before.
This time, pull it all the way through your existing loop.
Pull the loop closed and it will make a knot! Now you have a rope πŸ™‚

Now that you have the basics, you can make as many ropes and coasters as you want πŸ™‚ As always, if you take any fun pictures of any crafts, tag me on Instagram @SmileMakePeopleWonder and use the hashtag #DandelionSmiles. Don’t forget to subscribe so you don’t miss out on the next exciting idea.
