Another type of cord can be made by knitting without needles.
When ODDknit talks about finger knitting in a pattern we mean the single stitch method described below. The result is very similar to single chain crochet.
It is also possible to finger knit using more than one stitch at a time (see links at the bottom of the page).
You will need:
- yarn leftovers
Tie a slip knot near the end of the yarn and slip it onto your index finger.
Hold the loose end of yarn with your other three fingers.
Wrap the yarn over your finger to form a second loop in front of the first.
Pull the first loop over the second and off your finger. Tug the ends of the yarn to tighten the stitch.
Repeat these steps to form the cord.
Most websites concentrate on finger knitting using more than one stitch at a time.
