While some more elaborate projects (this necklace comes to mind) are incredibly rewarding to conquer, I can't deny the simplicity of a do-it-yourself project that requires only 3 things and uses just your fingers. This DIY finger knit necklace is quick and a lot of fun to make. If I could figure out what to do with it, I'd sit around watching TV and making yards of finger knit cord from this stretchy yarn all day.
Tools and materials:
2 brass plumbing couplings from hardware store
To begin, leave a long 10 inch or so tail of the yarn in between your thumb and palm, with the rest of the yarn across your palm.
To finger knit, I recommend following a video like this one. It's way easier to follow a video than still photos.
Finger knit until you have long enough of a knit section (about 8 inches) and follow the video's directions for casting off.
Cut the yarn for a tail long enough to match the other loose end. You can stop here if you'd like, or...
...cut two pieces of yarn, each twice the length of the loose tails of the necklace. Thread through the last loops of the knit section and pull through half way.
Thread one of the couplings onto the yarn and knot in place.
