Save and learning how to finger knit,
First thing you do is take yarn and put it over the back of your hand that has a tip. Turn your hand over, still holding the yarn under your thumb. Go under over your fingers. Go other around your pinky. Go around your fore finger one more time under over around the pinky, and back.
Now you should have two loops on the front of each finger that the first finger of your final loop is actually the tail that you put over your hand in there. Take your bottom loop, pull it up over the top loop and let it go on each finger. Always start with the pinky.
When you get to your fore finger, take the tail and just drop it over the back of the work. Now, take your working yarn, go round your index finger and go under over your fingers again so that your loops are above the loops remaining on your fingers.
Go all away round to the beginning and then hold the yarn with your thumb. Push the stitches down, and then once again, take the bottom loop, pull it up and over your finger on each one.
Push the stitches down, leave your yarn over, under, over, under, around, under, over, under. Continue until you have your desired length. What is should look like come at back is a set of ladders on your third and fourth fingers.
When your work is fat and long enough; say for a bracelet, you can also make a scarf, then it is hander cast stop. This time you do not need new loops onto your fingers. You let your working yarn hang off the back. Take the loop that is on your pinky and place it on your fourth finger.
Pull the bottom loop pop over and let it go. Take this loop again, put it on the third finger. Pull the bottom loop hop and over. Take this loop again, put it on your first finger. Take the bottom loop, hop and over.
Now, you are ready to cut your yarn with sharper scissors. Put your working yarn through the loop, the last remaining loop and pull it tight.
Your work should look like this.
At the bottom where you had your tail, you can also pull that very tight and then you should have two rows of chains and one row at the bottom.
