Step 1: Step 1 - Tail
Take about 3" on yarn and leave it hanging over your thumb.
Step 2: Step 2 - Start
Now, you're going to take the rest of your yarn and do this:
- go under your pointer
- go over your middle finger
- go under your ring finger
- go over your pinkie
now you should have one loop on your middle finger and pinkie
- loop around your pinkie so the yarn goes under
- go over your ring finger
- go under your middle finger
- and go over your pointer
then repeat the steps once so that you have two loops on each finger.
Step 3: Step 3 - First Stich
Now take the bottom loop and bring it over the top loop, so that you have 1 loop on each finger, then repeat the under-over step until you have two on each finger again.
Step 4: Step 4 - Repeat and Repeat
Repeat the steps so that every time you have 2 loops on each finger, you make a new stitch, keep on doing that until your knitting is when held in a loop, easily fits over your head.
Step 5: Step 5 - Find the Back Side
Once your knitting fits, find the back side at the tip. (See pictures above).
Step 6: Step 6 - Make a Loop
This part might get a little tricky, so if you get stuck, check out the video at 1.44 mins. Take the tip, and back side up put your pinkie finger in the first stitch you made (use the photo as a reference) and knit as you would normally do, when you reach the pinkie, take the extra yarn you added and pull it over the top loop too. Every stitch from now will do the same thing, except you will put your pinkie in the next stitch. Continue until you have done 4 layers. (Seriously though, check out the video).
Step 7: Step 7 - Cast Off
Yay! you're nearly done! if you've done 4 layers of knitting and want more or less, you can do that too!
To cast off, have one loop on each finger (don't put your pinkie in a stitch)!. Then take the loop on your pointer and put it on the middle finger, you should have 2 loops on your middle finger, and none on the pointer, take the bottom loop and pull it over your finger, then you should repeat the step until you only have one loop left! Slide the loop off your finger and cut the excess yarn, leaving a tail, then pull the yarn through the loop and tug.
Step 8: Step 8 - Tuck in the Ends
Now take your needle and thread the tail, make some stitches on one side and cut off any yarn that might still be poking out. Do the same for the over tail. TAAADAAAA you're done! Hope you enjoyed this instructable!
