Learn how to finger crochet to make a fun bracelet and a few other easy crafts with your favorite yarn, cord, or twine. You might be surprised at what you can make with a basic crochet stitch and your hands.
Here's a fun tutorial that you can enjoy with cording, yarn, or twine. It's also something you could probably make with young teens. Similar to the finger knitting shown in my chunky yarn wreath, this bracelet is created with a simple chain stitch used in crochet. However, instead of a crochet hook, you are using your fingers.

How to Finger Crochet to Make a Bracelet
- Craft Cord, Yarn or Twine
- Beads (optional)
- Basically, you start with a slipknot. That's your first loop.
- Then you make a chain stitch by holding the working yarn with your left hand and using your thumb and index finger of your right hand to grab the cord through the slipknot loop.
- Continue until you reach your desired length.
- Finish by slipping the yarn end through the loop and tying a double knot.
Below is a short video showing you how to make the bracelet.

After you tie off the cord you can add a decorative bead to each end if you like. This white cotton would be nice for summer, don't you think?
