Finger crochet is a great way to enjoy crochet when you don’t have a hook on hand (or, when your hook isn’t the right size for your yarn). It’s also a great way to teach crochet, since your fingers only have to focus on the mechanics of the stitches and not on how to hold the hook.
What can I use if I don’t have a crochet hook?
You don’t have to use a crochet hook You have the choice of using a bobby pin or a hair beader. I have used the bobby pin technique and it works great. Crochet hooks are fairly inexpensive if you wan’t to use one, but if you don’t feel like getting one you really don’t have to.
Do I need crochet hook?
WHAT YOU’LL NEED. The best size crochet hook to start with is an H/8 (5mm) that is made of aluminum. This size is comfortable to hold in your hand, making the movements of crocheting easier than using a very small or very large hook. To work with a size H/8 (5mm) hook, you will need 4-ply knitting worsted weight yarn.
