First attempt at finger crochet

I’ve had this marshmallow-soft ball of enormous-sized yarn sitting in the closet for a while simply because I didn’t have a hook large enough to use with it. Then, finally, I figured out how to use my finger as a crochet hook! I was surprised at how quick and easy it was. The technique I used was very similar to what this video shows.

The rectangle in the photo above took me under an hour and works great as a chair seat cover. Personally, I’m not a huge fan of super bulky yarn – I’m more into fingering-weight yarns and fine wearables – but jumbo yarns can be a nice option if you’re looking to whip up a quick handmade gift.

Happy crafting to everyone!

  1. Hello. Free market principles don’t apply to addictive substances. Sugar is a seriously addictive drug and therefore government intervention is needed to decrease the amount of public resources needed to combat its deleterious effects (obesity, diabetes etc.)


    1. Hi. I understand your point, but I believe this is a slippery slope. If you define sugar as a psychoactive substance because it triggers the brain’s pleasure center, you may also argue that the government should limit reality shows, video games, and online shopping, which can also be highly addictive.
