How To Do It

You can use anywhere from two to four fingers. For the sake of simplicity, we used two fingers. First, hold the end of the string down with your thumb, then pulled the other end between your forefinger and middle finger.

Wind the yarn under your middle finger, between your middle finger and ring finger, and back over your middle finger, forming a loop. Next,  loop the yarn under your forefinger and back over it, forming a second loop. Then do the same thing again — under and over your middle finger, under and over your forefinger. Then pull the yarn between your forefinger and middle finger and let it go, allowing it to rest behind your hand for the next steps.

Now there are two loops on each finger. Grab the bottom loop on the middle finger,and pulled it over the top loop and right off your middle finger. Then do the same thing on your pointer finger: lift the bottom loop over the top loop and slid it right off. This makes your first stitch!

So with one loop on each finger, now you need to make another top set of loops. You do this by weaving the yarn under and then over your middle finger, and under and then over your forefinger. As before, then pull the working yarn down between your fingers and let it rest behind your hand.

On you continue, weaving and lifting bottom loops over, until you have the length you wanted for a bracelet.

To bind off, stop when you have a single loop on each finger. Then take the loop off the second finger, and plac it on the first finger.

Then pull the bottom loop over the top loop.

Cut  the yarn about 5″ away from the knitting, pull the last loop off your finger, and pull the string through the loop.

Pull each end of the yarn tightly, to tie off the piece. Then (with a little adult help) tie the strings together around your wrist to make a bracelet and trim the ends.
