To crochet using your fingers only, use the same procedure as when using a hook, but just use your fingers instead. You will end up using your forefinger as a "hook" holding the parts of the stitch on your finger, and "hooking" your finger to "draw through" the material to make the stitch.

I would hazard that the "best" stitches to make using a finger crochet technique would be the shorter stitches--slip stitch, single crochet, half double crochet, and double crochet. I think that with taller stitches, you might begin to not have room on your forefinger to "hold" the loops necessary to make the stitches.

Look at the attached video link and see finger crocheting single crochet stitches is being done.

You can't crochet with your finger, but you can knit with your fingers.

No, you can only crochet with a crochet hook. Answer Crochet is done with crochet hooks (they come in many sizes) not knitting neeldes. But you can also use your fingers (finger crochet) or there is also some thing called Knooking which uses a tool that has a crochet hook on one end and a knitting needle point on the other.

If you mean do you have to purchase a crochet hook, no you don't. You can make your own. You CAN make a chain without a crochet hook, just using your fingers (just did it myself). Working into the chain without a tool would be more difficult, and would probably be more frustrating than fun.

There is no collective noun for the noun 'crochet', in which case a noun that is suitable for the situation can be used, for example a pile of crochet, a bag of crochet, a bazaar of crochet, etc.

You can crochet a chain stitch with your fingers, but doing other stitches will be impossible unless your work is very very loose. It is technically possible to crochet with a knitting needle, but it's not really worth all the fiddling and frustration.Other contributors have said:Yes! You can. It is actually easier to crochet without the hook, in my opinion. Just make a slip knot on your finger and pull the long string through the loop, and pull on the long string to make the loop smaller.not for me! you weave the yarn through your finger when your using the hook, and you can't do that when the knots on your finger. plus the hook has to twist, but theres no hook on your finger. although one time i crocheted a whole scarf with my fingers.

There is no homophone for the word crochet.

Single crochet and double crochet are just different crochet stitches. You can use whichever you prefer, or whatever the pattern calls for if you are following a pattern.

start with a slip-knot. reach through the loop with your fingers and grab yarn through. pull tight and shorten the new loop. Might be easier if you already know how to crochet or can have someone who knows show you. hooks aren't very expensive and since it's hard to do anything more than a basic chain with your fingers, you might be better off running to your nearest Walmart and spending $1.50 on one:) there's tons of links online with videos of how to crochet. try diynetwork.com to start with

First you need to understand the basic stitches like single crochet, half double crochet, double crochet, and treble crochet. After that you need to learn what all the abreviations in your crochet pattern mean like ch stands for chain, beg is beggining, tog is together ect.
