How To Use Your Fingers To Help You Knit Faster

Let your fingers work together while you knit!

Your fingers are amazing. Why aren’t you letting them help you knit?

Scientists have found that there are more nerve connections between the fingers and the brain than between any other parts of the body.

The fingers are the most delicate instruments available to you, yet what I see a lot of knitters doing is avoiding touching their knitting at all.

Because of this, they don’t have nearly enough control over their stitches – they knit slower, because they are afraid that the stitches will slide off the tips of the needles. Sound familiar?

Solution: Use your fingers to help put your stitches where they need to be and to stop them from falling off your needles, as I show in the video. This will not only make you knit faster but you’ll feel more comfortable.
