Video Crochet Doll Fingers Tutorial


A brand new, 2014 tutorial for crocheting doll fingers and a thumb plus a new video too! I also include a written pattern this time, however, this is for a hand that has 18st in it. My hope is that after watching the video you will be able to go on and
make any size hand.

For this particular arm I used the following pattern:
You can make the arm longer by adding more rows between 3 and 5 or 7 and 10.
1) magic circle or adjustable loop with 6st (6)
*begin with a long starting tail that you will use later to sew the arm in place
2) 2sc in each (12)
3-5) 1sc in each st for 3 rows
6) 1sc in next 4st then 2tog (10)
7-10) 1sc in each st for 4 rows
11) 1sc then 2sc in next st (15)
12) 1sc in next 4st then 2sc in next st (18)
13) 1sc in each st then make fingers
as instructed below or follow along with the video.

1st finger:
row 1) 1sc into the 5th st from the hook counting backwards, crochet across the hand creating the first section, Add one more sc into the 5st you just went into. There is now 6st in the section and this completes row 1 of the finger.
You can make the fingers any length but for this pattern each finger has 4 rows.
rows 2-4) 1sc in each st for 3 rows (6)
sl st across the top of the finger to close it up and f/o and hide yarn tail inside finger

Put 1sc in the next 2st then 2sc across the hand into the 2nd st from the finger. Put 1sc in the next st then sc across into the loops where you pulled the yarn through.
