I just learned to do this!YAY!
So I just made a necklace with this method,with the help of this tutorial. But I dont know the language,so I dont know how to call my new necklace.
Could anyone help me?How is this technique called on English?
I call this "finger-knitting"
Well done on learning a new technique...don't forget to post your creation
That is really cool and it doesn't look that hard to do, I might give it a go myself...
I looked up other videos under finger knitting (thats how I called it when I saw it too) but the videos where a bit different.More like weaving then knitting. But maybe this is some kind of a version of it?
Yeah, there's a few different methods of finger knitting.
I was shown this one on the video..it's useful if you're going a plane journey, now you're not allowed knitting needles on board.
That looks really interesting.And easy enough for even me..smile.
thanks for posting
Finger weaving is just a different name for finger knitting, try searching for finger weaving and see if this yields better results?
I googled finger knitting and found another video youtube that shows the exact same technique as the video you've posted.

I've just given this a go, it's really fun and easy. Mine is obviously not as neat as the ones in the videos, what with it being my first time but I do like it, it's a cool thin scarf and I have a lovely clip I can put on it to glam it up!! I did have a few problems with casting off, it kept unraveling so in the end I just tied it in a knot.
It took me 30 mins to do about 206 cms.
The video that Violetta posted in this thread I found more auccessful then the one I posted (yes that's right I've made a second one) it's neater and doesn't look as thin as the other one... Just so you guys know
Knitting needles SERIOUSLY aren't allowed on planes now? COME ON! How about getting with reality and just not allowing threatening people on board?? It's not like some 99-year-old gramma is going to take on the air passengers with a half-finished blanket.
I tell you... "political correctness" really makes me want to go on a rampage, especially when it bans innocent things like knitting just to make sure that some minority isn't "offended."
I've brought knitting needles on planes... as recently as this September. Not the gigantic metal ones, but my smaller bamboo ones. I imagine the metal ones can cause problems, but the bamboo ones are similar to pencils, IMO. I haven't had a problem anyway. I just make sure to take a project that has some serious work to it, and isn't just a set of loose needles.
The thing is V some nutcase might look at a knitting needle and think ah ha!!
But I can't see how much harm a knitting needle could do, you'd have to be pretty brutal to stab someone with one of those...
people are crazy.
