Samantha Locking



My name is Sam, I'm a horticulturist from Ontario, Canada.

I love working with plants especially when it comes to propagation! Which is why the majority of my classes focus on that. 

However, I also have many interests outside of plants (business, knitting, building things) so, you never know what class might come up with next!


Reach Out!

If there are any plants you'd like to learn how to propagate or care for please let me know :) 

The easiest way to contact would be through class discussions or by commenting on past discussions I've created (at the bottom of this page) 

I look forward to hearing from you!

1. Introduction: This class and then it'd be walking you through how to fingernails a bracelet like this one here. This is a really simple projects you can do in-between larger projects. Or if you're trying to get kids interested in finger knitting, this project would be a great place to start. It's super easy and it doesn't require much as far as materials go, you'll only be needing three things. Now let's take a look at what you'll be needing in order to make your own bracelet. 2. Materials Required : As I mentioned, for this project, you only be needing three things. The first thing that you're going to need is yarn. I'd recommend using cotton yarn just because it's a lot more durable, so it's not going to fray if you happen to get it wet, we're washing your hands, or if you forget to take it off before jumping in the shower. The second thing you'll need is a pair of scissors. You can cut the yarn at the end. You just need two fingers. You're gonna wrap your yarn around to make your bracelet. Once you have your yarn and drew scissors, we can get started with making our bracelets. 3. Finger Knitting : To start off our bracelet, the first thing we're gonna do is take the tail end of our yarn, which is just the end that's not connected to our ball of yarn. We're going to take it and put it between our thumb and our index finger. Just hold it there like that. Then with our working end, the end that is attached to the ball still. We're going to take it and we're going to wrap that behind. Our middle finger. Will go in front of our middle finger, behind the index finger, and then in front of the middle finger. Now if you look, you'll see we have two stitches here and two stitches here. So then what we're going to do is we're going to take the bottom stitch on our middle finger and we're going to bring that up over top of what was the top stitch. Let it come off. And then we're going to take the tail end. Have that come up and in-between two fingers. And now we're going to keep the tail at the back while we're working. That is going to be our first stitch. And then we're going to take our working yarn. Again. We're gonna go in front of our index finger. We're going to go behind and around our middle finger. Again, we have our four stitches. And then we're going to take the bottom placed over the top stitch. Then we're gonna take this one and do the same thing. Then again, we're going to repeat that. It around our index finger, behind and around our middle finger. We're always going to start with the middle finger first. We'd go up and over, up and over. This is gonna be the entire pattern. So it's really simple. It's really quick and easy to do. And I'm just going to keep repeating that until I get to about ten stitches. Then I'm going to check to see if it's the right length for me. This would be my stitch. The tenth. Now once I do loops, I'm just going to pinch it here. Just check the link. That's a good size for me. Once your bracelet is that your desired length, can go ahead and cut the working end of your yarn so that we can cast off. We're going to take this tail now and we're going to place it underneath the loop on our index finger. Then we're gonna place it under the loop on our middle finger. Then we can just slide it off. We'll pull our bracelet tight. There we go. There is our bracelet. Might need some help having somebody tight for you. Now we can take a look at your class project. 4. Class Project: For your class project, I'd like to see you create a bracelet or two of your own using the methods that you learned in this class. Once you have your brace, it's made. Go ahead and take a picture of them and upload them in the project section, which you'll find just below this class.
