When I go to print the pattern, there's a p2 that says "How to finger crochet" Where is that?

Hmmm, I'm not seeing what you're seeing when I go to print the pattern. But if you're looking for tutorials on finger crochet, if you type "How to finger crochet" into google, a bunch of videos and helpful tips pop up. I'm also working on a page about it for AllFreeCrochetAfghanPatterns, so stay tuned! I hope this helps! Let me know if I can answer any follow up questions. Thanks!

Oh this is Great! My family teases me all the time that I am always crocheting. Now that I have learned how to Finger Crochet, I can crochet anytime. This pattern for the Finger Crochet Afghan Pattern is well done and the video how to is so greatly done, anyone can now crochet. So sweet! So many ideas are running through my head now that I know how to finger crochet. Thank you so much for sharing this free how to finger crochet.

I really wanted to be able to do this, but unfortunately it is not for me. My fingers would just not cooperate with me enough to make it work. It is a great project, and would be an excellent addition to an art curriculum in schools. It just isnt great for people with fine motor difficulties.

Who would have thought that finger crochet could be so beautiful? I certainly had no idea but now, having seen this, it is something that I am absolutely DRIVEN to make! And using the recommended bulky yarn means it is going to wonderfully cozy and warm in winter. I can not wait to get started and my teenage daughter is now quite fascinated by this too so it seems we each be making one at the same time which is going to be lovely!

I will definitely be trying this! I'm an experienced arm knitter, but I've never tried finger crocheting. Love it.

What fun easy if you are a crocheter or not. Can't wait to try!
