    yarn and thread

    If someone makes a key chain strap with yarn by only looping around fingers, with no needles

    what is the verb that is appropriate?

    I knit a key chain with only my fingers

    I weave a key chain with only my fingers

    I crochet a key chain with only my fingers

    another question
    Yarn is uncountable right? Yarn is made of a long string(or thread), isn't it. If I cut the long thread and give to friends to make the strap, its the yarn countable or should I say

    I cut the yarn into to 5 threads. But I have also heard thread is not countable?
    Is there a better word for thread

    I made a key holder by weaving the thread on my fingers without using kneedles.

    The yarns she needed for the tapestry she is weaving are in the cupboard.

    We use yarn to create fabric.

    Can you pass me a needle and thread?

    This embroidery uses an extraordinary number of different threads.

    I need five threads, one for each person.

    Is there a better word for thread Not really, unless you are using something like a cord or leather or rope.
