I have had fun playing with simple finger looping in the past, but have not dabbled in the more complex 'recipes' so I am in no position to say for sure whether or not those braids are finger looping and the patterns do not appear in either of the books I have. Jean has done far more finger looping than I have, but she is away from home at the moment so is not in a position to look at her samples.
I've been puzzled for a while by the prevalence of finger looping - on the face of it is an unlikely technique to have developed. Why decide to put loops on your fingers instead of manipulating individual threads? Could these braids be a form of plaiting? (cf Devon's giant plaits introduced a few years back). We each need another lifetime to experiment with such things!
