A cursive capital F is also similar to its capital handwritten form like many of the other letters. The lowercase cursive f is the more difficult one of the two.

Now, let’s review how to make a cursive f.
Cursive F: Writing a Capital Letter F
As you see in the diagram (above), begin the capital letter F on the top line, creating the top line of the F. From the center of the top of the F, bring your stroke down to the bottom line, making a small tail off the left side. After, cross the f in the center with a single line.
Please watch our short tutorial video showing exactly how to write both upper and lowercase.
Writing a Lowercase f in Cursive
Begin the lowercase f below the center, dotted line. Bring your stroke up to the top line and loop back around the left side and down below the bottom line. Once below the bottom line, bring your stroke back up the right side and make a small tail off of the letter, towards the right to connect with the other letters.
Lowercase f may take some practice but please refer to our video on how to exactly and proper write the letter.
