A cursive capital K is easy to write. It’s almost exactly like a handwritten capital K. The lowercase cursive k isn’t exactly like the lowercase handwritten k, but they are very similar, making K one of the easier letters in the cursive alphabet.

After you become comfortable with writing the letter k in cursive, practice writing “ka”, “ke”, and “ki” as well. These are called “connectors” and will help you understand how cursive works to form words.
Writing an Uppercase K in Cursive
As you see in the diagram (above), begin the capital K at the top line, bringing your stroke to the bottom. Without breaking your stroke, bring it back up to the centerline. From the center line, take your stroke out to the right of the letter and to the top line. Once at the top line, bring your stroke back to the center and take your line out again but this time, take it to the bottom line, leaving a small tail to the right to either end the letter or connect to your next letter.
Please watch our short tutorial video showing exactly how to write both upper and lowercase.
Writing a Lowercase k in Cursive
Begin your stroke just below the centerline. Take your stroke to the top line, making a loop going back down to the bottom line. From there we will take the stroke up and make a loop below the centerline. From there we will take our stroke and loop it out to the right to either end the letter or connect to your next letter.
