How to Connect Capital I in Cursive

Uppercase letter I in cursive ends at the midline making it difficult to connect to the next letter. Therefore, when writing a capital “I” in cursive and moving to the next letter, simply lift your pen after completing the “I” and then begin the next letter from where the “I” ends. This maintains the distinct form of the uppercase letter without attempting a direct connection to the following letter. See the example above in pink.

How to Connect Lowercase Letter I in Cursive

Lowercase letter i is easily connected to the next letter. In D’Nealian cursive, lowercase letters are typically connected to subsequent letters. To connect a lowercase i in D’Nealian cursive to the next letter, follow these steps:

  1. Write the lowercase cursive “i”: Begin at the midline, form a small loop or dot above the line, and then continue with a short stroke downward.
  2. To connect to the next letter: After completing the downward stroke of the “i,” create a small connector stroke, usually a slight curve or hook, that extends to the next letter’s starting point.
  3. Continue to the next letter: Begin the next letter from the connector stroke created by the tail of the lowercase cursive “i.”
