How to Sign the Letter K in Sign Language

Learning the alphabet helps in the process of learning and remembering other signs. Many signs in sign language are formed by combining hand shapes from the alphabet, so having a solid understanding of the alphabet makes it easier to recognize and remember those signs. The letter “K”s most popular use is most likely in the expression “ok”.
