I hold the yarn so it wraps around my pinkie, the goes over my ring finger, under my middle finger, and over my pointer. I do this for both english and continental.

But, hold the yarn however it's comfortable for you. You can wrap your pointer, all your fingers, or not at all. It's kinda a trial and error thing, but keep trying and you'll find one that works best for you.

I don't think there's any "right" way to hold the yarn. You have to try different ways until you find the one that suits you.
