There are now preference settings for fingers when using Apple Pencil in the latest versions of Sketch and Draw.
To access them:
In the lower navigation tap the Settings icon
From the menu that opens choose Preferences
Scroll down to Input Settings
Choose how you'd like the app to recognize finger touches
One note: At least one stroke with Pencil must be made in the app for the Preference to show up in Settings.
