Have fun doing things yourself
A new craze has hit the knitting world and we‘re not ashamed to admit that we’re totally obsessed. Arm knitting has hit with a bang, and once you understand what it’s all about, it’s easy to see why it’s such a big hit. Firstly, you don’t have to be a master knitter – novices can pick this up with ease. Secondly, there are no needles or hooks to bother with! All you need is yarn and your two arms. Instead of that very structured look that you get with conventional knitting, you’re able create chunky-looking infinity scarves with very loose stitches, for a more casual and informal look.
This big stitch merino wool makes for a softer, warmer and even chunky cowl. Once you’re a pro and arm knitting scarves every 15 minutes, you’ll have more wiggle room to experiment with different types of yarns. This double scarf is very bulky, so it’s perfect for the when the cold really sets in. It should only take you about half an hour to get this done!
Arm knitting isn’t just limited to scarves; you can even make the perfect winter blanket. It does take a little bit longer (about 45 minutes), but it’s definitely worth it! The yarn used here is exceptionally thick so it’ll be a really nice soft and warm blanket when you’re done. For this blanket, the arm knitter uses chunky yarn at the same time. Make sure to use super bulky yarns so that the blanket actually fills out, especially if you want the blanket to actually fulfill its purpose.
