How to Arm Knit a Scarf

If you read my sister's blog, this might sound familiar. I recently learned how to arm knit and if you like quick and easy results, you will want to do this, too!

At Thanksgiving, my mom and I learned how to arm knit and we had a ball. Once you start, it's hard to stop making them....until you realize you have nowhere else to store all of these scarves. Then, you'll want to give them to all your friends.

So, at my sister's house for Christmas, I taught her and my niece how to arm knit a scarf. By the time we were done, my niece had gotten an order to make one for a friend! The first time will take you some extra time just to understand how to do it, but after that it's only about 30 minutes of your time.

Don't plan on doing anything else after you start a scarf, though. You have to finish it before you can take it off your arms or it will unravel. So, go get yourself some yarn. Put your feet up and watch this tutorial. You'll be done in no time!

You will need to use 2 skeins of yarn for each scarf. Size 5 or 6 works best.

Thanks for stopping by! Can't wait for you to try this!!
