What You Need:

This scarf is a really quick and easy project. You’ll only need about an hour of time, a little practice, and of course, your two arms. I’ve found the best results in using two strands of bulky yarn at the same time. Here are a few of the bulky weight yarns I recommend:

You’ll need two skeins of bulky yarn at approximately 100 yards each.

Arm Knit Infinity Scarf Cowl Measurements

The infinity scarf/cowl is the best project to start when learning how to arm knit.

Your finished scarf/cowl will measure approximately 60″ long (before joining) and 12″ wide.


How to Arm Knit Instructions: Part 2

Step 1: With the slip knot on your right arm, put your left index finger and thumb between the working yarn (connected to the skein).

Step 2: Grab all the strands with the rest of your fingers in the left hand and twist up.

Step 3: With your right hand, grab the yarn that is in the front of your thumb and pull it up.

Step 4: Reach through that loop and grab the yarn in front of your left index finger.

Step 5: Pull the yarn from your index finger up through the loop and slip your right hand through. Pull snug to your arm and make it the same tightness as the slip knot. Repeat until you have 10 loops on your arm.
