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 5

Step 1: With all the stitches on your left arm, create two stitches on the right arm as depicted in Step 3.


Step 2: Drop the working yarn. With your left hand, grab the stitch closest to your elbow on the right arm and pull it over the other stitch.


Pick up the working yarn again and knit one more stitch on your right arm (you should now have two stitches again). Drop the working yarn and pull the stitch closest to your elbow over the other stitch. Continue this process until all the stitches are off your left arm and you have one remaining stitch on your left arm.

Step 3: Remove the last loop from your right arm and pull to make a large loop (this protects from accidentally pulling out previous stitches).


Step 4: Measure out 4′ on the working yarn and cut. Pull the working yarn up through the large loop you created and pull tight like a knot.
