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 6

Step 1: Lay your scarf out flat, ensuring that it is not twisted, with the pretty side facing up. With the working yarn that you just cut towards the top, match up the ends and gently stretch to line up the widths if needed.

Step 2: With the working yarn, pull it under the first line of stitches from the right where you see the first “V”. Pull the yarn all the way through. Now find the first stitch on the left side and pull the yarn under it all the way through.



Step 3: Continue this all the way to the end, leaving the stitches loose enough to blend with the rest of the scarf, you should have four strands of yarn, two from the original tail and two the working yarn you just used to bind the ends.


Step 4: Finally, turn the scarf over and weave the 4 ends into the binding and cut the end.
