Not too long ago I tried a recently popular and easy technique for knitting. This new fad involves your limbs rather than needles to knit…can you guess which one it uses ? Yes, you’re right! your arms!
Its no wonder that this approach to knitting has developed in that large needles and bulky yarns have become so popular in recent years. Arm knitting is a super quick and easy-to-learn technique that is favored when making infinity scarves. Once you get the technique down, its super quick and probably took me a total of 30 minutes to complete my infinity scarf.
What you will need:
-2 Skeins of thick yarn (I used Loops and Threads Cozy Wool in Sapphire)
-a pair of bare arms (roll up those sleeves and take off your bracelets)
-an episode of a television show on netflix of your choosing (because you will be done with the scarf in the time it takes you to finish that episode!)
I followed along with a Michaels Stores’ youtube video titled “Arm Knitting for Beginners” when creating my infinity scarf.
I bet If you use especially bulky yarn, you’ll kill two birds with one stone and get an awesome work-out!
P.S. Do you know of any other untraditional methods that have been used to knit/crochet or to create any other crafts for that matter?
