Arm knitting (in which big yarn loops are “cast on” just below the knitter’s wrists, then woven without needles to make chunky scarves and cowls) is the latest knitting craze. Especially popular among the teen and tween set, arm knit scarves and cowls knit up quickly (an hour or less) and require just a skein or two or of yarn.
This booklet offers all the basics for arm knitting, and includes twelveprojects to knit:
Your Team Scarf. Pom Pom Pretty Scarf. Knit Wit Cowl. Fun Times Scarf. Animal Instinct Fabric Scarf. Super Cozy Throw. Evening Sparkle Tie-On Collar. Purple Passion Shrug. Blue Coral Cowl. Soft & Cuddly Blanket. Green Goddess Cape. Sedona Smile Capelet.
The booklet features popular new Lion Brand, Bernat, and Red Heart yarns, along with clear instructions for each project and trouble-shooting advice for new to the craft knitters.
