30-Minute Arm Knit Infinity Scarf

Project: 30-Minute Arm Knit Infinity Scarf

I have recently learned to…. KNIT! It’s very exciting for me, because I’ve been a self-taught crocheter for about ten years but never so much as picked up knitting needles. Even though every Thursday evening for the last 7-8 months, I’ve gone to a Knitting Group. I know. How could I wait that long to learn? Well, I had a lot of projects to crochet first!

Finally, when the rush of holiday projects was over, my friend Christine told me it was TIME to learn to knit! She taught me a couple basics and I’m in the midst of my first project right now. Because I was so excited to learn, I thought I’d try to tackle arm knitting (which previously scared me) and this was the result!

I love this scarf so much! It’s made with just two skeins of chunky/bulky yarn and your arms, so the materials needed to make it are few. I tried several tutorials that I just didn’t quite get until I found this awesome one by Handimania. It was very easy to follow and within a half hour I had my favorite scarf to date! Check out their video below and try it out! It’s the perfect weekend project, since it takes less than an hour. 😉

The photo I took may look like a small-ish infinity cowl, but it’s not at all. It’s very long! But I like it that way. It’s pretty awesome. I encourage you to give arm knitting a go. If you do, share pics in the comments of your projects! I’d love to see them!

  3. Nice scarf! I like the different yarns you used.
    I can’t crochet OR knit, so you’re way ahead of me, even if you waited 7-8 months to start. =0)

    1. It was actually all one yarn! It came that way! Isn’t it cool? 🙂

  4. I love arm knitting! It’s so easy, anyone can do it! The scarf looks beautiful though, it’s the perfect chunky knit! #cuticlepengiveaway
