arm knitting:dos and donts

Arm knitting is a popular new craft that I have just picked up on. You basically use your arms like giant knitting needles. You don’t really need any expirience with real knitting. Today I’m going to share some tips on arm knitting.

First of all, you usually always use several strands of #5 or #6 yarn. Some good yarns to use are Lion Brand Quickie, Paton’s Cobbles, Bernat Blanket Yarn, Courture Jazz, or Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick and Quick.

Don’t let the loops be too loose or too tight on your arm. Try to find a middle ground. Also, if you want to take a break, you can take the loops off your arm and tie them with a peice of yarn or thread. You can also watch a video on how to do that here.

Anyway, I hope you learned something and might try arm knitting soon. Feel free to share your arm knitting expirience in the comment section. Thanks!

Pssst! Hey crocheters! Did you know there’s arm crocheting too?!
