I've seen so many big chunky scarves that were made by arm knitting. I've pinned a few examples and how to's but haven't tried it until today. Thanks to Julie sending me this:
Her ... it's you ... in Julie's Edmonton Oilers inspired arm knitted scarf, which is fantastic!! Juile used a you tube instruction video. The tutorial is called "Arm knit an Infinity Scarf in 30 minutes - The Original Tutorial - With Simply Maggie". It took me a bit to cast onto my arm ... actually I took a break and phoned you because I was frustrated. I watched a few more instructional videos and couldn't follow them either. So I went back to the tutorial that Julie sent me and played it over and over and over until I figured it out.
Once started, I discovered that it is really simple and works up quickly!! Next time I would use chunky yarn. I used what I had in my yarn stash. I should only have a material stash but I'm beginning to collect yarn too!
Here's the finished product:
I love it! I'm going to give it away as one of the pay it forward gifts. I signed up for the pay it forward thing in January and have a few more gifts to send out!
Here's the other cowl scarf I made to give away:
