DIY Arm Knitting - 30 Minute Striped Infinity Scarf


Hey gang! Are you ready for some more arm knitting action? It has been a little over a year since I posted my most popular YouTube video ever and I'm back with an updated DIY and updated how-to video!! My original DIY Arm Knitting - Arm Knit Scarf video was a smashing hit last Fall/Winter ringing in today with almost 3.1 Million views! I must say my video and editing skills have come a long way since that first video, but we all have to start somewhere, right?

Today's tutorial is a new way of arm knitting which includes steps on how to switch out your yarn to create a striped scarf. I really like this method because it creates a fun combination of colors when wrapped twice around your neck. You could even do ombre style which I think would look super cute! Make them for yourself or make them as gifts, either way I know you or your friend and family will love them!

SCARF SPECS:
10 to 12 stitches wide, depending on how wide you want it
20 to 25 rows, depending on how long you want it

YARN:
Lion Brand Yarn - Wool Ease Thick & Quick
Super Bulky #6
Butterscotch Yarn
Snapdragon Yarn
Cilantro Yarn

TIPS:
- The tails goes around your thumb when you are casting on and will get shorter as you go. This is why we start with a long tail.
- You can use one skein of yarn at a time or two
- You can use any size of yarn, but you will need size 6 if you want it chunky like the one seen in the video

    1. Sorry my previous comment did not post... Here it goes again!
      Dear Audra,

      I heard about arm knitting in my dance class and I decided to try it out. I was randomly looking on Pinterest and your tutorial really stood out to me. After watching your tutorial it inspired me to get my family and friends involved and begin arm knitting. :) I also have decided I am going to try arm knitting some head bands (It should work... Maybe if I don't do as many stitches?) I hope it will work :) If you ever arm knit some head bands please post a picture or two. You tutorial really was great! It was helpful, easy to understand, inspiring and it made perfect sense and was easy to follow along :) You have inspired me so much! I love your website as well and I really like how you are getting connected with people and trying to help people as much as you can.

      Thank you again! Take care :)
