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!

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
