Knitting. You either love it, or you dread the idea of touching a ball of yarn. Traditional knitting is a major time commitment. Those tiny knitting needles take hours to produce a full-length scarf. Not to mention making a blanket! How does one insanely long piece of string turn into thousands of tiny, intricate loops?
This how-to video by Simply Maggie gives you all the nitty-gritty details on how to make forearm fashion a reality.
Drop the Knitting Needles
Forget everything you used to know about knitting from shelling out tons of money for artisanal fabric arts to those clicking needle sounds.
Arm knitting is here. It’s fast, requires no tools and makes adorable winter wear.
First, get two large skeins of bulky, soft yarn. Avoid the thin stuff so you get a full texture on your finished scarf or blanket.
You can stick with a single color or mix it up with complimentary colors.
The only other tools you’ll need are your arms, which essentially serve as gigantic knitting needles, and about 30 minutes.
As you pass the yarn back and forth from one arm to other, you’ll feel a little bit like you’re playing Cat’s Cradle, which is pretty fun when you think about it.
