I have never been fond of knitting. I am self-taught under duress. When I was a senior at Drexel University, I decided to design sweaters and a knit skirt for my senior collection. I was able to use a knitting machine for the sweaters (which I loved!), but the yarn for the skirt was just to curly and loopy to work on a machine. So I bought a book and spent many hours knitting and unraveling and knitting again. I finished the skirt, but decided that knitting was not for me. That was until I discovered this on Pinterest. It is called arm knitting and you use chunky yarn. I made a scarf and actually had fun doing it. The total project took 20 minutes. Fun and fast? That is a win!

The Finished scarf
Wow! Very cool!! And my kind of knitting too.
It reminds me of the rainbow loom craze in yarn form!
Yes, that ARE similar. And those rainbow looms are so much easier than more traditional “friendship” bracelets!
I’ve gotta try that!!
Once I figured out the technique, it was so easy and fast! Now to buy different chunky yarn!
Say WHAT?? That is SO cool! I am going to have to try it!
It was really easy. I think I will use a chunkier yarn for the next one. 🙂
Video Please! Lovely 🙂
Here is the direct link to the video. It begins as a sales tool for the yarn, but if you keep watching, the technique is shown.
