Lately, I’ve been attempting to arm knit. Please keep in mind that I’ve not even tried to knit since before I was maybe 10? That being said, Youtube was my friend when it came to learning how to do this. I have to admit, my first attempt ended up being more of a hammock then a blanket, but after I figured out how tight to keep the yarn and how thick of strands to use, it came out much much better.
If you’ve been really considering giving arm knitting a try, you have my vote for yes! It’s super easy, super fun, and doesn’t take much time at all. The blanket in the last picture took about an hour and a half to make and easily fits on my full size bed. Just remember: when it comes to arm knitting, chunky is key. Now I’m off to teach myself how to crochet. 🙂
