I get tons of compliments and people cannot believe I made it myself in just a few hours!
I first tried my hand at knitting this past January and quickly became frustrated with the slow as molasses pace and my inability to understand the fundamentals THEN I stumbled upon this little gem on Pinterest: Arm Knitting Tutorial – How-To | simplymaggie.com. and I was hooked. Not only is this a fun, easy, and quick way to knit it’s also an awesome way for a newbie knitter to learn the fundamentals!
Thanks to Maggie I have a gorgeous collection of homemade chunky knit scarves in colors I love AND I figured out the ins and outs of knitting! Win-Win 🙂 Now if only my budget allowed for more yarn…lol
I used Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick Yarn in Constellation for my scarf pictured above.
You can see how wide the loops are due to using your arms as the knitting needles
Here is Maggie’s how-to video to get you hooked on knitting:
