Arm knitting is a fun, fast technique that creates a wonderfully open fabric using only your arms! The openness of the fabric can be altered by how tight or loose you choose to make your stitches.


The Cowl is arm knit as a simple rectangle with 4 strands of yarn held together.

Before beginning, wind each color yarn into 2 separate balls, so that you have 4 balls total.


COWLWith 4 strands of yarn held together, cast on 5 stitches following Lion Brand Yarn video instructions, "How To Arm Knit":

Arm knit until about 36 in.

(91.5 cm) of yarn remains.Bind off.

FINISHING Sew cast on edge to bind off edge to make Cowl.

Thread each yarn end into blunt needle, then weave through stitches.
