I love to knit and make homemade gifts for birthdays, anniversaries and Christmas. Well pretty much for any occasion I like to make a gift and give it with meaning. Last year I was making a ton of scarves for my aunts, nieces and the kids teachers as Christmas gifts. I was searching on the internet and came across - How to Arm Knit. I was intrigued and I am beyond happy that I found it, because it is so easy and you can have a completed Infinity Scarf in less than 30 minutes. Plus it is so super easy that is it intended for knitting beginners.
How to Arm Knit
Two strands of yarn (This means you'll need two balls of yarn of any colors)
Slip your dominant hand through the slip knot and make it snug on your wrist, but not too tight.
Grab the working yarn with your left hand (the right if you are a lefty) and with your thumb go over the working yarn (while still holding it in hand) and up (like in pictures) then with the two fingers closest to your thumb grab the tail.
Slip your hand between the working yarn on your thumb over and through the tail on your other fingers and back through the working yarn and tighten around your wrist. Do this same thing about 11 more times until you have twelve stitches on your wrist.
With your right hand grab the working yarn and slide the stitch closest to your hand off your hand and pull the working yarn through making a loop. Slide your other wrist through the loop. Do this again with all of your stitches including the slip knot (which is the same method as the rest of the stitches) do this until all of your stitches have been transferred onto your left (or right if your dominant hand is left) hand.
This step is repeated on the other hand as well just that you grab the working yarn with your other hand and put the loop on your right (or left if lefty) hand.
Keep going this on each hand until you have your desired length for your infinity scarf.
