Arm-knitting tutorials are available through YouTube, Michaels and Yarnspirations.com. Arm-knitting typically involves using two or more strands of a chunky-weight, bulky-weight or ribbon-style yarn to produce thick, open-weave accessories such as cowls and scarves.
Because the projects use multiple strands and large stitches, they work up in as little as 30 minutes. If only one skein of yarn is available, it's possible to wind the yarn into separate balls before starting the project, yielding multiple strands. Arm knitters can begin the project with either arm because both arms are involved in making the loops, so it doesn’t matter if stitchers are left-handed or right-handed.
