Arm Knit Shawl
Lion Brand® Country®
Exact gauge is not essential to this project.
1. 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. 2. The Shawl 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.
SHAWL With 2 strands each of A and B (4 strands total), cast on 17 stitches following Lion Brand Yarn video instructions, "How To Arm Knit":
Arm Knit Shawl Reviewed by Cynthia Allen on 2014-09-25
This was my first attempt at arm knitting, and I was pleased with the results. However, I needed almost double the amount of yarn to complete the project. Also, I found it helpful to wind the 4 strands into a ball before knitting the shawl (if not, it becomes twisted and tangled while working with it).
