DIY Arm Knit Infinity Scarf

This tutorial is from last year, but never got posted here. Arm knitting is really popular again, and it is actually super easy to do! It doesn't matter if you don't know how to knit - you can make this.

In this video, I'll be going over:
-how to cast on
-how to knit
-how to cast off / bind off
-how to stitch the 2 ends together to form the infiniti scarf

Before stitching the ends together to create an infiniti scarf, mine measured 34" Long x 12.5" Wide. It is 15 stitches wide.


*Keep in mind, a very bulky, heavy-weight yarn definitely works best for this project. You can try it with other types of yarn, but you'll get a different effect than what is shown here.

*If you have a scarf you like the length/width of, measure it and use it as a guide for this.

New tutorial! This one shows how to create this wax resist watercolor birthday card!

Anyone can create this card, even if you have no experience with watercolor. It is super simple and quick to make! 

Materials I used:
  • Very light colored heavy weight paper (white works great, too!)
  • Purple card stock
  • Prismacolor colored pencil, in white (crayons will also work)
  • Loew Cornell Watercolor Cakes 
  • Pentel Aquash Water Brush: buy here - affiliate (a regular paint brush is fine, too)
