Arm knitting has been a surprise (to me, anyway) hit technique in the knitting world for the past six months or more, and it’s become so popular that we’re starting to see books written on the subject. A new book on arm knitting that I really enjoyed is Arm Knitting by Mary Beth Temple.
I liked this one because, in addition to the expected scarf and cowl patterns you can get for free on the Internet, this book branches out into using different stitches, even doing a little shaping, and making a variety of scarves and cowls, yes, but also shawls and capes, which makes this a little more interesting as a collection.
There are also some tips to help you get started (I actually learned the technique from this book so I can assure you it’s sound).
I’m giving away two copies of this book; for your chance to win leave a comment on this post before the end of the day next Sunday, May 4.
Why don’t you let me know if you have ever tried arm knitting and, if you have, how you liked it. And if you’re new to the world of arm knitting check out my roundup of resources and tips for success over at About.
