Arm Knit Scarf with Lion Brand Quickie Yarn


  Arm Knitting is one of the fastest ways to create a beautiful scarf or cowl. Quickie yarn from Lion Brand was created specifically with arm knitting in mind. It’s a #6 Super Bulky Weight yarn, made of 74% Acrylic, 22% Wool, and 4% other materials – a blend that will be warm and cozy on even the coolest nights. Quickie is available in seven variegated colors.

One skein of Quickie yarn is enough to make a skinny cowl that can be worn long or wrapped around for extra warmth.

In the tutorial video, we used 3 skeins to create a much wider cowl.

If you’d prefer a cowl that’s somewhere in between these two, follow this pattern:


You’ll need two skeins of Quickie yarn.

Cast on 8 stitches.

Arm knit until about 36 in. (91.5 cm) of yarn remains. Bind off.


Hold the ends of the piece together and with your fingers weave yarn tail in and out through the ends to join them. Then weave yarn tail through stitches to hide the tail.

    question for you… I watched the video… arm knitting an infinity scarf. I understand the skinny scarf… 1 ball neededcast on 4 stitches. But for the 2 balls you cast on 8 stitches for a medium scarf, or 3 ball you cast on 12 stitches for the larger scarf. My question is you do not show how you add the next ball and continnue to knit.

    Hi Juanita,

    There are a few ways to add a new skein of yarn. The easiest is just to knot the ends of the skeins together and continue working, though this does leave you with a knot in the middle of your project. Here’s a video we made about adding on yarn in your crochet projects – you may find these techniques helpful: http://youtu.be/-mlCuXFKKyk
