How to Throw an Arm Knitting Party

Arm knitting—that's right, you don't use any needles; just your arms—has been adorning Pinterest for at least a year now, but it wasn't until last December's mention in The Wall Street Journal that the craft craze truly began. Since then, craft stores, yarn companies, designers, and yarn enthusiasts alike have jumped on the arm knitting wagon. This isn't that surprising; after all, yarnies love yarn crafts. What's unexpected, though, is how many non-knitters have rolled up their sleeves and put their arms in action.

This method seems to also speak to busy people who like the idea of making their own scarf, but can't commit to the time it would take to traditionally knit one. Arm knitting is super simple, and produces a scarf in less than 30 minutes! It's DIY-accessible; it's also really fun. And hey, what's fun for one person is a blast for a bunch, right? So grab some yarn and call your pals—it's time for a play date with a purpose. It's time, my friends, for an arm knitting party! Here's the scoop!
