Hello dears! I wanted to share a quick arm knit scarf pattern with you. I have an AMAZING arm knit pattern coming up in the next week or so, but I know you all have been clamoring for more. I would like to say we’re firmly out of chilly weather but don’t you know that chill hangs on for longer than any of us want! I am infamous for running out in a sweater and wishing I had a jacket. Rest assured, it’s not too late for a quick arm knit scarf to keep you cozy in this shoulder season.
This is just like your typical arm knit cowl, only you don’t sew it closed. Add tassels to the end and voila! The instructions are super easy and you know it doesn’t take long. Click on the links below in the pattern to get to my “how to” arm knit tutorial, or you can buy a handy dandy beautiful How to Arm Knit PDF here in my Etsy shop.
3 skeins of Loops and Threads Cozy wool in Thunder (270 yards total)
Arm Knitting How-To Instructions (Cast On, Knitting, Binding off)
:: Cast on 8 stitches.
:: Arm knit to desired length (reserving 10 yards of each skein to bind off and make tassels).
:: Bind off.
:: Cut 14 piles of six 8″ strands of yarn for tassels.
:: To make tassel, fold a 6-strand bundle of yarn in half and insert the loop through the end of the scarf between two stitches.
:: Pull the ends of the bundle through the loop.
:: Pull taut. Distribute seven loops across the bottom of each end of the scarf (14 total), placing one tassel in the space between each stitch along the end.
I miss you, Anne! <3

This is really pretty. Have not seen an arm knit scarf with tassels before. They add a little something extra.
Thanks Nancy, I appreciate that. Lots more gorgeous arm knit goodness to come!
I recently made your arm knit cowl and love it! However, I have just about zero knitting knowledge, and am wondering if this stitch has a name. Thanks in advance!
This would be called the “stockinette stitch” in traditional knitting.
Hi there! I love the look of this and want to get into arm knitting. What are the dimensions that this would make? I want to make a blanket with this tutorial and don’t know how much I would need and how to go about it. Thanks!!
HI, You need about 250 yards of the appropriate sized yarn to make a blanket – so with this yarn from the scarf, you would need 1000 yards total, arm knitting with four strands at time. I would cast on about 24 stitches, and then arm knit until you get to the desired width.
