Knit a blanket... without knitting needles!

Arm knitting is a funky new trend for anyone who wants to knit items quickly and easily without the hassle of using knitting needles. In this project we show you how to arm knit a warm, cosy throw blanket for cold winter evenings.


It's so easy to make a cosy throw or blanket - without knitting needles. Arm knitting is perfect for those who don't want the hassle of using knitting needles and allows you to create items in the time it takes to watch your favourite TV show.


Experiment with different types and colours of yarn to create unique arm knitted decor accessories for your home.
