What is the recommended method to clean it. If not, then for her birthday. Yours is the BEST! The blue one, below.
I am so excited to share this Arm Knit throw. I have seen similar throws at Pottery Barn and knew I could recreate one myself for a lot less! Blankets make the house feel cozy and they are highly sought after around the house. I have been knitting for years and it just seemed a like a fun project to take on. So I put together three quick videos which are very basic but give you the idea of how it works.
If you knit this should come pretty easy! If you knit this should be an easy project! I purchased 6 six skeins of the yarn in white. I cast on 18 stitches which about all I had room for. I used the entire six skeins. I was surprised at how warm the blanket is.
Next time I would probably squeeze more stitches on my arm to make it a bit wider. You can see how I transformed the chairs used in these photos here.

Looking for another great knitting project? You can read that post here. Oh, how beautiful, cozy and fun! I made a throw in a college years ago with a broom handle!
I so love this. Going to attempt to make one so my home will be cozy and comfortable like yours. Thanks for sharing your talent. This should be interesting: My mother used to knit and crochet which she loved. She had to give it up because of arthritis. This sounds like a chance for her to accomplish knit again. It will make her so happy! Aw man, I love this! But this throw looks amazing! Might give it another go.
Beautiful cozy inspiration for the coming winter days! It looks so soft and fluf…. I love arm and finger knitting! So easy, you always have your tools handy. Great throw, look so comfy and snuggable! Thanks so much for linking up, your blog is beautiful!!! This is so gorgeous! Could you tell me how much the blanket weighs? I am trying to find a chunky knit alternative to a weighted blanket.
My boyfriend is originally the one who saw this post and said it would be a good side project for me. Thanks for the tutorial videos also! I just bought more yarn to make another one. I could not find a pattern anywhere that stated the needle size. Now I know why lol. I discovered arm knitting last winter and have made several infinity scarves.
Talk about almost instant gratification! Does this yarn leave a lot of fuzz behind on the furniture? How do you wash the blanket? I have to make this, the young woman in my sons life mentioned the roving blanket… i explained the issues… but this looks amazing. Is the yarn washable and durable…. I watched your Youtube tutorial and you said you used about 50 stitches, but in the directions you wrote that you used about 18 stitches.
That wool looks like it would be extremely heavy to hand wash and impossible to hang or dry flat because it would stretch out of shape when you picked it up but in the washing machine, it may felt or get caught on something and be destroyed!
Do you just not ever wash it or spot treat it and hope for the best? Has anyone ever made one and washed it? I have not washed it. We use it with care and have enjoyed it for almost a year! Can anyone tell me how many skeins of yarn I would need for a throw size one of these? Can someone advise on the average skein. This will be my first arm knitting project so please help. You could do 7 or 8 but when you cast on there is only so much room on your arms so it will be longer than wider.
My concern with the super chunky yarns is how to successfully join the skeins. What technique did you use? What is the recommended method to clean it.
Could you upload a video. This would be my first time doing this! Yours looks wonderful by the way!!! Sorry Susan I had to go back and reread haha! Have you had a problem with shedding? Hi there, how many grams are the skeins? The pattern calls for a total of 18 gram skeins of chunky yarn.
What is your finished size? Is this every single change or just every third chain. Really want to make this as it seems like a great pattern so far. You need to work in each chain of the chain 3. So in the first chain you do one DC, in the second chain do another DC, and then chain 3 and do a slip stitch in the third chain.
Hope I can make time for it. If not, then for her birthday. Thank you for sharing the pattern. Could you please tell me, if bulky weight yarn is used does this throw turn out to be a lot heavier than if worsted weight yarn is used?? What are the measurements of the throw? I am having trouble finding it. Is that the outlet near Wilson station? There is also a fantastic location for crafters in the east end of Toronto called The Yarn Guy.
They offer free classes upstairs and boy! Is this even possible do you think or am I crazy? I loved this stitch. Thank you for sharing. I would like to make a little dress with this stitch. Do you know if possible how to make increases with this stitch? Thank You for sharing this pattern. I have been making up my own patterns using only sc or dc or a combination of both. I wanted to find something that looked pretty but was easy to work.
This pattern is very easy to learn and is so very pretty. I am using only one color and have made it large enough to top a queen size bed.
Hi there, could you please help me. How do I print out this pattern. I sure could use your help. I love your patterns so much. I want to give this pattern to my mom, she is such a good crocheter. Hi Carol, try this link: No, here is a link for how to do the slip stitch: Is this pattern written in American crochet terms, or British if that makes sense?
I have admired this pattern for a while. Beginner so this may a little to much. I just cannot resist trying. Just finishing row 2. Not really sure if I can get this row right. It looks confusing But, the tutorial helps some.
Changing colors is hard for me too. It always comes out looking messy. It will be a challenge, but worth the try. It gets so much easier with practice, I promise. Here is a good tutorial for how to change colours without your work looking messy: I came across your pattern while looking for something special and unique for a wedding gift and I think this is perfect.
I was thinking that I might like a border around it. What do you think? I think a simple one or two maybe even 3 round single crochet border would look great! What would the comparable amounts be? The non-chunky skeins are 3. It appears that they have discontinued the colours that I used. I would stick with a yarn that is of similar thickness as the afghan will turn out smaller if you use a non chunky yarn.
There are many great yarns online that can be ordered that are of similar chunkiness. My favourite sites to order from are knitpicks. You can also find a lot of great deals on amazon. This is such a pretty pattern and easy. I used it for a cowl.
