I've made several arm knitted scarves so far and given some of them away as gifts earlier this year. Arm knitted scarves are fun, fast, and easy to make. They look very fashionable too and are warm!! I am now an avid arm knitter and loving promoting this wonderful knitting technique.
Arm knitting is also a great way to teach kids how to knit as you don't have to worry about them poking themselves or others accidentally with knitting needles.
Learn to Arm Knit by Leisure Arts also offers a photo gallery with various arm knitted scarves in different colors and an index of which yarns were used to make each scarf using the technique outlined in the book.
I also enjoyed reading the instructions on how to make a very cute looking scarf using a finger crocheting technique, which I haven't tried doing yet.
Even though, I enjoyed reading Learn to Arm Knit by Leisure Arts and adding it to my permanent collection of books, I am glad I didn't pay full price for it. I felt that there wasn't anything revolutionary in it that couldn't have been found for free by watching a YouTube video on how to arm knit. In fact, I had already learned how to arm knit by watching a YouTube video prior to buying this book online.
I guess the redeeming feature of Learn to Arm Knit by Leisure Arts for me was the photo gallery showcasing various arm knitted scarves and the index that followed stating which yarns were used. I also think that that the finger crochet scarf is worthwhile and I look forward to making it in the future as well.
