Arm Knitting Basics
(with Truly Majestic)
If you watch all these videos you should have enough understanding
to make your own blanket AND lightly felt your wool roving properly.
Intro: Lightly Felting Wool Roving
This is critically important to stop your giant blankets from shedding, pilling and fuzzing out
If your wool roving is properly felted your knits will have a long and beautiful life!
Lesson 1: Casting On
This is a single cast on which creates a stretchy almost invisible edge.
It is not very decorative but it is SUPER EASY!
Lesson 2: The Knit Stitch
This is the most used stitch in knitting! It creates a nice smooth minimalist look
and is very easy to do. (Skip to 0:49 on the video to see the knit stitch).
Lesson 3: Knitting Through The Back Loop (Ktbl)
This is a decorative stitch that twists the stitches and give them a nice textured braided look.
It is also the FASTEST stitch you can arm knit! (Skip to 0:52 on video)
Lesson 4: The Purl Stitch
Another absolutely necessary to know stitch to arm knitting. This stitch
creates little dashes across your knits, and when alternated with the knit stitch
it makes the nice little pattern you see above.
Lesson 5: Casting Off
This is the way you finish your knits. It leaves a nice decorative edge that has minimal stretch.
If you want your Cast On edge to match this Cast Off edge you’ll need to do a “Mock Long Tail Cast On.”
