As much as I love traditional knitting, it’s not generally a quick craft. I can still remember when I first saw/heard people talking about arm knitting. It seemed crazy. But then it seemed brilliant. A way to make giant stitches and quick cozy projects.
I picked up this pretty coral colored mega bulky yarn at the yarn store without really knowing what I wanted to make with it. I just liked the color. (It’s a common occurrence.) When I got home I realized I didn’t really have any knitting needles big enough to work with the yarn. Which led me to thinking about arm knitting. But I didn’t really want to make stitches that big. And that led me to come up with a whole new way to knit with my fingers.
This way to do finger knitting utilizes some traditional knitting methods. I’m using a long tail cast-on and I’m binding off at the end. The knitting in the middle is done in much the same way you do arm knitting. You’re just using your fingers instead of your entire arms.
To make the cozies in the video:
Cast on 5 stitches
Knit until your work is long enough to wrap around your jar
I used a crochet hook to stitch the ends together. And on the larger mason jar I added a decorative button.
