About This Class

Learn how to knit a modern, cozy blanket in under an hour. The trick: Your own two arms! That's right. In this 45-minute class, knitting star Amanda Bassetti of Simply Maggie teaches you the basics of arm-knitting while creating a chic throw for your home (or gifting)! This is the perfect project for first-time knitters or advanced knitters looking to break out of their usual routine. Either way, you won't believe how fast it goes!

This looks like fun and it's well taught. The only problem is the teacher says "Keep it tight because you don't want it to look like a fishing net." And the yarn she chose makes it look like a fishing net! It's not the same as the throw in the promo, which is normal, extra chunky yarn.
super easy
Great overview of the basics of arm knitting! Easy to follow instructions. Did not really need to see the whole blanket be knitted; a couple rows would have been sufficient. That said, it's easy to skip ahead to the next part. Looking forward to trying this project :)
