Unlike other forms of knitting, arm knitting is a relatively simple style of knitting that can be picked up very easily. To help you practice your arm knitting techniques, here are 5 stylish arm knitting projects to transform your home.
Simple, yet effective, a blanket is a great introductory arm knitting project. Thick knitted blankets are extremely trendy, as they add a hint of texture to your home. Once finished you can use the blanket for extra warmth on your bed, or use it as a throw for your couch.
Stylish cushion cover
Cushion covers are also a great project for beginner arm knitters. Like knitted blankets, knitted cushion covers are extremely in vogue and can be customised to match your couches or armchairs. Opt for neutral cream, sand or beige tones to create a beachy look or choose more vibrant colours to breathe life into your home.
Thick, chunky rugs look fabulous on wooden or tiled floors. They can be perfectly placed beneath coffee tables, desks or the foot-end of a bed. You can experiment with both rectangular and oval shaped rugs to find a style that suits your home best.
Funky pot plant covers
With our current houseplant craze, just about everyone has a pot plant in their home. So why not jazz up your pot plants with a knitted cover. Vibrant, plush and stylish, you can customise your colours to match existing colour schemes or cover outdated or damaged pots.
Thick table runner
Spruce up your coffee table or dining room table with a chunky, knitted table runner. You can choose a colour that you are happy with year round, or knit a variety of table runners using different patterns and colours to suit different celebrations or seasons.
The best material to use for arm knitting is chunky merino wool. It's easy to work with due to its elasticity and comes in a range of stylish colours. If you're looking for some merino wool for your next arm knitting project, then check out our range of giant yarn.
