    Thanks for the tutorial, I’ve been wanting to do this! I have a big white dog too that’s just as interested in helping me. Thanks again.

  4. Deborah says:

    How many rows did you do? I think I did ten and I’m not sure if it is too small. It is a little tight but it seems like the yarn stretches out as you wear it a bit. Let me know if you get a chance. Thanks!

  5. Victoria says:

    HI! I’m 13 and I’ve been using your arm knitting patterns for EVER and I’m getting a lot of “wows” so I was wondering if I can start selling them. I just want to make shere it’s ok with you.So what’s the difference between this and the other infinity scarf? Besides the thickness. And what yarn did you use?

  6. KnittingKey says:

    Wow it’s a very big yarn

    What kind of yarn is used for this project? Just went to my local Joannes and there was nothing that large.

  9. Kira Cohen says:

    Hi, I’m using a yarn similar to the one in this tutorial, but no matter what I do I just get a garter stitch. I’ve tried turning the working yarn towards me like you said, but it does the same thing. It can’t seem to get the stockinette stitch. What am I doing wrong?

  10. Kelly says:

    I have a lot of time on my hands as I am recovering from surgery and have found this technique of knitting very enjoyable

  11. Maureen says:

    Hi Maggie – I just made my first infinity scarf using the couture jazz – i love it! I saw you’re other video about arm knitting a blanket, and I’m wondering how many would you cast on for a blamkey using the coutire jazz? And how many rows? Any idea how many skanes of this you’d purchase? Thanks so much!

  12. Joyce says:

    Just learning this method,enjoyed the video thanks!

  13. Mary Couper says:

    Looking forward to making this scarf.

  14. Kris says:

    very easy to understand and loved the dog helping!

  15. Linda says:

    This was great. Thank you

  16. Great! Arm knit infinity scarf is one of the easiest style in knitting an infinity scarf. You don’t have to consume so many hours to knit. Thank you for sharing this tutorial. Your scarf is lovely, it is looking good! :)

  17. Karla says:

    It would of been better if the background was all white to c it..

  18. Kina says:

    Is your fireplace electric? It’s so cute!

  19. Paige says:

    Thanks for sharing!!! I’m so excited to try this!

  20. thanks so much! i have never knitted before and i tried your tutorial and now i have a beautiful infinity scarf!

  21. Just learned of arm knitting and have spent a week researching tutorials as I am a real show and tell idiot! I have yet to find any other than Maggie’s that are as well demonstrated and explained – especially for a novice to the knitting world. She is the best – and the dogs are pretty great themselves! Because of her I have finally built up the courage to give it a try. Thanks Maggie!

  22. Alexis says:

    How many skeins did you use?yours looks pretty thick,i never seen any that thick before?could you provide the name of what you used and how thick also.any info help . Thank u and great job!!

  23. Mop says:

    Great tutorial on arm knitting!!

  24. Allyson says:

    Hi, I showed this pattern to my aunt and she just wants a scarf not an infinity, so I plan on using this pattern and just not sewing the ends together,

    now she happens to be a small person so I was wondering, If I kept the cast on to just 3 and made it slightly longer, do you think I could get away with just using 1 skein?

  25. Jan Kay says:

    Loved the demo have watched other ones but they were not as easy to get my head around but don’t know where to get this yarn in the UK.

  26. Erica says:

    You showed the actual knitting process better than anyone else I watched, and from the same point of view ours would be. Most people have not done that and it screwed me up. Thank you!

  27. Sherryl Lockley says:

    Thank you! I have a roll of 3″ ribbing that I used to make a scarf while watching your video.

    Too fun!

  28. Erica Ross says:

    Since the yarn you used is so hard to find, and is pretty much sold out, have you found a compatible yarn that you would recommend? Thank you :)

  29. Mary Gonzalez says:

    Going to try this

  30. Cora says:

    Very informative, learned a lot. You take your time,and that is very helpful. Thank you

  31. Nadya Gains-Smith says:


    I am finding it very difficult to get this yarn at a reasonable price in the UK. Could you offer an alternative company than to the one used?

    Many thanks,

  32. Debbie Haakenson says:

    Your directions seem so easy to follow. I definitely plan to try this one.

  33. Lynsy says:

    I love the video just for the dog. I too have a great dane who “bops” me with his paw when he wants attention. :)

  34. Margaret Lee Wo says:

    A great tutorial on the hand knitting Infinity scarf. This is a new learning method which I hope to try shortly. Your dog is beautiful and so good!

  36. […] Deze supergave plaid en colsjaal maak je zonder breinaalden en in slechts 15 tot 45 minuten tijd. Hoe gaaf is dat! Wat je dan wel gebruikt? Bolletjes superdikke wol en je armen, want die fungeren als het ware als breinaalden. Het is wel fijn als je een beetje handig bent met breien, maar op zich is het ook voor beginners goed te doen, want Maggie legt het in haar video’s echt supergoed uit. Hier vind je de DIY voor het kleed en hier vind je de DIY voor de ronde sjaal. […]

    Hi there,
    The Jazz Couture is no where to be found!! Any thoughts on where to get it?

  39. Karen says:

    Great tutorial! Think I will try it. I crochet but don’t knit so it should be interesting to see how I do. Maybe my granddaughter will do it too.

  40. Erika says:

    Awesome! What age child would you say this project would be good for teaching?

  41. linda says:

    Is there a site that has written instructions?
    I don’t do well with video teaching.

  42. Lisa says:

    How many rows did you do in total for this? Looks really easy to do.

  43. Kristen says:

    This is amazing! I have been a knitter for 7 years and I started out finger knitting. This is way more useful and a great way to do quick gifts. I would suggest to anyone who is up for the challenge to graft the two sides together instead of sewing the way you did. This would give you an almost seamless look and it’s not so daunting of a task with only 6 stitches. Thanks for all this.

  44. Heather says:

    Is there a way of making the scarf longer by chance? I love the look of this scarf but would want it to be longer than just what it makes! Thanks so much for the tutorial!!!
