Few Tips and Tricks 💡
◾ Keep your stitches condensed and close to your hand as possible (your arm is smallest and most consistent near your wrist)
◾ While you are knitting, keep your hands close together. Otherwise, the stitches get pulled bigger
◾ Try to grab the working yarn close to the last stitch you made minimizing the amount of yarn included in each stitch
◾ You may notice that the last stitch you made won’t actually lock down tight. This frustrates a lot of beginning arm knitters. Instead, focus on the stitch you made just before the last one
◾ You can always manually tighten your arm knit stitches by starting at the stitch close to your elbow and pulling each one snug against your arm, progressing from your elbow, and going towards your hand
◾ If you are making something like a cowl which will be hanging around your neck, you can get away using yarn that is less bulky
◾ If you are making something like a pillow, pouffe or blanket, I recommend using a bulkier yarn as your stitches will be stretching two directions
