Things like trendy fashionable tops, bests and capes for a fraction of the cost of what you'd pay in boutiques and stores. It's all here in Fashionista Arm Knitting.
Welcome this hot new trend! The Wall Street Journal and popular knitting sites such as Ravelry (with more than 1 million followers), have nominated arm knitting as a leading trend among the young and young at heart. Arm knitting--in which big yarn loops are "cast on" just below the knitter's wrists, then woven without needles---is the latest knitting craze. Knitting bloggers are talking about it nonstop. Even big yarn companies are catering to the trend with chunky new fibers. And we've got the projects!
