    One question–how can you stop for awhile? Do you HAVE to finish it in one sitting?? I am guessing you must because there is no way to “set it down”!

      You can just put something trough the loops on your arm, like a band or a line, and let the knitting rest on that. When you want to pick up the knitting, you just run your arm trough the loops, and you get going again. I use a belt, so that I can close the belt, and avoid loosing any of my masks. Good luck! 🙂

    • Wini says:

      If you make the loops on your arm extra loose, you can slide them off your arm and set it aside in a safe place. Then when you’re ready to resume, you can slide it back on your arm and tighten them back up again. If you’re nervous about losing the stitches, you can buy stitch holders at any dollar store with knitting products

      I use a broom handle or dowel rod.

    How much wool am I going to need?

    • Susan says:

      you need 2 skeins #6 bulky of about 300gr.

      • Susan says:

        You can also use 3 skeins if you want it fuller. You will not use all of the wool though depending if you’re making a cowl or infinity scarf. You cast on between 10 and 12 stitches and go as long as you like it.

    I managed this tonight and I’m totally useless with knitting and crochet! So excited. Did it in probably 15 minutes. Very good craft to get a child to do too I would imagine!

    Is the first slipknot done in the center of the strands? Doesn’t say how for up to start..

    I have never seen this kind of creativity to knitting a scarf. Without use any needle or equipment you make a great piece of knitting scarf. I’m completely speechless after seeing your talent.
