Arm knitting a blanket, it didn’t work

I’ve seen these wonderfully comfy cozy arm knit blankets all over Pinterest. Here is one example. I felt like I could just wrap myself in it with a cup of cocoa and watch some movies.
Friday night I went and picked out my yarn, and started working on it.

As I worked I could not wait to wrap it around me.
Disappointment set in when I finished. It’s not a blanket, it’s a net, for a fisherman.

When I put it over me one arm went through a hole and my freezing feet went through another. I was not even close to feeling warmer.

I started to rip I out and now am crocheting with a Q hook another warmer blanket. I have a lot of this yarn. Maybe I’ll give a arm knit scarf a try.

    When it comes to arm knitting the secret is using really thick yarn. And by that I mean buy the thickest yarn you can find and knit using many strands kept together. This gives it the thickness and fullness that you would want in a blanket.
