Take your yarn and measure about four or five arm lengths and set it to the side (this is your tail and the park coming from the balls of yarn is called the working yarn) Make a slip knot by making a loop and pulling the yarn through it. Slip your dominant hand through the slip knot and make it snug on your wrist (but not too tight)

Grab the working yarn with your left hand (the right if you are a lefty) and with your thumb go over the working yarn (while still holding it in hand) and up (like in pictures) then with the two fingers closest to your thumb grab the tail so it looks like in the picture.

Slip your hand between the working yarn on your thumb over and through the tail on your other fingers and back through the working yarn (look at pictures) and tighten around your wrist. Do this same thing about 11 more times until you have twelve stitches on your wrist.






I was looking at making a scarf for my fiancée for Christmas, I may just give this a try. Thank you for this! :-)

Need advice--------------went to Michaels for yarn but many have different yardage. I found bulky, now I just need to figure out how many yards on each skein. Made a scarf but ran out of yarn at the end UGH!!! Thanks for any info!!

Thank you! I will probably make a video this weekend.
I've never even heard of this type of knitting before--I love the large-scale knit of your project and how easy you made the motions (And keeping track of them) look! Can't wait to try it as well--hopefully you will have a video up by then to make it easier ;-)

Thanks, I will try to make a video once I can find enough yarn somewhere around here... I'm not sure if there is enough left on that roll if yarn.

Thanks! I recommend bulky yarn if you are talking about brands... I honestly forgot what brand this yarn was, sorry to say but I got them on sale a Michaels. And no, I haven't thought of adding beads but it sounds like it would turn out great! Thanks so much for the idea!

This is a very neat project! What kind of yarn do u recommend? Have you tried putting random beads on the strands as you go?
