What is arm yarn?
Arm knitting involves using your arms to make the stitches with yarn. While it’s similar to traditional knitting in the movements that you make, there are differences, too.
Why is chunky yarn so expensive?
The bulkier your yarn the more expensive they get. If you use chunky yarns, you may need more skeins. This is because most chunky and bulky yarns have short yardage per skein. But if you knit projects like blankets and scarves, you may use more affordable yarns.
