"Netted" or "Ruffle" Yarn Scarves
I love arm knitting as a way to de-stash bulky weight yarns. These netted style yarns are already full of texture. You would typically knit or crochet into the individual gaps in the yarn by holding it taut. By keeping it loose and using the wider stitching of arm knitting, you end up with an incredibly thick and plush result. The silver sequined scarf is crocheted in the gaps of the yarn, but I wanted to include the photos to show how incredibly versatile your outcome can be based on the stitching.

"Eyelash" or "Fur" Yarn Scarves
Arm knitting is a great way to use bulky #5 and #6 yarn. If you have lots of fashion and novelty yarns, this is a great stash buster idea. Infinity scarves are versatile, make great gifts, and are easy and fun to make. The pattern is a video tutorial that's available for free here.
They worked up quickly and I love the end result of the unique yarns. I recommend using chunky yarn and combining 2 or 3 colors or styles for tons of texture and less gaps in the stitching, since it's a relatively open weave. The scarves can be found here and yarn info can be found by clicking the individual photos.
Chunky Bulky Yarn Scarves
When novelty yarn and fashion yarn go on sale I STOCK UP. Unique styles of yarn are perfect for arm knit scarves, so let's get stash-busting! Faux suede, ribbon yarn and pom pom yarn are just a few of the unique finds I've had. Find the free arm knitting video tutorial here.
