Arm knitting has been working its way through the knitting community for over a year now. It has reached the tipping point and has gone viral. The best part about it is, you only need yarn, no needles required.
What is the right age to teach a child to knit
The right age to teach a child to knit is whenever your child shows an interest. Children are not too young to learn if they ask. Usually at the age of five or six, children have enough dexterity to handle the needles. Tying shoes is an easy test. Arm knitting might be just the hobby.
