Want to try a new way to knit? Are you a lefty looking for a method that might be a little easier, or a crocheter who is struggling with the transition to knitting? Continental knitting may be just what you need!
In continental knitting, sometimes known as European knitting, or left-hand knitting, the yarn is held in the left hand. Continental knitting is a very efficient method of knitting, requiring the shortest number of specific hand motions per stitch. This knitting style is often easier to learn for people with crocheting experience, since the way the yarn is fed is very similar to crochet. In this class you will learn how easy it is to convert to continental knitting and a k1 p1 rib will never be the same!
