Continental knitting is a style of knitting where you hold the yarn in your left hand and "pick" the yarn with your right needle. For some people, this turns out to be a faster way to knit. Also, if you experience hand, arm or shoulder pain when knitting, this method could be less painful. We will begin knitting a washcloth to practice knitting and purling using the Continental method.
Experience: If you already knit using the English (throwing) or another method, this class is for you.
- A ball of worsted weight wool yarn for practice during class, and a ball of cotton yarn for washcloth project (some yarns need to be wound into a ball before use; please come to class with yarn already wound)
- Straight or circular needles (24-inch or 32-inch) in a size suitable for your yarn (US 6 - US 8).
- A pattern for a simple washcloth will be provided by the instructor.
Materials are available for purchase at the shop.
