If you are an English or American knitter—someone who throws their yarn with their right hand to knit—but have been intrigued by Continental knitting and would love to learn or brush up your skills, this class is for you! In Continental knitting, the yarn is held in your left hand and stitches are plucked through one another to knit. Some people feel that this method of knitting is quicker and less stressful on the shoulders, wrists, and neck than the English method.
Technique Requirements: Students must know how to cast on and how to knit. This is not a introduction to knitting class, but a class for knitters looking to change their knitting style.
Size 8 needles and worsted weight yarn—we will be making a swatch to practice the stitches, though one could turn it into a funky sampler stitch scarf or cowl if they desired.
