Ever watched a Continental knitter and was in awe of her efficient movement? Getting tired of all the throwing and frustrated by the slow pace of your knitting? Always wanted to try out the Continental style of knitting, but been a bit intimidated to do it yourself? This class will make it easy to try Continental knitting!
This class is suitable for anyone who wants to learn how to make knitting more efficient and enhance their technique. We'll go through all the basics: How to hold yarn in the left hand and how to work the basic stitches.
You will learn: knit and purl, decreases and increases, how to work in the round, how to work back and forth, how to keep tension.
Technique Requirements: Be familiar with the basics of knitting.
Yarn to practice with (smooth, no novelty yarns) and circular needles appropriate to the yarn--I recommend worsted-weight and a US 7 or 8 needle.
