Class Details:

Do you "throw" or knit English style (with the yarn in your right hand)?

Have you gazed upon Continental knitters and wished you had the slick speed with which they knit?

If so, THIS is the class for you.

As an English-style knitter, it was important for Keith to learn Continental knitting in order to demonstrate different techniques to different knitters. However, he quickly learned the AMAZING advantages of knowing and using both knitting styles.

So join Keith as he teaches you to speed up your knitting by "picking" or knitting Continental style! PLUS, he is also going to show you some Combination tips that will help you tweak your knitting and make your knitting look more professional.

See the LOOSE knit stitch circled in red in the photos? Does that happen to you after a purl? See how that same knit stitch, with a little tweak in your knitting style (using Combination knitting), will create a neater looking, tighter rib without changing needle sizes!

Supplies for Class:
2 colors worsted-weight yarn; size 16” US 7 or 8 knitting needles.
