Continental Knitting
Learn a new way to knit! With continental knitting the working yarn is held in the left hand and stitches are picked not thrown. Continental knitting reduces hand fatigue as it lessen the number of movements needed to create a stitch and is a great skill to use with colour work  projects. In this class you will learn the difference between picking and throwing stitches, as well as  how to work yarn overs and increases and decreases. This class is not for beginners, it assumes you are comfortable with the knit and purl stitches. Please bring or buy worsted weight yarn and 4.5mm needles to the class.
