In this class we will learn how to complete a knit stitch and a purl stitch in the continental style of knitting. This has been referred to as speed knitting in the recent months, as people who have traditionally knit in the English, or throwing style want to know if there is a faster way to complete their projects.
Whether you are looking to knit faster, hold yarn in both hands for stranded colourwork, or just try something new, this class is for you!
We will work on a swatch in class so that we can practice garter stitch, stockinette as well as ribbing, to get a complete introduction to this style of knitting.
Required Skills: comfortable knitting in English/ throwing style of knitting
Required Materials: 5mm needles (straight or 24" circular), about 10g of worsted weight yarn.
