Continental knitters say they knit faster, with better tension and less movement; it is the more efficient method, requiring the shortest number of specific hand-motions per stitch. I have been a right hand thrower all my life but learned to knit Continental for Fair Isle knitting. Let me show you how to change hands for knitting, purling and ribbing. Training the left hand to work for you for knitting and purling back, backwards will also be covered. Suitable for all levels of knitters.
