Do you want to learn how to knit holding the yarn in your left hand? Continental is a relaxed method of knitting that puts less stress on your hands and might even be faster than the traditional “throwing” style used in Britain! In this class you will learn to knit and purl comfortably in the Continental way, learn easy transitions between the stitches for textures like ribbing and moss stitch, and how to increase/decrease with ease. Danish/Scottish designer and teacher Karie Westermann will help you on your way to a new knitting adventure.
• Basic knitting skills (knit, purl, cast-on, cast-off) but beginners are welcome.
