Continental Knitting 101

Continental style knitting (also known as picking) is known for its speed and efficiency, as well as being a good choice for knitters who suffer from wrist pain when knitting English style (throwing). In this two hour workshop, you will learn to knit and purl using the continental technique. This class is recommended for English knitters who want to learn the technique, or continental knitters who want to increase their proficiency.
