Introduction to Knitting in the Portuguese Style
Knit more efficiently with the hottest new trend, Portuguese style knitting. With tension controlled by draping your yarn around your neck or a special pin, and flipping it with your left thumb around the needle, you’ll be putting less stress on your hands, wrists and shoulders while increasing your knitting speed and improving your tension. Learn how to cast on, knit, purl, several increases and decreases, and cast off, Portuguese style!
Students should bring an ounce of worsted or sport weight yarn (can be left over from a project and can be a variety of yarns/colors as these will be practice swatches) and appropriate size needles for the yarn. They can be straight or circular. A bowl for your yarn ball may be helpful to you.
