Continental Knitting

March 22, 2016 @ 6:00 pm – 7:45 pm

Join Mary Beth on Tuesday nights, March 22 & 29 from 6-7:45pm. $65 plus materials.

Have you ever noticed the fastest knitters hold the yarn in their left hand? Whether you’re a brand new knitter or experienced, right-handed or left-handed, you can learn to knit in the continental style. There’s less movement, so it’s easier on the wrists, and it makes ribbing and seed stitch a breeze. It also comes in handy for stranded knitting, where you hold one color in each hand. We’ll work on a simple scarf with an attractive knit and purl pattern, and a little eyelet thrown in, so you’ll have plenty of practice transitioning from one type of stitch to the other. Suitable for any level, including those just learning to knit. Why not learn this way to begin with, rather than relearning a new way later?


Advance preparation may be required depending on the class topic. Details will be provided one week in advance or upon sign-up. Each weekly class session includes two hours of hands-on instruction, and extra help outside of class if needed and our time allows (it almost always does!). Yarn for classes must come from Compatto Yarn Salon, and we are always happy to help you choose the best yarn for your class or project. If you have questions about this or any other class, please give us a call at 310-453-2130.
