Have you ever wanted to knit faster, or do you suffer from pain in your hands, arms or shoulders when you're knitting? The answer is to learn to knit the continental way! With the yarn held in your left hand, learn how to 'pick' your stitches as you zip through your rows. Ribbing, moss stitch, brioche and two-handed colourwork become so quick and easy - you might even enjoy doing the rib on a sweater next time!

In this class, you will learn:

  • the basics of holding your yarn
  • how to do the knit and purl stitches
  • combining your stitches into stitch patterns such as ribbing
  • increasing and decreasing, and basic lace knitting.

Deb will also give demonstrations to show how brioche becomes a breeze and how easy colourwork becomes when you use two hands.
