4 thoughts on “Knit (Continental Style)

  1. I crocheted before I knit so my ‘English’ developed similarly to the way I crochet. When the needle enters the loop, I wrap, grab and slip the stitch off in one motion. The efficiency of movement makes for a fast pace, never tires my hands and my left finger untouched by the needle.

  2. Just like anything else, at first your tension finger would get sore. After a while the knitting becomes so smooth you will wonder why you ever knit English.

  3. I imagine for some people that the forefinger could get a bit sore. I demonstrate just one way of holding the yarn in the left hand. Experiment and find the one that works best for you!

  4. From the video, continental knitting looks like your left finger tip would get sore after a while. Is that true?
