Two Handed Two Color Knitting

Have you tried knitting with two colors (i.e. stranding, fair isle) and found it frustrating? I would have agreed with you before I tried two colors in two hands. The technique featured in this video has your right hand knitting Western style (throwing the yarn) and the left hand knitting Continental style. As a life long yarn thrower, this was groundbreaking stuff! It starts out a bit awkward, but in no time you gain confidence and speed. This slick method will have you working with colors in record speed!

  1. I am just learning to knit this way. Is there a demo showing how you would purl a row this same way with two colors? They didn’t show me that.
    Thanks

  2. Thanks for your interest in Block of the Month. It is currently available locally, but I am currently working on bringing it to a shop near you!

  3. I will try this again. Do not think the first time my comment was posted.
    I am interested in the Block of the Month. How do I access the correct site to participate.

    Thanks

  4. I’m sure I’ll be all thumbs for a while but your video has really helped me to see that it is much easier than I imagined. Now I don’t have to be avoid two color projects. Thanks so much.

  5. Thanks! I was the opposite of you – I had to learn to knit continental style to master the two hands method. Isn’t it fun to learn something new?

  6. Thank you for posting this video. I am a continental knitter and must learn to use the English style in order to master the two color two hand technique. Your video was quite informative and has encouraged me to continue on my mission to learning.
