Learn How Left-handed Knitters Do It on the Continent
In our previous article on knitting for left-handed people, we looked at the basics, such as casting on and off. In this article we will take a closer look at how they do it on the Continent.
Many people feel that continental knitting may be easier to master for left-handed knitters than English knitting.
So if you are left-handed, you can still hold the knitting needles like you would normally do. However, you will not be holding the yarn with your left hand. Instead, you will “feed” the yarn around your right hand and onto the needles. Some fancy wrapping of the yarn around your pinkie, and off you go!
This easy to follow, step-by-step tutorial shows the basics of the Continental method and how it can work for left handers.
In our next article, we will take a closer look at how you can knit the purl stitch left-handed.
