Need for Speed: Continental Style Knitting

Need for Speed!

If your Ravelry queue is anything like mine, you wish you could knit faster.  For most of the three decades I’ve been knitting, I’ve been using “continental” style.  Simply put, I tension with my left hand.  Both hands work and it can go very quickly.  As a practice swatch, students will knit Practical Piecrust.

If you are a student of my class, the class page can be found here.
