Knitting Technique: Continental Knitting

It’s always great to be able to do something faster and more efficiently. This applies to knitting and is why I’m going to introduce you to a new method of knitting called continental knitting.

My mom was introduced to this technique by another mom at a speech and debate tournament (there can be a lot of down time if you’re a parent and you’re not judging a round so both my mom and the other mom had brought along their knitting). I learned it and have been using it on my simple projects. It takes a minute to get a hang of it, but after you do it can be much faster.

So that you can take advantage of this faster method check out these two videos: The Knit Stitch (Continental Method) and The Purl Stitch (Continental Style).
