Portuguese Style Knitting
In Portuguese-style knitting, the yarn is tensioned around a knitting pin on your shoulder or around your neck. Stitches are created by a flick of your thumb, making this an easy way to knit without stressing your hands or wrists.
Participants will learn:
-the history of Portuguese knitting
-the advantages of Portuguese knitting
-how to knit, purl, and bind off using the Portuguese method
-how to make a scarf using the Portuguese method
-increases and decreases using the Portuguese method
-resources available on Portuguese knitting

Students should bring:
worsted weight yarn (no novelty yarn)
straight or circular needles in size appropriate for your yarn.
