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

Previous experience: traditional knitting skills would be helpful.

Students should bring:

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

Class fee includes Portuguese Knitting Pin and authorized handout.

Instructor: Mary Jo Harris

Class Fee: $58
