Continental Knitting with Norwegian Purl - The Wool Merchant, Dartington, Devon
The continental way of knitting is faster and more efficient than most English styles. You will learn how to carry your yarn in your left hand and knit continental style, as well as the long-tail cast on and the Norwegian purl. For the Norwegian purl the yarn stays at the back of the work which makes it much quicker than the standard continental purl when working combined knit/purl stitch patterns such as ribs or moss stitch.
All materials will be supplied.
Suitable for all knitters, apart from complete beginners.
Time: 10am to 4pm.
Venue: The Wool Merchant, Dartington, Devon
