Knit Faster by Picking (aka Continental Knitting) Workshop in Hayward August 31

Knit Faster by Picking (aka Continental Knitting) Workshop in Hayward August 31

Knitting by “picking” yarn held in your non-dominant hand is faster than “throwing” the yarn with your dominant hand, and easier on the body. It’s a faster method especially with knit/purl or lace stitch patterns, and stranded colorwork is most easily done with one yarn in each hand. Switching your method of knitting takes some patience, and you’ll get lots of tips to help you make the transition smoothly while you start a textured checkerboard scarf. This class is for “throwing” knitters of any level, and may be a good match for crocheters or left-handed folks starting to knit.

This workshop will take place at Aranea Craft Studio, 943 C Street in Hayward, CA.
