Left-hand knit stitch in the continental style

I learned how to knit continental style. My joke is that I know how to knit. But only the knit stitch. But can not get the hang of the purl stitch in the continental method. But I am fine with only…Continue

Heather, Did you have to reverse the pattern? I knit left-handed I don't think it would make a difference. People comment all the time, "I have never seen anyone knit left-handed before."

I wish I could knit using the Continental method but I can't so no useful tips but I just wondered if you posted this discussion elsewhere on the Forum maybe one of our European knitters who do use the technique might be able to help.

Hi, I'm trying to learn contiential method (previously used knitting hand) and I was wondering if you all have any tips. It just doesn't feel right and I'm not quite sure how to wrap the yarn around my left hand. I want to go faster though, and this is how I've seen speed knitters do it so I'm giving it a go.

Welcome Cherry !  We certainly aren't very active.  This group was started way back in 2009 and we all seem to have gone on to other groups.  But if you do have a knitting/crocheting problem that other lefties could solve, let us know :-)

I have been crocheting for years - left-handed because I am left handed. I am now teaching myself to knit - lots of online videos, so no problem there. I decided that the continental right-handed method works best for me. But what I am having trouble with is that some of the yarns twists. Not every brand but just some types. Does anyone else have this problem with yarn twisting? And if so, is there anything to be done about the yarn twisting.

I am left handed and am restarting up knitting, just for a change and have found such a variety of knitting methods online I can pick and choose how to cast on, how to hold the needles, how to knit and purl...all very interesting.  I have decided to just go with the right handed method, it doesn't seem that hard, well not the Continental method anyhow.  I was watching the world champion fastest knitter and she said part of her secret is making her hand movements very small. I must try that...the small moves, not her speed (CRIKEY!) as my shoulders can tense up and hurt.  So rather than tax my brain with left or right hand I'm giving it a go right handed. Since both hands are involved and I was taught to eat right handed I think I'll be fine.  I'm still working on getting a loose tension right now, practicing with a scrap of grey yarn over and over.  :)

Welcome Jackie !  We have been pretty quiet!  We must be busy knitting and crocheting for the children.
