German Knitting


Also, known as Continental knitting or European knitting. Someone had asked to know more about this "faster" way of knitting. So I did a Google search and found that wikipedia had some great directions with pictures of every step. VERY NICE. It is much faster, but I know a friend of mine has had a hard time switching because she has been knitting for some time. So if you are already a knitter it might take some getting used to.

Thank you for posting this! I've crocheted but never knitted so I should have no trouble learning this technique.

Thanks for this! This is how I knit (autodidatic knitter that I am *g*), and I am always told I knit "backwards". Now, I can say I am Continental.

And, like Christy, I was a crocheter first.
