Video Tutorial: Portuguese Style Knitting

If your hands get sore after hours of knitting, you may want to learn more about Portuguese Style knitting. Here's a quick video intro.My name is Ellen and I am a knit-a-holoic. I knit a lot. Someone once gave me a decorative pillow that said "If I'm sitting, I'm knitting". They probably meant it to be cute or funny, but it is also absolutely true.

I taught myself how to knit over 25 years ago with a couple good books on the subject. I prefer to knit English Style, but I am also fairly competent at Continental Style. Unfortunately, either way, after hours and hours of knitting, my hands get incredibly sore, especially when I am using very fine yarn. So, I did a little research and discovered Portuguese Style knitting.

In Portuguese Style knitting, your yarn is draped around your neck and is tensioned by weaving the yarn over a single finger. Stitches are then made with a small flick of the thumb. Less motion throughout your hands means a lot less stress and pain.
