AN EXCLUSIVE KNITTING WORKSHOP
This underrated and little know method is the secret to pain free knitting.
By using your thumbs and tensioning around your neck (or lapel pin) you’ll experience the most relaxed way to knit ever.
During this 60-90 minute LIVE workshop you’ll learn everything you need to get started with Portuguese style knitting.
The slight movements of Portuguese knitting allow you to make stitches quickly with little effort.
Portuguese style knitting uses very small movements to make stitches. This is great if you suffer from arthritis and carpal tunnel.
If you love knitting fair isle or multiple colors at once you'll discover an even better method of managing your yarn.
Because you move your hands so little you'll be able to knit for longer without taking breaks.
The unique way Portuguese knitters tension their yarn results in much more consistent stitches throughout your work.
Learning new techniques helps you adapt to different knitting situations, making you a more FEARLESS KNITTER.
