(121) Portuguese Knitting
In Portuguese-style knitting the yarn is tensioned around a knitting pin on your shoulder or around your neck. Stitches are created by a flick of your thumb making this an easy way to knit without stressing your hands or wrists. Students will learn the history and advantages of Portuguese Knitting as well as how to Purl, Knit, Increase, Decrease, make a scarf, and how to Bind off using the Portuguese method.
