CONTINENTAL KNITTING | HOW TO KNIT FASTER AND IMPROVE TENSION - Do you want to knit faster and with more even tension? Then Continental knitting is for you! The secret is in the way you hold your yarn and needles.

In this video, I'll show how how to knit continental style. You'll learn how to hold your needles and yarn to make you a faster knitter with beautiful tension. As opposed to the throw method of wrapping the yarn with large movements, continental style has very smooth and controlled movements that utilize your right hand to do the majority of the work.

Just like learning to tie your shoe laces, this way of holding your knitting takes a little time to master but the rewards are great. I'd love to know if this style works for you and any challenges you faced while trying to get the hang if it.

My grandmother taught me to knit English style about 13 years ago and I’ve only used English since, but now I think I might try Continental

Thank you, Nancy! Your tutorial is so direct and straightforward. I've been struggling with tension since I learned to knit. Your method works perfectly for me. Yay, I'm so excited! Also, thank you for referring how to use the thumb and finger to direct the yarn up the needle. For some reason, other tutorials neglect to mention how, in the world, we beginner knitters should accomplish this feat! Gosh, I really can't explain how much your video has helped me, thank you again!

I have been practicing this method and am liking it! I have knitted since age 12 and enjoy it so much! About 2 years ago I started developing arthritis in my hands. It's very bad in my right thumb. I've had to cut way back on knitting. I'm hoping this method might be easier on my haGreat Great tutorial!

I might be the only one who does this, but I stand up the right needle between my legs, and have been doing that since I was a child. I think it's going to be hard to try to knit without one of the needles being "anchored" but I am going to have to because I want to be able to knit with circular needles.

I’ve been knitting since a young child. I stopped for many years upon discovering crocheting since it was faster. I then recently learned of this “new to me” method but couldn’t grasp it. You teach this method so well that I picked it up immediately! Thank you so much!

I taught myself continental knitting two years ago, also soon after I started knitting using the throwing style, at first it was super loose gauge but I got stuck with it and love it. This method teaches the hands to distribute the workload, so one hand manoeuvres the working needle and another feeds it with the yarn, so each hand is important, none is left doing nothing, that way knitting becomes very relaxing and easy.

Is it easy or difficult to knit Continental style with two strands of yarn? It is not hard to do it in English style and I am wondering how is ii with left-hand knitting.

Thank-you so much Nancy. It recently occurred to me that others use this faster (and different way) than I had been taught (English). I had been trying to knit faster with no real improvement with speed...and then I saw someone on a tutorial...But NEEDED your 'how-to' tutorial to understand it. Again, thank-you, this helps so much; already I can see the difference in just a few minutes of practice, you have no idea how happy this makes me, I am just smiling to myself with beginners excitement/accomplishment <3

I learned to crochet before knitting. So I naturally did it this way. Didn’t know there was a name for it!

Many thanks for the great video. I've been knitting continental for years but wrapping the yarn. My northern European friends (Finnish, Latvian, Estonian) knit this way but they knit too fast for me to catch on. Finally, I know what they were doing!

Love this video! Do you have a video on continental purling? I find the continental knitting is doable for me with practice, but I've have a lit of difficulty with the continental purl stitch. Thanks for your help!

The only time I've seen people "throwing" the yarn and letting go of the needle are the new novice knitters, but they soon gain the ability to knit properly

It feels very alien at first, but also much more comfortable! Thanks for your clear, concise video!

Hi, thank you for the tutorial. Can you tell me what yarn your using? That is so pretty. I guess you would knit shawls out of that kind of yarn?

I have been knitting this fast way, continental knitting, for over 70 years but I make even less of a movement. I hold the left needle like a crocheter would hold her work, that is with the hand on top of the needle and the yarn over my index finger and under the middle finger only. And my index finger is right at the point of the needle, not up in the air, so basically I "pinch" the needle between my index finger and thumb.

Omg, the way you hold your tensioned yarn was a revelation to me. Thank you!

I learnt both ways because my grand mother was french but my mother swedish. The continental purling the scandinavian way is complicated because one has to twist the needle in a funny way to catch the thread. I simplified the movement by bringing the thread on the front of the needle and grab the thread.

Love continental knitting. The purl stitch is where my tension is a bit wonky. Norwegian purl helped a bit, but a bit more time consuming. I’d enjoy seeing your version of purl. Great video!

Another great video...however, I am now confused. Are you holding the yarn in your left hand? In the other video you were feeding the yarn from your right hand and holding the needle with the stitches in the left hand. Should I use my left hand to hold the needle with the stitches or my right hand. Sorry, didn't know if it was the camera or my left-handed brain LOL

I started knitting 6 years ago English style and I always had to stop because my hands and wrists would start to hurt so at the beginning of the year I decided that's it In just going for it. So I just started knitting washcloths to oractice and after the first 2 or 3 I got it down abd since switching I don't have any pain when knitting. Thank you so much for sharing this. I love your channel!

Continental knitting is easy. Continental purling, not so much. Will you be doing a video on purling in the Continental method? Also, what yarn is that. I love it.!
