I've had complaints about how people can't see how I do my continental purl in some of my other videos. This video breaks my method down in detail to make it much clearer. (I hope!)

also, if you lower your left index finger closer to your needles,you will have more control with less flopping about

Thanks very much for doing this so slowly. Some of these knitters seem to be showing off to my mind (see how fast this is!), and even the slow motion videos aren't slow enough. I'm trying to learn Continental, as my English style is really awkward, and I keep dropping the right hand needle on the floor with the first two stitches in a row. Got the knitting down, but my purling just blows chunks.

I find rather thsn pul my finger tiwards me t wrap the yarn I noyuce I do a very quickrock backwards to ick the yarn an wrap the yarn around needle. Then purling I tend to use mh thumb its righg there snc wuickest and feels m st natural.
QUESTION...... tension. I find that my tension is not even on the whole row. If I tigten every stich often the following row is too tight if I tension a tad after esch stitch then my tension tends to be too tight my following row. If it dont do any extra tension motion then my rows are often wavy and not strsight perfect rows. I get confused if dome sre teisted or if they are just looser tension. When I study the stitch it looks to me to be the same as its neighbors Im nit seeing obvios cross or twist at the stitches base. Its anniying because english style my tension was perfect but transition betweeb knit and purl for a grmini is too much we are too impatient and wang to work effeciently and meticously st the same time. Can you offer any advicre. If I posted images in the Ravelry group could you tell me my issue? To me they just do not look perfectly strsaght with no holes when trying to do a worsedd weight texture where you aren"t looking for spaces between your stitches at all you are looking for a sock tension.....all even. What is your best advice in keeping the tension an even consistantancy? Thank you. PLEASE.

The Russian method is the fastest and most comfortable. As long as you knit flat.
With round knitting, your way of purling is more comfortable.

Wow, Hi! That is exciting! I am an experienced crochet artist learning to knit. I have always "thought' knitting was harder... I don't know why, but what I've been hearing these last few days is 'continental knitting' is faster and well suited to crochet crafters! Now as a BONUS I chance upon your helpful tidbit and I am not feeling so overwhelmed and out of my depth! Thank you SO MUCH, for taking the time to make all those other purl videos and especially thank you for feeling inspired to explains once again this purling method- I can almost guarantee it will make such a difference in my own level of inspiration to fully learn knitting and to NOT give up. ...again and most Sincerely I thank you! ๐Ÿ˜Š ๐Ÿ‘ฃ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜Š

Love your videos. I am doing an Irish Moss stitch & did your tutorial but when I purl there is a yarn over. What am I doing wrong? Thanks. I appreciate your very quick response & do switch positions; yarn in back for knit & purl with yarn in front. Iโ€™m going to watch your video again. UPDATE: I was pulling the purl stitch much to tight thus creating a yarn over. Now I am a successful Continental knitter. Bless you for your quick response & video. Iโ€™m a very happy subscriber.

If after inserting the needle you bring your left index finger down on top of the working yarn strand to push it behind the right needle, you don't have to rock your wrists or use your right index finger or thumb at all. You might have to keep your left index finger closer to your work. It's even less motion than you're making now. That's how I do it and I have disability in both hands. I know there's a video from some years ago. If I find it I will edit this to include a link.

Have you seen how Russian knitters do the Continental purl? I haven't tried it, but it looks like it would work wonderfully, with less movement. They just wrap it the other way, so the yarn is under the right needle, and then pull it through. Would that make the stitch mount backwards? I don't know. I guess I'll have to try it. Here is a woman demonstrating: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gjRdy47-S38
Okay, I went back and looked longer. The first knit row, after casting on, she knits typically Continental. Then she purls but turns her needle the opposite way and pushes the yarn through. Then, the next row, the stitches ARE mounted the other way, and she knits through the back loop. And from then on, she also purls through the back loop. So I guess they knit and purl the first rows differently than the rest, but once she gets going, knitting and purling are very similar and both seem to minimize movements. I can knit both ways, but purling Continental is difficult for me. Right now I'm knitting silk, and I simply cannot maintain tension purling with silk. It is just too slippery. Maybe I could do it this way, but I won't switch in the middle of a project.

Thank you so much, I wanted to expand my horizons, ( not that anything is wrong with Portuguese style ) and being a former crocheter seemed to me that allowing my left hand to control things made sense , I managed to figure out knit , just could not work out how to purl so here I am , tension will come eventually, but I am on my way.

I don't like pulling the working yarn in front, so I finally learned Norwegian purl - I still resort to throwing sometimes, but Continental knitting, Norwegian purling works for me.
Thanks for this video!

Iโ€™ve been Portuguese Knitting since 7/2016 when it was recommended by a friend who noticed the arthritic pain in my hands was increasing. Purling is so much fun and easy on my hands, shoulders & neck.

By the next month numbness in my arms and hands developed so I had C7-T1 replacement surgery 10/2016. Iโ€™m grateful it stopped that issue for two & a half years. I switched to a Portuguese yarn pin when numbness returned to my right thumb last year right before I had lumbar surgery. At the follow up appt. My surgeonโ€™s assistant ordered an x-ray 4/2019 which showed C6 is deteriorating and making the C7-T1 insert tip out of alignment. Revision surgery will be discussed at my appt next month. Sadly I have to take a break from knitting because Iโ€™m noticing mistakes due to the numbness.

I like your purling video very much. Can I use this method with magic loop? I get confused when there is a method of purling, then you have to knit to untwist stitches in the following row. Will this method work with any type of pattern, I am doing ? I am verily new to knitting, and just started doing some circular patterns on magic loop method. I am interested in making mittens and sock patterns. This would help especially with ribbing.

I've been knitting continental style for over 50 years and only recently realized that I don't purl like this! I don't wrap the yarn at all, but just pick the thread through. The only difference it makes is that the loop on the other side is reversed. I knit the stitch "as it lies" rather than knit through the left of the stitch. It is a faster method and works well with lace patterns.

I have SO much left over yarn, I will give this a try for practice! For sure, seed stitch is very tedious in the English method. I enjoy your videos and find your instructions so easy to understand. Sometimes I just browse to find something new.

That was by far the BEST method for purling for me! I am teaching myself to Continental knit and those darn purls were kicking my butt! Your method is by far a more natural flow for me. No more dropping the yarn off my finger. Thanks so much for sharing. Now itโ€™s practice time!

Your purling method is superb! I learned easy Continental purling from YouTube's video by Bronislava Slagle, but I think that your method is even easier and faster. Many thanks! I forwarded the link to this lesson to some knitters in my native Poland. Even if they do not speak English, they will understand your film. Elizabeth

thanks for this video! I have been doing a very close version of your method (using my thumb to push the yarn down) and a little tweak to your method has vastly improved my motion and therefore my speed. I feel like doing a seed stitch project after watching!

OMG - I've been knitting for years using the continental method, but after watching this I think I've been purling backwards (or upside down)? I put the point of the needle down and push the yarn through. It's really easy, and works if I'm just doing knit and purl rows, ribbing, or seed stitch etc. -- but I'm trying to learn to knit lace and am having a TERRIBLE time. Is this why?

you make this too hard, hold the index finger closer to the needle with less length of yarn and just pick the yarn and pull it through, do all of them like you did the end stitch

I purl the same exact way, except left handed. It was born out of being self taught through YouTube videos and not being able to coordinate my index finger down to do the yarn over. It seemed easier for me to move the needle rather than the yarn. Being unable to find really good left handed videos also played a part because I couldn't "flip" the images in my mind well enough to translate what I was seeing. So I just "found" another way! Knitting is one thing that ends well because you can justify the means in getting there. I thought I was the only one.

Wow. So much easier than what I've been following. Thanks for having this post up still. I did some knitting when I was young but am really horrible at it now. You'd think I'd have a few knitting brain cells left but, thankfully there's someone like you that I can learn from. I like your style.
