Have you ever been curious about continental knitting? Or are you left-handed and want a more confortable way to knit? Knitting with the yarn in one's left hand is commonly referred to as Continental knitting. Unlike English knitting, the yarn is held in the left hand; the motion of bringing the yarn forward with a needle held in the other hand is thus sometimes known as picking. Continental knitting is preferred by professional hand-knitters, as it is the more efficient method, requiring the shortest number of specific hand-motions per stitch.
