“Portuguese Knitting 2 – The Basics Plus” #0419-01

Most people are familiar with the common methods of knitting, known as English and Continental styles, but there are other ways to get stitches on the needle!  Portuguese knitting, also sometimes referred to as “Incan knitting”, “Turkish knitting”, or “around the neck knitting”, is unique in that the yarn is tensioned around the neck and/or through a knitting pin attached at the shoulder.  Portuguese knitting is a good choice for people who suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome, arthritis, joint pain, or difficulty using their hands because little movement is needed to form the stitches.  It is also easier to work colorwork with this method because you can strand each color through a different knitting pin, which keeps them from getting so tangled.  It is easy to keep a nice tension on the work, even for beginners, and it’s a great way for people with visual imparities to knit because the working yarn stays put and can always be easily found.
