Portuguese Knitting

 

Challenge yourself by learning something new and different! Portuguese knitting is an alternative method to classical knitting which gets the same results – but faster and with less wear on the joints. 

 

If you are a knitter, chances are you have chosen the method that you like the best. However, learning alternative knitting methods can ensure that you are knitting in the most comfortable way possible. Sometimes, the way you first learn to do something is not always the best for your hands and wrists.

 

The Portuguese Knitting is not only simple, but it requires less movement which strains your hands less.  The simplicity of the movement means that hands are not overworked, they do not tire as easily and knitters are less likely to experience pain or cramping.

 

This method it is also perfect to do circular projects with no joining.
