Portuguese Style of Knitting with Andrea Wong
During this workshop, knitters will have the opportunity to
learn about the history and practice the style of knitting which is in Greece, Portugal, Egypt, and Turkey. The main characteristic is that
the yarn is either wrapped behind the neck or looped the through a pin
attached to the shoulder in order to maintain a constant tension. Students will learn the knit stitch, the purl stitch, increases, decreases, cast-on and bind-off. A project will be given to practice all the techniques described in class for a complete understanding.
