Knitting in Both Directions with Gwen Bortner
Most of us knit in one direction, but what would happen if you could knit in EITHER direction? Bobbles would pop out faster, entrelac would be even more fun, edgings could be added more quickly, and your yarn would tangle less.
Some call it knitting back backwards, but regardless of the name, it's a great skill to have in your knitting arsenal. You can learn the basics to knitting (and purling) in 'the other direction' regardless of the way you knit now! All it takes, as with most things, is a little bit of practice. Learn the how and the why, and get started with what some students have called "the coolest thing they have ever learned in knitting."
2 oz of a smooth, light-colored, #4 (worsted-weight) yarn; needles appropriate for the yarn; scissors and pen or pencil.
