Portuguese Style of Knitting with Andrea Wong
During this workshop knitters will have the opportunity to
learn 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 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 techniques described in class for complete understanding.
