Russian Speed Knitting: a Twist on Continental with Grace Akhrem
This twist on continental knitting (pun intended) may be one of the fastest ways to knit, This combined continental technique minimizes hand motions for increased efficiency.
We will practice knit, purl, increase, and decrease stitches and discuss how this simple change of direction and motion can help you make the most of your knitting time.
Note: Should be comfortable with the following: continental knitting, cast on, knit, purl, bind off, k2tog, and ssk.
__4.5mm/US7 needles (preferably wooden single point needles)
