Portuguese Knitting PinRegular price $4.00
Portugese knitting is a style which involves different movements from the usual Continental knitting styles. What also makes this style so unique is the tension of the yarn coming from a pin which is attached to the chest of the knitter.
Portuguese knitting has many benefits including stopping strands of yarn becoming tangled and keeping a even tension, great if your knitting stitches start off loose and finish tight at the end of your project.
It allows you to knit with very small movements including a flicking motion with your thumb.
There is a Craftsy class on Portuguese knitting that teaches you how to do it and perfect it, speeding up your knitting in the process: find out more HERE.
