Portuguese knitting is easy to learn and master. It’s fast, efficient and low strain on wrists, hands, arms, shoulders and upper back. Individuals with pain in these areas may find the Portuguese knitting method more comfortable than English or continental knitting as it uses different muscles and movements. 

Students also remark how neat stitches and fabric look with this method. More advanced techniques like colourwork are also easier when using the Portuguese method. 

In this class, you will learn how to cast on, bind off, knit, purl and work yarn overs, increases and decreases. You will have an opportunity to start a project of your choice in this class.
