View Full Version : Question

I've changed over from the throw method to the continental method of knitting. I can knit pretty well using this but the purling looks bad. It's loose and I can't seem to get the hang of it. I've watched the video over and over. Any tips? I've just been doing dishcloths so no big deal but I just don't seem to be catching onto it like I did the knitting part.

I'm a contintental knitter and I can tell you this: with most yarns my purling is looser too, and I solve it by wrapping the yarn around my pinky an extra time when I'm purling to control the tension better. Works like a charm :thumbsup:

I'll try that. Thanks
