Portuguese Style Knitting
 
I came across some videos on youtube for this kind of knitting. The needles have a little hook on the end, like crochet needles. Has anyone ever knitted this way or heard of this? It looks kind of interesting.

do you have a link to the videos? I'd like to see that!

here you go. I am googling this now, doesn't seem to be a lot of instruction on this, just peoples opinions on it

That looks kind of weird to me. Kind of like knit/crochet combo or something. I also can't imagine having the yarn going around my neck. That would be very uncomfortable I think.

Yeah, what she said. :) "Spider Web" comes to mind. *lol*

Honestly, it looks quite complicated.

i watched those videos too, but don't let that crochet hook fool u, they're not doing any actually crochet, they're just knitting with a crochet hook. all they do i just the hook to pull the loops through the knitted stitches, if u know what i mean (does that make sense?)

Yep. So now it's not complicated. It has sidestepped to cumbersome. :roflhard:

It does look a little complicated to me too... but something I think I would still like to tackle. Maybe. :happydance:

And let us not forget about portability. Oh I can see it now, some knitter sitting on a bus with yarn coiled about the neck. *snicker* And to think, I once thought conti was complex. Hehehehe ... :rofl:
