Yep, Sue is right. The difference between english and continental is only which hand you hold the working yarn. You may pick up the yarn differently, but it's really only a method of knitting. If you need to show her the videos for english knitting.

True left handed knitting is when you completely reverse the way you hold the needles. The left needle would be the empty one and the right is the one with the stitches.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.
