From what I've seen cottage knitting seems to be just holding the yarn differently. I've heard the underarm thing is called armpit knitting. Portuguese knitting is using a when there is a pin or so ething to guide the working yarn. Sheperds knitting only comes up with Tunisian crochet at least for me.
