Continental vs English Style knitting
Hello All-

I am trying to teach myself to knit in the continental style. I learned in the english style. My question is this... Have you found your contenintal style to be a tighter knit than your english? If so, (or even if not) is there a secret to getting a looser knit?

Thanks
