como se diz "knitting" em portugues?
Okay, I have to write a composition for my portuguese class, so I'm writing about my favorite hobby. Problem is, I can't find the word for "knitting." The closest I found was "fazer meias," and somehow I don't think that's right. So I thought I'd ask this international bunch if anyone knows the right word???

Is it trico (with the carrot top over the 'o')? I know alguhas de trico is knitting needles, so I'm just assuming.

It is trico. There is a Brazilian yarn company site that has some fabulous patterns. I'll see if I can find it. There were also crochet patterns. :thinking:
