Continental Purling Question
I am trying like crazy to teach myself to knit. I have crocheted so long that the only way I can knit is the continental method. One question though. How do you get the yarn to the front when you start purling?

Have you watched this? I don't knit continental, but I wasn't sure if you'd watched the video.

Yes, try the video. They are very good and easy to follow.

BTW...I used to crochet, but I find english method easier. It took me a few tries, but I love it now.

See, I am a crocheter, too. I could not figure out English method for the life of me. I love continental knitting. These videos did wonders for me. Definitely try them out!

Just move it between the needles and start using it from there. I guess we didn't answer your original question at all, huh!

You just move it between the 2 needles without wrapping it around the needles.
