Portuguese Style Knitting
I came across some videos on youtube for this kind of knitting. The needles have a little hook on the end, like crochet needles. Has anyone ever knitted this way or heard of this? It looks kind of interesting.

That looks kind of weird to me. Kind of like knit/crochet combo or something. I also can't imagine having the yarn going around my neck. That would be very uncomfortable I think.

Yeah, what she said. "Spider Web" comes to mind. *lol*

Honestly, it looks quite complicated.

i watched those videos too, but don't let that crochet hook fool u, they're not doing any actually crochet, they're just knitting with a crochet hook. all they do i just the hook to pull the loops through the knitted stitches, if u know what i mean (does that make sense?)

Yep. So now it's not complicated. It has sidestepped to cumbersome.

It does look a little complicated to me too... but something I think I would still like to tackle. Maybe.

And let us not forget about portability. Oh I can see it now, some knitter sitting on a bus with yarn coiled about the neck. *snicker* And to think, I once thought conti was complex. Hehehehe ...
