  1. I am a lefty and was taught by a righty but this is how I have always knitted and have no explanation for it but it works and I can go fast as well. To me it is an economy of movements.

  2. Sheila – immediately after you purchase a pattern, you are automatically sent an email (to the email address you have on file with PayPal) that gives you your download link. If you do not see the pattern in your Ravelry library or you do not see the download link email, you can send me the email address you have on file with PayPal, and I’ll make sure the transaction went through.

  3. Oh my, this is the way that I knit, too! I taught myself years ago, and this was the natural way that I progressed into it. I never considered letting go of the right needle! I am now working on continental, to decrease hand and wrist fatigue. Oddly, I am left handed, but crochet right handed. Knitting continental is strangely difficult for me.

    Thank you for sharing this; I find this method very fast, too.

  4. I have always knitted too tight and had to consider needle size to adjust for this. However, since working on “flicking” from my old style of knitting as a thrower, I have found that my stitches are so much better. Stitches are more even and nicer. And, believe that I have speeded up. Thank you for “All” your videos. I always look you up first when needing that extra help!

  5. Hi Staci,
    I’ve been flicking for a while now, thanks to your tutorial. I’d never heard of it before seeing your video. It’s so much faster and less stressful on the arm and shoulder. Anyway, I find that I have to wrap the yarn the other way on my right index finger to do it, but it does work. It also means when I’m purling I have to do a motion similar to continental knitting where I have to dip my index finger down to pull the stitch through. Maybe others learning to flick will find this helpful.

  6. Hi, Staci. What is the pattern for the beautiful sweater on your dress form in the background? Thank you.
