What’s Your Knitting Style?

Thrower, picker, flicker? In this video I briefly cover the six most common knitting styles, and the most common names for these styles.

The yarn I used for demonstration is Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Bulky.

  1. A sister knitter uses the “combination style’ but she refers to it as “Hillbilly Knitting.” I tried it with a swatch and surprisingly, I found that my tension differences weren’t apparent between the knit rows (usually tight) and the purl rows (usually looser). I’m thinking of it for my next stockinette project.

  2. Hi Staci,
    What is the project that you have on the photo of this video – with different colors? It looks interesting.
    I love the way the purl stitches create patterns on the background of the knit stitches.
    I have been admiring you for years! Well done.

  3. I do a mixture of English and flicking and hold the right needle like a pencil. It looks awkward, and painful, to me when I see people holding the right needle from above.
