Let’s look at Lever Knitting, a little closer and a little more in-depth. In today’s episode of Taking Back Friday, I show you how I learned to knit with the Lever Knitting style, how to do it, and why it might help you knit faster.
In these demonstrations, I show you how I knit with the lever style with both long straight needles held under the arm as well as circular knitting needles. I also show tensioning the yarn in two different ways in my right hand. And finally, I demonstrate how crazy easy it is to knit 1×1 ribbing with this technique.
If you give these techniques a try, just know that it will feel a little awkward at first. But just give yourself time to practice and you’ll definitely start to feel comfortable in a couple of weeks, if not a couple of knitting sessions!
