Andrea Wong teaches Portuguese knitting in this classic DVD. DVD produced by Andrea Wong.

You've seen the Continental (picking, yarn in left hand) or English (throwing, yarn in right hand) methods of knitting. Many knitters learn only one style and stick to it no matter what knitting situation they encounter. But there's a big advantage in knowing alternative methods, especially for texture or colorwork.

Expand your repertoire of knitting styles with Andrea Wong. If you've ever seen someone work with the yarn around the neck or caught in a pin, that's the Portuguese method, used in the Mediterranean region and parts of South America. Learn how to manipulate the working yarn with your thumb--the same stitches, just a few new moves. Watch Andrea demonstrate all the basic stitches, plus several types of cast-on and cast-off, colorwork, beadwork, and more!
