"I am a leftie, a true, right-brainer in all senses of the word. However, I learned when I was 7, to knit right-handed. I believe that the stronger hand is needed to hold the needle with all the stitches on it. I do crochet & embroider…"

"Back to the continental style of knitting (Knit-picking). For years I had a very awkward style of knitting because of being left-handed and even gave up on it for awhile. I finally found a DVD at Craft Warehouse on Continental Knitting, and I knit…"

"I knit Continental style (some call it knit-picking) and have no trouble at all. It's the same as knitting right-handed but the yarn is wrapped around your left fingers. Being left-handed, it comes more naturally to me than it does to…"

"HI..I learned to knit (I am right-handed) from my left-handed mom at the age of 8 years and I am now 60. I stood in front of her when she was knitting and saw that I could do it right handed. When she purled I knitted and when she knitted I purled.…"

"Hi, I now knit "leftie" and love it. Someone took the time at my age 58 to not give up on me. I just love both knitting and crocheting. I am just doing simple things right now, but hope to advance. The only hint I have is that I have to…"

Left Handed Knitter

Hi! New to the website. I LOVE to knit - taught myself years ago with a "Learn to Knit Left Handed" book. I could now kick myself for not trying to learn right handed... Following patterns is sometimes tricky. I learned to knit years ago and stopped for quite a while and just picked it up since I became a grandmother. Does anyone have the solution to making it easier on left-handers? I am a TRUE left hander; can't knit to save my life right handed...
