Portuguese Knitting Pin

by: Tall Yarns

Portugese knitting is a style which involves different movements from the usual Continental knitting styles. What also makes this style so unique is the tension of the yarn coming from a pin which is attached to the chest of the knitter. 

Portuguese knitting has many benefits including stopping strands of yarn becoming tangled and keeping a even tension, great if your knitting stitches start off loose and finish tight at the end of your project.

It also allows you to knit with limitations such as arthritis and carpal tunnel as the stitches involve very small movements including a flicking motion with your thumb.
