I have had many knitters since 2009, when I really got serious about knitting (though I learned in 2007), ask me how I knit so fast using the English method. I’ve wanted to make a video about it for a really long time, and I’ve finally done it!
I will say, though, that I recommend giving this a try if you’re frustrated by knitting slowly and it takes away from the joy you find in knitting. I would urge you to focus on enhancing your knitting experience, not just learning to knit faster for the sake of it because then it can take away the joy found in the process.
Also, if you are a knitter who takes their hand off the needle to loop the yarn, I assure you I’m not picking on anyone with this video — in fact, that’s part of the bone to pick that I have with a lot of the “speed-knitting” or “knit faster” videos out there.. they depict English knitting that way as they bash it in comparison to “how awesome Continental is” and all that. Which I dislike. You knit how you knit, and you should only change it in the event that, as I said, you wish to enhance the process for yourself.
That’s my two cents / disclaimer for this video. I hope you find it useful!
