What are these weird pieces of jewelry in our shop? Everyone wonders that! If you've been in a class with Valerie, you've probably noticed her knitting with the yarn going up through a pin she wears on her shoulder, and going back down to the knitting. And you've heard that she likes purling more than knitting. She's doing Portuguese knitting! Take this class, and learn all the ins and outs. If your hands hurt when you knit, this method might be an alternative. If you've taken Portuguese knitting before, you can take this one again and work on a project. $38 Supplies: Easy Looped Scarf pattern, appropriate needles and yarn, a knitting pin.
