Is There Such a Thing?

I was reading an article which stated try knitting backwards for the following… I’ve looked in all my major how to books… is there such a thing as knitting backwards? I’m still a newbie to this…only have been knitting 1 1/2 yrs…

:x:

Here’s a tutorial I found, although I can’t say I’ve tried it myself. The comments on the site are all positive though:

Scroll down and there you’ll see it Backwards Knitting :smiley:

I think it’s helpful for entrelac, because such small pieces mean a lot of turning. Knitting backwards eliminates the need to turn. I practiced a little bit, and that’s how I taught my husband to knit (he’s left handed, and couldn’t get the continental thing down… he got it backwards though!)
