Does it make a difference which way the yarn is wrapped around the needle when using the English style? Counter clockwise or just clockwise
Actually it’s counter clockwise, I think, clockwise gives you twisted stitches, not sure though.
Depends which way you look at the needle, and that’s why the clockwise/c clockwise question confuses me. You wrap the same way as you do in continental - with the yarn in back bring it under, to the front and over the needle to the back again.
Sue is right about which way you view the needle. :lol:
It does matter if you don’t want twisted stitches. There is a method called combined knitting that twists on one side and untwists on the other. I recommend learning the traditional way so you won’t have untwist stitches for increases and decreases, etc. There is a video here for both english and continental in the video section.
