How to Purl Continental style
Purling continental style is a bit trickier than English style. This is because your left hand must secure the yarn around the right hand needle to pull it through the loop and the action for doing this challenges many knitters. The tension of the yarn is key in performing this properly. Don't get frustrated if it takes a lot of practice, it will be worth it!. See this video for tips on how to tension the yarn for continental knitting.
Continental style, a.k.a. European style knitting means you wrap the working yarn with your left hand. This is often said to be the faster way of knitting because you do not remove your left hand from the needle to wrap the yarn. It can be a very effective technique if you are doing two-color or fair-isle knitting. If you naturally hold the working yarn in your left hand, then Continental knitting is probably your style. I've also noticed that continental knitting can be more natural for knitters who also crochet and thus feed the working yarn with their left hand.
